Arturia announces Jupiter-8V

Arturia has announced the Jupiter-8V, the software recreation of Roland's famous Jupiter-8 which was in production from 1981 to 1984. The Jupiter-8 was a synth that not only inspired a generation of musicians ranging from Prince to Howard Jones, from Depeche Mode to Moby, it was also a unique machine that offered a sharp and crystalline sound while being uniquely phat.

Jupiter-8VWith the Jupiter-8V Arturia brings this magic back. Based on the latest version of TAE - Arturia's proprietary technology for analog emulation - the Jupiter-8V offers a new generation of features: The integration of effects within the synthesis line allows for drastic modifications of the original sound; with Galaxy, a graphical tool made to program two LFOs at the same time, you get a unique and innovative source of modulation; and with the modulation sequencer you can create new evolving sounds extremely easily.

The Jupiter-8V includes more than 400 presets made by a selection of top musicians. Fully compatible with the main protocols and systems in the industry, it can be used as stand-alone software or as a virtual instrument.
