The Fantastic New Jupiter-50 Synthesizer
The All New Roland Jupiter-50 Synthesizer
A few years back Roland released the Jupiter 80 Synth to much acclaim. It was modelled on the classic Jupiter 8 and aimed at professional musicians who need a synth, piano and literally thousands of live pre sets in a stage piano sized unit. Well Roland has been at it again with the introduction of the Jupiter-50 Synthesizer at Musikmesse 2012.
Combining the sounds and expressiveness of the Jupiter 80 and the portability of the JUNO series of keyboards, it brings the SuperNATURAL Sound Engine and professional performance to all applications. This 76 note weighted keyboard uses the same analogue components as its big brother even down to the D/A Converter.
Containing 1500 SuperNATURAL Synth Tones, 70+ SuperNATURAL Acoustic Instruments, 128 voices, 2560 live sets and a plethora of multi effects we are sure the Jupiter 50 will contain something for everyone. You can chose, stack and edit any combination of four tones to create personal and customized live sets. The advanced effects engine will inspire and help you create sounds that have never been heard before. In use the Jupiter 50 isn’t at all complicated to program. It simplifies the sound-design process with its colour-coded front panel, fast-access buttons and sliders, and Registration/Live Set architecture logically categorized and instantly available from the off. The onboard audio recorder allows you to capture your ideas and performances instantly then export them to USB memory. It also lets the user import WAV, AIFF and MP3 files and control them from the Jupiter 50 itself as live backing tracks.
Weighing in at a mere 11kg, the Jupiter-50 is light for a “professional” keyboard/synth, while still offering the user the quality of a high end instrument making this incredibly travel friendly. If you think that this is not enough then the Jupiter-50 comes bundled with SONAR X1 LE and Jupiter-50 Control Surface Plug-In for SONAR. By using this you can have ultimate editing control over your synth.
