About This Listing

VIRTUAL JP-8000 PROGRAMMER FOR ROLAND JP-8000 / JP-8080*


This software is a Virtual JP-8000 synthesizer programmer for use with the ROLAND JP-8000 or JP-8080* synthesizer.   It emulates the JP-8000 front panel in a software environment within the APPLE LOGIC audio/sequencer program (formerly Emagic Logic).     To use this software you MUST have a valid copy of LOGIC on your computer (see below) as well as a MIDI interface which connects your computer via MIDI cable to your hardware synthesizer.

This software CANNOT be used as a stand alone application under any circumstances.   It will NOT run in Ableton, Reason, VST, AU or any other host - it is not a plug-in but two importable layers of the Logic environment.

Upon purchase, you will ultimately receive a ZIP archive of the editor you purchased for Logic.     UNZIP this archive and you will have a LOGIC song document you can now open in the Logic program (Mac v8-9 and vX are supplied - please request special version if needed).     Once open, you will see the editor on your screen and you can then discover the pleasures of a Virtual JP-8000 programmer for your Roland synthesizer!

* EXTRA PARAMETERS OF JP-8080 WHICH ARE NOT PRESENT IN JP-8000 ARE NOT AVAILABLE IN THIS PROGRAMMER.


FULLY LOGIC X COMPATIBLE!



OVERVIEW:


This editor is physically laid out like the JP-8000 front panel.   If you're familiar with programming the JP from the front panel then you should feel right at home here.     I've added a few minor changes for the better such as adding RESETS, and some text feedback.

All front panel functions of the JP are available.   You can also program BOTH patches from two discrete and separate editor screens, one for the LOWER and another for the UPPER patch.     Both editors are live at all times and can be swapped on screen with DISPLAY buttons, or set up simultaneously on two monitors or one large display.

The JP has an odd MIDI implementation and a few quirks but I have set up this editor to allow full control via a remote keyboard / computer of all front panel performance parameters such as the arpeggiator, keyboard and panel functions, etc.  Every users needs and set-up will be potentially different but if you use this programmer as designed it will require MIDI channels 1 and 2 and also channel 16 for Performance select.    

Factory Patch and Performance settings are possible and offered in a pop-up menu as well as an on-screen remote keyboard and MIDI monitor window.     In some cases, the MIDI out of the JP must be unplugged to prevent MIDI feedback via the very strange Roland design of echoing the MIDI in to the MIDI out on this unit when the Remote channel is set as it needs to be for this to work in total (but it may also be disabled if you choose and you will then lose control of the ARPEGGIATOR in doing so).

All real time moves are recordable by the Logic sequencer for repeatable real time changes on playback - or you can automate using HYPERDRAW.     You may also remotely control these SYSEX faders and buttons via a hardware control surface if you take the time to tailor the controls to suit your individual hardware.     This is not difficult to do but does require some basic LOGIC ENVIRONMENT expertise - but only needs to be done once and then saved for future sessions.

The editor resides in two layers of the LOGIC environment hierarchy - and is importable to your personal autoload song (notes on how to do so are included).

Detailed documents are included with your purchase and cover all aspects of usage - both remedial and advanced.



SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS:


This editor is brand new but is still compatible with many different versions of Logic starting with Emagic MAC Version 4.x.     It is compatible with ALL versions of Logic through vX.     It is also compatible with Logic Express v7 - 9.     If you have a version 8 Logic you must use v 8.01 or higher which fixes a SYSEX bug that renders v8.0 inoperable.

This editor is also compatible with the v4 - v5 PC versions of Logic (please specify upon purchase).     In all v5's - it is compatible down to Logic SILVER.     NOT compatible with Micro-Logic or any of the other earlier neutered Emagic bundled versions.

This editor is designed to fit on two screens with a screen resolution of 1024 X 768 each or larger but will also work on smaller screens or one screen if that is your choice.



TERMS and CONDITIONS:


Free Delivery is included with purchase.     Delivery is by EMAIL ATTACHMENT ONLY - and will be delivered ASAP after payment has cleared.

I only accept PAYPAL.   Because this is a software only item, there are no returns allowed.   Please contact me at or via the Reverb.com messaging system if you have any questions before the purchase.

I also offer a customizing service for your software to help integrate it more deeply into your personal set-up should you require advanced help.   Please contact me here for more info.

Kind Regards, Virtual-PG.
