    I know sure Sister Bliss is always playing the JP-8000 during Faithless concerts.
    I heard they use the Triton too.

    Maybe you'll learn more on :http://www.vintagesynth.org/artists/

    HANS ZIMMER (film composer for tons of movie such as Gladiator, AI, etc..) uses a lot of modular synthesizers, but lately when he won an Oscar (for the music of gladiator) he was shown in his studio, and.... CREAMWARE SCOPE SP was in the background on a big screen (expensive version of Pulsar II basically)

    Many old-fashioned PROs use Protools on Mac.

    But if I had the ca$h to set up a pro studio I'd go for 1-2 Scope/SP cards with the Z-link interface, on PC.

    And, I've seen a lot of live shows where Sister Bliss played the JP-8000 too. That was long time before CS6X was even out yet. JP-8000 is old technology now anyway, and it never really was that special.

    I second what you said about the JP8000. even when it was just released KEYBOARD magazine found the filters toy-ish with HUGE noticable "Steps", and an overall weakness in the grain.

    I LOVE MY VIRUS B. I'll never repeat this enough I think. I recommend it to anyone. The Novation Supernova II PRO-X is also an amazing tool.

    more break beat, but DJ Shadow recorded the entirety of "Entroducing" on ProTools with the sampleCell hardware cards/sample banks.

    You can see a lot of The Crystal Method's gear at
