1 INTRODUCTION 1.1 ROLAND/JUPITER-8 STORY The history of Roland is intimately tied to the personal story of its founder, Mr Ikutaro Kakehashi. When he was just 16 years old, the young Mr Kakehashi noticed there was no watch or clock industry in post-war Japan. He therefore understood there was a thriving business 1 to develop repairing existing timepieces. Mr Kakehashi found a part-time job in a watch repair store, but he quickly felt frustrated with the pace at which things were progre

In 1954 Mr Kakehashi opened an electrical goods and repair shop by the name of “Kakehashi Musen”. - Later the name was to be changed to Ace Electrical Company. His initial goal was to produce an electronic instrument capable of generating simple monophonic melodies, and so he ended up building a Theremin. Looking for a new challenge, he later built a four-octave organ using parts from a reed organ, bits of telephones, and simple transistor oscillators. In 1959, he designed and built a Hawai

By the end of the 1970s, Roland established itself as a major manufacturer, and in 1981 Mr. Ikutaro Kakehashi opened four new companies in three months. Roland UK, Roland GmbH and Musitronic AG in Switzerland. He also established a new Japanese division called AMDEK (Analogue Music Digital Electronics Kits) Back to the early 80’s, the Prophet 5 and Oberheim OB series dominated the polyphonic synthesizer market. Having that in mind the Jupiter-8’s success, initiated in 1981, took every

Costello, Tears for Fears, Huey Lewis and the News, Journey, Moog Cookbook, Yes, Devo, Freddy Fresh, Simple Minds, Jan Hammer, and BT. In the early 80’s Roland and Sequential Circuits combined forces to create the MIDI protocol. The technology was derived from Roland’s earlier DCB bus Format. MIDI is still being used today with great success. In 1982, Roland launched the Jupiter-6, the first synthesizer including the MIDI protocol on board. This new synthesizer was introduced as an enhance

It was the introduction of COSM and the “V” products in 1995 that set the future direction for Roland. Mr. Kakehashi and his teams had recognized that digital signal processing and physical modeling were the future of the electronic audio industry. Roland applied these technologies to a broad range of products. From sound modules and dance- oriented groove boxes to their most expensive digital mixers and audio workstations, Roland remains at the forefront of synthesizers and electronic music

What’s more, the hardware analog oscillators were unstable. In fact, their waveform varies slightly from one period to another. If we add this to the fact that the starting point for each period (in Trigger mode) can vary with the temperature and other environmental conditions, we find another one of the characteristics that contributed to the typical sound of vintage synthesizers. TAE® reproduces the instability of oscillators, bringing a fatter and “bigger” sound. 1.2.3 Direct Filter C

3 AUTHORIZATION Now that your Jupiter-8V2 has been installed, you need to authorize the synthesizer. This doesn’t apply to owners of the Jupiter-8V previous version, who may use the software right away using their USB-eLicenser hardware dongle. Contrary to 1.x versions that used the USB-eLicenser protection scheme, the Jupiter-8V2 uses the “Soft-eLicenser” virtual dongle solution by default. Avoiding the use of a USB port, this system allows using the synthesizer on one machine, which
