Keyboard 5 octaves of very good quality (well done with the metal sides) both inside and outside. We find typical Roland wheel (without the ability to push forward to the modulation) operation but very soft. Too bad this synth is not equipped with a stereo connection (like Juno) but we can solve this problem. As against it is equipped with a symmetrical XLR output as the big brother JP8. The connection noon is present but very limited in use (note on / off, program change) There are 2 available VCO, synchronizing, adjusted very precisely, with the ability to stack waveforms (not available on the JP8) The sliders and knobs for all functions, it is very significant, although they give a small sense of economy (plastoc entirely) but it works well, and this is the essential!
Polyphony is 6 votes, enough in most cases.

UTILIZATION

It is easy to use, according to the principle of a slider / knob = one function. But there are many features ... and to test all combinations, there for a while. Clear that it is not as flexible as a modular, far from it, but the editing capabilities are very complex, the possibilities of modulation as well. I've never needed the manual yet. We must try and find some for hours, store and play sound found ...

SOUNDS

At his, he does not look like an Oberheim, with fishing and punch typqiquement America. Let alone one ... It looks like Memorymoog already a Prophet 5, with its very sharp sounds, functions sync, filters relatively aggressive, going fast in resonance. It also looks like its big brother the Jupiter 8, but it still stands out in terms of osciliateur. The entire circuitry of the Jupiter 6 is secured by an electronic Curtis (CEM), while the big brother has only the circuitry for filters, VCO 16 is based discète circuitry. In addition, the older brother still has a low pass filter 12dB/oct, which allows him to have a little more punch than the JP6.
The sound of JP6 is slightly nasal. Be difficult to achieve good groundwater soft as a Oberheim, or Korg. on the other hand, no problem for crazy leads, with a great expressiveness. Low is not back either. Or for special effects in this area it goes further than the JP8, filters with more options than the big brother.
It can sound very soft yet all end, or the huge modular Unisono, Detune, together with the VCO 12 on a single note. The arpeggiator is simple but very effective.
An arsenal of his tame ...

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for almost 6 months, and I have not been around ... far from it. I appreciate it for its convenience (memories), strength (yes, it's much less often than a loose Oberheim example ...) and for his great generosity in the sounds. It's not a synth j'utliserais alone, but rather a complement to a set-up. Ideal as a complement to Oberheim, a Korg or the other big polyphonic sound may be more wide and deep.
On the other hand nice, all the little flashing LED night on stage. It's too space.
An investment that is well worth it.
