The Jupiter-8 was a synth that not only inspired a generation of musicians ranging from Prince to Howard Jones, from Depeche Mode to Moby, it was also a unique machine that offered a sharp and crystalline sound while being uniquely phat.
With the Jupiter-8V Arturia say they have brought this magic back. Based on the latest version of TAE -Arturiaâ€™s award winning proprietary technology for analog emulation- the Jupiter-8V offers a new generation of features. Arturia tell us that the integration of effects within the synthesis line allows for drastic modifications of the original sound, with Galaxy, a graphical tool made to program two LFOâ€™s in the same time, you get a unique and innovative source of modulation and with the modulation sequencer you can create new evolving sounds extremely easily.
Howard Jones had this to say about it, â€œMy favourite synth of all time is now a soft-synth thanks to the wonderful people at Arturia. As with all their soft-synth Arturia have given us a meticulously crafted software version of the Classic Jupiter-8 with some fabulous extra features to bring us into the 21st century. This is a must have for all of us JP8 lovers.â€�
The Jupiter-8V is loaded with more than 400 presets made by a selection of top musicians. Fully compatible with the main protocols and systems in the industry, it can be used as stand-alone software or as a virtual instrument.
