I`ve had a chance to try out these new toys. Not for too long though… Anyway I out together a tech-like, rap-like, chill something with no use of external FX, compression or EQ. Some standard limiting added. I had lots of fun with the gear ;)

Roland Jupiter-4

February 24, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

All sounds from the 1978 Roland Jupiter-4 analog synthesizer. One of the best sounding analog poly synths ever built.

The first Jupiter synth. It was among one of the first poly synthesizers (4 individual voices which could be synced together for one fat monophonic lead), it had a pitch wheel that could be assigned to the VCA, VCF, VCO or all together, there are 8 memory locations and a cool arpeggiator – the arpeggiator can be heard in the Duran Duran classic, “Rio”. It also has a very slow LFO for those ever-so-long filter sweeps. Pretty good for 1978!

total

Not so cool however, are the 10 preset sounds which sound nothing like the piano, brass or strings they claim to be. The placement of all the preset buttons below the keyboard can be inconvenient, especially while playing it. And as with most old analog synths, the Jupiter-4’s tuning can go out often. Still it is a nice analog synth for creating weird trippy analog sounds.
