The Jupiter-6 is an incredible analog synth. All of the Jupiters have a sound that was unlike any other synthesizer and the Jupiter-6 is no exception. This sound is due in part to classic analog Roland technology in its filters, modulation capabilities and a thick cluster of 12 analog oscillators at 2 per voice. Easy and intuitive programming via front panel sliders, knobs and buttons for all your tweaking needs.

The Jupiter-6 is a scaled down version of the Jupiter-8 in terms of programming and polyphony. However the Jupiter-6 has some major improvements of its own such as newly added MIDI control and better tuning stability! While the Jupiter-6 does have MIDI, the implementation is very rudimentary and hard to control. The Jupiter-6 was one of the very first (along with the Sequential Prophet 600) synths to use the then new MIDI protocol, and the implementation on the Jupiter 6 is far from complete.

The Jupiter-6 is excellent for ambient drones, pads, blips, buzzes and leads. The Jupiter-6 is known for being a very reliable, programmable, polyphonic, analog monster of a synthesizer! It is used by Orbital, Moby, Überzone, Devo, BT, The Prodigy, Vangelis, The Chemical Brothers, The Crysta l Method, ZZ Top, Duran Duran, Moog Cookbook, and Blur.
