Description : The Roland Jupiter 8 synthesizer is probably the least requiring a special presentation. Immediately after appearing on the music market in the early 80s, he instantly gained worldwide recognition and, despite his age, is still popular. So his appearance in the V Collection was predetermined.
The Jup-8V virtual tool looks completely real, and even the “paint”, which has his name written in the corner of the case, is slightly worn. On the front panel there are controls with 54 synthesis parameters. The basic part of the synthesizer contains two oscillators with a set of switchable waveforms, a mixer, a single-pole pass-through high-pass filter (HPF) without resonance, a resonant low-pass filter (LPF) with switchable slope (12/24 dB / oct), LFO, amplifier (VCA ), two envelopes (for filter and amplifier). Moreover, any of the two envelopes can control the filter. The set of initial waveforms of oscillators is small, but they can be synchronized and modulated, receiving many new forms. When using frequency modulation, not only noise and bell bells are produced, but also clear “glass” sounds.
As for the “sound power”, then in the version created by the Arturia engineers, the synthesizer also received new synthesis possibilities, as a result of which it became possible to make a sound that Jupiter 8 could never produce before. These innovations are assembled into four additional modules, which are accessible on the expansion panel.
