I agree but perhaps a little too similar to a DX-7 so people get nightmares hahah Imo the worst of these synths to program is the Alpha Juno's...the Alpha dial straight up sucks...the 8P and 3P way of doing things is much easier..in fact pretty much child's play if you know your "enerope" from your filter lol (Roland miss speled envelope in the 3P manual..and I like to call them enevropes now)
The bad bits about the 3P mainly are no Mono/Legato mode, only receives on CH1 and ALWYAS switches on in OMNI without the upgrade/mod
It's a pretty versatile synth sound wise to be honest for what it is imo, it best shines at sting sounds I think and it can totally nail those Gary Numan type synth lines like on Cars...
Did a few examples here
