Thank you so much for that Ted. Now the things are clear and I really want to trade in or sell this and buy Yamaha PSR models. What you recon?The Roland Jupiter 50 is a "Performance Synthesizer" - that is, it is a synthesizer primarily for live stage performances with a band. It is not an Arranger ("One-Man-Bander"), as it has no onboard Auto-accompaniment features for playing "styles" and has no rhythm generator. Neither is it a "Workstation", as it has no onboard sequencer and is only 3-Part multi-timbral as opposed to 16-Part for a typical "Workstation". For studio production workstation use, it relies heavily on external computer based DAW software to provided the usual workstation features. All of the non-solo performance demos were done with either live-band backing or with audio (WAV/MP3) backing tracks. Some JP-50/80 owners bought the Roland BK-7M Backing Module, but that was rather pricey, so I either just racked mine up with an inexpensive Yamaha or Casio Arranger for real-time backing tracks or used them to generate backing tracks that I recorded to audio for playback at performance time through the JP-50's audio circuits.
Thanks for a pithy definition of workstation. I'd been trying to come up with a short and sweet definition. This is pretty much it.Neither is it a "Workstation", as it has no onboard sequencer and is only 3-Part multi-timbral as opposed to 16-Part for a typical "Workstation".
How much can you afford? With the Yamaha arrangers, generally you get more when you pay more. Or are you looking for used, which is a bit more complex.Thank you so much for that Ted. Now the things are clear and I really want to trade in or sell this and buy Yamaha PSR models. What you recon?
You need One Man Band (OMB). Try downloading the software. I answered you before, but I did not mean to put mixmaster. Hope OMB helps you
