important; 2 models of Jupiter 4 .... the first serial number to 800,800 FITRE owns a FET 662 BA VERY powerful and dirty ... the following models are themselves a model IR 3109, one of Jupiter 8 with a resonant and a more timid nature more "wise ".... not the same sound and I think it affects a lot how we can saturate the vca (the hallmark of jup4 ...)

UTILIZATION

very simple, no mystery.
the chorus makes the stereo sound (two exits ..) this chorus is amazing
People often before they faint chorus of junos ... I think that's jup 4 is less pronounced but can be much better (a bit "on the dimension D)
As usual in roland super stable, no crash, very solid, good keyboard ...
very cool

good to go, there is insufficient memory .... and not being able to edit the sounds saved is a bit broken foot ...

SOUNDS

Osc 1 and a sub but the only sound is very big ..
big sound analog, really
thick, grainy, full ... no plug or VA does not come close to this kind of sound (not even in my dreams Friends ..)
the sound is heavier than the JP8, .. but hey, we do fewer things well, so do not compare.
think New Order, Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, etc. ..
So big sound newwave but deadly to sound current and hip hop electro
the version with the first filter is very fat with this color ... I believe, the original ... roland has not done more "roland" for
...
I think it's a poly with its thickest and colorful, really. any category.

OVERALL OPINION

when I see that the climb is sometimes less than a juno 60 .. then I'm missing something ...
at the same time this synth is a bit rare and misunderstood, people do swear by the JP8 ...
I recommend c sound very modern (4 lanes only ...) and a unison mode is unbelievable
groundwater to throw, bass, super arp, and effects .... thanks to its supersonic lfo .. (fm..) brass and strings without comment ..
but especially this "grain".
and yet I really like the JP8 ... but this one possesses a less wet "spacial" but more earthy.
(JP6 being a whole other story.)
price or it is found .. (when even less) can not be wrong or lose as ..
