Roland MKS-80 Super Jupiter SN 501505

via this auction

"Rare Roland MKS-80 Super Jupiter Rev. 4!!!
Serial Number 501505

16 Analog Oscillators 2 per Voice!!!

The Rev. 4 to me sounds more raw and aggressive then the typical Roland sound. (Kind of like an America synth) I’ve edited sounds that sound like two sledge hammers hitting. Your monitors will rumble! It's closer related to the Jupiter-6/8 in wildness. But unlike the Jupiter 6/8 the filter and VCA in the MKS-80 both respond to velocity (Dynamics) and aftertouch! The Rev. 5 sounds more like a massive Roland JX-8P.

This Super Jupiter is in excellent working condition and comes with a power cable and a M-64C Memory Card so you can store your own sounds. For easy editing I used CTRLR. It's a free software."
