Live Sets, which are made by overlaying up to four SuperNATURAL tones, can be mapped to the upper and lower registrations in JUPITER-80, and the upper registration in JUPITER-50. These tones can then be selected instantly by pressing any of the color-coded buttons.
Registration Play screen
The Registration Play screen lets you quickly select your tones during live performances. This screen gives you a view of eight registrations (one bank) at a glance, and lets you access your desired sound directly through intuitive actions on the touch panel.
USB memory port
The built-in USB memory-based audio player/recorder lets you play and control backing tracks directly onboard. Additionally, the JUPITER-80 and -50 are capable of importing and exporting tone data between each other via USB.
Computer integration with SONAR
These models now support a special "Control Surface Plug-in" that features ACT (Active Controller Technology). This lets you control SONAR, as well as its plug-in effects and synths directly, from JUPITER.
Part Balance sliders
Both JUPITERs are equipped with Part Balance sliders that let you quickly set volume levels for each part (four parts on JUPITER-80, three on the JUPITER-50). The JUPITER-80's sliders, which have companion LED meter displays, let you accurately control your tones even under dark stage lighting conditions.
Diverse range of live controllers
Deliver dynamic live performances with the expressive front-panel controllers, including the pitch-bend/modulation lever, assignable buttons (S1 and S2), and invisible D-Beam.
Optimally positioned Registration buttons let you instantly switch between different combinations of the four Parts — including Upper and Lower Live Set stacks of SuperNATURAL sounds.
Exceptionally expressive keyboard
The 76-key semi-weighted keyboard provides first-class playability, giving you full control over the subtle nuances of the JUPITER's amazing tones. The JUPITER-80 is also equipped with an aftertouch-sensitive keyboard.
Extensive foot-control features
Multiple foot pedal functions (CTRL 1, CTRL 2, and HOLD) give you additional control over a variety of expressive performance parameters in real time.
Manual button and Registrations
The Manual button is very useful for easily and quickly selecting tones, as well as combining different tones. You can save settings for individual parts to Registrations, which you can instantly retrieve during live performances.
Cutoff and Resonance knobs
Dedicated knobs are provided for filter cutoff and resonance. Use resonance to emphasize frequencies near the cutoff frequency, giving your sounds edge and emphasis. Explore the many creative possibilities these hands-on controls provide.
Control synth tones on your iPad®
You can control SuperNATURAL synth-tone parameters, including the new vintage-inspired filters, from the comfort of your large iPad display.
Five types of multi-effect structures
You can freely change the MFX (multi-effect) structure of Live Sets on the JUPITER-80 Version 2 as well as the JUPITER-50. With five types of structures onboard, these synths provide extremely powerful and flexible sound-creation capabilities.
JUPITER-80 Version 2 configuration
The JUPITER-80's sound engine consists of four parts: solo, upper, lower, and percussion. You can create "Live Sets" by overlaying up to four SuperNATURAL tones, and then registering them to upper or lower parts. And by layering two Live Sets, you can easily create fat, densely stacked tones. You can save combinations of tones and other part settings as "Registrations" for instant retrieval.
The JUPITER-50's sound engine consists of three parts: solo, upper, and percussion/lower. You can select Live Sets that are comprised of up to four SuperNATURAL upper-part tones. You can save combinations of tones and other part settings as "Registrations" for instant retrieval.
