Roland JP-80×0 Editor Intro
Roland JP-80×0 Editor & Librarian is designed to control your Roland JP-8000 / Roland JP-8080 right from your DAW. With our Editor, you can work with your Roland JP-8000 / JP-8080 by the same way you use your VSTi and AudioUnit plug-ins. Our Editor will recall your patch settings when you open your project and the data will be sent to your JP-8000 / JP-8080 automatically once you open your project. Your synthesizer is always synchronized with your session! The only thing you need to worry, is that you power-up your synthesizer.
Roland JP-80×0 Editor brings hardware integration to modern Digital Audio Workstation environments. Roland JP-80×0 Editor & Librarian plug-in works seamlessly with your Roland JP-8000 and/or Roland JP-8000 synthesizers.
It is now much faster to scroll thru sounds and make tweaks within your DAW. Automate parameters with real hardware control names. The best part is, our Editor saves all the data within the project and when you reopen the project, all of the used data gets sent to your hardware, automatically! No more waiting with loading or transferring hardware data. Save time – welcome Total Recall.

Operating system specified settings / limits:
Since Windows platform CAN NOT share resources between applications, it is important that you disable the MIDI input and output from your DAWs settings which you are intending to use with our Editor. If you leave the port open, our Editor will see it and once you click to use it, it might crash your DAW and you will lose your data. Link down below!
macOS works “out from the box” with resource sharing, you are good to go once you insert the plugin into your DAW. However, our plugin can cause you a MIDI loop if you leave the port open / unfiltered from your hardware to your DAW. You can set various filters in your DAW.
