Take advantage of this Arturia 10-Year Anniversary Special!

It's even better right now as you'll receive a free upgrade to the newest version (V2) when you register your V1 serial number.

The Jupiter 8V Virtual Synth from Arturia offers the unique sound palette of the Roland Jupiter 8. The 8V virtual version is a sound designer's dream. Based on the latest version of TAE, the Jupiter-8V software also offers a host of modern features: an advanced step sequencer, a new line of dynamic effects, a module combining LFO's (called Galaxy), and lots more.

An accurate recreation of the Roland Jupiter-8

The legacy of the Roland Jupiter synthesizers is due to their unique voice architecture and design, creating sounds that were so unreal that they have to be heard. For many musicians no other synths in the world could create analog sounds as cool and as authentic as these.

The Jupiter 8V offered a very interesting combination of a high-pass non-resonant filter and a low-pass resonant filter. The arpegiator and the keyboard split made it a remarkable performance keyboard. Fast envelopes and precise oscillators confer to the Jupiter-8's sounds its famous versatility. You could easily make 'phat' or 'Crystal' sounds with it.

Innovative additions

With the Jupiter-8V Arturia brings this magic back while adding a new generation of features opening a unique and contemporary sound palette:

¢The Galaxy allows the user to choose from different LFO types and intertwine them together into a single unique modulation source, giving a new evolving element to the sound of the Jupiter 8.

¢The Jupiter's step sequencer is also an assignable modulation source, which allows for easily generated patterns to be used to control the many interesting parameters of the sound.

¢In addition to the step sequencer and Galaxy modulation sources, each voice now has its own suite of creative effects, which can be inserted into the main synthesizer signal path in each voice. Key parameters from each effect can be modulated by chosen sources, adding a new contemporary dimension to the traditional subtractive synthesis sound of the original Jupiter 8.

I would try another synth first.

By J. Gill

from Lake Worth, Florida

The synth sounds great but, you must have a dongle plugged into a usb port to use it. So, if you intend on using the Jupiter soft synth live on stage, you will have one less usb port to use on your laptop... If I knew this before I bought it I would have gotten something else.

This one reminds me of the "old day's" the analog is spot on. the user interface, real friendly (but read the manual). The patches normal to whacked. and all sound great. Arturia has done it again. The only downside it uses a dongle but I can live with it. this program actually works right out of the box without an update, and none of the endless authorizing procedures other software's put you through. One of my better plug-ins.
