The biggest weakness of the JX-8P and other instruments using its engine is its "slow envelopes". Or actually, the filter envelope. It's evident in the percussion presets. They have great character from the ring mod and sync 2, but the attack on many of them is mushy. Try to do a filter envelope set to all zeroes for a Juno organ with the key click effect, the JX-8P responds with a spit instead of a click. Interestingly enough, routing the same envelope to pitch does not have the same mushy attack. Sync leads are unaffected unless there's also filter envelope involved.

But I have the 101 for when I need precision plucks. The JX-8P family's strength is string/brass/choir/ensemble sounds.

This arrived yesterday. Five12 Vector sequencer woth Expander, a uZeus PSU all in a 60hp Moog boat. Built as a stand alone sequencer for both my modular and self contained synths. I have a lot to learn but I am enjoying not working off a piano roll!

Looks pretty cool. So it can sequence midi gear too it looks like. Is it capable of polyphonic sequencing at all?

That's a really good one, haven't used too much, I'm hoping it can replace Absynth, sadly no granular on it. Would have been nice if you could have put the fx chain before the main filter too.

*Not really*.. it does have a chord/step sequencer mode or 8 sequencer lanes, but nothing piano roll-y.

It's crazy good for mono and drum sequencing though

It's more of a MIDI Sequencer than CV, actually.

The Loopop demo video is pretty good.

Nice. I’ll have to check it out some more. I love sequencers.

Ordered a black Lion KT2A from Sweetwater yesterday. I am curious to compare it to the stock model.
