Roland Jupiter-80: Review

The “supernatural” engine on this Roland Jupiter-80 provides really killer expressive playing, with some amazing sounds (pros anyways like Roland for their sounds). The interface is laid out well and its easy to access the various controls (fast patch changes, arpeggio control, etc). If you like to create your own unique sounds, you’ll enjoy the deep editing and sound design features (made easier by the iPad app).
