ROLAND BOUTIQUE SYNTH MODULES
Roland has released Boutique — a line of limited-edition modules that recreate some of Roland’s legendary analog synths. The book-sized units are battery-powered and feature a built-in speaker so you can take that old-school sound with you wherever you choose. The Boutique family consists of four modules. The JP-08 emulates the Jupiter-8 synth with 36 knobs and sliders from the original Jupiter-8 panel. It is highly programmable and encourages sonic experimentation. The JU-06 models the Juno-106 with 23 adjustable parameters and new enhancements such as a faster LFO and continuously variable high-pass filter. The JX-03 module continues the legacy of the dual-oscillator JX-3P synth as when paired with the PG-200 controller. The four-voice JX-03 gets all 24 knobs from the PG-200, additional extras like new waveform and cross modulation options, and the distinctive tonal character of the JX-3P. Any of these modules can be paired with the optional K-25m Keyboard Unit to turn it into a compact, all-in-one synth with 25 velocity-sensitive keys.
