Roland Alpha Juno 2

“For sale here is the oft forgotten and thus very affordable, yet extremely rich and lush Alpha Juno 2. I will just say this machine has beautiful analog filters that I love. Vintage Synth Explorer gives it an “Excellent Rating”. This particular synth has very minimal visible wear or noticeable use as you can see in the pictures. It plays beautifully with full functionality. The LCD is very visible (usually means lows hours) and everything functions wonderfully. Included in this package is the Roland PG-300 controller which gives a VCR slider for every parameter in the synth. The PG-300 has a small dent near the logo as visible in the picture and some tape goo from the previous owner. I did want to use a chemical solution in case it damaged the PG-300 to get the goo off – but I’m sure it will come off very easily. Does not affect function at all. ” Click here to search for synths on eBay

Roland Alpha Juno 1 with Roland PG-300

“Two pieces of gear literally made for eachother; this synth with this rare controller together are such a powerful combo with so much possibility.

PG-300 Programmer (For Alpha Juno 1, 2, and MKS-50):

Allows you to control all the synth’s parameters at your fingertips through a MIDI hookup (instead of with the dreaded wheel/screen display). Perfect working condition. Hard to find.

Alpha Juno 1 Analog Polyphonic Synthesizer:

Synth works perfectly (including the display and controls), however two cosmetic issues: 1 stuck middle c key, and the pitch bender knob doesn’t work (not octane changer, those are fine). This has been irrelevant to both me and the previous owner, as controlling it by MIDI gives you access to aftertouch (velocity sensitivity)–the built-in-keyboard lacks this crucial feature. I bought it this way and enjoyed it for years because it truly is a non-issue issue if you are recording.

Includes two powercords and a midi cable to connect them. Can throw in another MIDI cable to connect to your keyboard if that would be helpful for you. ” Click here to search for synths on eBay

Roland Alpha Juno 1

“Roland Alpha Juno 1 Programmable Polyphonic Synthesiser, comes with original owners manual from 1985 and a power lead… Classic 1980’s analog synth made in Japan, used in many well known records including the Prodigy ‘Charly’ and Joey Beltram’s ‘Mentasm’Nice analog warm fat sound, its capable of producing warm pads and aggressive lead tones.Everything works fine as it should, the only small aesthetic things I would say are: > ‘IN’ is written in pen next to the midi input (photographed) > The volume fader is missing a little clip on knob (that would be easily replaced), I’ve not used one the whole time I’ve had it as the fader still works properly and is easily usable as it is (also photographed). The original manual and a power cable are included.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

Roland Alpha Juno 2

“Includes power cable. Synth is in great shape! All the keys work, after touch works, outputs work and are clean. I recently serviced it. The led backlight on the display does not light up but I am not sure if it ever did. You can still read all text and parameters though. It has some minor cosmetic scratches as to be expected of a synth this age. There is one key that has a small chip. Some keys are whiter than others (most likely they were replaced at some point).” Click here to search for synths on eBay

Roland Alpha Juno 1

“Excellent condition Alpha Juno 1 serviced by me.

In addition to a thorough cleaning (including the keybed), I’ve swapped the stock solder-to-board 3v battery with a battery holder that allows for a user installable CR2032.

I’ve gone ahead and added a new battery for the next owner. All ROM sounds are restored and in memory. User banks are blank.

In addition to the above, and most important, I’ve replaced the backlight which as you can see is bright blue. A quick Google search will reveal the pain of replacing the often failing screens in AJ1s (that’s why so many are sold unserviced).

Finally, I’ve calibrated the unit per the Roland service manual.

The unit sounds fantastic. Very warm. It has that classic BBD chorus. Super light, and portable, too, with 49 keys”

“Here is a Roland JUNO-1 Keyboard Synthesizer. We are offering this
As Is. We got this from the Original Owner who stated that this did work well
the last time it was played. Her and her daughter tried vigorously to find the
Power Cord but could not locate it. The previous owner stated that the “burn
spot” is from a stage lamp that fell over during a performance. This does
appear to be in Good Condition and it does show signs of use. We are
offering this As Is for Parts, Repair or Restoration”

“Synth plays and works.

***It has a intermittent crackling chorus chip***

When the chorus is ON it sometimes makes a crackling sound. It tends to do it more often than not. I suspect it is one of the chorus chips as these tend to go bad as these synths age. Maybe you have the ability to diagnose and fix it?

There is a simple work around however. Simply turn off the chorus in the menu and the intermittent crackling goes away. There is no dedicated chorus switch for synth so you have to access the menu to turn it off. Many of the preset patches use the chorus so be aware of that. You can create user patches that do not have chorus selected so you don’t have to turn off the chorus every time a new patch is selected.

Its not super loud and would be fine for live playing but would not be good for studio recording. I have always turned off the chorus to avoid the problem. And sometimes it doesn’t make the crackling sound for awhile and when it starts up again I turn off the chorus. Unfortunately its unpredictable.

Everything else on the synth is fine and plays well. It is in fair cosmetic condition. It has some cracks in the back of the cover that doesn’t effect it(see pics). The volume fader is missing the cap (see pics.

I realize this synth has an issue so I’m going to take off about $125 to compensate for that. If the chorus problem was fixed this synth could bring in 400-450.

I have owned this keyboard for 25+ yrs and taken good care of it in my studio. It’s great for pads and bass. The portamento is interesting on this synth and sounds unique to other synths I’ve owned.
