While its name conjures up images of the early-'80s classic Jupiter 8 analog synth, there's nothing old-school about the Roland Jupiter-80. This is no remake -- it's a futuristic instrument built around a huge, 256-voice polyphonic sound engine that combines a punchy, versatile virtual-analog synth with expressive, convincing acoustic instruments, thanks to Roland's Behavior Modeling and SuperNATURAL sampling technology. Designed for the gigging keyboardist, the Jupiter-80's colorful Jupiter 8-style switches can quickly apply tones, layers, and four-way splits. Change your whole setup with one thumb using the glowing, numbered Registration buttons below the keyboard. If you're looking for a fat synth for live performance, with an orchestra's worth of realistic acoustic instruments in a 40-pound box, this 76-key semi-weighted monster is a worthy contender.

Dig Deep into Sounds

Let's look in detail at the unconventional sound structure around which the Roland Jupiter-80 is built. There are two distinct tone generators: SuperNATURAL Acoustic, and SuperNATURAL Synth. You can combine up to four tones (pianos, clavinets, polysynths, you name it) in a "Live Set." Layer or split one or two Live Sets, and add any Solo Tone and any Perc Tone you like (with independent volume, accessible via the dedicated front-panel sliders), and you've got a Registration. The Jupiter-80 can save 256 of these richly-detailed Registration setups, including a snapshot of all your settings. This all adds up to serious potential for building original, complex sounds. Where other synths may boast "1000+ tones" or some such number, Roland doesn't even try to quantify all the combinations possible on this beast. Suffice it to say that with the Roland Jupiter-80, you can banish fakey, pre-fabricated keyboard sounds for good.

SuperNATURAL Acoustic

Roland has really outdone themselves when it comes to recreating traditional acoustic instruments. Choose a guitar patch and play two notes a step or half step apart nearly simultaneously, and you'll hear a realistic bend from one to the next. Play a wider interval, and you'll hear a strum or picked chord. Choose a sax sample and hear the tone change and "growl" as you press harder on the keys, as you'd get when blowing harder into a real saxophone. Or lean into the keys on a violin sound, and hear a natural vibrato take shape. These subtle nuances are all part of Roland's Behavior Modeling technology on all 117 SuperNATURAL Acoustic tones. Strings, brass, woodwinds, pianos, and more all come to life with this boundary-pushing technology.

SuperNATURAL Synth

This board wouldn't be worthy of the "Jupiter" name without a powerful analog-modeling synthesis engine. Fortunately, the Jupiter-80's SuperNATURAL Synth tone generator lets you dig in deep to build tones from the ground up. You can stack three Partials in a Tone and up to ten Tones in a Registration to create a humongous 27-oscillator synth. Each oscillator can utilize vintage analog waveforms designed to recreate those found on the original Jupiter-8, or access one of 350 PCM samples of classic synths, pianos, strings, and more. And you can control all this power from the Jupiter-80's touch-sensitive, full-color LCD screen -- one feature you'd be hard-pressed to find on any vintage synth.

Features:

- 76-note semi-weighted keyboard
- 256-voice polyphony
- SuperNATURAL Acoustic engine pushes boundaries of realistic organic acoustic sounds
- SuperNATURAL Synth engine recreates legendary vintage synth sounds

Past, Present, and Future Sound

The Roland Jupiter-80 nods to its past with lethal, multi-layered SuperNATURAL synthesizer tones so fat you'll need a knife to cut through it, but that's only the beginning of what this powerhouse synth will do. Gigging musicians will love the stockpile of essential sounds onboard, including Roland's famous SuperNATURAL Piano, strings, brass, and much more. The Roland Jupiter-80 puts a fast-access user interface under your fingers--a dream for live performance. Its heavyweight design, complete with metal side panels, recalls the legendary Jupiter but with a modern twist.

Powerful Live Sets Featuring Four-Tone Structure and Registrations

Roland Jupiter-80's sound engine handles four x tones with dedicated DSP per tone as a basic unit "Live Set" for manual performance. Layering of Upper and Lower Live Sets, plus a specialized "Solo" part, means the incredibly massive nine-tone-stack sound. Customized complex settings can be saved as Registrations, and easily recalled during live performance.

Tone Blender

You will love the deep possibilities of the stackable SuperNATURAL architecture and unique features such as Tone Blender, which tweaks values of multiple parameters simultaneously and lets you "Capture" any new combination and save it as a Live Set. Create complex, emotional textures that respond, react, and evolve like nothing you've heard before. Tone Blender can also dramatically enhance your live-performance capabilities by letting you assign its multiple parameters to controllers such as the D Beam.
