The JD-XA was... interesting for a while but next to the OB-6 is was clearly not up to snuff so I let it go without remorse. Roland could have made more of that synth's analog engine but it still wouldn't sound like OB-6.

The Prologue sounded terrible for an analog.
Of all the gear I've sold over the years, my biggest regret is selling my rack mount OB6. The brass sounds were classic and never duplicated.
