AIR Music Technology releases Jura “The Synth Of 82”

The Jura is out – Air Music releases new plugin emulation of Roland Juno. Roland Juno-60 synth, to be precise, the 1982 synth that the company is now emulating in its new Jura plugin. Though it is from 1982, but you can also switch to a more modern interface.

You will note from the screenshot that Jura is giving off strong visual Juno vibes, and if you are happy to operate it using an emulation of the original front panel, you have the option to do so.

However, there is also an extended, modern GUI. Switch to this when you want to dive a little deeper.

Jura emulates all the original features, extras include a VCF with saturation and drive, two DCO noise types (modern and vintage) and a second envelope that adds another string to your sound design bow. And, as well as the classic Juno chorus section, which features three modes and a mix control, there’s a further effects section that offers delay, reverb and 3-band EQ. And playable in the authentic 6-voice configuration, you can also extend the polyphony and make use of Unison and Chord modes.

What they say about it:

“Jura gives you the best of both worlds – the classic sound of an ‘80s synth monster, coupled with some very cool modern workflow enhancements.

Jura comes in several versions; a plugin for AU, VST, and AAX DAWs, and there’s the MPC/FORCE Standalone versions for the complete hardware experience of touch control.

Jura is the classic synth for a modern music production studio. The sound of yesterday, the features of tomorrow. The synth of ‘82… reimagined for your future hits.”
