Cherry Audio has introduced a new virtual synthesizer instrument that emulates and expands on the renowned Jupiter-6 from Roland.

The Mercury-6 captures all that is exceptional in this treasured polyphonic classic, boosts its extraordinary feature set for today’s DAW production and workflow, and celebrates the ground-breaking innovation from the era that changed music forever.

The software synthesizer features a massive dual-layer voicing architecture with 16 polyphonic voices per layer, a multi-mode filter, accurate reproduction of the original’s advanced VCO-2 to VCO-1 FM cross-modulation, portamento and glissando modes, an exacting replication of Jupiter-6’s unique arpeggiator, powerful solo and polyphonic unison modes for fat stacked sounds, and much more. Over 500 presets are included to get you started.

Mercury-6 is a meticulous recreation of the Jupiter-6 analog polyphonic synthesizer, initially released in 1983. Sandwiched between the earlier Jupiter-4 and Jupiter-8 models in name only, the sophisticated Jupiter-6 has sometimes been considered a sleeper release.

These days, it has persevered to become one of Roland’s most notable and coveted classic synthesizers due to its distinctive dark and complex character. If you’ve long yearned to explore the Jupiter-6, you’ll love Mercury-6!

Mercury-6 for Windows and Mac (VST/VST3, AU and AAX) is on sale at an introductory price of $49 USD until April 1st, 2023 (regular $69 USD).

The offer is available at Plugin Boutique and from the Cherry Audio store.
