Roland JP-08 LFOs, EGs and Modulations.

Published on Dec 21, 2015 Robert Shipe

"Second demo of my JP-08. Sequenced by the KORG SQ-1 with Ableton Live. Diving deeper into the JP-08's envelopes, LFOs and modulation routes/options. I use the second VCO as a dedicated sub-oscillator. I run through the LFO shapes and rate as well as the LFO and Envelope mods on the VCOs, VCA and Filter. There is also Key Follow adjustments and some filtering.

There are so many positive points most importantly being the sound. There are two main flaws for me. One, is there is no aftertouch or velocity sensitivity. Two, the filters are not the greatest. Everything else pretty much flows together on the fly. The filter does step on both -12/-24 dB modes. If you kind of dial it in it's fine but great filter-sweeps are not this things strongpoint. Luckily it does have a definite sound to it I like. Great for Pads and Atmospheric stuff. Surprisingly versatile."
