Jx10 v's Jx8p

Postby Scottf » Fri Jan 14, 2011 4:19 pm

I don't really understand the differences?
I like the Jx8p... dosen't that have way better midi than the JX10.
With the Jx10 polyphony is doubled, ya? but like I ain't really even able to play anything for the moment, I don't think I'll ever need extra polyphony
Could someone give me the advantages of the JX10 please?

The ability to split/layer two seperate patches.

This. Esp. the layering part. When you combine two separate "tones," you can get some really nice, slow, evolving, deeply textured pads that JX8P just can't do.

A really nice semi-weighted 76 key keyboard. The JX10 is essentially 2 JX8P sound boards inside, though apparently the chorus sounds slightly different .

Dual mode is static, V-mix and V-switch are dynamic, the ability to mix/switch the two engines via velocity is my favourite thing about the 10P.

New Firmware under Beta testing for the JX10 Improves the sysex control to full tone A and B editing, use of the front panel sliders to edit tones/adjust tone parameters while playing a patch,replaces the useless sequencer with a Midi clockable Arpeggiator and generally speeds the operation of the machine up....all on a drop in ROM replacement.

Old vid of one of the other Beta testers
Watch on youtube.com


Currently testing v3893 which fixes any of the problems in his other vids

Alternatively, the MKS70 is a JX10 in a rack with proper MIDI.

so is the jx8p= to a dx7
and the jx10= to a dx7ii

does that make sense? the dx7ii can make 2 diff dx7 sounds layered (although people would argue the dx7 sounds better than the dx7ii in single layer sound)

basically is the jx10 able to do pretty much 99 percent the jx8p can do, as well as double layer and splits?
