Wikipedia: “The Roland MKS-80 Super Jupiter is an 8-voice polyphonic analog synthesizer that was manufactured by Roland between 1984 and 1987. It is the only of MKS series of synthesizers to have fully analog voltage controlled oscillators. Contrary to popular belief, the voice architecture is more closely related to the Jupiter-6 synthesizer than the Jupiter-8, the service manual states that “The module board of MKS-80 features the following in addition to that of JP-6, its brother module. ) HPF_ )Low boost circuit in the 2nd VCA. )DC supply current boost circuit.” The unit is fully capable of producing most of the Jupiter-8’s signature sounds, in addition to many sounds unique to the MKS-80. In 1985 out came another revision of MKS-80, known as “Rev 5″, that had no ties with any previous Jupiter’s hardware, as it used a new generation of both Roland VCO’s, VCA’s and filter. The Rev 5 filter was also used in JX-8P, JX-10 and MKS-70 synthesizers.”
