Manx has released the SJ-2 VSTi for Windows, a new version of their Super-Jay, released in 2011. A spokesperson had this to say,

"Of all the different kinds of vintage hardware synthesizers, our favourite has to be the wave of programmable polysynths which appeared during the eighties, such as the Jupiter 8 and the MKS-80 rack-mount. It wasn't just the breakthroughs of polyphony & patch recall that made these instruments popular - they also have a distinctive sound which was quite magical. We're very proud to present the SJ-2 as our own tribute to these awesome, IC based beasts! It's no accident that the SJ-2 sounds the way it does - it features several layers of audio processing 'algorithms' designed to reproduce subtle audio nuances that you'll find in analog synthesisers.  This 'no stone left unturned' approach is, of course, computationally expensive and depending on patch settings, your CPU may take a hammering.  Rest assured that we have tried to minimize CPU use as much as possible, spending many hours on optimisation."
