In 1996 Roland released the JP-8000, their first virtual analogue modeling synthesiser.
The JP-8000 became very famous for one thing, the Super Saw. This unique sound helped
define the trance music genre and is still commonly used in electronic dance music
The JP-4c is a Reaktor patch designed to emulate the infamous Super Saw oscillator.
The JP-4c is built upon a combination of research conducted by myself and other
individuals, with the patch being able to effectively emulate the original Super Saw's
unique timbre. Detailed research and analysis of the Super Saw found that the oscillator
exhibits some interesting characteristics giving it a particular sound.
Super Saw Oscillator - Effective emulation of Roland's original layering of
seven sawtooth waveforms.
Second Oscillator - Four switchable waveform types (Triangle/Sine/Saw/Pulse).
Filter - Selectable Low Pass, Band Pass and High Pass with key follow.
Modulation - 2x LFO's, Filter Envelope and Pitch Envelope.
Effects - Tone Control, Distortion, Reverb, Chorus, Delay and Portamento.
32 Factory Presets - 12 Leads, 8 Pads, 5 Plucks, 4 Basses and 2 Effects.
This patch requires Native Instrument's Reaktor version 5.8 or later.
