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.

I've had my Juno for more than 3 Years Now and i havn't been happier with any poly-analog synth. God bless. I Love to slap the manual trigger like if it was a bass and i love the Apreg & Hold buttons. just get a CV/MIDI and enjoy.

I bought mine back in 1982 and still use it today. Number 6 ist the only Juno, where the high pass filter is freely adjustable and not limited to 4 Settings (0 - 3). I just love it.

I just got one myself recently, and it sounds amazing!!
The sounds are so rich and full, and my computer's software synths
can't come anywhere near it. If you can find one of these on eBay, or have a really good friend willing to part with this one, it is definitely worth getting!

I had one and wish I never sold it. Having kids really can put a damper on the synth collection.
