Description
The JP-8080 is a synthesizer sound module which uses digital technology to simulate an analog synthesizer. It lets you enjoy creating tonal changes in real time, and a wide range of performance possibilities.

A further enhancement of the JP-
8000 sound source

The JP-8080 features the same analog modeling
sound source as the acclaimed JP-8000 synthesizer.
In addition, it provides a “Voice
Modulator function,” a “External Input Synthesis function”,
and a “Unison function” for even broader richer
sonic possibilities. The maximum polyphony has been
increased to ten notes, and Distortion has been added to
the multi effects type (Chorus).

Voice Modulator function

By processing an instrumental sound through a
filter which imitates the characteristics of a
human voice (or an audio signal), this function
produces the effect of a “talking” instrument (Formant
Filter). Multiple parameters can also be controlled by
human voice (audio) (Vocal Morph Control).

External input synthesis function

A sound that is input from an external source
can be processed by the filter and amplifier in
the same was as the internal waveforms.

Morphing function

Multiple parameters can be modified simultaneously by a
MIDI message. This allows a variety of realtime expressions
ranging from brief accentual changes to total transformations
in which one sound changes into another.

Easy operation

The panel is laid out in sections, similarly to
analog synthesizers of the past. Panel sliders
and knobs can be used to modify the sound in
realtime. In addition, the BANK1–8 buttons and NUMBER1–8
buttons can be used to select patches and performances
quickly and easily.

A rich array of sounds

The JP-8080 contains 256 performances (64 x 3
preset, 64 x 1 user) and 512 patches (128 x 3 preset,
128 x 1 user). In addition to sounds original
to the JP-8080, there are also 64 preset performances and 128
preset patches from the JP-8000.

DSP oscillator

Supplementing the basic waveforms (square,
sawtooth, triangle), the newly added DSP
(Digital Signal Processor) oscillator contains
four types of complex waveform which could not be produced
by analog synthesizers. Noise has also been added
to Oscillator 2.

Arpeggiator function

Four types of arpeggio can be produced: UP, DOWN,
UP&DOWN, and RANDOM. By switching the beat pattern,
you can change the accents and note length, letting you play
arpeggios with a variety of grooves.

RPS (Realtime Phrase Sequencer)
function)

Patterns (musical phrases) that you create can be registered
to each key (note number), allowing you to playback a pattern
simply by pressing one key.

Motion Control function

Movements (motions) of nearly all the sliders
and knobs on the panel can be recorded for up
to 99 measures, in four separate memories. By
playing back a Motion during your song, you can reproduce
complex tonal changes.

Preview function

The BANK1–8 buttons and NUMBER1–8 buttons
can be used as a one-octave keyboard. This
lets you audition most of the functionality of the
JP-8080 even when a MIDI keyboard is not connected.
