The Perfect Add To My Performance Rig
I play in a classic rock cover band. For many years, I have been using 2 boards for my performance rig: a Nord Electro for organs and pianos and a midi controller driving a iPad for the rest. It did the job but I was missing live controls, rich powerful sound, and a great variety of sounds from acoustic to great analog synths I used to have years ago. The Jupiter 50 does it all! I am one month into owning this new board. I will admit there was an initial learning curve trying to understand registrations, live sets, uppers, etc. But it eventually clicked (the manual is not very good explaining IMHO). I have performed two gigs with the Jupiter so far. I just love its live layering capabilities. Took me about a day to set up the board to my set list. What I discovered is there are many patches I now play (pianos, organs) that are much better than the factory set ups. You just need to get into the edits and tweak hem to your liking. The 76 keys, quality of the keybed, weight and portability, ease of moving through the sounds (once they are set up) are all huge pluses. I am glad I am back to 2 pro boards.
