I think your kiwi-30 upgrade is way more sophisticated than the old JH though, that was mostly a firmware update. I'm already majorly impressed with this! It doesn't evensound like the same instrument anymore I swear! Much improved. And adding an LCD screen to something that never had one before, very impressed! Jordan - USANow the Kiwi-30, for me, is on par with the MKS-80. The MKS-30 was always more characterful than the MKS-80 and later Roland synths because of the filter, and now with three envelopes, it goes places the MKS-80 can’t. David - USA
