Roland's SuperNATURAL Sound Engine
Roland's SuperNATURAL was created by bringing together V-Piano technology and 88-key multi sampling technology. The SuperNATURAL sound engine delivers natural and seamless changes in tonal colour in response to the player's touch. The notes have a smooth and natural decay just like your very own acoustic grand piano. This also comes from Roland spending hours analysing, sampling and synthesizing a variety of word class pianos and instrumenst, then faithfully reproducing these tones and resonance from key to key. Musicians will love the huge library of sounds onboard, including Roland’s famous SuperNATURAL grand pianos, strings, brass, and much more. and much more.
There's not many instruments that people deem worthy of their own website but the Jupiter 80 is one exception to that rule. Check out the Jupiter 80 Website HERE.
JUPITER-80 Version 2 Available in April 2012!
Since the launch of the JUPITER-80, many professional keyboard players and producers have praised its expressive SuperNATURAL sounds and live-performance capability. With the Version 2 software update, the JUPITER-80 offers new features that enhance its synthesis power, and provides more flexibility and creativity for musicians designing their own sounds.
Three Vintage Low-Pass Filters
The filter section is one the most important tool kits for editing SuperNATURAL synth tones. Version 2 adds three types of vintage low-pass filters to the lineup. With the addition of these filters, each with unique cutoff and resonance behaviors, you can faithfully recreate coveted synthesizer sounds of the past.
New MFX Structures
The previous MFX section allowed only parallel connection of the four effects for one Live Set, but with Version 2 you can select MFX structures that let you place up to four effects in series. By using these five MFX structures, you can take full advantage of the JUPITER-80’s powerful collection of effects to create intense electro-synth sounds and intricate ambient synth textures.
New Registration Play Screen
The new Registration Play screen provides easier access to your sounds during live performance. You can see all eight Registrations in a bank at a glance, and select them directly via the touch screen.
Improved SONAR Integration
The Version 2 update offers smoother integration with SONAR software. A dedicated plug-in for your computer lets you easily map the JUPITER-80 to control SONAR’s faders and soft synths.
