"This Jupiter 8 is in great working condition and was just serviced and calibrated.

New Kenton midi kit freshly installed, pro job by our in-house tech. However, the previous owner attempted the midi mod and hacked out the rear panel in the process (hence the large metal plate and missing ROLAND logo). DCB port has also been removed.

Cosmetically the synth is in very good condition despite the rear panel. The keys are in great shape and are very white. All buttons are functioning fine and it sounds incredible as usual!

Includes original manual and flight case."

Kenton Midi Mod info further below.

"Kenton Midi Mod info:

For incoming MIDI:
Any MIDI channel can be selected
Notes (MIDI note numbers 36 – 96) – transpose possible
Program change (numbers 1 – 128) where 1-64 select whole/upper & 65-128 select lower when split
Pitchbend – (bends up and down with the same range as set for the bender wheel)
Mod Wheel
Filter cutoff frequency (of low pass filter)
Arpeggio clock can be synced to MIDI clock
Auto tune request
The following controls can also be controlled by MIDI:
Hold lower, hold upper, dual, split, whole, manual, and patch presets 1-8

By default:
pitchbend is controlled by pitchbend messages
mod wheel is controlled by Mod Wheel (CC#1) and also by Aftertouch messages
filter cutoff is controlled by CC#16
Volume is controlled by MIDI volume (CC#7)
Sustain is controlled by Sustain (CC#64)

however, any controller or aftertouch or velocity can be mapped to control other things so for example velocity could be mapped to control volume.

For outgoing MIDI:
Any MIDI channel can be selected
Notes (MIDI note numbers 36 – 96) – transpose possible
Program changes 1 to 61 can be sent using a button press followed by a key press
No other MIDI can be sent – the retrofit is primarily intended to allow the synth to be played from a MIDI master keyboard or sequencer."
