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.

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.

It's almost like having a photograph of the Jupiter-8 hardware on your computer. Having used our father's unit, we find that the software has revived older memories.

The Jupiter 8 is one of my all-time favorite synthesizers. When I first played the Arturia Jupiter-8V, I was amazed and instantly taken back to the first time I played the original.

Loaded with effects and extra filter settings I can now look back at my Jupiter-8 days and smile. The best ghostly strings ever and hi pass filters in memory.

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...

I love the warm sound. The Modulations are much better than in the original. The Sequencer is amazing. And the Effects are really cool. Like all the Arturia-stuff : FAT !!!
