Description

Roland polyphonic Virtual Analogue rack synth in the tradition of the MKS70 & MKS80. The 8080 is the rack version of the JP-8000 keyboard but goes one better by adding distortion effects and a vocoder

The JP-8080 has 10-note polyphony and forty-odd knobs & sliders to aid real-time sound creation & performance

In excellent condition, almost unmarked. Supplied with rack ears and original manual. UK, Euro or US power cable supplied on request

“The Roland JP8080 is the best, and with a bit greater polyphony – which is not the main reason for preferring JP-8080 over JP-8000 – along with the Noise oscillator, Unison mode, Morphing, Distortion and Vocoder. In addition, JP-8080 is a real heavy duty steel synth, extremely high professional constructed. In my opinion it’s the most lavish and robust synth I ever have seen in my life. “

“I think this is the first and only time in the history of my life when I like the rack version better than the keyboard”

“There is nothing to say: SuperSaw. Original, unique and remarkable in every anthem!”

“Since I sold my jp8000 I do cry every night”

“I’d sell/trade my JP8000 for the 8080 rackmount version, mostly for the extra vocoder and cool distortion”

In very good condition with an unmarked from panel. The synth has a couple of case marks and there is rack rash & scuffs on the rack ears and a slight bend on one ear. Arpeggiator knob cap is non-original and the headphone pot is slightly wobbly. It doesn’t affect using the synth in way

Supplied with original rack ears. UK, Euro or US power cable supplied on request
