These VST plugins are not really “close emulation” but all these VST synths are inspired by the Roland JP-8000 and try to emulate the famous “supersaw” sound.
Let’s go trance :
1. Superwave P8 VSTi
- Roland JD-800 Editor Librarian Midi Quest for Macintosh and Windows Sound Quest's Midi Quest multi-instrument editor/librarian gives you the tools to get the most from your Roland JD-800. Midi Quest includes all of the standard features you would expect to find in a JD-800 Editor Librarian along with unique capabilities found nowhere else.
- Roland JD-800 Model Expansion Anyway, Roland has chased it down, cornered it and roped it into a Model Expansion for their Zen-Core platform. You can run it in the Zenology virtual instrument or it can be loaded into Zen-Core compatible devices such as the Jupiter-X and Jupiter-Xm synthesizers which is going to give it a whole new life I think.
Legowelt has released ROLAND JD-800 Sample Kit, a free sound pack featuring 350 WAV samples recorded from the legendary Roland JD-800 synthesizer. Enter the Legowelt Roland JD-800 Sample kit 350 wav samples from Rolands 1992 flagship monster synth Colossal Juicy Thick Basses, bizarre unearthly pads, uncanny strings, mystifying effects, entrancing chords and lots lots more.

The JD-800 Patch Organizer created by Laurent Lecatelier-Dudec (France), was released as freeware in 24/04/1999 (date in original author´s site) and is no more available from the programmer´s site.
In more recent years, Gwydion Elderwin (Australia) created a JD-800 Randon Bank Creator and a Jd-800 to JD-990 Bank Converter.
About the patch banks here.
The first I found many years ago, was compiled by Stephen Drake, the guy who kept most of JD material available for years. This site is proud to pay him our tribute. Thanks Stephen!
The first internet banks are so-so grouped, thus makes some sense.
Gwydion also have done a strong work removing duplicates from hundreds of patches, adding lots more and creating a library for each synth. Still is missing time to classify all that stuff into categories.
Missing all you my friends, I know business and daily life take time, but I would be happy to receive some news.
The bank files are in .rar format. You need Winrar or compatible to extract it.
Christian Morency released a Beta version of a VST Patch Editor for the Roland JD-800 and JD-990.
