Jupiter 8 Out of Storage

Roland Jupiter 8

I finally got my Jupiter 8 and out of storage and all set for recording. What a great piece of gear. So easy to use and rich sounding. I’ve really missed it and I could twiddle with it for days – which is exactly why I avoid it like the plague while songwriting.

I generally try and avoid all my synths while writing songs as they’re too distracting (Just a bit more modulation. No, wait, it needs some chorusing. No, wait…). Once the songs are solid I roll out all the gear and the real fun begins!

Okay, I’m feelin’ a Tangerine Dream “Firestarter” synth sound for this project…
