Authentic 80's synth sounds for your iPad.
Standalone and AUv3 80's synthesizer instrument. Accurate Juno 60 emulation.
All sounds are generated in real time without any samples. The synth supports normal MIDI and the newer MPE standard. MPE pressure and brightness modulation intensity can be controlled in the CONTROL section of the synth. MPE Pitch uses +-48 semitones. MPE does not work when the arpeggiator is enabled.
All synth parameters support MIDI learn and can be controlled with a hardware MIDI controller.
The presets are compatible with the desktop version and a lot of preset banks by third party companies are available for this instrument.
Starting the standalone version automatically copies the presets from the document folder into the shared AUv3 sandbox folder.
Sync arp to MIDI clock fixed.
Sync presets with AUv3 sandbox folder when starting standalone improved (also delete moved or deleted presets).
Ratings and Reviews
My Juno 60 Patches Replicated
I’m giving TAL’s Juno 60 emulator 5 stars because I was able to replicate patches from my vintage Juno 60. To have my custom Juno 60 patches portable on the iPad is just astounding. Yes, there are minor tonal differences, but considering that I’m working within the limitations of the iPad audio out and, taking into consideration that there’s a certain full round warm quality to the Juno that is not replicable digitally, this app is still astounding. Only thing that could be improved is that the faders jump when starting to move them. A “soft takeover” on the faders is needed instead of a jump. Although’ to be fair, this is what happens on the real thing. It would be a nice feature though. As a vintage Juno 60 owner, I’m blown away.
One of the best software synths ever is finally here
A few minor UI things could be ironed out in future updates but even if they never were I would still give this a 10/10 because all that matters is the sound and this synth is one of the best. I just checked my iOS synth folder and I have 74 iOS synths. All the best ones money can buy and this is without question in the top 3.
If you guys bring Tal-Bassline to iOS I’ll buy it twice just to say thanks. The 101 is my favorite synth and there is no better recreation than Tal-Bassline. Thanks again to all involved with bringing this to us.
Great synth - iOS touch support needs work
The synth itself sounds great. I for sure recommend it. The touch support on iOS is pretty rough. I’ve found that moving sliders up/down doesn’t always move the sliders, I need to drag them left/right. Additionally when tapping on some keyboard keys, the keyboard doesn’t respond to the touch (I’ve noticed this specifically with C2). Using a mouse or using a MIDI controller with this app is the way to go for now.
Another great thing to note about this app - being able to download the presents for this synth online and use them in the iOS app is amazing! It really helps get started when you have hundreds of presets to choose from.
