Conjured Circuits JP6 Multimode VCF Module Brings Jupiter-6 Filter To MU Format

Conjured Circuits has introduced the JP6 Multimode VCF, a recreation of the multimode filter of the Roland Jupiter-6 from the 1980’s.

The JP6 Multimode VCF is an official MU format port of the System80 Jove Eurorack filter.  It is a 2U Moog Unit module, with an added 2-pole 12dB low pass mode that they say is reminiscent of the Jupiter-8.

The JP6 filter is based around a cascaded Operational Transconductance Amplifier (OTA), in this case using the LM13700 OTA in place of the obsolete Roland IR3109 quad OTA.

Features:

  • 4 modes: 24 dB low pass, 12 dB low pass, band pass and high pass
  • 2 audio inputs, logarithmic attenuated
  • 2 frequency CV inputs, one unipolar input and one attenuverted input
  • 1 resonance CV input, attenuated

Audio Demo:

Pricing and Availability

The Conjured Circuits JP6 Multimode VCF is available assembled via Noisebug or as a DIY kits via SynthCube.

  1. “What? A Jupiter 6 filter clone? Isn’t that unethical? Where are the Behringer haters?”

    Behringer apologists are obsessed with pretending that musicians are against legal cloning and building on the past.

    They never want to address all the sleazy and illegal stuff that Behringer does – like ripping off the look and feel of production gear, using lawsuits to stifle free speech, harassing journalists, spreading hate speech videos and suing Gearslutz members for their opinions.

    1. “Behringer apologists are obsessed with pretending that musicians are against legal cloning and building on the past.”

      Legal cloning? What exactly is Behringer doing that is illegal?

      “They never want to address all the sleazy and illegal stuff that Behringer does – like ripping off the look and feel of production gear…”

      Again, what exactly is the illegal stuff that Behringer does?

      Ripping off the look and feel of production gear? Behringer is the only one doing this? You act like this hasn’t been going on for decades with music gear. How many companies make a “Stratocaster” guitar or a “Les Paul” guitar? Ever hear of the company Warm Audio? Go to Sweetwater and look at Warm Audio products. And then there are the many software products that copy the look and feel of production gear.

      “…using lawsuits to stifle free speech, harassing journalists, spreading hate speech videos and suing Gearslutz members for their opinions.”

      How many people has Behringer actually sued? Name names. Also, you act like other music companies don’t sue people. Here is just one example of many (let alone the many lawsuits by non-music companies):

      I’m not excusing it, but Behringer isn’t the only company that gets offended and defensive when people accuse them in public of being immoral and unethical. Many companies, music related and otherwise, spend money on lawsuits to protect their reputation.

      The bottom line is: If you don’t like the Behringer company, then don’t buy their products. But please don’t use opinion only arguments to look down upon “Behringer apologists” who disagree with you.

      1. Your comments come across as Behringer astroturfing and whataboutism rather than a real defense of Behringer’s sleazy business practices.

        You pretend that Behringer’s harassment and infringement are not well documented facts, though it’s been discussed over and over in public forums and music sites. Here are just a few examples:

        That Time Behringer Sued Dave Smith Instruments & 20 Gearslutz Users For A Quarter Of A Million Dollars:

        tldr version: Judge decided Behringer was using lawsuits to stifle free speech.

        Behringer harasses journalists by trademarking his name and, over several months, attacking him with hate speech on their Facebook page and Youtube:

        Mackie, Roland, Aphex and others have sued Behringer for ripping off their products, as in down to copying circuit boards and the look of shipping products. In each of the cases, Behringer had to settle out of court because they were going to lose the cases. But they made the settlements confidential and now they pretend that they were vindicated.

        Behringer sued Dave Smith and cost Smith over $100,000 in legal fees, but the judge decided against Behringer and made them pay the court costs:

        Don’t pretend that stating the facts of what Behringer does is just ‘opinion’.

        It’s just your opinion that the facts don’t matter, and that you’re comfortable with your money going to support hate speech and harassment.

        1. “That Time Behringer Sued Dave Smith Instruments & 20 Gearslutz Users For A Quarter Of A Million Dollars”

          Did you even read the articles in the links you included? Here’s another:

          https://cdm.link/2018/06/behringer-have-sued-dave-smith-instruments-forum-posters-for-defamation/

          These lawsuits went nowhere. Regarding Dave Smith Instruments, as was mentioned in this article, “…the lawsuit never made it to court.” And yes, what the Dave Smith Instruments employee was writing about Behringer in a public forum could be interpreted as defamatory:

          https://djmag.com/content/behringer-tried-sue-dave-smith-instruments-defamation

          I am not condoning what Behringer did in trying to silence people. My point was that this isn’t unique to Behringer and happens all the time in the business world. Many companies spend big bucks to fight for their reputation.

          Again, you act like copying gear isn’t a widespread practice in the music industry. You didn’t comment on the numerous “Stratocasters” and “Les Paul” guitars. What about Warm Audio? What about the numerous software versions of music gear?

          When you go to the grocery store, do you always buy the name brand version of the product, or do you buy the store / generic version? Do you criticize companies that make a version of the Oreo that isn’t produced by Nabisco? Do you always buy the name brand version of an over the counter drug? Those who purchase generic versions of name brand foods and generic versions of over the counter drugs and complain about Behringer cloned gear are hypocrites.

          “It’s just your opinion that the facts don’t matter, and that you’re comfortable with your money going to support hate speech and harassment.”

          Hate speech? If anything is hate speech it is what the Dave Smith Instruments employee and Gearslutz users were writing about Behringer. I am totally comfortable with my money going to support the Behringer employees (and their families) that I see on Behringer YouTube clips and the many other employees behind the scenes who make their living via the sale of Behringer products.

          I have a Behringer Model D and a Behringer Neutron, and I like them both very much and use them frequently. I can’t afford a $5,000 Minimoog on eBay or Reverb.com, and thanks to Behringer, I have the Model D. The Neutron is another great synth. And I look forward to purchasing and using the Cat. At the end of the Behringer 30th anniversary clip on YouTube, Uli Behringer says that the company wants to help musicians, “fulfill their musical dreams:” One can question his sincerity when he says this (I don’t), but Behringer products are helping me fulfill my musical dreams (which in my case is writing/recording music in my home studio and putting it online).

  2. I started making SynthCube kits before Eurorack broke big. All the parts are usually provided and you can really save a lot of money. It’s also fun to have a synth that you built yourself.

    1. I 2nd that. I built 2700 PAIA out of TV parts and an erector set before I could afford to buy the kits. It was all fun – a ball of solder wire and crappy TV caps and resistors in a 3D maze for a LPF. Good fun!
