I don't find my Jupiter 6 tame at all. It has way more balls than the Prophet T8 (not 08, T8) that I finally gathered up the guts to sell off and ship. Don't miss it whatsoever and will never grab another Prophet (old or new) again. Unless a rev2 Prophet 5 fell into my hands for cheap LOL. I liked the capabilities of the T8 but could never get into its sound and it's worth a lot so out it went.
Have to say I don't agree with this at all. I may program and experiment with my J6 more than my Prophet T8s (I use two of them) - but the Prophet T8 can, for me, range from pure velvet to outright gargantuan. Playing a sawtooth with velocity and aftertouch on filter and velocity is as sweet as it gets, but layering two programs together makes this thing a monster. I have one brassy program on it - don't know how I made it - that uses Poly-mod; and when put through a little chorus and reverb it is absolutely gigantic. it responds to velocity an aftertouch, and all I can say is, it transcends analogue synthesis. It may as well be a virtual acoustic sound. It's so brassy and so responsive, I have never come across anything like it. Epic and symphonic. The Prophet T8 gets a hard time because it has the curtis chips, but I can tell you, I find it absolutely stunning.
