The Jupiter-80 is largely based on Roland's acclaimed 'Supernatural' sampling technology, which samples every key from the instrument (instead of just a few zones) for super-realistic, dynamically smooth sounds.
It also features a virtual analogue modelled synth - which Roland calls a 'Supernatural Synth' - featuring several virtual analogue waves and the 'Supersaw' wave which debuted on the JP-8000 (and is a staple sound for Trance producers). Plus, like the Nord Stage 2, it also has sampled PCM waves, though you can't import your own currently.
Once you get to grips with its confusing sound structure and sparse interface there is very little to fault with the Jupiter-80. It’s a sonically versatile, impressive and supremely powerful synth.45 Stars
