Heard on tracks from Aphex Twin and a host of other artists, the machines have been faithfully recreated, with added grit from Roland’s Analogue Circuit Behaviour model, and many other new features, with an updated sequencer added to the digital versions of the drum machines.

Roland’s Cloud membership, which features the Juno-106 as well as a number of other iconic synthesisers and drum machines, starts at £2.99 monthly. They have set out to create accurate remakes of their classic machines, allowing them to be controlled by external hardware.
