I’m testing out a Jupiter Xm....never played the KK (or Prologue for that matter). I like the Jupiter despite its terrible layout and UI. Real problem tho is how “Roland” it sounds. I’m curious if anyone here has play tested both and has some thoughts....really love Korg and could be happy w Microkorg XL plus, Kk or Prologue....
Thanks in advance for any/all insights

How are you liking it so far. Watched some demos. Sounds great 👍. Seems a little deeper and more capable than a KIngKorg

it's incredibly capable and incredibly frustrating.

the interface is a challenge, and there are problems w/ basic stuff (MIDI drift etc). I can't believe Roland made a box w/ 16 buttons that do steps like an xOx sequencer (like JD Xi) and then made it very tricky to use. same with the arps.

I loved the sound of it and the fact that you can layer a Juno 106 with a Jupiter with some Roland digital sounds. but decided against it b/c of the UI stuff. music is challenging enough with fighting the machines.

So you didn’t keep it?

I would probably get the big brother X if I was going for that synth. Unfortunately, i don’t play enough to justify another purchase like that.

Plus, I’m really thinking of getting a waldorf blofeld. Seems like it would be a good companion to the KK.

I spent the time w/ the Xm and learned my way around but ultimately it felt like I hit too many snags and would continue to do so. it was easy to say goodbye....
I only know what I've read about the Waldorf....sounds amazing....
good luck!
