Everything You Love About Vintage JUNOs - In One Synth
For many, vintage Roland JUNO synthesizers define the sound of the‘80s. Increasinglypopular on theusedmarket, many keyboardists either want one, or deeply regret sellingoneback in the day. With theJU-06A you get the sound, look, and features of both the JUNO-60 andJUNO-106 in one reliable,modern instrument that you can take anywhere.
JUNO where you go.
The JU-06A is compact, yet comfortable for long studio sessions and epic liveperformances.Itruns onbatteries and has a handy built-inspeaker,so JUNO goes where you go.The tough metal panels andsmooth sliders with metal shafts feel greatand stand up to the rigors of life on the road (even if it's justyour daily commute). And ittotally looks the part,with the authentic vintage styling we all know andlove.
Two classic JUNOs in one.
The JU-06A is the best of the JUNO-60 and JUNO-106 in onesynth. It hasthe continuous high-passfilterof the 106, the envelope-controllablepulse-width-modulation ofthe 60, and the unique filter behaviorof both, instantly switchable from the front panel.The sound is indistinguishable from its vintagecounterparts, even while tweakingcontrols or using extreme settings. And no vintage JUNO would becomplete without theswirling sound of its legendary chorus, faithfully recreated, right down to thelovable (and thankfully adjustable) noise.
Arpeggio, chord memory, and step sequencer.
While you may prefer the filter of the JUNO-106, you might miss thearpeggio functionon the JUNO-60.The JU-06A has both—and throws in chord memory and an onboardsequencer to boot.Creatingsequenced lines with chord memory results in polyphonic phrases so thick they have no business comingfrom something that fits in your backpack.
MIDI, USB and external clock input.
WithUSB audio/MIDIandfull-sizedMIDI jacks,youplayand synchronizewith just about any piece ofgear.There’s alsoan external clock input, so you can sync tovintage analog instruments or modernEurorack systems. Not only is thisconvenient,butusing external clock to drive the onboard sequencercanresult in unexpected phrases,rhythmic variations, andother happy accidents.
Add keys and more.
Its compact size means the JU-06A fits just about anywhere, easily controlled from a master keyboard orDAW. Add a DK-01 Boutique Dock for a polished look and three convenient tilt positions. Or add a K-25mKeyboard Unit and you have a totally self-contained, portable instrument offering an unleashedexperience free of wires and other complications.
