Possibly the most popular vintage synth with EDM producers and electronic musicians worldwide, the Roland JUNO-106 became legendary for its unique combination of incredible Roland analog sound, simple and efficient interface, connectivity as one of the world’s first MIDI instruments, and relative affordability. More than a simulation, the ACB-powered Roland JUNO-106 PLUG OUT Synthesizer is a complete component-level recreation of the original 6-voice instrument, all the way down to the classic Roland 80017A VCF/VCA integrated circuit! And while hardware JUNO-106 synths disappear as quickly as they are offered for sale in collector’s circles…
Perfect “ACB” recreation of original legendary Roland JUNO-106 Synthesizer

Full hardware control of all functions available by USB connection to Roland SYSTEM-8 Synthesizer
Serves as computer-based editor for JUNO-106 PLUG OUT (pre-loaded in Roland SYSTEM-8 Synthesizer)
VST and AU compatible
As synthesizers grew in complexity, the mid 1980’s began to see many musicians asking for great sounds combined with easier programming. Just as on the original hardware, the ACB-powered Roland JUNO-106 Software Synthesizer delivers on both fronts! The famous sound of JUNO is present in all it’s glory (including the legendary Sub Oscillator and classic Chorus effect!), while the clear and simple sound-shaping controls invite your originality. Of course, our engineers could not stop at recreating the past, and have added some asked-for new features to the LFO, VCF, VCA, and Effects sections while remaining faithful to the original concept (and they may have included an Arpeggiator, too!).
PLUG OUT to the Roland SYSTEM-8
Taking your creative experience to the next level, Roland’s innovative PLUG OUT functionality used in combination with the powerhouse AIRA SYSTEM-8 hardware synthesizer opens up a world of new possibilities. USB-connect the SYSTEM-8 hardware to your computer and enjoy inspiring one-knob-per-function sound-shaping and performance control of the JUNO-106 soft-synth running in your DAW (the SYSTEM-8 can also serve as a high resolution AUDIO and MIDI Interface for your computer!). When it’s time to perform, PLUG OUT transfers the JUNO-106 synth and all your settings to the SYSTEM-8 hardware- Roland reliablity and no computer needed!
