As part of the new Boutique series, the Roland JP-08 Sound Module delvers all of the power of the legendary Roland Jupiter-8 synthesizer in a unit the same size as a book! This new, powerful unit not only contains all of the parameters of the original powerhouse but adds new waveforms and an expanded VCO range. The JP-08 now makes it possible to take incredible synth powered music production absolutely anywhere!
Smaller size, same power
The Roland Jupiter-8 was a huge synth that contained lots of controllers and then cutting-edge technology to create a sound that took the synth world by storm. The JP-08 retains all of the original sound and makes everything else much more compact, even finding room for some extras.
To make sure you get the best out of the sound engine, the top panel of the JP-08 gives you 36 parameters that you can control to shape and contort every aspect of the synth engine. With the emphasis very much towards ‘hands-on-control’, musicians, programmers and synth enthusiasts will all be able to begin making music with familiar comfort.
Shape your own sound
Authenticity is key with the JP-08 module however, in true Roland style, you get some nice extra’s that add even more music making options to your arsenal. Several new waveforms have been added including TRI and NOISE for the LFO and SIN for VCO-1, and both VCOs have a much expanded range to give you the best in sound design potential.
The JP-08 module contains a 4-note polyphonic engine allowing you to create some really cool pads and swells but one of the great features of this tiny unit is that they can be chained together! Each chained unit adds another 4 voices of polyphony. This is a great feature when controlling the modules from a large controller keyboard via the USB or MIDI ports. The master module can be used to control the slave units for real-time filter sweeps and LFO effects.
In the studio or on the road
The Roland JP-08 Module makes it just as possible to make music out and about as it does in the studio thanks to the inclusion of a mini 0.5W speaker and its ability to be powered from 4 x AA batteries.
In the studio, you can connect the JP-08 to any DAW via the USP port which functions as a high-quality 24bit, 44.1kHz audio interface! You can also back up your favourite patches and sequencer patterns too with the USB backup function.
The Roland Boutique JP-08 Synth Module is a compact, powerful synth that will have you making music in no time and for even more functionality, you can connect the optional K-25m, 25-key velocity sensitive keyboard too.
