Roland Jupiter-80 Synthesizer

Roland has announced that their new Jupiter-80 synthesizer is now shipping.

According to the company, the Roland Jupiter-80 “represents an unprecedented leap forward in the pursuit of the most authentically expressive electronic musical instrument, just as the legendary Jupiter-8 did when it was launched 30 years ago.”

The Roland Jupiter-80 has a suggested retail price of US $3,999, but is available for about $3,500.

Roland’s new Jupiter 80 synth has been met with a great deal of resistance from synth fans over the use of the ‘Jupiter’ name.

While the new ’80 may be a monster synth on its own, the Jupiter 8 holds a special place, in the minds of synthesists, as one of the great polyphonic analog synthesizers.

Here TheSynthFreq offers her take on the Roland Jupiter 8 – a classic 8 voice polyphonic analog synth from 1981. She calls it “The most beautiful synth ever.”

Note: Head-spinning Bourne-o-vision camera work on this one!
