Superb product
Dust DJ, 01.02.2021
All classic Roland synths in one. ZENCORE expantions, great integration with DAW, seamless multitrack recording for audio & midi. Great vocoder.
Pros.
Small footprint.
Cons.
Roland Zenology pro is expensive, but you can edit sounds in menus in synth itself.
Conclusion
As a user with background in MC Sequencers, Juno,TR 707,808,909, S 770, E-series and D-series synths, Jupiter-XM is like it's prescesors with modern approach.

Powerhouse Retro Synth
sonicsnares, 08.01.2020
Großartige Sounds! Super geeignet als Lead-Synth für Electronic, House & Bigroom Produktionen.

Die Bedienerfreundlichkeit am Gerät ist nach einer kurzen Eingewöhnungsphase super, die wichtigsten Parameter sind jederzeit griffbereit.

Großes Manko für mich die Einbindung in DAWs. Es fängt schon mal mit der Treiber-Installation an, die extrem mühsam ist und am Ende doch nicht funktioniert - das Gerät wird als MIDI Interface am Mac nicht erkannt. Für mich ein Rätsel, wie schwer es sein kann, einen simplen MIDI-Treiber so zu programmieren, dass er auch auf jedem Betriebssystem einwandfrei läuft. Nutze das Teil einstweilen mit einem Externen MIDI-Device.

Weiters die Fernsteuerung über MIDI-CC: Jede "Scene", also jeder Patch, ist unterschiedlich programmiert, dh man muss ständig nachprogrammieren, um Basic Controls wie Cutoff oder Release von Ableton aus steuern zu können.

Es gibt in der dürftigen Bedienungsanleitung kaum Tips, Hinweise etc. wie man das Gerät in ein digitales Studio einbindet. Das ist schon nervig, wenn man dann 2 Tage lang Trial&Error spielt....

Der Klang verzeiht jedoch die mühsame Programmierung, und wenn man das eigenwillige Menü einmal verstanden hat, geht es recht schnell. Ein offizielles Tutorial oder ein Plug-Out-VST wäre in der Preisklasse aber mehr als wünschenswert.

Waan jezelf in de jaren 80. De Jupiter is terug!
JKraus, 06.11.2019
Heb 'm nu drie dagen in huis en kan er maar niet van afblijven. Deze synth smeekt om bespeeld te worden. Wat een geluid! De ingebouwde speakers zijn ook van goede kwaliteit. Beter dan ik verwacht had. De batterijen gaan wel snel leeg. Ook zou je veel in het menu moeten duiken om bij bepaalde features te komen maar dat is logisch aangezien de Xm eigenlijk een module versie is van de X, maar dan met mini keys als extraatje. ;) De mini keys voelen echter wel van hoge kwaliteit en spelen gewoon goed. De nieuwe I-Arpeggio geeft veel inspiratie en er is een ruime keus aan soorten ritmes en klanken die bij jouw speelstijl passen. Luister niet naar de analoog puristen die al kokhalzen bij het horen van het woord ''digitaal''. Luister zelf met je eigen oren, dan weet je dat de Jupiter-Xm in één woord prachtig klinkt.

Gimped preset machine
Eken, 04.11.2020
The Good:
Sounds good
Hardware feels premium

The Bad:
If you only want to layer presets and don't care about adjusting anything it is a great little synth, but beware that as soon as you want to make adjustments to the sound you will be in menu dive confusion hell. I thought I could handle it, and put in the effort, but editing on this synth is just a complete and utter mess.

Don't expect to use this as a groovebox-style sofa synth. i-arp will work against you.

Speakers sound boxy.

Filter cutoff is extremely steppy on Zen-Core sounds.

And the finalé:
If you select all 4 synth parts to be able to control the total cutoff of what you are playing, don't move the filter too much or you wil get error 004 buffer full <3
