Last week at Europe’s largest trade show for the MI world, MusikMesse, we were very happily introduced to the Jupiter-80 synthesizer - the latest addition to Roland’s line-up of ultimate synthesizers. Roland’s synths go back to 1981, when Roland created the JUPITER-8 with the goal of creating the most expressive synthesizer possible. Equipped with the leading technology of its day, the legendary Jupiter synth’s unique character and rich sound has remained iconic in the popular musical landscape ever since. Get a first look at the Jupiter 80 synth with Howard Jones inside….
Being the ‘Machine’ in Florence + the Machine, means you need the right kit. Isabella Summers invited Roland to her studio in South London, explaining how she wrote the band’s award-winning record on her best mate, the JUNO-Di synth.
