Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

We have migrated to a new server. As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password. If that fails, I can set a password for you, you can contact us at the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

Ok, so finally I'm going to get me one of these! :D It will be sent to me friday...loooong wait...and it will be at my place sometime next week.
It was in good condition and I'm also getting the Dance cards...whatever they contain. It's going to be so fun to try out Rimberts patches and to program a digital synth (I have programmed my analogues and VA:s but never a "digital").

Sorry, I have no meaning with this tread...I'm just happy! :D :lol:

Has anybody got some soundteasers for me...? I know that there are JD-800-fans on this forum. :D :D :D

Don't worry - it's very similar, maybe even the same :)

I have a JD800. Try this (El. Piano, CS80 leads, SFX and Drums/Percussion are JD)
Sorry, I have no meaning with this tread...I'm just happy! :D :lol:
... :D I don't blame you... at all ;) :) Congrats!!

Very cool synth ;)

The programming is exactly like a VA, except that it uses samples instead of oscillators.

Great, then I'll feel like home when it comes to programming then. ;)

Great tune GeeJee! :shock: :D Really love that bass too.

The main reason that I went for the JD-800 is it's soundtrack/Vangelis/dreamscape possibilities. Can't wait to combine my stringmachine with the pads of the JD.

Btw: Is Chronologie the only album that Jarre used this synth on?

Bass is D50 ;)

I think the JD will fullfill your expectations, it suits perfectly for the purposes you have in mind :) :D

Radek: Wonderful. There's no other word for it.... Very moving and digital, but at the same time warm and living. :shock: 8)

GeeJee: After listening at bluesynths.com, yours and Radeks mp3:s, I think that I will be very happy with this machine. :D

I cannot believe that it's so cheap right now. Just a few years ago it cost around 650 Euro in ads and now it's more like 450 Euro!?
I'm pretty sure that this will be a classic keyboard in a near future..when the VA-thingy has settled and people start to look for something new in synthesis besides their analogues.

What an amazing synth, it's on my wishlist after the JP8000 :P
If you find one under 450€, it is a bargain !

450 is a bargain, indeed. It's the price I paid for mine. I sold it 2 months later for 500 euros. I'm sure it would have sold for 550, but I wanted to sell it fast.
