TAL Software released TAL-J-8 – emulation of vintage Roland Jupiter-8
The virtual synthesizer focuses on recreating the sound of the original instrument, not additional features, the developer notes.
TAL Software, a popular developer of vintage synthesizer emulations, has released a new instrument – the TAL-J-8 synthesizer. The instrument emulates the sound of the classic Roland Jupiter-8.
As with other developments, Patrick Kunz of TAL Software has faithfully reproduced the original instrument. Aside from MPE support, Koontz notes, the new TAL-J-8 does not have rich additional features compared to Arturia Jup-8 and Roland Zenology Pro. The main focus during development was given to faithfully recreating the characteristic sound of the original synthesizer.
In addition to emulating the oscillators and other Roland Jupiter-8 sections, the new instrument comes with Unison mode for oscillators and a sound calibration section. The latter allows you to adjust the pitch, resonance and amount of distortion of the generated audio signal.
The list of must-have tools for synthwave lovers now has one more plugin.
• Authentic emulation of the 80’s hardware synthesizer.
• Use the calibration section for extreme resonance and filter overdrive.
• VCO based UNISON with stereo spread option and a full stereo signal path.

• More than 200 factory presets by solidtrax, emptyvessel and others.
