Roland JU-06A Synthesizer: An Overview

The Roland JU-06A Synthesizer is a revamped Boutique with two perfectly modeled JUNO synths in one. Based off Roland‘s JU-60 and JU106 models, the JU-06A is a portable combo of the two with chord memory functions that allow you create a huge variety of sounds, and add them to any mix.

Play Chords the Way You Want

The JU-06A features a chord memory function which can be used at the same time as the built-in arpeggiator or step sequencer (16 steps) for some sick polyphonic phrases. Note Mode turns preset buttons into actual notes that you can play to break the boundaries on interesting melodic effects. The user memory includes tons of sound patches, 16 sequencer patterns, and 16 chord memories.

Connect and Add to Any Mix

Control the JU-06A from a master keyboard or DAW, add a DK-01 Boutique Dock for convenient tilting position options, or a K-25m Keyboard to fit your needs. On the back panel, you’ll find an Extension Clock input to poly chain it to the JU-06, Headphones jack, Output jack, Mix input, MIDI ports, and a USB port. Feel free to synch it with a modular.

Take Your Sound with You

Save all the cumbersome, heavy lifting for later! The JU-06A is a compact, 11-13/16″ x 1-15/16″ x 5-1/16″ (WxHxD) module that easily fits into a backpack and weighs just 2 lbs, 4 oz. It also runs off battery power (4 x AA) for up to 6 hours, or USB bus power.
