Everybody loves the Roland Juno chorus, right? Then there’s one more reason to celebrate this Christmas. Arturia are offering their Chorus JUN-6 as a free gift until December 29th!
Chorus JUN-6 is modeled after the iconic analog stereo effect found in the Roland Juno series of analog polysynths from the ‘80s.
After all, the success of the Roland Juno synths was also due to the addition of two chorus types, which would spice up the one-oscillator-per-voice architecture.
Arturia recently released the V Collection 8, which features an emulation of the Roland Juno 6. It makes sense to see them taking the chorus out of it and releasing it a separate plugin, which will be part of their commercial plugin offering after this Christmas week.
-Iconic vintage sound
A rich stereo sound favored by everyone from Tangerine Dream to Tame Impala, yours to enjoy.
-Simple to use
Immersive swirling color at the touch of a button (or two) – no menus needed.
-Authentic BBD character
Faithfully modeled to reproduce the unmistakably warm organic grit of analog circuitry.
Additional controls have been added for when you want to fine-tune your sound.
You can use Chorus JUN-6 inside any VST, AAX, or AU compatible recording software.
Pricing and Availability
The Arturia Chorus JUN-6 will be free until December 29th 2020. You need to have an Arturia account or create one to register the plugin. You will then be able to activate and install this Roland Juno chorus emulation through the Arturia Software Center application.
FYI: Arturia is not the first company offering a free plugin that emulates the iconic Roland Juno chorus.
TAL, the maker of the classic TAL-U-NO-LX synth plugin, also has (since 2017) a free version of this chorus, named TAL-Chorus-LX. You can download the plugin here.
I haven’t compared the two yet, but I would expect the Arturia version to be more faithful to the original Roland Juno chorus simply because it’s a much newer plugin – usually (but not always) when it comes to algorithmic modeling newer also means more accurate. Anyway, they’re both free, so here’s your chance to put the two side by side and compare them!
