Excerpt: USE To be honest, there's no need for a manual. It's rather easy to use. Sound editing is pretty traditional. You can start either with a modeled waveform (sine, saw, square, SH, and super saw) or with sampled waveforms from classic and renowned synths, or with a hyper realistic "super acoustic"...
Excerpt: USE a) It's really hefty! It's beautiful...it's a Roland! b) Manual? What manual? It's so intuitive and user-friendly that I haven't even bothered to open it...Once you've understood how the banks are organized (which takes you five minutes), you can start enjoying!
Summary: The Jupiter 80 has the power and quality that you would expect from a synth at this price. The build is solid, the keybed is very good and the sound is stunningly beautiful. The strength of the JP80 is the ability to create extremely complex sounds with it's tone blending and layering.
Excerpt: The roland Jupiter 80 is a very expensive digital synth, I do not own this, a local producer has one of these and I get the chance from time to time to go to his production lab and mess with his equipment and I have even wrote songs there.
Excerpt: Le ton est donné avec la longueur de la fiche technique du Jupiter 80. L'ensemble des caractéristiques de cette machine tient sur une page web ! A titre de comparaison celle d'une workstation comme le Kronos tient sur ... une dizaine de pages !!!
