MESSE11: 30 Years On...  A New Jupiter

Let's let Roland tell it in their own words...
In 1981, 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 synth's unique character and rich sound has remained iconic in the popular musical landscape ever since. Today, Roland is extremely proud to introduce the JUPITER-80 Synthesizer, a keyboard that represents an unprecedented leap in the pursuit of the most realistic and authentically expressive electronic musical instrument, just as its namesake did when it was launched 30 years ago.
With a sleek industrial design that pays homage to the original JUPITER-8, the 76-key touchscreen-driven JUPITER-80 integrates the highest caliber of analog modeling, digital synthesis, and SuperNATURAL® expressiveness available in a live performance synthesizer. This combination of Roland's most advanced synthesis technologies gives keyboardists not only an amazingly realistic and organic sound, but a truly authentic performance.
The JUPITER-80 Synthesizer also features a complete suite of SuperNATURAL sounds--piano, brass, strings, guitar, and more--resulting in the most realistic array of acoustic instruments ever assembled in a keyboard. The SuperNATURAL sound engine constantly analyzes the player's natural keyboard performance to continuously produce the authentic performance behavior of the selected sound - all without altering the player's normal keyboard technique. These meticulously crafted SuperNATURAL instruments, now under control of behavior modeling, provide the most authentic acoustic playing experience for live performances and studio recordings.
