Arturia Jupiter-8 V2 Software Synth
- Words: Patric Fallon
Looking to get the classic Roland synth sound, but short on money and studio space? The soft-synth masters over at Arturia have just the thing. Jupiter-8 V2 (MSRP: $249) is exactly what its title implies: a virtual incarnation of one the most celebrated early synths, Roland's Jupiter-8. This bit of software offers the same soundbank of the original synthesizer, along with some exclusive extra features and Arturia's True Analog Emulation technology thrown in for that extra warmth, but with the ease and flexibility of a computer plug-in. Whether you're seasoned synth veteran or new to the keyboard game, the Jupiter-8 V2 is sure to fit nicely into your ever-growing arsenal of virtual noise-making modules.
