Jupiter-80 Ships


Roland has been in touch to tell us that the new JUPITER-80 synthesizer is now shipping. They say that the JUPITER-80 represents an unprecedented leap forward in the pursuit of the most authentically expressive electronic musical instrument, just as the legendary JUPITER-8 did when it was launched 30 years ago. Here's how Roland describe the Jupiter-80 in their latest press release...
Delivering instrumental realism far beyond any electronic instrument ever created, 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, while its sleek industrial design pays homage to the original JUPITER-8. The combination of Roland's most advanced synthesis technologies and design features gives keyboardists an amazingly realistic sound and a truly authentic performance feel.
In addition to SuperNATURAL synth tones, the JUPITER-80 features a complete suite of Roland's famous SuperNATURAL acoustic sounds, including grand piano, brass, strings, guitar, and many more. The SuperNATURAL sound engine incorporates newly developed Behavior Modeling that analyzes the player's performance and produces the authentic behavior of the selected sound. This groundbreaking advancement in digital modeling allows players to express realistic acoustic instrument articulations without altering their normal keyboard technique.
The JUPITER-80 is a dream for live playing, both in the studio and on stage. Layering of Upper and Lower Live Sets, plus a specialized Solo part, gives players the ability to create massive sound stacks, and complex customized settings can be saved as registrations for easy recall while performing. The Tone Blender tweaks multiple tone parameters in real time for complex, emotive sonic movement during performance.

The JUPITER-80 Synthesizer is shipping now with a suggested retail price of $3,999. More information:
