A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY...
Back to the early 80’s, the Prophet 5 and Oberheim OB series dominated
the polyphonic synthesizer market. Having that in mind the Jupiter-8’s
success, initiated in 1981, took every one by storm.
AN ACCURATE RECREATION OF THE ROLAND JUPITER-8
The legacy of the Roland Jupiter synthesizers is due to their unique voice architecture and design, creating sounds that were so unreal that they have to be heard. For many musicians no other synths in the world can create analog sounds as cool and as authentic as these.
- The Jupiter-8 offers a very interesting combination of a high-pass non resonant filter and a low-pass resonant filter.
- The arpegiator and the keyboard split make it a remarkable performance keyboard.
- Fast envelopes and precise oscillators confer to the Jupiter-8’s sounds its famous versatility.
You can easily make 'phat' or ‘Crystal’ sounds with it.
With the Jupiter-8V Arturia brings this magic back while adding a new generation of features opening a unique and contemporary sound palette:
The Galaxy allows the user to choose from different LFO types and intertwine them together into a single unique modulation source, giving a new evolving element to the sound of the Jupiter 8.
The Jupiter's step sequencer is also an assignable modulation source, which allows for easily generated patterns to be used to control the many interesting parameters of the sound.
