June-21 is a Roland Juno / MKS-50 emulation.

June-21 can read and play Juno 1 / 2 MKS-50 presets. The emulator includes Juno 2 factory "Preset" and "Memory" bank tones. Many tones can be found on the web, in a form of a .SYX bulk dump extracted from synths.

The text and schematics are partly inspired by the original Juno-2 documentation. The look of the GUI is obviously inspired by the Roland PG-300.

Nota Bene: June-21 is still in development and is not a perfect emulator, so some tones can be far from the real thing and some won’t work (but some can be very accurate and pleasing!). As of now (Dec 2019) some things are not implemented : Portamento, chord memory, octave transpose : not done yet Aftertouch : won’t be done (at least by me) as my own Juno-2’s aftertouch is not working.

Using LMDE 5; unzipped it and copied the files into my .vst, vst3 and lv2 folders (just like all the other synths i use). June21 does not show up, neither in Ardour 6 nor in Qtractror, nor in Bespoke Synth. Any ideas how to get it running?

Using FL21, neither the VST3 nor the dll is working.

In REAPER the Linux version comes up as a VST instrument, but the Windows version as a VST effect. Configurations for the latter will load in the former, but not vice versa.

Trying to make it run on Cubase 11 64-bit, tried the trick with copying libjs.dll and csound.64 to win32 and win64 but June-21 is still not available as an instrument. Anyone successful?

Seems like an ok plug but it could benefit from more intuitive design and more user friendly features (e.g. having the presets pre-loaded).

June21 ist on the blacklist on Cubase A10 , it supports no 32bit plugins ?! Strange and a pity.

The oops and arpeggiator patches crash the stand alone and plugin.

I see that author of this vst is active, so i am gona write how i fixed problem of June-21 vst not working on my FL Studio 11(Windows 7 64) and showind wierd signs on the plugin screen. I took June 21 vst folder from a random place from before to: C:/ProgramFiles/Steinberg/VST plugins. I opened standalone version, went to options and made changes that were needed for it to play as a standalone). Also after that i coppied files libjs.dll and csound.64 to c:/windows/System32 and also c:/windows/sysWOW64 (Those are default places frere windows runtime libiraries are installed, solved a few problems that way with dll-s) Went back to daw, opened vst and it played right away, no problems! Cheers

Which Vst folder did you mean, should I move to program/Steinberg/vst ? There are no folder in that download zip

libjs.dll and csound.64 are files that are in June21 folder, but they should be copied to a Windows32 and wow64 folders on a c disk

The standalone version sound AWESOME but I can't import the VST in ableton (the parent folder is my custom VST2 AND VST3 folder but the plugin won't come up in the plugins section)

Did you try the new version 0.9.6 ?

One of the best sounding VST synths for me with user-friendly interface. I'll wait for the next version. Standalone version (v0.9.6) doesn't detect ASIO. Seib's SAVIHost works well. "Just copy" installation - FL Plugin Manager detects plugin but shows "error", Ableton sees nothing. Installed version - FL Plugin Manager thinks that it is VST effect, Ableton thinks that it is Audio. Tested on Windows 7, i5, FL 20, Live 10, Traktor Audio.

This works but it adds extra dll files to my vst plugin scan. That is not something other vsts have done to me. You are standing out with that. I like to keep my vstplugin scan clean with no non working plugins, unfortunately the extra dlls are necessary for the plugin to work. Maybe try a different route?

Would it be better if the DLL is in a subdirectory ?
Graham Dec 20 2020

It would be worth a try having the extra, non plugin, dll's in a sub folder.
Hopefully waiting for a working vst Apr 13 2020

Looks very promising, but am I getting it right that Juno-21 is only working as standalone on Windows? I've tried the vst in Ableton on Windows 10, but he didn't recognized it. Keep up the good work!

At my system, also no sound in FL 20, the sound display shows crazy signs. If I open the standalone of June 1, it works, but how to integrate into the DAW?!
Reticular Oct 21 2020

Not sure what OS you are using. It was showing crazy display to mee too, and no sound. Here is what i did: FL Studio 11/ Windows 7 64* I moved June21 vst folder from a random place to c:/progfile../Steinbe../VST plug.. Took libsl.dll and csound64.dll from the june21 folder and coppied them to c:/Windows/System32 and also c:/Windows/SysWOW64 (those are default places where windows runtime libiraries are installed). After that, opened my daw, loaded June21 and it played right away, no problem. Not sure if moving it fixed the problem, or both of the "tricks" i did. Cheers

Overall a nice vst. Good for creating patches for the hardware synth, wich I own. But i have some audio issues with the plugin. One voice always has like a high bell/plug sound to it, wich should not be there.

Yes it's a bug, eisbaer23 nailed it, if you want to try, just download the last version of the .csd file :-) Or wait for the next version in few days

Please use the latest 0.9.4 version, it fixes sooo much stuff. :)

When installing in the vst folder I then go to open the program in my DAW and it just stalls then crashes the DAW.

Doesn't seem to work in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS: I tried with Reaper and Ardour, but both DAWS couldn't recognise the .so file... I hope you will be able to fix it in the next updates, it looks a very nice vst! Thanks for developing it.

I use Ubuntu 19.04 and ardour (Ardour 5.12.0, rev 1:5.12.0-3). there seem to be a problem with some version of ardour and Cabbage, can you give me your Ardour version ? => I'll input a bug on github to keep track of it (not sure where there problem is yet
Linux_User Jan 16 2020

I use the same Ardour version, but the plugin doesn't show up, I only see its name flashing while Ardour is searching for new vsts.

With me also did not appear in the reaper. I use zorin os lite, based on ubuntu 18.04 .. Thanks a lot for the plugin, it will be very good in my projects, I will follow your work .. :)

could one of you test another Cabbage plugins (for instance https://github.com/T0NIT0RMX/ToneZ) This way I could understand if it's a Cabbage related issue ? Thanks :-)
