Roland has announced the JUPITER-50 Synthesizer, the second release in its contemporary generation of JUPITER-series keyboards.

Inheriting the stunning sounds and Live Set architecture of the acclaimed JUPITER-80, four separate sound engines can be stacked together to create classic fat synth tones and massive voices. The lightweight, streamlined design also makes it an essential keyboard for players everywhere.

Inside, the JUPITER-50 is equipped with a sound engine that is the sonic equal of its big brother, containing all of the SuperNATURAL synthesizer and acoustic tones found in the JUPITER-80. Users can even import JUPITER-80 sound data into the JUPITER-50 or utilize powerful onboard multi-effects and reverb for studio-quality sound processing.
