Intense, warm & futuristic synth sounds ooze from the Jupiter 6 effortlessly. High quality construction throughout the entire unit with nice synth action on the keyboard, smooth filters (if a bit soft on the touch) and a rugged casing that insures your Jupiter will be around for years to come.

The Jupiter 6 excels at making great noises(often courtesy of the random LFO waveforms that can be assigned to either VCO), thick and lush pads or kinetic waveform effects. The sheer amount of good, usable sounds capable on the Jupiter 6 are amazing; the Jupiter 6 can be used anywhere in a mix--lead, bass, background, noise, organ, pads--whatever.

Excellent control available, with assignable VCO, VCF on both the LFO button and pitch bender. Coupled with an arpeggiator, the Jupiter 6 creates a lot of options in regard to sound control.

Overall, the Jupiter 6 is a professional, high-quality instrument deserving of the Roland name. Useful in any role or music style needing thick, warm synth sounds. As an added benefit, the Jupiter 6 is impressive looking--shaming any modern keyboard on mere looks alone.

If you like the Jupiter 8, and cannot find/afford one--check out the Jupiter 6. In my opinion, the Jupiter 6 is a better buy than a Juno 106/60 plus a SH 101 for about the same price.

I wouldn`t call it a poor man`s Jupiter-8 either, the 6 is far more scope soundwise than any other Roland Analog Poly due to it`s multimode filter, shame it doesn`t self oscillate like the JP4 though.

The 8 is sonically far more powerful, organic, and desirable because of this

I have a Jupiter 6 and a JP (jupiter) 8000...I love them both dearly. The 8000 has a more liquid sound to it while the 6 has a rough gritty in yourface sound. The 6's unison mode is really awesome. Another cool feature about the 6 is that you can select up to 3 waveforms per osc. The actual layout of it is almost exactly the same as the 8000's, i.e. the envelopes and LFOs are in the same place etc. If you can find one buy it asap. I love mine dearly!

I would not dare to call it a poor mans Jup-8. Really cool synth no matter how you look at it. They don't make them like this anymore. Have had no problems with it.
