"The Jupiter-8V maintains the standard we have come to expect from Arturia. it's a beautifully warm and expressive synth that's equally at home in pop tunes or experimental sound design. The overhaul of the presets management system and the addition of the user-friendly sequencer and effects make the instrument immediately accessible to beginners as well as experienced users, which hasn't always been the case with these complex synths."
"I have chosen to create a track from the period in which the Prophet 5 and VS rained supreme synth: the 80's. The bass sounds are deep, the highs very airy and atmospheric. It was easy to achieve the 80's funk disco style of the time using the Prophet V."
12 minimoog V tracks in Cubase SX. No additional samples were used. All the sounds used in this piece are available in a preset bank of the minimoog V plug-in. Many thanks to the author, Jean-Michel Blanchet.
Fabrizio Massara (a.k.a. fab) is a keyboardist/composer/producer. He's a member of Baustelle , alternative pop italian band (two albums released, now signed to Warner Music Italy). He makes (real) love with (virtual) synths when the girls fall asleep...
This ambient track showcases some deep SEM pads and a sequence that gets a very mineral sound from the notch position of the filter.
Thanks to the Voice Programmer, the panning of each voice is cycling which brings a spacialization effect typical of the 4 and 8 Voice models.
All sounds are from the Oberheim SEM V including the percussion.
A modern jazz piece performed on the Wurlitzer V by Scott Kinsey.
The demo also features ARP 2600 V and SEM V synth sounds.
The Wurlie sounds good in the mix, almost like a 1969 Miles Davis record with a modern flavor.
