    You've convinced me not to. I do like the crustiness and I got it for a good price. The sampler itself is in perfect condition.. it looks like its right off the assembly line, the disk drive's got a few dings though. The MMT-8 is gone though, I tried going all hardware, but computers offer too much. I sold the DDD-1 to some guitarist that doesn't need the sounds, just something to play along with. I don't have any tolerance for claps that sound like someone stepping on a bag of chips. Some people do though.

    If any newbie is reading this, take this advice:

    Do NOT buy cheap gear(Cheap as in low quality) even if you're just looking to learn on it, you will be mad that you did in the end. The only exception would be if you if you're looking to make your sound crusty, like Ukcoolat.

    Unless you want to sell the S612 to me? hahaha

    Yeah I had an MMT8 for about a week - a mate had bought one and I wanted to borrow it (cos orbital used them), but didn't like it. Rather use a computer for my sequencing (but there it stops really on the computer - i hate soft synths or samplers! - YES that INCLUDES reason.)
    Whyyyyy why mm big monkeeee pie. Donkeee go pieee-yieeeee.

    Heh, I hear that. That's why I've been thinking about letting it go.

    UKCC,

    I *highly* recommend you check out a JD-990 instead of a JV-880. The JV-880 is characterless, and editing parameters is a pain in the *** - tons of menu scrolling.

    The JD-990s go from anywhere between 300-450 and blow the JV out of the water in character, effects, and options for sound manipulation. Plus the OS is very easy to use.

    Yea..

    I've seen the JD990, but never actually used one. I know that its basically a rack version of the JD800 keyboard (is that right?) which would lead me to believe that its not got 'real' sound in it, which is what i need. I already have a JP8000 and an AN1x which are great for analog reconstructions, and 2 real analog synths - so im not looking for more of the same - I just want a module with some real strings, pianos and general bread and butter sounds in - i know the JV880 can give me those and at a low price (on second hand market its dirt cheap!) - but if the JD990 is capable of such things too - I'll check it out...

    What do you think?

    It went like this:

    JD series
    JV series

    JD-800 and JD-990, pretty much the same except that the 990 is more flexible effects wise and has ring modulation as well as cross-modulation and an "analogue" feel for patches.

    The JV-880 is pretty much a bread and butter synth, and is at the low line of the JV-series, where as the 990 is at the max of the JD series.

    The JD has all the bread and butter sounds the JV has and more. Trust me, I own them both and would easily get rid of the JV way before the JD. The JD is actually an inspiring PCM synth.
