Background video information:
Hi everyone! SynthFreq here with a new composition titled “Industrial World” written by Crystal (msMotif-6), performed by Danielle and Crystal using the following synths:
Jupiter-8: filtered bell patch
Roland D-50: bright ice
Roland Alpha Juno-1: Z-lead
Roland A-90ex: split syn bass/(midi) to JV-1080 pulse lead
Yamaha Motif-6: percussion live set
The Jupiter-6 is an incredible analog synth. All of the Jupiters have a sound that was unlike any other synthesizer and the Jup 6 is no exception. This sound is due in part to classic analog Roland technology in its filters, modulation capabilities and a thick cluster of 12 analog oscillators at 2 per voice. Easy and intuitive programming via front panel sliders, knobs and buttons for all your tweaking needs.
The Jup 6 is a scaled down version of the Jup 8 in terms of programming and polyphony. However the Jup 6 has some major improvements of its own such as newly added MIDI control and better tuning stability! While the Jup 6 does have MIDI, the implementation is very rudimentary and hard to control. The Jup 6 was one of the very first (along with the Sequential Prophet 600) synths to use the then new MIDI protocol, and the implementation on the Jup 6 is far from complete.
Synthcom Systems, Inc. offers the Europa firmware upgrade for the Jupiter-6 which gives it an up-to-date and comprehensive MIDI implementation. All parameters are controllable via Continuous Controller or SysEx. Europa also features an extensive arpeggiator which will sync to MIDI clock with programmable clock divisors and rhythms, and has about 50 more playback variations than the JP-6’s original Up, Down, Up/Down, and Down/Up. A Europacized Jupiter-6 is a thoroughly modern synth with a classic sound.
The Jupiter-6 is an excellent for ambient drones, pads, blips, buzzes and leads.

DEMO by Katsunori UJIIE.
This video shows a Roland Jupiter 8 with the New England Analog Pyxis aftertouch system.
The purpose of this particular video is to show how you can disable the lower 4 voices on the JP8 so that aftertouch wont affect them. However, using the aftertouch sensor on the lower half of the keyboard can still affect how the aftertouch modulates the upper 4 voices. This creates some interesting effects. Using “whole” mode with the lower 4 voices disabled will produce a sound much like a CS80 or something with polyphonic aftertouch.
On this particular Jupiter, there are two separate disable switches; one for disabling filter and VCA effects from Pyxis on lower 4 voices, and another for disabling Pyxis control of VCOs.
Comparing some factory presets of the Roland Jupiter-8 to the cloned ones in the Jupiter-8 Collection bank for the SonicProjects OP-X PRO-II virtual analog VSTi synth.
The original Jupiter-8 clips were recorded by Paolo Di Nicolantonio from synthmania.com and were licensed for this comparison:
The cloned presets in OP-X PRO-II were modeled by ear after these clips and are available in the “Jupiter-8 Collection” bank which can be downloaded here:
The flexible engine of OP-X PRO-II allows to mimic the character and sounds of several different synths. These direct comparison examples show that it works quite well for the Jupiter-8.

This track is all about the Jupiter synth’s, the sound effects, it’s arpeggiator’s & that distinctive Jupiter 8 sound.
The bassline/sequencing using Synthesizers.com & Pro-one.
Additional arpeggio effects with monopoly.
Hope you enjoy.
Background video description:
A fellow VSE’r was wanting to know how to sync his JP-8’s arpeggiator to his DMX. I don’t know of any way to do that directly without another piece of gear in between to convert clock pulses.
The Garfield Electronics Modulator can program trigger pulse rhythms up to 2 measures synched to 24ppq DIN, 24, 48 or 96ppq phone jack.
Here is a Single patch on the Accelerator that attempted to replicate the sound of a Roland Jupiter-8. Chords were played over a sequenced portion of the same patch.
With clever programing a digital synth can sound really analog.
A demo of some of the pad and synth presets in the Roland Jupiter-50 synthesizer.
See some of ‘keybdwizard’s’ other demo videos for examples of other patches such as pianos, electric pianos, organs, bells, guitars, etc.
