Thirty years ago, the Roland Jupiter-8 synth redefined the sound of music. The Jupiter 8 looms large in synthesizer history, and any synth bearing the name has a lot to live up to. By combining the legendary vibe of the Jupiter-8 with the stunning realism of Roland’s SuperNATURAL synthesis engine, Roland has made the new Jupiter-80 a force to be reckoned with. It also features a virtual analogue modelled synth, which Roland call a ‘Supernatural Synth’, featuring several virtual analogue waves, the ‘Supersaw’ wave which debuted on the JP-8000 (which is a staple sound for Trance producers) a noise source, plus (like the Nord Stage 2) it also has sampled PCM waves too, though you can’t import your own currently.
According to several user reviews, they have praised a Jupiter-80 for the sonically punchy and versatile synth section; Registrations facilitate musical arrangement in an inspiring way; It’s a solid, robust performance synth with a good keyboard and reassuringly large, friendly controls. Also, some users have complained it for the programming architecture is not well explained; a few gaps in the editing software; No vibrato/chorus effect for organs at this time.
