Up for sale, a 1980s Roland Juno-106 analog synthesizer in exceptional condition, complete with a padded case. Freshly serviced by Synapse Audio Systems, this Juno functions exactly as intended, outfitted with new voice chips and a few new sliders and buttons as needed, calibrated and loaded with the factory presets. The Juno 106 is one of the most enduringly popular Roland synths of the '80s, virtually the same synth engine as its predecessor the Juno 60, yet with extensive MIDI capability and over twice the patch memory storage (128 patches).
The Juno-106 is a six-voice polyphonic and programmable analog synth with one digitally controlled oscillator (DCO) per voice. The Juno-106 uses built-in Chorus to fatten up its sound to dramatic effect too. The nature of the Juno's DCO results in a sound that is stable, always in perfect tune, but still warm and analog. The Juno features an excellent 24dB/oct analog lowpass filter with plenty of resonance and self-oscillating possibilities as well as a non-resonant high pass filter. The programmable pitch/mod bender can be assigned to control the DCO pitch, VCF cutoff, and LFO amount all at once or individually.
All functions and features of this Juno operate as intended. This Juno was originally offered in the Japanese domestic market, wired for 100v and thoroughly tested at 120v USA power without issue. Cosmetic wear is limited to a few minor scuffs on the enclosure. The graphics are pristine, the key caps are bright white, and all original slider caps and knobs are intact.
A vintage padded case is included.
