Roland Jupiter-80 76-Key Synthesizer Keyboard Review

The Roland Jupiter-80 is a live-performance powerhouse synth with user-friendly operation, features a color touchscreen, SuperNATURAL technology and much more.

If you are looking for a monster synth with some killer sounds (from pianos to synths), this is the one to consider.

PROS: Killer sounds, Easy to Use Interface,
CONS: Heavy, semi-weighted keybed, No Speakers, No 88-Keys option

The sounds are great out of the box, but you can easily tweak them to your liking. The board is sturdy & built like a tank, perfect for gigging.

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).
