Vintage Patches for Oxium : Inspired By Jupiter 8 Soundbank
IB Jupiter 8 soundbank is inspired by the Roland Jupiter 8 factory library. Its aim is to recreate "as close as possible " on Xils-Lab Oxium synthesizer all the presets of this library.
New July 2013 : For people who dont already own Oxium : When purchasing I.B Jupiter, you will receive together with the soundbank a exclusive Coupon Code giving you a 10€ discount on Xils-Lab shop if you purchase Oxium
The base of this work was as follows :
I made the presets on Oxium trying to match the closest as possible the 60+ original JP8 audio clips that everyone can find on Synthmania.com.
As a consequence, I made 60+ A/B audio clips, where you can directly compare the Jupiter 8 and Oxium, as you can hear below.
I played - the best I could- the same music parts, so that the comparison could be the most possibly easy, and neutral.
All Oxium presets were tuned by ear, however, I observed some general guidelines found in the Synthmania site preset book
There are some structural differences between the JP8 and Oxium. Certain presets could not be recreated in a proper way.
Note : I would like to thank Paolo at Synthmania who posted all the original Jupiter 8 clips, demoed every preset with style and attitude. Remember "The name of the rose" movie ? There are books, but thanks to the internet, there are also guardians of the audio temples. The job he did is fantastic, and is preserving for us the memories of a time that is not so far away, the golden age of the analog monsters, the age of the JP8. This is culture too.
Audio Demos : 60+ A/B comparisons clips between a real Jupiter8, and the patches recreated with Oxium.

Note : Please note that this soundbank is identical to the one offered by Xils-lab during the Oxium Reloaded Group Buy. If you have purhcased Oxium before the 15/05/2013, you dont need to purchase IB Jupiter 8, as you should have had the opportunity to DL it for free on Xils site.
Note 2 : You need Oxium V1.5 or further versions to use the IB Jupiter 8 soundbank. IB Jupiter 8 will NOT load into previous 1.0 and 1.0.1 Oxium versions
