Roland JUNO-60 Software Synthesizer

Roland might not be too keen on releasing direct hardware reboots of its classic analogue synths, but it is certainly got no problem doing it in software. Roland has introduced the JUNO-60 software synthesizer, the latest software instrument available through Roland Cloud.


Manufactured between 1982 and 1984, and one of the defining synths of that decade, the Juno-60 is a much-loved polysynth with a single DCO, sub-oscillator and VCF. In addition, there is also that famous Juno chorus effect.


The software synth is powered by its ACB (Analog Circuit Behaviour) modelling technology and promises to recreate the original synth’s “odd quirks and charming limitations”. Additionally, there are some new features ; – example, you can choose between the standard Juno-60 filter and the high-pass filter circuit from the Juno-106. Other enhancements include an extended oscillator range and a second envelope. As on the original, you get two chorus modes plus a third ‘secret’ one that’s accessed by pressing both chorus select buttons at the same time, and there is now an extra chorus option based on the sound of the BOSS CE-1 pedal, along with Reverb, delay, flanger and overdrive effects as well.


The JUNO-60 Software Synthesizer can operate as a VST/AU/AAX plugin on PC and Mac. The Juno-60 also supports Roland’s Plug-Out format, meaning that it enable you to use it in the company’s System-8 hardware synth. In addition, you can also use the System-8 or Roland Boutique JU-06/JU-06A to provide hardware control of the plugin.


The JUNO-60 is part of the Roland Cloud Legendary series, which is available on the Ultimate subscription tier of the service. Anyone with a Roland account can also purchase the plugin outright via the Lifetime Keys option for $149.


The JUNO-60 Software Synthesizer is available now via Roland Cloud. Find out more on the Roland Cloud website.
