Trusted musician and artist reviews for Roland Jupiter-8
Based on 8 Reviews and 40 Ratings
Excellent bread & butter synth.
Legendary synthesizer that excels at design/interface/performance capability and is simply pretty great in all other aspects. The very pinnacle of bread & butter polys. I think many synths sound better but no other vintage synth is such a solid, complete product.
One of the best Polys I've ever owned
I have had 4 of them over the years all different to each other, all varying conditions and with various minor ailments, but one thing they all had in common was MOJO, it is an organic, fat sounding vibe with a hifi top end, super fast envelopes and a snappy,zingy, creamy filter, super cross modulation and a fearsome unison button. I used it on many of my Automatic Records releases in the early 2000's.
Lush pads, mean, bass. I got mind for $600 in 1996. It had some sort of memory expansion mod which would not allow it to store patch memory but that has all been removed now and it saves patches just fine. It also had a JL Cooper sequencer attached to it but this also has been removed and it is back to stock condition. The cross modulation is nice.
