Introducing Jupiter 80 Synth..
Musical genres come and go, but Roland synthesizers crop up time and time again in the history of electronic music.
As technology caught up with the ideas in the 70’s and 80’s, Roland’s synthesiers developed at a remarkable hit rate, with an enviable line-up (to say the least) that shook up the music scene upon release. Much loved by countless musicians, most recently being Brit Award winners Tinie Tempah and Florence & The Machine, the synths from the Roland camp became true classics.
If you’re wondering which synth was the first to have a pitch bend lever, or you can’t tell your Jupiters from your Juno’s, take a look at the Roland Synth Legacy.
One of the most revered prefixes in the history of synthesis returns for 2011. The Jupiter 80 synthesizer pays homage to its legendary namesake with roadproven hardware an massive sound, yet blasts into the future with advanced SuperNATURAL technology.
The Jupiter 80 synthesizer combines Roland’s most advanced synthesis technology, giving you not only an amazingly realistic and organic sound, but a truly authentic performance. Paying homage to the original Jupiter-8 with it’s sleek design, the Jupiter-80 has a 76-key touchscreen and integrates the highest calibre of analogue modelling, digital synthesis and SuperNATURAL expressiveness.
SuperNATURAL Technology - what’s that?
The SuperNATURAL sound engine constantly analyses the player’s natural keyboard performance to produce continuous authentic performance of the selected sound - all without altering the player’s normal keyboard technique. These meticulously crafted SuperNATURAL instruments, now under the control of behaviour modelling, provide the most authentic acoustic playing experience for live performances and studio recordings.
