Europa is my biggest preset pack ever, featuring 150 new and unique sounds, expertly crafted for Arturia Jup-8 V4 and Analog Lab V. This collection taps into all the latest features of Arturia’s latest Jupiter-8 emulation, ‘version 4’, which boasts a newly refined sound engine brimming with analog warmth and extensive modulation capabilities. The Europa presets are designed to maximize Jup-8 V4’s enhanced sound design features, offering a diverse array of sounds ranging from ethereal shimmering pads and lo-fi keys to robust basses, cinematic strings, and versatile workhorse synth sounds. This diverse range of presets caters to various genres and production styles, making Europa an essential toolkit for contemporary music producers and sound designers.

Jupiter-8: A Synthesizer Milestone

Arturia’s Jup-8 V4 is a software emulation of the Roland Jupiter-8, a legendary analog synthesizer known for its rich, powerful sound and sonic versatility. The Jupiter-8 was introduced in 1981 and quickly became one of the most iconic polyphonic analog synthesizers in history. Its release marked a significant milestone in synthesizer technology, offering musicians an unprecedented level of analog power, modulation flexibility and unique features like keyboard split (letting you play two patches at a time) and a polyphonic unison mode. 

With its powerful sounds and intuitive interface, the Jupiter-8 found favour among many top artists and producers, contributing to some of the most iconic music of the era. Its influence extends well into the modern music scene, with its sounds still being sought after for their analog flavour and retro appeal. Arturia’s Jup-8 V4 software emulation continues this legacy, providing us with the same iconic sounds in a modern format without the 5-figure price tag.

Pushing the Boundaries of Synthesis

In putting the Europa presets together, my goal was to fully harness the capabilities of the Jupiter-8 sound engine along with the advanced features in Jup-8 V4, including its additional two LFOs, integrated onboard sequencer, and the Modulation Mixer. The result is a collection that not only includes top-tier classic synth sounds but also features innovative, modern presets enriched with dynamic, organic modulation. This blend of classic and contemporary, combined with the raw power and sophistication of the Jup-8 V4, makes Europa an indispensable preset pack for any producer seeking to elevate their musical creations.
