Powerful New Features for Roland’s Flagship Synth



Since the launch of the JUPITER-80, many professional keyboard  players and producers have praised its expressive SuperNATURAL sounds  and live-performance capability. With the Version 2 software update, the  JUPITER-80 offers new features that enhance its already formidable  synthesis power, and provides more flexibility and creativity for  musicians designing their own sounds.

  • Adds three types of low-pass filters; combined with the previous type, a total of four filters are now available
  • Adds new MFX structures; in addition to the previous parallel  connection, a total of five structures (including serial connection) are  available
  • Adds a Registration Play screen for easier access to sounds during live performance
  • Better integration with SONAR software; a dedicated plug-in for your  computer lets you easily map the JUPITER-80 to control SONAR’s faders  and soft synths

Three Vintage Low-Pass Filters

The filter section is one the most important tool kits for editing  SuperNATURAL synth tones. Version 2 adds three types of vintage low-pass  filters to the lineup. With the addition of these filters, each with  unique cutoff and resonance behaviors, you can faithfully recreate  coveted synthesizer sounds of the past.

New MFX Structures

The previous MFX section allowed only parallel connection of the four  effects for one Live Set, but with Version 2 you can select MFX  structures that let you place up to four effects in series. By using  these five MFX structures, you can take full advantage of the  JUPITER-80’s powerful collection of effects to create intense  electro-synth sounds and intricate ambient synth textures.

New Registration Play Screen

The new Registration Play screen provides easier access to your  sounds during live performance. You can see all eight Registrations in a  bank at a glance, and select them directly via the touch screen.

Improved SONAR Integration

The Version 2 update offers smoother integration with SONAR software.  A dedicated plug-in for your computer lets you easily map the  JUPITER-80 to control SONAR’s faders and soft synths.
