Jupiter 4, Roland @ 11 November 2018, “No Comments”

“Excellent condition and recently serviced!
It looks and sounds amazing.

It looks almost new with just a few minor scuffs on the side panels.
I’ve played all three Jupiters and find the Jupiter-4 to be the best and most unique sounding synth.. it’s a warm, analog beast!
I don’t think you’ll find a Roland Jupiter-4 in better condition than this one.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Good Condition..I have owned this for almost 20 years.. always kept covered and played only a few times a year..
Looking to consolidate and hope to find a new home for this keyboard as it does sound amazing… Someone who is into vintage synths & knows what they want..

All knobs, sliders, switches, lights work..just tested..
All buttons on front working..just tested..
Volume knob is a little scratchy..
Tunes perfect with slight turn to the left of the master tune knob.
Might need calibration in the future..
Cosmetic condition is good with the usual minor nicks and surface scratches.
Keys are worn but they are all even and work & trigger fine..just tested.
Wood sides are in fair condition with some dings..”

“Roland Jupiter 4 up for sale. This one is in fantastic condition with only minor cosmetic marks to the wooden end cheeks and the odd cosmetic scratch. Nothing really for the age of this legendary synth.

Everything works perfectly and sounds great. I’m only selling as I need something else for a project. I’ll probably regret it!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Classic Roland Jupiter 4 analogue synthesiser in perfect working order and good cosmetic condition.

The serial number is 105108, indicating a date of manufacture of September 1981.

A comprehensive review of the Jupiter 4, along with some videos can be found here: http://greatsynthesizers.com/en/test/roland-jupiter-4-the-golden-oldie/

Considering its age, this synth is in good condition. There are a few nicks and scuffs most notably to the side cheeks. One of the keys has a small burn and the paintwork is scuffed just below the LFO knob. All are photographed here.

This is a much loved and great sounding piece of kit used by 808 State, Vince Clarke, Depeche Mode,Thomas Dolby, Human League, Gary Numan, Tears for Fears, Stevie Wonder and Vangelis

The time has come to reluctantly let go of this and a few other pieces due to the demands of family life. I’ve been a semi-professional bass player for many years and can’t justify keeping a synth like this. But I’ll be sad to let it go.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This auction is for a Roland Jupiter 4 Synthesizer. I’m not excited to sell this one but it’s not being used and we’ve got several more broken JP-4’s sitting in the back room.
This particular unit is serial # 770449 and has all of the original RevC voice boards (Roland BA662 filters). Most folks regard the BA662 version filter to sound better than the later IR3109 version… personally they are both awesome with some differences at higher resonance settings.. In any case this one has the often preferred BA662’a ($1800 worth of them no less!).” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Here we have a Roland Jupiter 4 vintage analog synthesizer for sale. I aquired this synthesizer over 20 years ago and it is still in great cosmetic condition compared to a lot of others I have seen on the internet.

This synth hasn’t been used for a number of years now, but I have plugged it in and everything as far as I know seems to work. The synth would probably benefit from a service to make sure everything is up to scratch!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Jupiter 4, Roland @ 26 March 2017, Comments Off on Roland Jupiter 4

jp4 ” Cosmetically in great shape and electronically in future proofed condition. A complete professional overhaul was done this year at Waveformless which included a complete recap of every voice card, power supply, and programmer board, a tuning and calibration. Every key was cleaned and all sliders and knobs have been fully lubricated and throughly cleaned.

The FULL MIDI I/O kit was installed which includes both the expanded memory section as well as all the page 2 functions. The I/O MIDI kit comes in two options and some owners choose to install only one component, this Jupiter 4 has the complete full kit. This allows for total control over MIDI for all the sliders on the JP4. Not only that but a MIDI output is also installed, which means you can actually record slider movements and keyboard playing straight from the Jupiter 4 into your favorite sequencer. The I/O MIDI Kit for the JP4 is the most comprehensive MIDI solution. Not only that, but it uses a faster CPU so MIDI triggering is absolutely lightning fast. If you want to synchronize the arpeggiator to MIDI there are many options for dividing down the MIDI clock, but it will work just as the original did over the trigger input as well.”

jp4 “Roland Jupiter 4 in excellent condition. It was serviced right before I purchased it. It looks and sounds great. It will be hard to find one in better condition. The end caps look excellent. It is very clean, no issues, all sliders work smoothly as they should. These are very hard to find, especially in this condition, so if you have been wanting a Jupiter 4 then you had better grab this one before it’s gone. I am selling this synthesizer as is due to the fragile nature of vintage synthesizers.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

jp4 “Here for sale an incredible condition Roland Jupiter 4
It is known as the best sounding Jupiter out of all of them, and indeed it is .
Expect wall shaking basses and hypnotic mid & high range.

Don’t need so much introduction for how it sounds.

The cosmetic of the machine is really like brand new. I see no visible scratches.
All the faders and knobs looks very shiny and move super heavy smooth like it has never been used before
When you open inside the same story, it looks like mint , no dust at all.
One can say it is in museum condition.

Whats done to this J4 ;

– Professionally installed Kenton Midi Retrofit (costs 500+ €) . It looks like its a part of original synth. (see the photos)
(You can clock the arpeggiator with external clocks)

– Fully serviced, calibrated, cleaned

– Power supply recapped

I will ship worldwide with tracking number.

good luck ”

jp4 “This is a Jupiter 4 from ca.1978-79 in excellent condition. I am owning it for many years but hardly used it. It was cared for but is sitting on the stand looking good. It is time to part with it to raise funds for another instrument I am interested in. This Jupiter 4 is very clean and I have tested all keys, it still has a good battery and writes and stores the memory functions. All presets are working as well as the oscillator and LFO, Filters, Waveforms and ADSR are working perfectly . Pots, keys and switches were lubed and are not scratchy. I checked Unison/Poly including Ensemble and Hold mode. Over the years it was serviced and cleaned.The instrument is over 38 years of age and is sold as is. No warranty, no returns and refunds will be accepted. Service and operations manual on PDF are readily available online for free.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

This Jupiter 4 is in very good condition physically and is 100% functional. It was just fully calibrated and tuned by a professional synth technician in Vancouver (which is quite a big job). All oscillators, filters, VCA’s were calibrated to the factory standards.
The synth stays in tune well once warmed up and tracks great over all octaves.

There is some wear and tear on the side panels which can be seen in the pictures as well as some scratches on the synth in a few places. I’ve tried to show all blemishes in the pictures.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

This vintage Roland Jupiter 4 synthesizer is in decent condition for its age. It turns on and works, although I can’t get “musical” sounds out of all of the presets (although I can get some sort of sounds out of them) and options (this may well be because I don’t know how to operate it or set it up). Lots of the settings just seem to make noise, but again, that may be because I don’t know what I’m doing (or it may mean at it needs servicing or that parts of it don’t work right). The Voice and Force presets seem to work fine, and they sound pretty cool. Some of the buttons seem to stick, but they’ll pop out if you try. The switch for the LFO – Manual/Mod setting is broken; see photos. The broken switch is included.

The previous owner was kind of a mad scientist organ player who owned just about everything Roland made in the ’70s and ’80s. He modified this synthesizer with some sort of a slider control on he left side of the keyboard; see photos. I have absolutely no idea what it does, but the synth seems to work anyway. The owner’s manual, a photocopy of the service notes, and some emails regarding the synth are included. The hand-written notes on the owner’s manual are hard to read, but they appear to refer to new memory being installed in 3-89; see photos. I have no idea if any additional memory was actually installed and I don’t guarantee in any way that it was; however, the manual was included with the synth when I got it, and I do know that the handwriting on the manual is the same as handwriting on other things by the same previous owner.

Overall, this Jupiter 4 synthesizer is in pretty good condition for its age. It has some scratches, tape, stickers, and marks from where tape and stickers were placed and removed before. It may need servicing (and I think it probably does), and I do not guarantee that all aspects of it work. This is a vintage, used instrument, and it is sold “as-is.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

jp4 “No shipping to other countries! Kein Sofortkauf!

Hallo! Ich biete hier einen Roland Jupiter Synthi an – analog und aus der guten alten Zeit. Den Zustand kann man den Bildern entnehmen: es gibt am Holz einige Macken, außerdem auf der Rückseite kleinere Dings und Dongs, und auf dem Bedienfeld gibt es neben etwas Staub auch kleinere Kratzer. Ein Hebel für einen Umschalter fehlt. Für das Alter ist der Zustand aber noch gut.

Ich kann nicht alle Funktionen testen. Wenn man auf die Knöpfe unter den Tasten drückt, kommen ganz unterschiedliche Sounds aus dem Kopfhöreranschluss und dem Verstärkerausgang (nur bei den Tasten zur Computereinstellung ist nichts zu hören). Die Tasten scheinen alle zu funktionieren, ich habe sie aber nicht für jeden Sound alle durchgespielt. Welche Möglichkeiten durch die vielen Regler und Schalter auf der Oberseite möglich sind weiß ich nicht, ich kann auch nicht garantieren, dass alles so funktioniert wie es sein sollte. Eine Bedienungsanleitung habe ich nicht mehr. Aus diesem Grund biete ich den Roland vorsichtshalber als defekt (!!!!!) an – bestimmt braucht das Teil etwas Pflege und jemanden, der so etwas auch warten kann. Ich gehe aber davon aus, dass die Tonerzeugung in Ordnung ist, weil das Gerät sehr unterschiedliche Sounds von sich gibt. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

jp4 “PHYSICAL CONDITION – Very Good. There are some prominent dings in the wooden side panels, as well as some minor nicks and scuffs elsewhere. Two of the control sliders are missing their caps and the bottom panel is missing one rubber foot. Otherwise, the synth has been kept up nicely. The keys, buttons and controls are working well and solidly intact. Overall in nice shape!

WORKING CONDITION – Fair: The synthesizer powers up and all keys trigger sound properly. The Portamento, Bend/Mod Control, Arpeggiator, Ensemble, Tuning, Assign, and a few other basic controls are fine. However, there is a lot of noise present in the signal and there are quite a few things that are not functioning as they should – The Memory and Preset functions are not working properly. The LFO is working but sounds distorted and controls are not responding as it should. The VCO and its controls are only partially working, with some controls like the range and waveform selectors having no response. The VCA and noise generator are also having no response. Being sold “as is” for repair or parts. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

It sounds wonderful, warm and classic. Optical it’s in nice condition too for its age, but there is some minor wear and tear on it, scratches on the front panel, the wooden sides are been damaged at the corners and the music stand knobs are missing at the back panel (see photo’s). Overall it’s a beautiful instrument. It’s an original 220V version with European plug installed and the serial number is: 790705.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

One of the most underrated Roland synths with a really great sound. Huge thick analog, awesome filters, arpeggiator, built in ensemble, presets & snappy envelopes. This JP4 is fully functional & in excellent cosmetic condition. There’s only minor wear on the rear part of the end cheeks, otherwise it’s in very nice clean shape, especially considering its age. It’s 100% fully functional and was just back from servicing/checkup, including tuning and calibration. It sounds fantastic. The Io Midi is incredibly useful and quite rare to find. In my opinion the JP4 is one of the greatest sounding Roland synths, I would take it over a JP6 or JP8 anyday. Don’t miss out on this vintage analog classic!” Click here to visit listing on eBay
