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.

gaaaaah, I want one! You can catch glimpses of Mark Ronson using this in the Bang, bang, bang video. Nice.

I've had one of these for a while, would absolutely never sell it. Super rare for you guys to find one so cheap, some people just don't know what they've got!

I picked up a Juno 6 for £50 (yes, fifty pounds), all it needed was a new key from ebay for £2 - perfect working order

i just bought a near mint juno-6 for £270, pretty sure i got a ridiculously amazing bargain

the sound so rich!!! and the release is on each key rather than the last one in a sequence that you hold (if thats makes sense) which im sure is really rare with a lot of analogue synths???

I've found that with my Juno you can have both chorus buttons depressed to give a 3rd, really fat, chorus effect.
