Taking a closer look on the Roland Juno 6 synth
“The Juno 6/60 is a popular synth that is the subject of a lot of discussion, and much of it is negative. I am a huge fan of the Juno 6/60 and think it gets and unfair amount of criticism, primarily behind the veil of the internet. This demo showcases its amazing sound and some of it’s capabilities.”
Below is the link to the original uncompressed demo:
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!
