Arturia just released Chorus JUN-6, a chorus plugin inspired by the Roland Juno-6 vintage analog synthesizer. The plugin is free to download from Arturia’s website until December 29th, 2020.
Chorus JUN-6 is a chorus effect inspired by the legendary analog chorus module from Roland’s Juno line of synthesizers. The plugin emulates the classic JUNO chorus sound while adding a few features that aren’t available in the original.
Taking a closer look at the interface, the JUN-6 plugin offers two modes, just like the iconic Juno-6 chorus. Also, just like in the real Roland Juno-6, these two modes can operate simultaneously for a more dramatic chorusing effect.
However, this is where the JUN-6 plugin from Arturia gets more advanced. It adds a “manual” mode that lets the user fine-tune the modulation parameters. With the “manual” mode enabled, you can freely adjust the modulation rate, depth, and phase.
Last but not least, the user can bypass the plugin, select the input type (mono or stereo), and adjust the dry/wet mix. The mix control feature is a handy way to experiment with more dramatic chorusing effects while still preserving some of the original audio.
It’s not hard to guess that the Chorus JUN-6 plugin is taken from Arturia’s recently released JUN-6 virtual synthesizer. And just like the full synth, Arturia claims that the Chorus JUN-6 plugin is “a circuit-perfect emulation of the timeless Juno synthesizer chorus.”
One thing is for sure – the Chorus JUN-6 plugin sounds fantastic. Check the official demo video below to hear the plugin in action.
Obviously, a chorus based on the Roland Juno-6 will sound great on any synthesizer. But, you can also experiment with using Chorus JUN-6 to enhance guitars, vocals, or even drums. Generally speaking, it delivers a lush analog-style chorusing effect that warms up the signal while adding depth.
Here’s how Arturia describes the Chorus JUN-6 plugin:
“The Juno chorus is unique in its popularity – rather than being a pedal, a rack-mounted unit, or a secret studio weapon, it was built into the classic ‘80s synths of the same name. Ultimately, Chorus JUN-6 brings this beautiful analog vintage effect into your modern production workflow, faithfully reproduced with component-level accuracy, and tweaked with some flexible enhancements.”
