Description

Details

The Roland JU-06A Synthesizer melds the best parts of the JUNO-60 and JUNO-106 to make a modern and compact battery-powered instrument you can take anywhere. With vintage styling and modern functionality, Roland has created a versatile instrument compact enough to fit inside a backpack that works equally well for live performance as it does for a studio set up.

Classic JUNO Sounds

The JU-06A takes the features two of the best Roland synths ever created, the JUNO-60 and JUNO-106. The continuous high-pass filter of the 106 is present, alongside the envelope-controllable pulse-width-modulation of the 60 and the unique filter behaviour of both, all instantly accessible from the front panel with tweakable controls. Indistinguishable from its legendary counterparts you also get the classic JUNO chorus, painstakingly recreated down to the much-loved noise which is also adjustable.

Form and Functionality

The JU-06A has the arpeggio function of the JUNO-60 as well as the filter of the JUNO-106 chucking in chord memory and an onboard sequencer to add additional functionality. Create sequenced lines with chord memory results in polyphonic phrases that are so thick sounding you'll be surprised it's coming from such a small unit. The JU-06A really is the best of both worlds, getting you classic sounds with all the modern functionality you'd expect. USB audio/MIDI jacks let you play and synchronize with pretty much any piece of gear. The external clock output gives you the ability to sync vintage analogue instruments or modern Eurorack systems, giving you plenty of scope for sonic sculpting.

Everywhere You Go

The Roland JU-06A is small enough to be transportable but comfortable enough to put up with long studio sessions and live performances. It's battery-powered and has a built-in speaker meaning it performs wherever you go and is tough enough to put with the rigours of life on the road. It can be controlled from a master keyboard or DAW to ensure that it will fit into any studio setup with ease and it's wire-free functionality means you won't spend ages setting up, just plug in and go.

The Roland JU-06A Synthesizer showcases Roland's attention to detail by appealing to a vintage aesthetic whilst delivering modern build quality and functionality. Its accessible price means you get vintage synths that will inspire you to create whilst being fun-to-use. A master of versatility, the JU-06A has plenty of connectivity options to ensure that this handy unit will fit neatly into any existing setup.
