Time machine: Roland Juno-60

May 21, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

A voyage into the heart of the Roland Juno-60 from the year 1982.
Exploration by Marko Ettlich

1 Osc per Voice + Sub osc
6 Voice Polyphonic
LFO – 1 LFO
Filter – analog lowpass with ADSR envelope
Arpeggiator
Chorus

It has been used by The Cure, Howard Jones, Flock of Seagulls, Eurythmics and more. Among the first in Roland’s amazing JUNO family! Six analog voices of polyphony and patch memory storage!! The JUNO-60 sounds great, however, like the JUNO-6 it lacks MIDI control. The JUNO-60 includes 56 patches of memory storage. The JUNO-60 is still popular due in part to opinions that it sounds better (punchier) than the JUNO-106. The JUNO-6 and 60 are very rich sounding synthesizers and are great analog machines as long as you can withstand the absence of MIDI control. The JSQ-60 sequencer is an external sequencer controller for the JUNO-60 and is usually worth acquiring. Of course nobody can deny that the wooden side panel look is a true sign of Vintage status!
