JP6 Europa - more than 61 notes via midi?

Postby sOnIc » Sun Mar 18, 2012 10:09 pm

Hi, I realised the other day that my non-europa Jupiter 6 only responds to 61 notes over MIDI - the synth lets you go beyond that when using the onboard arpeggiator - so using a software arpeggiator in Ableton for example will limit you to 61 notes; a massive limitation.

Does the Europa mod fix this?

Thanks...

AFAIAA, no, there is a hard limit of the scale of the keyboard for notes. IIRC the arpeggiator doesn't go higher than the last note of the keyboard.

Cheers 7hz .. the arp definitely takes the notes upto 3 octaves above the 5 keyboard octaves, listening to it now.. shame I cant access those from midi, just as well I'm planning to use it on its own to do live impro with .. still want the Europa mod though.

And my Jup has a dodgy voice now too; missing or very crackly 6th note... if anybody does repairs in the south west of England please let me know as its a heavy beast to post.
