SampleScience releases Deep Jupiter, a FREE sample-based analog bass sound module VST plugin for Windows and macOS.
Deep Jupiter is based on the iconic Roland Jupiter-8 analog synthesizer. The plugin uses eight public domain Jupiter-8 multi-samples as the sound source.
The multi-sampled patches focus on the classic analog bass sounds that fit any synthwave, chillwave, synthpop, or electronica track.
If you like analog synth sounds but don’t enjoy building synth from scratch, using a sample-based instrument like Deep Jupiter makes sense. You get instant access to some classic synth sounds without the hassle (or pleasure, depending on your perspective) of programming a synth.
That said, SampleScience’s latest plugin still lets you customize the included Roland Jupiter-8 samples.
The plugin features an ADSR volume envelope, a multi-mode filter, an LFO module, and a preamp. It also includes a reverb effect, portamento, three different voice modes (polyphonic, monophonic, legato), and a stereo pan control.
Here’s how SampleScience describes Deep Jupiter:
“Description: Deep Jupiter is an analog bass sound module featuring the sound of a famous 80s synthesizer with the name Jupiter in it. The plugin has 8 multi-sampled raw bass suite for electronic genres like synthwave, chillwave, retrowave, and synthpop. The sounds in this module are public domain (not the plugin itself which is copyrighted).”
Deep Jupiter is available as a “pay what you want” download via Gumroad. You can enter $0 to download the plugin for free or enter any other amount to support SampleScience.
