    Can you hook up a JP-8080 rack-mount with a JP-8000 so the 8080 has a keyboard?

  2. vjrei

    The JP 8080 will become a classic, it is one of the best synths ever created. It is very "goa trance" oriented but is very cheap, no more than $500 on eBay. You could get one for base lines and another for leads.

  3. H4NDCRAFTED

    I still want one of these, I have no logical reason, soft synths pee on this from a great height for studio use. I still want the desktop though.

  4. InsertName125

    Too bad we couldn't hear the vocoder voice without his unaffected voice mixed in. We didn't really get a chance to hear how good the vocoder sounds. We just know it has one. That's about it.

  5. InsertName125

    Don't blame the '90s for that one. The video was from the '90s. The hair was strictly '80s.

  6. Ni5ei

    Where can I download the rest of this DVD?

  7. ProAudioDVDs

    @stormshadow2100

  9. itsacorporatething

    @westcoasthaze Yeah. Sometimes, I'll feel inspired, fire up the SP-808 and end up just making weird noises with all of the effects.

  12. ReikaChuaying

    Yup it's from 1996 (Rack 1999), got alot of guts and sound character and is by no means a replacement of the Juno G or Fantom. This one is a virtual analog synth, it has not much to do with modern sample Synths.

    LFO = Low Frequency Oscillator
    Cutoff = Cutoff Frequency typically of a filter, means how bright or mellow a sound is. You "cut" the upper, lower or middle parts of the sound off so to speak.

  13. Niki Wonoto

    is this a synthe an old one, compared to Roland Juno G, or Roland Fantom G6?

    and also, do you have the more-detailed info (or video-links) to explain some synthe terms like LFO, cutoff ? 'cuz i see them in your track-list, but didn't see its tutorial here.
    would appreciate it you can tell me!
    thanks!

  14. itsacorporatething

    lol, I have an sp-808 with a dvd with the exact same guy!
