PX Add-On 6: JP-4 (Jupiter-4)
Making its debut in the late 70’s, the Jupiter 4 (JP-4) was the first true polyphonic synth produced by Roland®. Despite its smaller form, single oscillator per voice, and maximum of four voice polyphony, the JP-4 still found success in a time when competition between synth developers was at its fiercest. The synth was quickly adopted by electro-pop artists and, in time, by a range of other genres, making its rich low-end analog sound synonymous with the era.
The introduction of digital control of analog processes, dubbed “Compuphonic,” made it possible for the JP-4 to retain its characteristically raw sound while offering era-defining features, such as pitch stability and preset recall. It was the combination of these features that quickly led to the Jupiter line of synths earning a place in history, used and revered by many artists of the time, including Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, Gary Numan, The Human League, and Simple Minds.
The distinct character and true essence of the JP-4 has been captured beautifully in the 25 instruments and 16 custom designed preset programs (each with A/B Layers) for you to enjoy with all the advanced capabilities of the Prophet X & XL. The Prophet X/XL gives you easy and immediate access to instruments and program presets, so you can freely combine, stack, and manipulate any of the included sounds with the factory content of the Prophet to truly make them your own.
We hope you enjoy this truly vintage experience on your Prophet X & XL!
