Roland Juno-6

Roland Juno-6 Image

The first in a series of amazingly affordable quality synthesizers from Roland's amazing Juno family! The Juno-6 is a six voice polyphonic analog synthesizer! It's a very stable synth thanks to its digitally controlled analog oscillators. The Juno-6 sounds great, however it lacks basic necessities like MIDI control and patch memory storage.

The next generation Juno-60 version added 56 patches of memory storage. Both of these synths sound virtually the same and are considered by many to sound better (punchier) than the popular follow up, the Juno-106. The Juno-6 and 60 are very rich sounding synthesizers and are great analog machines as long as you can overlook the absence of MIDI control. Of course nobody can deny that the wooden side panel look is a true sign of Vintage status! The Junos have been used by Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran, Enya, Sean Lennon, Sneaker Pimps, Vince Clarke of Erasure and Banco De Gaia.

one of the best sounding synthesizers ever. it grew on me. more kit came, the juno got neglected a bit...but when we got it out again, it floored us with it clear and yet complex tone, supertight bass and justs and lots of musicality.
check out some of the available vids on the net, it is just amazing.
The Juno 60 is a bit of a poor realtion btw ihmo, as they shelved, god knows why, the quite essential HPF for a shabby 4-step affair.

immensely useable synth. I prefer this to the Juno 60, where they sacrificed the HPF to a crippled 4-stage affair. god knows why.

Is this really bad photo editing? A shorter Juno 6. Look at where the logo is and the lack of screened lettering on the face of it. Also notice the "uno-6" on the back? Was this a Roland promo photo or Keyboard mag needing to save space? s1600/Roland_Juno6.jpg

Used by Dominic Glynn. One of his first uses of it was the 1986 arrangement of the Doctor Who theme (for which this was used to make the bassline)
