Roland MKS-80 Super Jupiter with Roland MPG-80 Programmer

“This MKS-80 is one of the sought-after ‘Rev 4’ series (serial numbers up to and including 511799 – this unit is serial number 481121). The Rev 4 series are worth considerably more than other versions. The general consensus is that Rev 4 series MKS-80s produce a warmer, richer and fatter sound. Technically-speaking, this is because it has the CEM oscillators (3340) and VCAs (3360), and the older Roland filter chip (IR3109), which is found in the Jupiter 8 and Juno 60.

Sonically, this is in perfect condition. There are a few cosmetic scuffs here and there that are visible in the photos, nothing unusual for a synth of this age. It’s been well-cared for in a non smoking, and dust free studio rarely used.

An additional 128 patches and tones can be stored on included MC-64 RAM cartridge

The sale includes the MPG-80 programmer, the cable to connect the programmer to the MKS-80, and the 2-prong power cable. 120V.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

Roland MKS-80 with Roland MPG-80 Programmer

“After many years of amazing service, I have decided to sell my Roland MKS-80 Synthesizer with my MPG-80 controller. The synthesizer was recently serviced in Brooklyn, NY in order to fix a few voices that were louder than others and the synth was also re-calibrated and controller was cleaned once over. I use this most of my studio sessions and will continue to use it up until the moment it is sold. It has been the cornerstone of my studio for years but I need some extra cash to bump down my credit cards. It also comes with two cartridges for storing your own presets and changes.

Serial number: 491390

Cosmetically there are a few dings and some rack rash. The upper right rack corner on the synth is bent.”

“Up for grabs this Roland MKS-80 Super Jupiter is a rack version of Roland Jupiter-8 and Roland Jupiter-6 and an 8-voice polyphonic analog synthesizer that was manufactured by Roland between 1984 and 1987. It is the only of MKS series of synthesizers to have fully analog voltage-controlled oscillators. It has been tested via midi and it works well. Please see pictures of exact item you are bidding on. It does have some cosmetic scratches from previous use, but nothing extreme, it was taken care of for what it is. It will only come with a powercord and card seen in unit.

Roland MKS-80 Super Jupiter

“I’ve owned this unit for almost 20 years, but haven’t used it much. I own the entire Roland MKS line, and it pains me to sell but I need to free up money for a piece of gear I need for Mixing. This is been the jewel of my collection for quite some time.

I have brought the unit to Allen @ Synthspa here in Tennessee and he did a full restoration which includes:

– Power supply board rebuilt
– output section resoldered and deoxidized
– new removable battery and chassis
– full calibration
– front panel rebuilt ; all pots and sliders
– great internal sounds!

He also replaced several of the audio capacitors with high quality components, and a few of the output transistors. The unit sounds cleaner than it’s ever sounded.

It is a 30 year old unit, so it has some bumps and bruises.

This is a VERY great sounding synth and one of the best vintage rack mount modules in existence. Also, this is not the latest rev5 version, so it has the preferred filters. Because it is a tone module, it responds to velocity unlike the Jupiter 6 and 8. Includes memory card.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

Roland MKS-80

“Tested recently before listing, there is the usual very small amount of noise heard on the volume slider only when being adjusted –
to give full disclosure – and something that can be expected from gear this age, but nothing at all that would hinder it’s use as it’s an
extremely warm and powerful synth. The display is fully functional however the backlight has dimmed out. This is the Rev 5 version
with the custom Roland VCO’s, designed to produce a highly desirable tighter bass sound that’s preferred in the studio. I don’t think
a synthesizer of this magnitude has been produced since, and being what I consider to be the best piece of gear I’ve owned – I’ve
taken a lot of pride in it’s ownership. Exclusively housed and used in a power conditioned and climate controlled environment. It’s
sound can be heard used by many famous artists. No dead voices or any voice problems that I’ve noticed, this is no doubt a rare gem.”
