“Roland OP-8 CV Interface, very good condition. Works perfectly. Some minor cosmetic wear but no dents. Also please note this has a China/Australia style plug and runs on 220V. I will include a plug adapter to fit American outlets (see photo) but you will need a step down transformer ” Link
“Up for sale here is a vintage OP-8 sequencer for the Jupiter 8 or Juno 60. The unit has a bit of wear but is otherwise in great working condition. Tested and working. These were built for 220V so if you are planning on using this unit in the US you can easily get around this by getting 120 to 220V wall adapter for around $10 at your local electronics store. This is extremely rare! Happy bidding.” Link
The unit is 117volts.
**In countries that use 230 ~ 240volts**
You may need the voltage converter to use it.” Link
“This auction is for a ROLAND OP-8 in great condition and working condition.” Link
It comes with original boxes for the MTR100 and OP8, but no cables to connect the MC4 to the MTR100 or the OP8 to a Juno. I had to borrow them to test it.” Link
” Up for sale is a (1) Roland OP-8 CV Interface. It’s in nice optical condition (see photo’s) and is working fine! It’s a 220V version and the serial number is: 260430.” Link
“Roland OP8 in great condition. It is actually new old stock and I opened the original box to take the photos. These were sold as part of the MC-4b sequencer and do a fine job or translating DCB outputs of Juno 60 and Jupiter 8 in CV gate. I purchased two of these as a NOS boxed pair but no longer have my Juno or MC-4b and are therefore selling this last unit. The OP-8 can send 4 streams of CV output as well as VCA and VCF messages.” Link
“Rare Roland OP-8 analog synth interface is up for auction.
Designed to control Roland polyphonic synths that were equipped with a DCB (Dig. Control Bus) interface via the Roland MC4 micro composer.
They are connected with a DCB cable.( not supplied)
The OP8 and MC4 were then patched together using patchcords via each of their patchbays.
The transpose control was able to transpose the synth up or down by one octave.
Use a mono analog synth /sequencer such as an MC-202 to drive your Jupiter or Juno as I did through the OP-8 and you will find it also adds a different colour to the mix.
Unlimited possibilities especially today with the Midi to CV like Kenton where you can use each channel to play different melodies to drive your synth.
In good working order and cosmetically fine.” Link

“I purchased this unit new in the 1980s. It was never used and still has it’s tag. I have no way to test it out, so it’s being sold as is. As you can see from the photos, it is in impeccable physical condition – it looks absolutely brand new, just as it did when purchased and stored.” Link
This item is new old stock only opened to take these photos. I bought this as a set of two unopened boxed units. It is is mint condition. The unit runs on 240V and has a euro type plug. It will work just fine with a standard adapter.” Link
Fully tested and working on all channels, comes with a 14 pin DCB cable for the Juno 60 and Jupiter 8′s with that interface.
This unit was designed to accompany the MC-4 sequencer, but will accept a 1 volt per octave signal from any synth of that standard.
The CV signals are converted to DCB and sent to the Juno/Jupiter. (It will not act as a DCB to CV converter)
This unit has been tested with the following:
Roland MC-202 (single CV channel)
Kenton Pro 2000 (multiple channel CV input for chords)
Expert Sleepers ‘Silent Way’ (multiple CV channels)
Roland Juno 60″ Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Extremely rare digital/analog sequencer , especially in this condition, legendary because of its extremely tight timing and groove….MC 4b was serviced by Basskozept studio – a leading Italian service center for obscure synths & peripherals. All push buttons, which are usually not working properly, were replaced by new ones, so they will work flawlessly for years. He also upgraded the power supply and changed the electrolytic caps in the unit. This is the version with expanded memory – whopping 48Kbs. More then enough for any song. Included in the package is even rarer CV to MIDI interface OP-8M which was also serviced recently (all capacitors replaced, upgraded power supply, cleaned and calibrated…), so you can drive your MIDI synths with it. I guess that you can’t find a combo like that in that condition easily if at all.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

I’ve lowered the asking Price from $450 to $299 !!!
I had it for years and it has been years since I’ve used it as I sold my last Jupiter8 years ago.
However, When i did use it last it was working great.
As you see in my photos I add a custom made DCB cable with it to hook it up with your synth.
I’ve used it with both Jupiter-8 and Juno-60.
I’ve used my Mono Analog synth/Seq such as MC-202 to drive the Jupiter-8 thrugh the OP-8 and it added a different color to the mix
The Jupiter-8 in Unison mode was mixed with the MC-202 sound and I’ve also played on a different channel my old Roland SH-101 and drove the Jupiter-8 live.
There are unlimited possibilites especially today with the Midi to CV like Kenton where you can use each channel to play different melody to drive the Jupiter or Juno.
I never had the owner manual for it but than again I never needed it as it has a simple layout and simple to use.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
