Roland JP-8000

   0 reviews  -  1486 views

    The JP-8000 is a synthesizer which provides not only analog simulations, but also a wide range of functions
    that utilize the cutting-edge of digital technology to allow real-time sound modifications and playing
    techniques that have never been possible until now.

    Easy operation

    The panel is laid out in sections similar to a conventional analog synthesizer, allowing an intuitive understanding
    of the parameters and operation. Since the front panel contains controllers for all sound-related
    parameters, you can press buttons and move sliders or knobs to make the sound change in real-time.

    Superb performance functions

    When playing the JP-8000, you can select one Performance from the 64 User Performances that contain
    settings you yourself create or from the 64 Preset Performances (which cannot be modified). Tltis gives
    you a total of 128 Performances to choose from. On the JP-8000, the Patch numbers stored in a Performance do not refer to Patches — they allow you to
    actually store all the Patch settings in the Performance itself. This means that when saving the Performance, it is not necessary to save the Patch settings separately. This also means that even if you
    rewrite the contents of a Patch that is saved in a certain Performance, other Performances that use that
    Patch will not be affected.

    DSP oscillator

    In addition to conventional waveforms (square, sawtooth, triangle), the new DSP (Digital Signal
    Processor) oscillator contains four types of complex waveforms that were not possible with analog technology.
    By controlling individual parameters for each waveform, you can create even more complex
    changes in the sound. Square wave, sawtooth wave, and triangle wave can also be controlled using their own parameters to create a variety of sovmds.


    Four types of arpeggiation are provided: UP, DOWN, UP&IX>WN, and RANDOM. By changing the Beat
    Pattern, you can modify the accent and note duration etc., allowing you to play arpeggios in a variety of

    RPS function for playing back your ov^n patterns

    RPS is a function that lets you store playback patterns that you create. Tlie recorded patterns are assigiied
    to individual keys of the keyboard, and can be played back simply by pressing a key.

    Motion Control for storing slider/knob movements

    For most of the front panel sliders and knobs, four types of motion (movement) up to 8 measures long can be recorded. By playing hack these motions while you perform, you can create a variety of real-time tonal

    Ribbon Controller for dramatic tonal changes

    By sliding your finger to left and right along the surface of the Ribbon Controller you can simultaneously
    control two or more specified parameters. From brief touches of accent to smooth changes in tone, this
    gives you immense possibilities for real-time control.

    Three types of Key Mode

    Three key modes are provided: Single, Split, and Dual. With a simple operation you can play different sounds in the left and right areas of the keyboard, or simultaneously play two different .sounds from each
    key. Key Mode settings are stored as part of the Performance.
