Kebu - Roland JUPITER-Xm demo (live at Abbey Road Studios)


"In August 2019 I was invited to perform at Roland's launch event at Abbey Road Studios in London, with the then top-secret JUPITER-Xm. So I was borrowed a pre-production unit and was planning to use it as part of a keyboard rig setup. Having tested it for a few days, I realized that I could do a whole tune using only one the JUPITER-Xm. So I composed a new tune (still unnamed) that I performed live at Abbey Road Studio 2 on the launch event.

The tune uses two scenes, with the main part of the tune being based around a factory preset by Gattobus that I modified. All the sounds are generated in realtime by the synth's I-Arpeggiator based on my playing. There are no backing tracks or pre-made sequences. I use an iPad running MIDI Designer for controlling some parameters that were not accessible from the front panel of the synth in the beta version of the firmware. The iPad was connected using the built-in Bluetooth of the JUPITER-Xm.

Many thanks to Roland for this great opportunity and for providing the video!"
