All hail the goddess queeN
The Roland JUNO-60 helped define the sound of the ‘80s and is highly prized for its vintage vibe and unmistakable character. Simply put, it’s the sound you hear in your head when you think of fat, punchy analog synthesizers. With the JUNO-60 Software Synthesizer, you get the full authentic experience of this legendary keyboard in a modern software instrument.
Big, fat analog goodness.
The JUNO-60 was among the earliest models in Roland’s iconic JUNO series, and it still tops many synth aficionado’s lists of all-time favorites. Released in 1982 to replace the JUNO-6, it improved on its predecessor with a then-rare ability to save patches. While the next-generation JUNO-106 would further popularize the JUNO name, the JUNO-60 has a characteristic fatness and hi-fi punch that remains eternally desirable to musicians and producers everywhere.
What makes a JUNO?
The JUNO formula of a single DCO, fat sub-oscillator, and characterful VCF—and, of course, the massive swirling chorus—adds up to a sound you can’t help but love. This deceptively simple architecture, along with an easily approachable workflow, means great sounds just pour out with seemingly no effort. Tried and true and heard on innumerable tracks over the decades, the sound of the Roland JUNO has transcended beyond being just a synthesizer—it’s a JUNO.
