Roland | JP-8080
|The JP-8080 is a synthesizer sound module which uses digital technology to simulate an analog synthesizer. It lets you enjoy creating tonal changes in real time, and a wide range of performance possibilities.
A further enhancement of the JP- 8000 sound source.
The JP-8080 features the same analog modeling sound source as the acclaimed JP-8000 synthesizer. In addition, it provides a “Voice Modulator function,” a “External Input Synthesis function” and a “Unison function” for even broader richer sonic possibilities. The maximum polyphony has been increased to ten notes, and Distortion has been added to the multi effects type (Chorus).
Voice Modulator function
By processing an instrumental sound through a filter which imitates the characteristics of a human voice (or an audio signal), this function produces the effect of a “talking” instrument (Formant Filter). Multiple parameters can also be controlled by human voice (audio) (Vocal Morph Control).
External input synthesis function
A sound that is input from an external source can be processed by the filter and amplifier in the same was as the internal waveforms.
Multiple parameters can be modified simultaneously by a MIDI message. This allows a variety of realtime expressions ranging from brief accentual changes to total transformations in which one sound changes into another.
The panel is laid out in sections, similarly to analog synthesizers of the past. Panel sliders and knobs can be used to modify the sound in realtime. In addition, the BANK1–8 buttons and UMBER1–8
buttons can be used to select patches and performances quickly and easily.
A rich array of sounds
The JP-8080 contains 256 performances (64 x 3 preset, 64 x 1 user) and 512 patches (128 x 3 preset, 128 x 1 user). In addition to sounds original to the JP-8080, there are also 64 preset performances and 128 preset patches from the JP-8000.
Supplementing the basic waveforms (square, sawtooth, triangle), the newly added DSP (Digital Signal Processor) oscillator contains four types of complex waveform which could not be produced
by analog synthesizers. Noise has also been added to Oscillator 2.
Four types of arpeggio can be produced: UP, DOWN, UP&DOWN, and RANDOM. By switching the beat pattern, you can change the accents and note length, letting you play arpeggios with a variety of grooves.
RPS (Realtime Phrase Sequencer)
Patterns (musical phrases) that you create can be registered to each key (note number), allowing you to playback a pattern simply by pressing one key.
Motion Control function
Movements (motions) of nearly all the sliders and knobs on the panel can be recorded for up to 99 measures, in four separate memories. By playing back a Motion during your song, you can reproduce complex tonal changes.
The BANK1–8 buttons and NUMBER1–8 buttons can be used as a one-octave keyboard. This lets you audition most of the functionality of the JP-8080 even when a MIDI keyboard is not connected.

|Legend:||Obvious||Y: Yes, N: No, N/A: Not Applicable|
|VCO||Voltage Controlled Oscillator||DCO||Digital Controlled Oscillator|
|LFO||Low Frequency Oscillator||Sub||Sub Oscillator|
|VCF||Voltage Controlled Filter||VCA||Voltage Controlled Amplifier|
|Velocity||As with a piano, the harder you hit a key, the louder the sound, unlike most organs which always produce the same loudness no matter how hard you hit a key.||Aftertouch||Pressing a key after you activated it. Channel Aftertouch, no matter which key, it will send a Channel message. Poly Aftertouch, sends the pressure per key instead of the whole channel.|
|Values for OSC, LFO, Filter, Envelope are per voice unless stated otherwise.|
