The Roland Jupiter-8 and OP-X PRO-II go mano a mano in this analog vs virtual analog comparison, via virtualoberheim.
Here’s what they have to say about the comparison:
Comparing some factory presets of the Roland Jupiter-8 to the cloned ones in the Jupiter-8 Collection bank for the SonicProjects OP-X PRO-II virtual analog VSTi synth.
The original Jupiter-8 clips were recorded by Paolo Di Nicolantonio from synthmania.com and were licensed for this comparison.
The cloned presets in OP-X PRO-II were modeled by ear after these clips and are available in the “Jupiter-8 Collection” bank which can be downloaded here.
The flexible engine of OP-X PRO-II allows to mimic the character and sounds of several different synths. These direct comparison examples show that it works quite well for the Jupiter-8.
