Back on November 6, we announced that Roland would be releasing an incredible new free collection of synth sounds for the Jupiter-80 and Jupiter-50 that captured the true essence of seven vintage synthesizers. Now that collection is here, albeit under a new name: Jupiter Synth Legends, Volume I — and did we mention this collection is a free download?
Here’s what we had to say in our previous post (only the names have been changed…):
The Roland Jupiter-80 and Jupiter-50 are among the most powerful keyboard synths on the market — in a word, these instruments are awesome! And now you can make the Jupiters even more awesome (hmmm, awesomer?) with the free Jupiter Synth Legends, Volume I collection sound library. Featuring all-new Tones, Live Sets, and Arpeggio patterns, the Jupiter Synth Legends collection uses the Jupiters’ powerful SuperNATURAL sound engine to recreate the true essence of historical synths from Roland’s storied past — we’re talking a dream collection of legendary vintage sounds from synths including:
- Jupiter-8 (1981)
- TB-303 (1982)
- SH-101 (1982)
- Juno-60 (1982)
- Jupiter-6 (1983)
- Juno-106 (1984)
- D-50 (1987)
The 123 all-new single Tones in the Jupiter Synth Legends collection, Volume 1 represent the iconic factory presets from each of these synths, plus there are 512 new Live Sets that combine the vintage sounds together in fresh, contemporary ways using layers and multi-effects and nearly 300 new Arpeggio patterns.
With the Jupiter Synth Legends, Volume 1, your Jupiter-80 or Jupiter-50 covers the entire history of Roland’s synthesis past. For vintage synth lovers, equally exciting is that “Volume 1” you may notice in the Jupiter Synth Legends’s appellation…that’s right, there will be future volumes in the Jupiter Synth Legends collection spotlighting sounds from other classic analog synths using the three vintage filter types found in the Jupiter-80 and Jupiter-50.
