Jupiter goes 'polite glitch'

Postby administrator » Sat Mar 03, 2007 9:10 am

I came up with patch two years ago and still haven't done anything with it. This is just a raw demo of what it does (I'm doing no tweaking at all, just playing the keyboard). Its what we call 'polite glitch' .. weird, but not offensive. ;-)

Outstanding! That has to be a Jupiter 8 yes? Is it the 8A? I have a Jupiter 4 and many many more analog synths (Prophet 5, Roland Junos, VP-330 vocoder, SH-101, JX8p, tb-303 etc etc). So far the Jupiter 8 still eludes me. Listening to this patch makes me want one even more...

Its a Jupiter-6 with the Europa upgrade. I've owned it since 1992 (paid $425 from my friend who was the original owner). Its a single patch (not layered).

Wow! That's amazing. Never thought that was possible on a Jupiter 6. Is that sort of sound achievable from a standard Jupiter 6? Is the Eurpoa upgrade worthwhile you think?
I also recently posted a query regarding the Jupiter 6 and a guy called Larry Heard. I was trying to verify if it was a Jupiter 6 playing the main bass riff (a couple of audio samples listed below). He owned a Jupiter 6 at some time in his career.



I've always loved the tone on the bass on these tracks. Think I've narrowed it down to a Jupiter 6 but I can't find one to check. It's pretty much just a square wave with a detuned chorus sound.

I also have an opportunity to buy a Jupiter 6 from interstate but without testing I'm not 100% sure if i should. They're big bucks these days....
