Syntronik Instruments - J-8

One of the most coveted analog synths of all times

One of the most loved polysynths of all time, the Syntronik J-8 recreates the Roland Jupiter-8 along with sounds from the Jupiter-6 and Jupiter-4. Manufactured from 1981-1985, the Jupiter-8 was Roland’s top-of-line polysynth intended to compete with the American giants like the Sequential Circuits Prophet-5 and Oberheim OB-series.

It’s 2-oscillator per voice design uses discrete circuitry for a noticeably fat and warm sound, and the oscillators go into the classic Roland IR3109 IC filter chips to provide the 4-pole low pass filter along with a non-sweepable high pass filter. Like the Oberheim OB-series and Sequential Circuits Prophet-5, the Jupiter has a Unison mode where all voices are stacked for a thicker result. A basic arpeggiator is also provided, easy to use and effective for classic repeating patterns. The Jupiters are loved for their efficient and intuitive front panel interface in addition to their distinctive analog sound.

 

 

 

 

The Jupiter-8 has been used by Tangerine Dream, Duran Duran, Jean Michel Jarre, Roxy Music, Depeche Mode, Rush, Thomas Dolby, Howard Jones, The Cars, Prince, Jan Hammer, Elvis Costello, Tears for Fears, Huey Lewis and the News, Journey, Toto, Yes, George Duke, Simple Minds.
