Roland MKS-80 “Super Jupiter” Analogue Synthesizer with MPG-80 Programmer

Not really a Roland Jupiter 8 in a box, since there’s two rev. (4 & 5) with different filters (IR3109 / IR3R05) and no arpeggiator. But the MKS-80 is a great little analog 8 voices polyphonic machine with 2 VCOs per voice, memories, LP/HP filters with modulation. And the MPG-80 programmer makes it a serious realtime intuitive machine.

Welcome to Synthwatchers

Welcome to this blog dedicated to vintage and analog synth and other musical instruments for enthusiasts!

I’m a big fan of this great gear and since I’m always in search of new toys to test, I naturally come to ads and auctions to have a chance to put my hands on. But I know there on the web a lot of sites to watch for, so it makes the work difficult and time consuming. So I will try to make it for you, cos I love searching new gear, not necessary to buy it, but just for the pleasure to view some great pictures…

Have a good trip to synth’s planet.
