MESSE12: New Roland Jupiter


Roland has announced the JUPITER-50 Synthesizer, the second release in its contemporary generation of JUPITER-series keyboards. They tell us that, inheriting the stunning sounds and Live Set architecture of the acclaimed JUPITER-80, four separate sound engines can be stacked together to create classic fat synth tones and massive voices and that the lightweight, streamlined design also makes it an essential keyboard for players everywhere. Here's the lowdown in Roland's own words...
Inside, the JUPITER-50 is equipped with a sound engine that is the sonic equal of its big brother, containing all of the SuperNATURAL synthesizer and acoustic tones found in the JUPITER-80. Users can even import JUPITER-80 sound data into the JUPITER-50 or utilize powerful onboard multi-effects and reverb for studio-quality sound processing.
Roland released the JUPITER-80 in 2011, reviving one of the most revered names in synthesizer history and simultaneously ushering in a new era of synthesis innovation. Powered by the SuperNATURAL® Sounds and groundbreaking Behavior Modeling technology, the JUPITER-80 has received universal praise from professionals around the world for its extraordinary sound and expressive, organic realism when emulating acoustic instruments.
With the JUPITER-50, Roland brings this state-of-the-art technology to a slim, light, and portable instrument designed for live performance. It features a 76-note weighted keyboard, with a well-organized user interface that's intuitive to navigate while performing. The color-coded front panel and Registration function makes it extremely simple to find, create, and save sounds in the heat of music making.
A convenient USB Song Player/Recorder lets users play backing tracks and record performances via convenient USB flash media. The JUPITER-50 also functions as a USB audio/MIDI interface, making it easy to integrate the synth with any popular computer music software. Cakewalk's SONAR LE DAW is included, as well as the JUPITER-50 Control Surface plug-in, which gives the ability to control SONAR from JUPITER-50.
Pricing and Availability:
The JUPITER-50 will be available in late spring. At the same time, a Version 2 update for the flagship JUPITER-80 will be released. More information:
