Roland JD 800
64 internal sounds (editable) 64 + sound card optional ram
108 samples

UTILIZATION

Machine can not be more direct, pedagogical, didactic for programming (in the philosophy of the time)
Everything is easy to program for all orders, all the parameters are physical, facade, and the values ​​shown on the digital display in real time.
The edition is fast, then you can create sounds hair that one would want to hear ... It's the highlight of the bike.
The effect block is of high quality audio today it seems.

The edition is fast, then you can create sounds hair that one would want to hear ... It's the highlight of the bike.
The effect block is of high quality audio today it seems.

SOUNDS

Sounds good then:
This is an engine output 91 so she brings in her about everything that has better (and agreed) as synth sounds of the 80s. Must not ask him to make realistic acoustic instrument sounds is not his thing! This is a synth that is done to make synth sounds! This is where he can succeed at the game today!

Top sounds, yet currently remains the evolutionary layers (though less complex than on a Korg Wavestation), some powerful bass sounds, lead and some nice sound pop / rock of the 80s ... with great sound quality! Superb quality filters ..
Where it is very limited this is the number of core samples present in the bike (108) that when hundreds and hundreds of sound banks were surveyed, it always ends up finding the same types of sounds grains or sounds. There are more little surprising or original, must program a patch is finely made in the cocktail samples selected departures (of which there are 4 possible maximum for a patch) to try to hope make a sound that surprises ... Besides Palette feature is very interesting for "mixer" in real time on each sample in the same patch: in terms of volume but also in terms of cutoff, reso ...

The quality of the keyboard except that age well but once again is very comfortable from the point of view of the relationship between touch / load / velocity. The weak point is that we have need of incredible strength (several hundred Newton! Quasi body weight) to use the aftertouch, once it managed the expressive qualities are obvious.

OVERALL OPINION

For the time it was the best! Even now I'm a fan of his grain sound. In lots of productions of the time (90) could easily be recognized by saying "Waaah the monstrous synth sound ..."

In Prince album "Love Symbol" at 92 pieces My name is Prince and The Max, the water from the beginning he is the preset "Iceman". In the album "Gold experience" (95) the water that serves as a transition piece between the Endorphine machine Shhh he is, the "Abyss" patch ..

In the very first album Deep Forest, the first piece opens on a tablecloth is still him preset "Swimotion"
In the album Herbie Hancock "Dis is da Drum", the bass sound of the song Mojuba,'m pretty sure it's him ..

The same sound is also used on albums by George Duke "Snapshot" (93) and Love Is Enough "(96) etc ....

Favorite keyboard in the 90 JM Jarre, Tony Banks (Genesis), Michel Sanchez (Deep Forest), etc ...
It has often been used coupled to Korg Wavestation (the other "Pads machine" in the same time) ...

The keyboard is 61 keys average quality (worse than the keyboard of the M1, better than DX7)
Pitch bend, modulation, portamento keys, solo, and transposes
All parameters are ditables in real time via a slider / paramtre
64 sounds possibility of extension housing rom / ram M256
internal effects
Polyphony, but I do not know limit (24 I think)

UTILIZATION

Trs simple as a slider for the settings ...
He learned even understand how the gnral synthtiseurs
Manuel suitable

SOUNDS

A HUGE MEGA BIG SOUND IN BREATHTAKING EVEN TODAY
The audio standard is 80/90 in this machine

SOUNDS

A HUGE MEGA BIG SOUND IN BREATHTAKING EVEN TODAY
The audio standard is 80/90 in this machine
Do not try ralistes acoustic sounds, it is somewhat in the spirit of D-50:
large tablecloths, sound synths ... but much more standard
You guessed it I'm a fan!
VLOC and aftertouch ok
You want the sound to Jump by Van Halen, and although I put a cot Alesis QSR, a Korg 01W, a Korg Trinity V3 + Moss, a Korg M1, a Yamaha Motif, a Roland D-50, a Roland XP-80 ... Well there is no photo, it's JD, and far away ...... trs trs

OVERALL OPINION

Machine must!
Only BMOL, the polyphony, and cursors that would tend to age poorly, but the sound is so standard ...
DEFINITIONS A. It is the synth if I had to keep just one, it would be him!
Aside from the fact that it is not versatile.

Nice synth of 91, bought new and sold after having used two years back.
8 years and used matre keyboard!
CHARACTERISTICS of the main synth is that it is numrique.
The sound is numrique, shiny, cold desire.

UTILIZATION

Nothing is simple in that simple.

SOUNDS

1 - without the sound effects remain inert, sound of pan
of poor quality.
2 - to jump van halen, I know that OBXA Oberheim!
3 - The worst of roland synth I believe in sound quality.
4 - Submitted as big analog sound, the first form of waves 9
t have analog samples of the minimoog. The sound of jd please some,
sr it, but not me because it has nothing to analog.
I have a jv 1080 and I can say that the sound...…

I have a jv 1080 and I can say that the sound is 1000 times better
on the rack, I also have analog synths real and has nothing
see it. even the juno 106 sounds better.

OVERALL OPINION
