Last week, Roland teased us with a vague announcement of an upcoming product, fueling a great deal of speculation; thankfully, they didn’t keep us waiting too long this time. The company has just officially announced its upcoming Boutique series, consisting of digital reissues of the so-called “holy trinity” – the Jupiter-8, Juno-106, and JX-3P.
The Boutique synthesizer line, which includes the JP-08, JU-06, and JX-03, will make a nice addition to your favorite gear from the AIRA series. Designed to be ultra-portable, the synths are compact and lightweight, run on battery or USB power, and can be played by either an external MIDI keyboard or the optional mountable keyboard. Each unit features a built-in speaker, step sequencer, dual ribbon controls, and four-note polyphony. As of now, Roland has not disclosed the release date and pricing for the Boutique line, so be sure to keep checking back for updates. For now, enjoy the video below.
