The Roland Juno-60 is a popular 61-key polyphonic synthesizer introduced by Roland Corporation in 1982 as a successor to the Juno-6, which had been on the market for less than a year. Like its predecessor, the Juno-60 is essentially an analog synthesizer with digitally controlled oscillators.

Roland was losing market share with the Juno-6 in competition against the Korg Polysix. Related in features and price-class, the Polysix featured programmable patch memory, which the Juno-6 lacked. Programmability and external control (via Roland’s proprietary Digital Communications Bus (DCB)) were added to the Juno-6, which was then re-introduced as the Juno-60 (which sonically and architecturally did not change notably from its predecessor).

In 1984 the Juno-60 was replaced by the Juno-106, a similar instrument with further incremental changes.
