Roland today introduced the latest in its line of compact Boutique synthesizers, the Boutique JU-06A Synthesizer.
Roland calls the JU-06A “a nostalgic homage to Roland’s famed synths of the 1980s”. It builds on its Roland Boutique JU-06 predecessor with improved sequencer, interface, trigger in, arpeggiator and more.
The Boutique JU-06A combines the vintage sounds and function of the Juno 6, 60 and 106. As a result, you can control the high-pass filter of the 106 and the envelope-controllable pulse-width-modulation of the 60 directly from the JU-06A’s front panel.
Here’s the official intro video:
The JU-06A features chord memory, an onboard sequencer, and the JUNO-60’s arpeggio in an instrument compact enough to fit inside a backpack.
The JU-06A offers both USB audio/MIDI and full-sized MIDI jacks, giving you the ability to play and synchronize with nearly any other piece of gear in your set-up. The JU-06A can easily connect to a master keyboard, DAW, K-25m Keyboard Unit, or a DK-01 Boutique Dock.
Pricing and Availability
The Roland JU-06A is expected to be available in the U.S. in September 2019 for $399.99.
