Roland JP-8000 Emulation
Roland JP-8000 Emulation by DJ Sunborn
You already know this since years and there are already few emulations of it in the user library, but since this is one of my top favorite synths i wanted to make a big, unique and "glorious" version of it, with full quality graphics and some one-of-a-kind presets! This is NOT an exact emulation of the synth, but rather something beyond, which however is based on the JP-8000 principles.
* 2 separated sections, Instrument or Sequencer
* 5-Octave interactive Keyboard with voice & pitch spread, velocity, aftertouch
* Poly, Mono, Legato modes
* Amp, Filter & Pitch Envelopes
* Main Oscillator (Quad-Supersaw, Triangle, Noise, Sine, Square, Saw modes)
* Secondary Oscillator (Saw, Sine, Square, Triangle modes)
* 2 LFO's
* Filter (Moog 4-Pole LP + 2-Pole LP, BP, HP)
* Ribbon Controller witch controls the Filter Cutoff and Resonance
* Arpeggiator (not the typical style -which i found it very limited- but rather a sequenced arp)
* Sequencer (for this to work, you need to click the Reaktor's play button)
* FX (Stereo EQ, Delay and Chorus)
* On most parts you can use Sequencer, OSC1, LFO or Filter Envelope as modulators.
* I avoided to recreate the exact sounds of the synth or to make some generic presets (basses, pads etc.) since there are already millions of them available! Instead i preferred to created some unique and interesting arpeggios, loops and weird sounds.
* Sequencer based on Notenspieler by Didier Leboz 2017, i did few changes but mainly it is his work.
* Quad-Supersaw OSC based on several other supersaw's i found here in the user library, however this is different, more rich and more fat!
* FX and part of the keyboard code are taken and reworked from some legacy modules found on my old library. Unfortunately they contain no info about the original author. Please let me know if you recognize your work so i can credit you too!
* Special thanks to Salamander Anagram and David Earl! A big part of my work was learned from their tutorials.
* All graphics are made by me, except of the base background of the synth, which i took from a JP-8000 hardware editor and re-worked it on Photoshop. There i created all the other parts on it.
Fair Use: Feel free to use it as you like, to improve it by yourself or to use parts of it where ever you like, however as long as you use it as is, please do not remove author info. It took me almost 5 months to make it (...and yes, I'm still a newbie!). Please notify me if you find any bugs (or some better way to do things), thank you.
