Roland J-6 AIRA Compact Chord Synthesizer

The Roland J-6 is a chord synthesizer. It pairs a powerful chord sequencer with the lavish tones of the renowned JUNO-60 synth.

The possibilities are endless with J-6:

  • Generate soul-stirring song ideas in seconds
  • Experiment with styles and variations to coax dancing lines and rhythmic patterns from your chords
  • Add lush effects to frost your sound
  • Expand your possibilities by interfacing with other AIRA Compacts, MIDI hardware, and music production software.

J-6: Chord Heaven

Additionally, with 100 chord sets spanning a wide range of genres, you’ll always find fresh fuel for songs and jams with the J-6. What’s more, there’s no need to know chords or theory to make cool music. Simply call up a set and compose chord progressions on the fly with one-touch presses on the keyboard.

Craft Your Next Hit

Once you’ve got a chord progression in mind, bring it together with the J-6 chord sequencer. There are 64 patterns with up to 64 steps each, and you can quickly enter chords, style variations, single notes, and tempo changes in each step to mould your masterpieces.

Tweak and Tweeze with J-6

Furthermore, after you’ve captured a pattern on the J-6, hit play and inject even more colour with tactile controls. You can also select different synth presets, and tweak the filter and envelope in real-time. Plus, complete the picture with customizable reverb and delay effects.

Historic JUNO Sound

What’s more, the J-6 puts the influential synth sound behind decades of hits in your pocket or backpack. Our acclaimed Analog Circuit Behaviour (ACB) technology realizes the famous JUNO-60 voice in flawless detail, complete with 64 presets derived from the original.

Additionally, use the J-6 engine with the chord sequencer, play it from the onboard keyboard or an external MIDI controller, or use it as a sound module in an expanded setup.

Expand Your Vision

Finally, the J-6 has the connectivity you need to integrate with other AIRA Compacts and larger music rigs. Back your chord creations with drums and bass from the T-8 Beat Machine. Plus, add evocative vocal textures with the E-4 Voice Tweaker. Additionally, interface with computer DAWS, mobile music apps, and hardware instruments via USB-C or MIDI.
