TAL-U-No-62

Reviewed By ninedayswonder99 [all]

Version reviewed: 1.5 on Windows

Since a few days I've got a real Roland Juno 60 at home. It belongs to a band member. I was curious if this U-No62 VSTi really was any good compared to the real thing. Downloaded it and to cut a long story short: it's amazing.

The online samples from TAL showed no difference at all with the real Juno, but I had to hear it for myself. I programmed some U-No62 presets on the Juno and vice versa. After a few hours programming and comparing I was convinced. Some sounds sounded exactly the same. Some? You may ask. I admit I'm not a skilled programmer, but if I can do it...

The interface was at one point a bit annoying to work with. Yes, the GUI looks good. Nearly exactly like the real Juno 60, but the scales of the parameters are not the same. The parameter 'stripes' are also difficult to read. I also think that the parameters of the U-No62 react slightly in another way than the real beast. But after some trying I was able to get some striking resemblances. And maybe it's also the fact that no Juno sounds exactly the same, old material not working correct anymore etc. After all it's a real analogue synth.

The features are okay. Yes, the possibilities are limited, just like the real thing. You won't get a lot of different sounding pads or basses. On the other hand: with the self oscillating filter you can do things other synths can't.

There are not many presets and they are not all that great. Some are, however. But this synth is very easy to program. For the first time in my life I've found myself programming good presets. On the internet you can find schemes of real Juno sounds. But if you haven't got the real one to compare, the results are not always exact.

There's no documentation as far as I know, but you can download the Juno 60 manual at Rolands site. I don't have experience with customer support. If TAL gives this great synth for free, that's already supportive enough for me.

Conclusion: although the interface reacts slightly different to sound than my real Juno and the parameter scales are a bit different and difficult to read, this VSTi sounds exactly like a real Juno. The sound has a real character. Great work!

Just beautiful, TAL-Audio have the best free synths. Hands down. If there is a better company who release this quality of free synths for OS X I'd love to know about them :)

I just downloaded the TAL-U-NO-62 successfully from here: http://tal-software.com/products/tal-u-no-62

and loaded "Acrobatic U-no Synths & Basses" banks (above) into it. Very nice - great work Acrobat! ....and thank you.

I used it to recreate the melodic synth of A-ha's Take on Me and it sounds identical.

It's not free, as far as I can find. My version starts a noise every now and then, and asks for registration. The site invites to BUY NOW.

So, this is just an advertisement.

I have never seen what you are talking about.

You are actually using TAL-U-NO-62 ? Or TAL-U-NO-LX ?

If you have downloaded and installed TAL-U-NO-LX it is absolutely normal to hear the plug-in fading in a white noise sound every minute as long as you haven't registered it.

If you have really downloaded and installed TAL-U-NO-62 it is absolutely impossible to hear that white noise every now and then... simply because there is neither restriction at all nor any ad at all in that totally free tool.

Conclusion : you have downloaded and installed TAL-U-NO-LX instead of TAL-U-NO-62. That's all.
