Arturia has announced at the show that the Jupiter-8V is now shipping.Here's what they have to say about it in their own words:
The Jupiter-8V is a perfect blend of classic and modernity: it is the software
recreation of Rolandâ€™s famous Jupiter-8 coupled with a new generation of features.
The result? A wide sound palette, unique and contemporary.
Among those new features are the Galaxy, the step sequencer and the new
possibilities with the effectsâ€™ architecture.
The Galaxy allows the user to chose from different LFO types and intertwine them
together into a single unique modulation source, giving a new evolving element to
the sound of the Jupiter-8. The Jupiterâ€™s step sequencer is also an assignable
modulation source, which allows for easily generated patterns to be used to control
the many interesting parameters of the sound. Besides this, each voice has now its
own suite of creative effects, which can be inserted into the main synthesizer signal
path in each voice. Key parameters from each effect can be modulated by chosen
sources, adding a new dimension to the subtractive synthesis sound of the original
Jupiter-8. It is possible to activate some effects within the synthesis line:
Chorus/Flanger, Distortion, Param Eq, Phaser, Ring modulator. The user can also
add some effects on the output of the synthesizer: Chorus/Flanger, Delay and Dual
Adam Beyer had this to tell us, "If you thought the Moog was amazing the Jupiter-8V will blow
your mind. It is a very well executed software synth that I will definitely use a lot.
Another monster from Arturia, I love it.â€�
