Developer Jan Östman has announced two new synthesizers inspired by the voice of the Roland Juno, the Jupiter-X monosynth and the smaller Ju-X.
Östman says that the DCO is a replica of the Juno-106 DCO, but the original 8253 timer is replaced with an ATmega.
The Jupiter-X is a tabletop monosynth that recreates a single Juno DCO voice.
- A monophonic synth with a single Juno DCO voice.
- Oscillator with SAW, SQR/PWM and SUB waveforms.
SUPERSAW unison setting for the SAW waveform.
- LFO and AR-envelope.
- DSP filter with LPF, HPF and Resonance setting.
- MIDI input for note on/off.
- 5 volt CV/Gate input for oscillator. Frequency range 65-2093Hz (C2-C7).
- 5 volt CV input for filter cutoff.
- External audio input to filter.
The Jupiter-X is priced at $330, including shipping.
In addition, Östman announced the Ju-X synth – a smaller Juno-inspired synth.
- The 65x60mm all analog Ju-X monophonic Juno voice..
- Just CV/Gate, PWM-CV and Pitch-CV 0-5v analog inputs.
- SUPERSAW unison setting for the SAW waveform.
- Great for sequencing and use with external filter.
Ju-X is priced at $70, including shipping.
Östman expects to have sound demos available in December. DIY versions are also planned.
