Overview

The legendary Jupiter-8 synth is back as a limited-edition tabletop sound module. Part of the Roland Boutique Series, the JP-08 Boutique is all about hands-on control and that iconic Jupiter sound. Those engaging analog strings and pads, those blistering leads, and those bass patches are yours again, but with better control than ever. With an array of 36 knobs and sliders from the original Jupiter-8 front panel, the 4-voice JP-08 Boutique is highly programmable and encourages sonic experimentation, especially with the built-in speaker and battery operation.

Using Roland's acclaimed Analog Circuit Behaviour (ACB) technology the JP-08 Boutique faithfully reproduces the original Jupiter-8 sounds and adds a few new twists in the form of extra LFOs and expanded VCO range. You can even slide the JP-08 Boutique into the optional K-25m keyboard unit for a self-contained, go-anywhere synth experience.

Huge Synth. Small Package.
The Jupiter-8 was a big synth in every way; physically imposing with loads of knobs and sliders, and most importantly, a huge sound. The JP-08 Boutique retains the big sound of the Jupiter-8, but shrinks everything else – including the price – into a module measuring under 12 in. across.

Hands-on control
With such an expressive sound engine, you'll want to shape the sounds to match your mood. With 36 of the original parameters accessible from the front panel, the JP-08 Boutique is all about hands-on control, and even users of the Jupiter-8 will quickly feel at home as the user interface and programming "feel" is highly reminiscent of the original.

New sound-shaping options
Even though the JP-08 Boutique is an authentic recreation of the Jupiter-8, Roland also included a few extras. The JP-08 Boutique adds several new waveforms to the original architecture, including TRI and NOISE for the LFO and SIN for VCO-1, and both VCOs have an expanded range for even more sound shaping potential.

Develop your ideas with a 16-step sequencer
The onboard 16-step sequencer is a sonic scratchpad that lets you try out new ideas without bringing lots of gear –it can even be used without a keyboard. And if there's no keyboard connected, the ribbon controller lets you preview the sound, making it an ideal way to program patches quickly and easily.

Optional K-25m keyboard unit
The JP-08 Boutique works especially well with the K-25m, an optional 25-key velocity sensitive keyboard that takes your music making to the next level. Once docked in the keyboard, the module's front panel adjusts to three positions for convenient access to the knobs and sliders.

Chain Mode
One of the killer features of the original Jupiter-8 was its ability to create huge pads, splits and layers using its 8 voices of polyphony. The JP-08 Boutique features a chain mode that allows you to connect two JP-08 Boutique modules using the MIDI ports and create one, 8-voice synthesizer, just like the original. Adding additional modules adds another 4 voices of polyphony with each module. This is especially great when controlling the JP-08 Boutique from a larger external keyboard. You can even edit the sound from the master module and control both units. Great for realtime filter sweeps and LFO effects.

Battery or USB Bus power
Some of the best music is made away from the studio, so the Roland Boutique series runs on 4 x AA batteries, ready for when inspiration strikes. Alternatively, you can power the JP-08 Boutique via USB bus power.

USB audio interface for direct recording into your DAW
The built-in USB port also functions as a high-quality 24-bit, 44.1kHz audio interface, for a fast, simple and reliable way of recording directly to your DAW application. You can keep your favorite patches and sequencer patterns safe too, via the USB data backup function.


*NOTE: The JP-08 Boutique is pictured above with the optional K-25m keyboard unit, which must be purchased separately if you want to use the JP-08 Boutique as a self-contained syntheszier. Please see #J26980 to purchase this add-on.
