Here’s what’s new in the Jupiter-80 Version 2:
At Musimesse 2012, Roland announced the Jupiter-50 synthesizer, the second release in its contemporary Jupiter-series keyboards.
The Roland Jupiter-50 inherits the sounds and Live Set architecture of the Jupiter-80, but packs them into a relatively lightweight keyboard.
Inside, the Jupiter-50 is equipped with a sound engine that is the sonic equal of its predecessor. The Jupiter-50 offers all of the SuperNATURAL synthesizer and acoustic tones found in the Jupiter-80. Four separate sound engines can be stacked together to create classic synth tones and massive voices. Users can also import Jupiter-80 sound data into the Jupiter-50.
With the Jupiter-50, though, Roland brings this synth engine to a portable instrument designed for live performance. It offers a 76-note weighted keyboard, with a color-coded front panel that?s designed to be intuitive to navigate.

A USB Song Player/Recorder lets you play backing tracks or record performances to USB flash media. The Jupiter-50 can also act as a USB audio/MIDI interface, making it easy to integrate the synth with popular computer music software.
