This video demonstrates the sound of the Roland Jupiter-6.
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. The Jupiter-6 is known for being a very reliable, programmable, polyphonic, analog monster of a synthesizer!
Now available in an all-white body while supplies last, the compact JD-Xi synth is powerful, versatile and fun.
The JD-Xi has become one of the best selling synthesizers in the U.S. by offering a unique crossover sound engine with the warm, smooth response of classic analog, and the clarity and versatility of modern digital. Players can enjoy fat, warm analog bass and lead tones with ample controls for hands-on tweaking, plus polyphonic PCM essentials like electric piano, brass, guitar, and many others — all in one keyboard.
Equipped with 37 mini keys, the JD-Xi features a true analog synth engine along with a wide selection of Roland’s acclaimed SuperNATURAL digital sounds. This affordable instrument also comes packed with many extras for self-contained music creation, including built-in drum kits, a four-track pattern sequencer, and a gooseneck mic for using the synth’s Vocoder and AutoPitch effects.

An ACB emulation of the Jupiter 8, one of the most iconic polysynths ever made. A tall order. We take a look at the new Boutique JP-08
Roland’s new Boutique range aims to emulate some classic poly synths, with the JU-06 the Juno 106 – how did they do?
An internet friend was asking me how the Roland RSP-550 sounds, in particular the short room reverbs. I really love my RSP-550 and I bought it new when it first came out many years ago.
Just a quick test with the JX-03 and JU-06, each running a sequence. Audio recorded straight out of the JX-03 into the video recorder.
You can hear how wonderfully Roland emulated that noise chorus from the Juno 106.
I’m very happy with the way these these sound. Do they successfully emulate the vintage analog synths 100%? No. They don’t. But they capture the vibe and spirit of what makes their vintage parents so amazing, and at the price they really can’t be beat.
Roland JX-3P (1983) vs. Roland Juno-106 (1984) Analog Synthesizer with identical sound programs.
This video shows the different sound character. The Juno-106 sounds more bassy and the chorus is deeper.
The JX-3P sounds more raw like the JP-8 (the same filter) but without the bass fundament and the chorus is not so deep.
both are great synths and I love both a lot.
no compression or EQ used. only a bit delay.

Roland Juno-60 (1982) vs. Roland Juno-106 (1984) Analog Synthesizer with identical sound programs.
This video shows the different sound character. The Juno-60 sounds more raw like the JP-8 and the chorus is deeper.
The Juno-106 sounds more like the JX-8P but with more bass fundament and the chorus is not so deep.

The legendary JUPITER-8 synth is back as a very cute module , the JP-08. However lets listen to the iconic original Jupiter-8 in a very rare presentation , in the way we all synth nerds want a Youtube demo video. NO FX , NO EQ and NO COMPRESSION just the synths outputs straight in to high quality AD converters ! Here we go !
This is a live demo of the SYSTEM-100 plug-out, starting from scratch in manual mode. The virtual audio unit wasn’t used in this demo, so no virtual patching was made. The plug-out is loaded into the System-1 and used as it. Free patches for System-1 and for the SH-101 plug-out can be found onhttp://www.albaecstasy.ro/roland-syst…
