“Well, its an … Analog box? This is a project that I put together a few years ago. It’s two Roland Synths (MKS-80 & MKS-30) hooked up to an analog mixer which has a real spring reverb. Each synth unit has a separate programmer. This project took some effort and fasteners. It’s all working. No major issues. There is one missing slider button on the MKS-30 Volume Slider. Also one knob on the PG-200 controller (lfo time) needs to be reseated from the inside. Used plastic washers and brass hardware to keep the ears in good shape. The case itself can be pressurized and used for air travel. All the manuals are there with the schematics. (I’m still looking for the MKS-30 manuals, so they may not be included). Connecting cords for each of the programmers are intact and in good condition. I took pictures of the serial numbers. This looks like the Rev 4 edition. Everything works, but this is older equipment. I’m selling this as is, but its been kept in good condition and smoke free while I’ve owned it. Oh, includes at least 2 memory cartridges (M64-C). And no, I don’t want to split it up… You’re lucky its altogether in one place :)” Link
“This is as clean a MKS80 with the programmer you will find. Works flawlessly. Comes with two loaded memory cartridges. Comes with Roland cable to connect the programmer to the module. If you are looking at this you know what it is. You won’t find a cleaner pair in better working condition. Will ship world wide.
This is the more sought after rev 4 version. ” Link
“I’m selling my MKS-80 Super Jupiter and MPG-80 Programmer since I haven’t been using it lately. This is the popular Rev.4 Super Jupiter.
This is a very fat and lush sounding analog synth. It’s a very versatile synth, it can do massive bass sounds, lush pads, bell tones, effect sounds, etc…
I’m also including the user manual and a M-64C Memory Card for storing extra programs.
The MKS-80 is in perfect working condition, with only minor scuffs from being rack mounted.” Link
Good for parts or repair if you have the knowledge or know someone who does.
MPG80 does not seem to control the MKS80 but this could be something to do with the problem the MKS80 is having also.” Link
” This listing is for the Super Jupiter (MKS-80) and the Programmer (MPG-80). The serial number indicates that this is a REV4 model. Power cable and programmer connection cable are included. Everything works great and sounds brilliant! There is some rack rash and scratching on both units and the programmer has a pen mark on the upper right side (see photos). Also, a few of the rack ear screws are missing (see side photos). The rack ears are strong with the screws that are in place, but it is worth noting.” Link
The MKS-80 synth and programmer are in good condition.
There are some cosmetic issues I want to point out: there are signs of normal use and wear on the housing (some fine scratches). Please see the photos for full details regarding the condition of the items.” Link
“I’m reluctantly selling my beloved Super Jupiter with the rare & indispensable MPG-80 programmer. They are both in fantastic condition, with minimal marks from racking & age. I’ve kept them in a meticulously clean smoke-free studio & gotten a lot of use out of them over the years. Everything is perfectly functional & hopefully if you’re looking at this auction you know how great these things can sound. As with all vintage units I’m selling them as-is due to their age.
There’s a lot of great info on the net about the MKS-80 & MPG-80 if you need to know more. Please note I’m relisting this item as the previous buyer could not commit to the sale.
The MKS-80 has a serial number 563xxx which makes it a Rev 5.
The unit runs on 120VAC & I have a step-down transformer for use with Australian 240VAC, which I will throw in free for Australian buyers. Also comes with the memory card, and the cable for the programmer.” Link
“Used Roland MPG-80 Programmer for the MKS-80. Cosmetics are average, some scratches, a ding on the main face, paint is worn around some of the controls; silkscreen is very good. Tested out with my MKS-80, works fine. Sliders are a little rough. Used in smoke free studio. Due to age, vintage gear sold as is. Includes unit and connecting cable only, nothing else pictured in photos.” Link
“For sale is a Roland MKS-80 Super Jupiter Vintage Analog Synthesizer AND the rare MPG-80 Super Jupiter Programmer interface for the MKS-80. I am also including the M64-C memory cartridge and owners manual. I am the original owner and the units have been used in my smoke-free studio for the entire time. The MKS-80 is a Rev 4 version, serial #460470. This Synth works great & sounds awesome! These are sold AS-IS, no returns. ” Link

“I’m selling my Roland MPG-80. It’s in excellent cosmetic and functional condition. The only thing is it’s missing one of the plastic slider caps. You can see it in the picture, top row, near the center. There is a possibility it’s lost in my apartment somewhere. Should it turn up, you have my solemn oath that I will get it to you (at no charge).
This auction includes the MPG-80 programmer, original manual, and control cable for connecting to an MKS-80.
I love this thing but it’s more synth than I can handle…I’m really a guitarist.” Link

“Roland MPG-80 Super Jupiter programmer for sale. This is in excellent working and cosmetic condition.

“You are bidding on Roland MKS-80 Super Jupiter Analog Synthesizer in excellent condition works and sound great. ” Link
The auction includes:
- MKS – 80 Super Jupiter, polyphonic synthesizer, 2 rack unit.
- MPG-80, Programmer / Controller
- Original Manual
- 3 cartridges to save more patches
- Cable to connect Programmer and MKS-80 Unit
- Power cable
In the 3 years that this unit has being in my studio, it has seeing very little use. I think mostly because I own way too many polyphonic synthesizers. I have used it with a plugin from Rekon Audio MKS-80 Editor software too.
Its a lot of fun, being able to recall patches directly from your sequencer makes things easier when composing/producing. The MPG adds that tactile feeling from classic Roland synths like its cousins the Jupiter 6 and 8. Being able to change a filter setting, select and OSC waveshape or an Envelope on the fly on a rack unit is priceless.” Link
“I’m selling my Roland Super Jupiter, this is a really fat 8 voice polysynth with the MPG80 controller to access all the parameters. This is the better sounding revision 4 model in MINT condition I’ve owned it for 6 years and before that it was racked up in a composer’s studio in London. Its 220V!” Link
“Roland MKS80 with MPG80 Programmer.
The MKS80 was just checked, tested and repaired by The Analog Lab in New York City. It had lost a voice and now works great!
This is the Rev 4, which is known as the best sounding unit.
Includes power cable and programmer cable.
This is a very clean unit and has lived in a rack since it was purchased new! ”

Tested in good working condition however considering it’s age some faders could use cleaning. There some marks to the tops of a few knobs but it is just cosmetic.
Includes the programmer cable but no rack ears.” Link
This includes both (i) the DIN cable to communications from the MPG80 to the MKS and (ii) the power cable for the MKS.
The MKS-80 is fully working and in near mint condition. All inputs, outputs, switches, knobs, keys, and parameters of the MKS-80 and MPG-80 have been tested and work as they should.
The item will be professionally packed and shipped. ” Link
Er funktioniert einwandfrei!
Wollte es eigentlich gegen andere Synths tauschen, nun ist er hier gelandet.” Link
” Absolute classic VCO poly synth from Roland. Sounds fantastic and extremely versatile. This is the Rev 4 version and comes with the MPG80 programmer and 2 memory cartridges. You can’t beat having a physical programmer, definitely feels more responsive and connected to the synth than a software programmer in my experience. I’ve found the synth can be easily programmed to produce excellent bass, pad, fx and synth sounds sounds and will be sad to part with it but, redundancy forces sale of my analogues ;-(. So, hoping it goes to a good home and someone who will appreciate this analogue beauty.” Link
