Roland has introduced the JUNO-60 Chorus, a new software effect available through Roland Cloud.
Released in 1982, the JUNO-60 is still popular with musicians today, and big part its character comes from the analog stereo chorus effect. With the JUNO-60 Chorus, Roland has put the sound of this effect in a standalone plug-in for the first time.
The lush stereo chorus in the JUNO-60 was specially tuned to enhance the synth’s single DCO, fat sub-oscillator, and characterful VCF. Players quickly found it to be an essential component of the JUNO’s unique voice.
Like the original hardware, the software version has two push-button chorus modes, plus a third “secret” mode accessed by pressing both buttons at once. Each mode is modeled in meticulous detail, complete with variable analog noise for the full retro experience.
The plug-in is available in VST3, AU, and AAX versions for Mac and Windows DAWs, and native Apple silicon support provides full compatibility with the latest Mac computers.
