18685

This unit is in good condition, all voice chips are working. The Juno-106 features an onboard analog stereo chorus effect, which is a fairly distinctive aspect of the instrument's sound. The Juno-106's chorus is based on a set of bucket brigade delay (BBD) lines similar to other Roland products of the time including guitar pedals. The Juno-106 also contains 128 internal memory slots for patch storage as well as surprisingly complete MIDI implementation - a rarity for any synthesizers of the time, let alone analogue ones. Compared to the 60 and 6 juno models the editing controls (sliders and buttons) on the synthesizer are capable of transmitting and receiving MIDI SysEx commands, allowing complete control and more advanced MIDI based modulation of the instrument via a sequencer or computer.   Furthermore, this synthesizer features polyphonic portamento, also rather rare for a 1984 analog instruments.   The Juno-106 is a unique synthesizer in a large part because it came at a time period when digital synthesizer components were just being introduced, MIDI being the most important, yet it featured the best of the analogue and digital worlds. The Juno-106 was one of the last vintage synthesizers to feature all of its controls as buttons and sliders on the faceplate which allowed for quick programming. The Juno-106 also featured DCOs with an analog signal path including VCFs. This allowed for perfectly tuned pitch with the warmth of analogue waveshaping and filters, along with the drive provided by the VCA. It is because of this balance of analogue and digital that there really is no other synth quite like the Juno-106 and it is still a staple in many studios today.
