Roland Intros JUNO-60 Software Synthesizer

Roland has introduced the JUNO-60 software synthesizer, the latest software instrument available through Roland Cloud.

The soft synth, powered by Roland’s Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) technology, expands on the original, with the ability to switch to the HPF circuit of the next-generation JUNO-106 (and its characteristic bass bump). The oscillator range has also been extended, and there’s a second envelope, for added flexibility. Polyphony has also been expanded to eight notes, with an option to limit it to the original’s six.

There’s also additional chorus option, with the sound of the vintage BOSS CE-1 pedal, along with a selection of reverb, delay, flanger, and overdrive effects.

The JUNO-60 Software Synthesizer is VST3, AU, and AAX compatible and also supports Roland’s PLUG-OUT format for computer-free operation with the SYSTEM-8 hardware synth. You can also use the SYSTEM-8 or a Roland Boutique JU-06/JU-06A for one-to-one, hands-on control of the JUNO-60 plug-in.

The JUNO-60 Software Synthesizer is available now via Roland Cloud.

    1. the Aira polyphonic plugouts only work on the System 8. The monophonic plugouts work on the System 8, System 1 and System 1m. I suspect this is due to DSP capacity. It would have been nice if they could make the mono plugouts polyphonic on the System 8 but they didn’t.

    1. I’m not a fan of the subscription model either, but they do have “lifetime keys” where you can buy a license for one synth. Last time I looked it was $150 or so for the synths I was interested in, which was just expensive enough that I decided to pass
