Mercury-6: A Tribute to the Jupiter-6 Analog Synthesizer

Mercury-6 faithfully recreates the iconic Jupiter-6 analog polyphonic synthesizer, originally introduced in 1983. Often overlooked compared to its predecessors, the Jupiter-6 has emerged as one of Roland’s most sought-after classic synthesizers, renowned for its dark and complex character.

Released as a more affordable alternative to the flagship Jupiter-8, the six-voice Jupiter-6 holds a significant place in the history of analog polysynths. While visually similar to its counterpart, it boasted a distinctively aggressive sound, ideal for cutting-edge techno and electro genres. Its versatile filter design, multiple waveform support, and extensive modulation capabilities set it apart.

Despite its mono output and limited polyphony, the Jupiter-6’s popularity endured, especially in genres like big beat, house, and techno. Cherry Audio’s Mercury-6 encapsulates the essence of this classic while enhancing its features for modern DAW production.

With additions like velocity sensitivity, improved split mode, and layering capabilities, Mercury-6 offers expanded creative possibilities. Enhanced functionality includes an extended polyphony of 16 notes, improved arpeggiator with MIDI tempo sync, chord memory mode, and integrated studio-quality effects.

Boasting over 500 meticulously crafted presets and flexible MIDI mapping, Mercury-6 delivers the authentic Jupiter-6 experience into the future, ensuring its legacy continues to thrive for generations to come. Experience the evolution of the Jupiter-6 with Mercury-6!
