"Roland Jupiter 6 with Tauntek's upgrade which takes the synth to another level.

It is fully overhauled, all the sliders knobs have been changed with new ones (we will give the old ones to the buyer), new battery, power supply rebuild and fully calibrated.

This runs with 230V. You may need a step-up voltage transformer (not included) to use it in your country.

Here some of Tauntek's futures for the JP6:
1) MIDI Sysex patch and patch preset save and restore - saves or restores entire tone RAM (all 48 patches and 31 patch presets) in one operation (tape save/load works as before)

2) MIDI CC parameter changes are now supported. Separate control of upper and lower voices in split mode for most parameters. (No CC's are transmitted)

Maximum rate for CC reception is two per 19 mSec period, which is approximately 105 CC's per second. If CC's are sent faster than this, some will be dropped.

3) Non-volatile storage of MIDI channel and user settings

4) User settings for the following:

a) Mod wheel CC destination can be any one of the following:

VCO mod by LFO1 amount

VCF cutoff mod by LFO1 amount

VCA mod by LFO1 amount

LFO1 rate

XMOD manual amount

Pulse width

VCF cutoff

VCF resonance

b) Arp can be clocked by MIDI instead of internal clock, with five divider settings

Can be configured to require Start/Stop, or just free-run

c) Factory patches and patch presets can be read from the EPROM instead of user patches in RAM.

(User patches are not changed)

d) "All notes off" MIDI messages sent by original code every time the last key was released can be disabled.

5) Arpeggiator "Down then up" mode has been changed to a random arpeggiator mode.

6) VCO waveform buttons now toggle, making it easier to enable multiple ones. They can all be turned off.

7) VCO sync can now be set to "both ways" although this doesn't seem particularly useful"
