The Arturia Jupiter-8 V3 is a powerful addition to the family of analog synthesizer recreations by Arturia. Offering the unique sound palette of the Roland Jupiter 8, this virtual version is a sound designer's dream.
This was the flagship synth that put the Japanese manufacturers on the map as serious competitors the early '80's. With its colorful user interface and great sound, the Jup 8 scored a hit among musicians the world over.
By the early ‘80s the Prophet 5 and Oberheim OB series dominated the polyphonic synthesizer market, with no end in sight. And so when it entered the fray in 1981 the Jupiter-8’s overwhelming success took everyone by surprise.
The secret to its popularity was that it sidestepped its competition by bringing something new to the public. The Jupiter-8 was a very versatile sound creation device; it could generate fat or crystalline sounds with equal ease. In fact, the Jupiter-8 sounded the way it looked: sleek and polished.
The electro-pop community was quickly drawn to the qualities of the Jupiter-8. 'Relax' by the group Frankie Goes to Hollywood was produced incorporating a Jupiter 8, and players such as Vince Clarke, John Foxx, and Martyn Ware were also using it. The path to the classic status of the Jupiter began there. Other artists that have used the Jupiter-8 include Tangerine Dream, Underworld, Jean-Michel Jarre, Depeche Mode, Prince, Gary Wright, Adrian Lee, Heaven 17, Kitaro, Elvis Costello, Tears for Fears, Huey Lewis and the News, Journey, Devo, Freddy Fresh, Simple Minds, Jan Hammer and BT.
The reputation of the Roland Jupiter synthesizers is rooted in their unique voice architecture and design. For many musicians no other synths in the world can create analog sounds as powerful and unique as these.
The Jupiter-8 offers a very interesting combination of a high-pass non-resonant filter and a low-pass resonant filter. The arpeggiator and the keyboard split make it a remarkable performance keyboard. Fast envelopes and precise oscillators confer to the Jupiter-8 its famously versatile sound.
For serving up fat brass and smooth strings, biting basses and soaring leads, bells and whistles (literally), the Jupiter-8 carved out its own sonic turf, emerging from the synthesizer wars as a legend in its own right.
The original instrument was known for its lush pads and haunting leads, its ability to split and layer sounds and its flexible arpeggiator. Jup-8 V not only provides these original features, it created an original sound that is respected to this day.
From its gorgeous basses to floating pads and lush strings; our Jup-8 V has a sound as big as the planet Jupiter.
While the original was amazing Arturia wanted it to be mind blowing. They added the ability to patch effects into the voice path further expanding the sound pallet and then added a full function step sequencer and a bold new modulator called the 'Galaxy'. These new innovations take this product beyond Jupiter and back.
