This was the flagship synth that put the Japanese manufacturers on the map as serious competitors the early '80's. With its colorful user interface and great sound, the Jup 8 scored a hit among musicians the world over.

Crystal clear fatness

The original instrument was known for its lush pads and haunting leads, its ability to split and layer sounds and its flexible arpeggiator. Jup-8 V not only provides these original features, it created an original sound that is respected to this day.

Innovative sounds

From its gorgeous basses to floating pads and lush strings; our Jup-8V has a sound as big as the planet Jupiter.

Press Clipping

"Arturia Jupiter-8V sounds fantastically 3D with the beautiful, rich low end and the famously buzzy quality expected of older Roland oscillators. The filters stay rich and sweet as they close down, my gold standard for how any synth sounds. I found Jupiter easy to blend with acoustic instruments in a way that never felt like I was "flattening" the mix."
Tape Op Magazine
"All in all, Arturia's Jupiter-8V is an excellent recreation of the famed Roland '80s synth with several intelligent sound sculpting accoutrements added for taking the original sound into new wonderful directions."
Futuremusic.com
"Arturia has produced a natural maturation of the classic. The synthesis is a superb match, and the new features feel right and elegantly provide what users originally had to concoct outboard workarounds for."
Remix Magazine
"Jupiter-8V is a must have for all lovers of the Roland "J-sound" and definitely worthy of consideration for those looking for a contemporary-sounding analog companion to today's sampler hybrids."
Remix Magazine
"This softsynth is a total TEN STARS! The name Jupiter 8 is definitely within my galaxy of "Vintage Synths" but Arturia has completely knocked this synth eons into the future and brought the Jupiter 8, perhaps the greatest analog synth of all time, from 1981 to 2007 and beyond with the incredible add-ons. With their careful, meticulous attention for preserving the true nuances of this synth and then by adding visionary and complementary modules to the Jupiter-8V; I truly believe that this softsynth should be in everyone's collection for one simple reason... TO CREATE! That's what the Jupiter 8 was all about and Arturia has given us an instrument that can produce more new sounds than most of us have heard in a long time. Trust me. Go Out and Buy The Jupiter-8V! You will not be sorry!"

"This synth sounds wonderful, with the majestic warmth of Roland's original Jupiter present in every sound. My hat comes off, my bow is deep, my thanks to Arturia are heartfelt."
Future Music
"After a solid month of living with the Jupiter-8V, I can honestly say that it's my favorite Arturia virtualization so far, perhaps even my favorite analog soft synth ever. -Key Buy Award-"
Keyboard US
"An instrument with a great sound, very expressive, easy to use, beautiful to see, with a lot of new features and an inspirational charm, a very low CPU load - unlike many other VSTi - and it's also not expensive... so what are you waiting for?"
Rec'N'Play
"The Jupiter-8V is a worthy addition to the Arturia family. It sounds superb, is easy to customise and a joy to play. - MusicTech Excellence Award -"
Music Tech Magazine
"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."
Music Tech Magazine
"What we have here is a big synth with a big sound and a big appetite. Rest assured, though, that the Jupiter-8V is well worth the processing power - this is arguably Arturia's best effort yet. -Computer Music Performance Award-"
Computer Music
"Arturia has done the original Jupiter-8 justice. Not only has the company captured the original instrument's essence and character, but have upped the ante by adding new and creative touches that expand the reach of its sound. As far as I'm concerned, this is not only the strongest analog emulation on the market, but is quite possibly the best soft synth I have yet encountered. Once hooked up with a good control surface, this could be the only virtual analog you'll ever need - and it will definitely be my go-to instrument of choice in the future."

Out of this world innovation

While the original was amazing we wanted it to be mind blowing.

We added the ability to patch effects into the voice path further expanding the sound pallet and then added a full function step sequencer and a bold new modulator called the 'Galaxy'. These new innovations take this product beyond Jupiter and back.

The Arturia synths are perfect for the background scoring of the sound-tracks we produce here at Bollywood... For people who have worked with the original machines like us, the Arturia recreations are just top-class.

I'm having a lot of fun with the JP8V, just like Devo and Depeche Mode had with the original hardware synth. This is much easier to bring to concerts and rehearsal rooms though, and it sounds really, really great...
