Roland Boutique Series JP-08 Sound Module
The Sound and Control of a Jupiter-8 in the Size of a Book 

 

Roland has reconfigured 3 of their most legendary synths into ultra-compact, highly portable, sonically accurate versions of their famous predecessors. Built-in speakers and battery power let you play them anywhere. These limited-edition Roland Boutique Series are flying off our shelves.

 

JP-08 Sound Module

The iconic Jupiter-8 might be Roland’s all-time favorite synthesizer. The 8-voice, analog monster was a game-changer, with tons of of controls on the front panel and dedicated controls for most parameters. With 16 oscillators firing, it was could create everything from soaring, ethereal pads to the punchiest unison lead sounds. 

 

Now, the new, limited-edition JP-08—part of the Roland Boutique series—offers you the same hands-on control and the classic Jupiter sound. With 36 knobs and sliders from the original Jupiter-8 front panel, the 4-voice JP-08 is highly programmable and perfect for sonic explorers. 

 

The JP-08 faithfully reproduces the original Jupiter-8 sounds and adds a few new twists, with extra LFOs and expanded VCO range. 

 

MIDI in/out lets you control the JP-08 from your main keyboard/controller, or you can slide the JP-08 module into the optional K-25m keyboard unit for a self-contained, go-anywhere synth experience, using the built-in speaker and battery power. 

 

In a Nutshell: 

  • Ultra-compact recreation of the iconic Jupiter-8 synthesizer — less than 12” across
  • Retains the feel, sound, character and user interface of the original
  • 36 of the original synth parameters controllable from the front panel
  • Adds several additions not found on the original Jupiter-8, including extra waveforms, expanded VCO range
  • Includes 16-step sequencer
  • Chain mode allows two JP-08 to function as one 8-voice module
  • Highly portable for mobile music making 
  • High-quality construction with metal front panel
  • Dual ribbon controllers for pitch bend, modulation, and sound preview
  • Battery-operated (4xAA) or USB powered
  • 24 bit / 44.1 kHz stereo IN/OUT USB audio interface  
  • Built-in 0.5W mini-speaker for instant enjoyment 
  • Compatible with optional K-25m keyboard unit, adjustable to 3 positions for access to controls
