The Roland Jupiter-8 – ‘The Most Beautiful Synth Ever’

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!
