New Software Synth, TAL-Pha, Recreates The Sounds Of The Roland Alpha Juno



TAL Software has introduced TAL-Pha, a new instrument – for Linux, Max & Windows – that emulates the sound of the analog 80’s synthesizer Alpha Juno II and the MKS-50 rack-mount equivalent.

In addition to recreating the original’s sound in software, the plugin can read and convert sysex information from the original hardware and can be used as a MIDI controller.


  • Emulation of the 80’s hardware synthesizer.
  • Resonance boost for filter self-oscillation.
  • Detune, modulate, and sync the pulse part of the DCO.
  • FX section with delay, reverb, and a bell-eq.
  • Arpeggiator with different modes.
  • Stereo UNISON mode with up to seven voices.
  • Aftertouch and MPE support.
  • Microtuning support (tun file import and MTS Client).
  • Original factory banks included.
  • More than 380 fresh presets by Electric Himalaya, The Unfinished, Saif Sameer, emptyvessel and TAL.
  • Individual tuning for every voice converts the synths DCO into a VCO.
  • Reads Sysex files and Sysex MIDI from the hardware device.
  • Can also control a hardware device. If enabled, it sends Sysex through the plug-in MIDI output (when supported by your DAW).

Here’s a head-to-head comparison with the original hardware:
