Arturia Announces The Jupiter-8V Is Now Shipping [ Musikmesse 2007 ]

Grenoble, FRANCE - Musik Messe, Frankfurt, GERMANY - March, 28 2007 — The Jupiter-8V is a perfect blend of classic and modernity: it is the software recreation of Roland’s famous Jupiter-8 coupled with a new generation of features. The result? A wide sound palette, unique and contemporary.

Among those new features are the Galaxy, the step sequencer and the new possibilities with the effects” architecture.

The Galaxy allows the user to chose from different LFO types and intertwine them together into a single unique modulation source, giving a new evolving element to the sound of the Jupiter-8. The Jupiter’s step sequencer is also an assignable modulation source, which allows for easily generated patterns to be used to control the many interesting parameters of the sound. Besides this, each voice has now its own suite of creative effects, which can be inserted into the main synthesizer signal path in each voice. Key parameters from each effect can be modulated by chosen sources, adding a new dimension to the subtractive synthesis sound of the original Jupiter-8. It is possible to activate some effects within the synthesis line: Chorus/Flanger, Distortion, Param Eq, Phaser, Ring modulator. The user can also add some effects on the output of the synthesizer: Chorus/Flanger, Delay and Dual Phaser.

Adam Beyer states: “If you thought the Moog was amazing the Jupiter-8V will blow your mind. It is a very well executed software synth that I will definitely use a lot. Another monster from Arturia, I love it.”

The Jupiter-8V comes with an enhanced version of TAE® - Arturia’s award winning proprietary technology for analog emulation- optimizing the computer’s processor usage. This means the possibility to play more complex sounds while keeping a good level of polyphony.
