Roland Adds Jupiter–8 and Juno–106 Emulations to Cloud Service

Roland has released Roland Cloud 4.0, including emulations of its famed Jupiter–8 and and Juno–106 analog polysynths. Roland Cloud is a subscription service that allows users access to VSTs and AUs with a $19.99 monthly fee.

The addition of these synth emulations is big news for synth fans who don’t have a vintage instrument collector’s budget.

The Jupiter–8—made famous by late–period Roxy Music and Michael Jackson’s Thiller—tend to run for upwards of $8000. The Juno–106, used most notably by Daft Punk, runs closer to the price of a modern polyphonic synthesizer, somewhere between $1000 and $2000.

Roland developed these emulations with the same Analog Circuit Behavior technology that it has used to develop the Aira series. With this software technology, Roland designed the TR–8 and TB–3, well received updates of the TR–808 and TB–303 respectively.

Roland also previously used the ACB technology to build hardware emulations of the Jupiter–8 with the JP–08 and the Juno–106 with the JU-06.
