The JP-6 has to be one of the best analogs ever made . Just fractionaly less powerful than the JP-8 it has midi and a killer overdrivin acid synth sound that to me puts it ahead of the jp-8 . Brilliant roland filters and more synth options than you could ever need . Plus its black with purple buttons , so you know its cool . Get one and upgrade the midi for a synth that simply blows away almost every 90's digital synth you have ever heard . A supreme classic .
Sonic Says :
Gil Sicuro :
One LFO is provided for pulse-width mod, vibrato, VCF, VCA, and other exclusively for vibrato (mod lever). It has a multi-mode VCF with LPF, HPF or BPF options, and resonance up to self-oscillation; two ADSR envelope generators with key follow adjust. The keyboard is splittable, and it can be memorized in a "Patch Preset" memory (today Roland calls it a Performance) along with key mode (poly 1/2, unison poly/solo, solo) or arpeggiator settings, and portamento or glissando (yes, glissando) settings.
The bender has separate on/off switch for each VCO, and the modulation is achieved with a big white button near the bender. BTW: altough in every picture I already saw in the Net, the JP-6 has a metellic dark grey tone. I love its rugged jeep-like construction.
Comments About the Sounds:
The jupiter 6 is simply brilliant at weird heavily modulated ,though sometimes uncontrolable, noises and beep streams . Unbelievable synth leads with its 2 osc's and a VCA that you can over drive . Great pulse width pads.
