JP-80 Keybed verses...

Postby spottingjonah » 05:13, 9 September 2017

Has anyone compared the JP-80's keybed to other comparable synths and commented? Obviously the JP-80's keybed is pretty amazing. How does it compare to the new Yamaha Montage.

- Compared to my Kronos2 61, the JP-80 is noticeably better, although the Kronos isn't bad.

- Compared to the Prophet Rev2, again the JP-80 is better, although the Rev2 is easily one of the best feeling keybeds I've felt on a DSI synth.

- I've compared it with vintage gear over time, including a D-50, a DX-7, an ESQ-1, etc... The JP-80 just has a fantastic keybed.

Anyone else care to comment?

I have a Jupiter 80 and a Montage 6 in my live rig.

I prefer the Jupiter 80 to the Montage overall but I don't perceive a great deal of difference between them.

If anything the Montage action is very slightly lighter but I prefer it's aftertouch.
