The Roland Boutique JU-06 Synthesizer Module is a recreation of the iconic Juno-106 synthesizer. The new 4-voice JU-06 module features 23 parameters controllable via the front panel and delivers that classic Juno sound, complete with the sought after Juno chorus effect. There are some new additions too, including a faster LFO and continuously variable hi-pass filter (HPF). You can even slide the JU-06 into the optional K-25m keyboard unit for a self-contained, portable synth experience.

The JU-06 also features an on-board 16-step sequencer that lets you quickly try out new ideas such as bass lines and melodies, without the need of even a keyboard controller. It also has a chain mode that allows you to link multiple JU-06 modules using the MIDI ports, adding an additional 4 voices of polyphony.

Recreates Sound and Functionality of the JUNO-106
The JU-06 module has all of the sonic character of the original, with accurate reproduction of the entire sound set including the classic JUNO strings and the much-loved JUNO chorus effect
Hands-On Control for Instant Programming
The original JUNO-106 was known as a good synthesizer to learn on, as each stage of the sound creation process was clearly laid out on the front panel, with an abundance of sliders for hands-on sound-shaping and experimentation. This is still the case with the JU-06, which features 23 knobs and sliders from the original, all inviting you to start tweaking and creating your own customized sounds
Additional Sound-Shaping Options
Like the other members of the Roland Boutique range, the JU-06 includes a few subtle improvements that weren't found on the original models. The JU-06 gains a faster LFO and a continuously variable hi-pass filter (HPF) resulting in a smoother sound
16-Step Sequencer
The on-board 16-step sequencer is a sonic scratchpad that lets you try out new ideas without the need of an external sequencer. It can even be used without a keyboard. If there's no keyboard connected, the ribbon controller lets you preview the sound, making it an ideal way to program patches quickly and easily
Optional K-25m Keyboard Unit
The JU-06 works especially well with the K-25m, an optional 25-key velocity sensitive keyboard that takes your music making to the next level. Once docked in the keyboard, the module's front panel adjusts to three positions for convenient access to the knobs and sliders
Chain Mode
The original JUNO-106 was famous for big lush sounds created by its 6 oscillators/voices. The JU-06 features a chain mode that allows you to connect two JU-06 modules using the MIDI ports and create one, 8-voice synthesizer. Adding additional modules adds another 4 voices of polyphony with each module. The two synths can be controlled together from an external keyboard controller, and you can edit the sound of both units together from one master module. This is ideal for filter sweeps and envelope adjustments
Battery or USB Bus Power
Some of the best music is made away from the studio, so the Roland Boutique series runs on 4x AA batteries, ready for when inspiration strikes. Alternatively, you can power the JU-06 via USB Bus power
USB Audio Interface for Direct Recording
The built-in USB port also functions as a high-quality 24-bit, 44.1 kHz audio interface, for a fast, simple and reliable way of recording directly to your DAW application. You can keep your favorite patches and sequencer patterns safe too, via the USB data backup function
