Exploring the Various Models in Roland's Vintage-Inspired Synth Series

The Roland Boutique Designer Series features a handful of vintage-inspired units built in collaboration with Studio Electronic in 2016. This series takes old sounds from famous vintage Roland synthesizers like the Jupiter-8 and the Juno-106 and presents them them in more modern and compact units, allowing for easier control and editing.

Using "Analog Circuit Behavior" Technology (ACB), these synths get their authentically vintage sound by recreating the specifications of the original analog circuits. Each item in this series can easily be powered by USB or batteries and can be paired with the K25m keyboard controller.

For synth players looking to recreate the vintage sounds of their dreams without breaking the bank, the Roland Boutique Designer Series Presents a multitude of fun and musical options.
