Jura is the classic synth for a modern music production studio.
The sound of yesterday, the features of tomorrow.
In 1982 something magical happened in the world of synths, a Japanese legend was born.
It was one of the synths that defined the sound of the 1980s and was used on countless hits by artists such as The Eurythmics, Cyndi Lauper, and Aha. Now it’s loved more than ever and used on tracks by acts like Charlie Puth, Tame Impala, and the Weeknd.
Now we bring you something very special,
the authentic sound of that 80s synth
But that’s just the start, we wanted to build on the legend and make it fit for modern music production workflows. So for those with qualified AKAI MPC/FORCE standalone versions, you get complete touch control of every parameter. You can really get your hands on this vintage classic and craft your future hits.
“JURA shows that it is absolutely possible to improve on a classic. Your favourite 20th century synthesiser has been elegantly reimagined as a beautiful, inspirational software instrument for the 21st century.”
Award Winning Composer, Peter Jackson, Brian Eno, Ed Sheeran
