Any synth fanatic will list the Juno in their list of top synths, especially of the ‘80s as Roland describes it as “a shining star in the vintage synth universe, heard on generations of famous tracks, and still loved by musicians and producers today”.
“A huge slice of its timeless magic comes from an analog stereo chorus effect that imparts so much richness and character that players rarely turn it off.
“With the JUNO-60 Chorus plug-in, you can now infuse any DAW track with the evocative colour of this iconic ’80s effect.”
The lush stereo chorus effect 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, making it hit well above its weight and compete with more sophisticated – and much more expensive – multi-oscillator polysynths of the day,” Roland said.
The simple chorus section of the original unit has been upheld with I and II buttons, the former adding a gentle shimmer to the sound, while the second offers a deeper, wider effect.
Pressing the I and II buttons together calls up a “secret” third mode for exaggerated movement with a distinctive swirl, while the ‘OFF’ button, Roland admits, won’t get much use.
The JUNO-60 Chorus delivers the elegant simplicity of the original effect in a genuine Roland plug-in for your favourite DAW.
Each of the three chorus modes is complete with variable analog noise for the full retro experience.
The vintage JUNO vibe is carried on further with graphics that reflect the synth’s iconic panel and “oh-so-cool” wood side panels.
