Roland Boutique Series Officially Launched

Roland Boutique Synths Unveiled
Roland Boutique JP-08
The new Roland Boutique series of limited-edition synthesizers has officially been launched.

The three new modules including the JP-08, JU-06, and the JX-03 faithfully represent some of Roland's most revered and classic synthesizers the JX-3P, Jupiter-8 and Juno-106.

The highly-portable Boutique series come with built-in speakers and battery operation allowing users to create music boasting Roland-quality whenever or wherever they are.

The USB feature means that these modules can be plugged straight into a DAW.

The JP-08 is the sound and control of a Jupiter-8, Roland's most beloved synthesizer, with a few new twists. The Jupiter-8 was already renowned for its versatility but the new JP-08 boasts even more programmable options with extra LFOs and a bigger VCO range for even more sound shaping potential.

The JU-06 is the compact and modern edition of the Juno-106 - considered the last great lead synth and was released in 1984, and a firm favourite within house and techno genres. The JU-06 has the much-loved Juno chorus effect and features faster LFO and a continuously variable hi-pass filer.

The iconic JX-3P has also been reincarnated for 2015 in the form of the JX-03. This new Boutique module embodies the sound and control of the JX-3P, which musicians loved - encompassing everything from big, sweeping pads to warm lead sounds bursting with personality. This new version also includes extra waveforms and extended range for sonic experimentation.

Furthermore, the Roland K-25m keyboard can be used in conjunction with the new modules for expanded control. Follow Gear4music on Facebook and Twitter to be the first to hear about the latest music gear offers and news.
