Roland Alpha Juno 1 Project Machine

“**Please note this synth has a few problems**

I have had the Juno 1 for best part of 25 years. It is showing some wear and issues are

two keys are not working, one of the keys also does not spring back as it should. The octave up and down buttons do not work and the volume slider is scratchy when being used (its stable once set)

The synth itself plays fine. All the soft touch buttons work and screen is good. Personally I have never had it repaired and use it as a MIDI sound module to get all those classic Alpha Juno sounds, if you did want to repair it the issues seem to be mechanical rather than anything else, I would expect them to be cleaning of contacts but I am no expert. ”

Roland Alpha Juno 1

“Roland Alpha Juno 1 Analog Polyphonic Synthesizer – 80’s Vintage – E120. Condition is Seller refurbished.
Ive cleaned it all up, and the sound is as fresh as it was back in 87. The only flaw in this amazing retro synth is , when i found it and purchased it, it didnt work. I traced the problem eventually to a bad power cable, i looked but was unable to find a proper power cable for it, so i removed the bad one, and soldered in a new power cable. It works perfectly now, amd sounds fantastic. I would keep it, but im already overloaded with equipment in my studio, and just would not be able to give this lovely lady the attention she deserves. Buy it today, ill ship it out to you as fast as i can. Run your fingers across her ivory, and if you play her just so, I swear You can still feel , and hear echoes from the 80s. Give this lady another chance to sing again, you wont be dissapointed!” Click here to search for synths on eBay

Roland Alpha Juno 1 with Roland PG-300 Controller

“Vintage Roland Juno 1 with PG-300 and AB-3 carrying case for sale.
Very rare to find this combo together being sold!

Synth as been well loved throughout the years, but still in decent condition for it’s age. Screen is still bright and synth still functions as it should. Seller disclosure: Please keep these in mind when purchasing. Volume pot could use a good cleaning and chorus effect seems to be at it’s highest potential at full volume. I would use the PG-300 to handle of of the synth’s controls and none of those issues would affect the play-ability of the instrument. PG-300 works accordingly however it is missing a slider cap. AB-3 has a few scoffs but otherwise in good condition.

Synth plays like a dream and has some excellent patches! These will be at Juno 60/106 prices in the next year or two! Don’t miss out!” Click here to search for synths on eBay

Roland Alpha Juno 1

“This Roland Alpha 1 is in great working condition. All membrane buttons, wheels and switches work as expected. The keys all still play great and have good response. There are some minor scratches (mostly on the bottom) due to being 35 years old but nothing major.

I’ve really enjoyed this synth and primarily bought it because I didn’t want to pay the extremely high prices the other Juno models are going for these days. It does a great job of producing those lush 80’s pads along with a multitude of other patches. I really enjoyed this one, but alas I must make room for more gear and I’m just not using this as much as I’d like. Always used in a smoke free studio, gigged lightly.”

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”
