Roland Alpha Juno 1

aj1 “Roland Alpha Juno 1 Vintage Polyphonic Analog Synthesizer. the classic rave synth!
Awesome sounding analog polysynth by Roland, from 1985/86. Great for lush, deep pads and bouncy bass lines, as well as the classic Hoover rave sound.

in fairly good condition for its age and full working order. there are some signs of cosmetic wear/use as you’d expect with a 30+ year old item, but nothing that affects its use. the outputs on the back can be a little temperamental at times and sometimes need to be wiggled around a bit to get a clear signal. but you can buy replacement output parts on ebay if you really want for around £20 so not that much of a problem. I haven’t bothered as it’s never been a big problem for me.

it comes with its power lead and printed owner’s manual.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

alpha juno2 “Roland Alpha Juno 2 Analog Vintage Synthesizer Keyboard WORKING

This one is in great condition. 100% functional and looks good cosmetically – there are some scratches, dents, etc. (please see photos)

I used it for analog pads – warm and thick like you would expect. Of course it has the infamous ‘hoover’ rave sound it’s known for. All keys, buttons, etc. work but it IS a vintage item and not new.

Action includes keyboard and power cord.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

alphajuno1“This synth is in near-perfect condition, only faint signs of age on the bottom. Every key and button and function works flawlessly. Stored under dust cover in smoke-free home studio. I’ve been recording with this synth for over a year and it’s never let me down. Comes with original box and power cable.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Roland Alpha Juno 2

alphajuno2 ” This is a used Roland Alpha Juno 2. I have owned it since the 90’s when I purchased it through a Recycler ad, if you remember those. The battery has been replaced with a new battery and battery holder, so the next replacement won’t involve soldering. Everything works that I’ve tested including pitch/mod control and chorus with one exception, the keyboard does not send aftertouch, which is true for most Alpha Juno’s now, and was not very usable on any Alpha Juno when it did work. This is a gem and fun to play, I’m clearing it out to make more space.

Every key works, and velocity works. See close up photos for condition which includes some minor scratches, common for a synth of this age.

This is also the synth know for the ‘hoover’ sound used in songs by The Prodigy’s Charly and Human Resource’s Dominator.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Roland Alpha Juno 2

roland alpha juno 2 ” I’ve had this synth for about 1 year. Works great and sounds great! Smoke-free and pet-free home studio. Power cord is included.

Operation notes:

The volume fader causes audio issues (crackling, left or right output drops), that I was unable to fix by simple dusting. It is easy to find a spot that maintains stereo, and leave it there.
All the keys are properly responsive. I cleaned all the contacts initially because two keys had no velocity control.
The battery (still original) shows no signs of leaking.
Aftertouch doesn’t seem to work, which is common with this model.
Roland factory presets are loaded.

Cosmetic notes:

Melted spot on the edge next to the joystick. See photo.
Clear plastic layer over lcd has a small crack and a few scratches, but screen visibility is not affected. See photo.
At the rear corner, the plastic top is cracked and the metal base is bent. See photos.
Interior is dust-free, and keys are gunk-free.
I failed to note the order of keys when cleaning, so what should be an imperceptible color gradient from the ends to the center is now a slightly noticeable shuffling of white and off-white.
There are a couple of screws missing, but everything feels secure (case and internals).” Click here to visit listing on eBay

alpha juno 1 “The only button that does not work is the Oct Transpose – though it’s not an issue because you can use the key transpose to step up or down one note at a time. (up to 12 in each direction) It’s got plenty of the normal scratch and dents of a keyboard this age, if you look really close in the picture of the keys you will see a small melt mark on one of the black keys. Other than that it’s in good shape. Includes the power cord.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Roland Alpha Juno

usedalpah “The Alpha Juno is a great sounding Juno type synth DCO digitally controlled oscillators, LFO, bend, ENV, pulse, waveforms, noise, PW/PWM, high pass filter, VCF (filter) with freq/env/res/LFO/kybd, VCA envelope, chorus, and more. The PG-300 synthesizer programmer gives you traditional slider control of each parameter for much easier and faster editing. Other nice touches include better MIDI implementation than previous Roland synths, 64 presets and 64 user patches, a nice LCD display, an LFO capable of a very slow rate for some cool sweeping effects, and a great bass sound (especially nice for acid basslines) and noise effects! It also has chord memory which is perfect for rave & techno, portamento and keyboard transposing. The Juno 1 come with original case” Click here to visit listing on eBay

alpha-juno1 “Roland Alpha Juno-1 synthesizer. Your one-stop shop for all the 80s pad sounds you could ever want.

Works beautifully – all keys and buttons, modulator lever, alpha wheel, et.al. are functional. Factory presets plus user presets that were there when I bought it – I’ve never programmed on it.

It has an ugly scrape on the left end of the keyboard, seen in the second photo. It was there when I bought it over fifteen years ago. Whatever happened there, it has no effect on the functionality of anything. Slap a Human League sticker over it if it bothers you.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Roland Alpha Juno 1

used alpha juno 1 “Used original vintage 1980’s Roland synthesizer with no repairs or replacements.

All keys tested and in proper working order with some minor scratches. Has some wear on push controls (see pic) but all work. Voices, menu and display working. Powers up and sounds great. Board has a few minor scratches and a small crack around a rear screw mount (see pic) which seems to be common.

2 known issues: the 1/4 inch headphone jack creates static/pops/fade-out in the headphones. 2. Pitch bender lever creates slight static popping sound in headphones/speaker when used, like the lever has a loose connection.

No manual, box or power cord included. This is an old board, so there may be issues that I am unaware of. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

The synthesizer was purchased when manufactured in 1986 and has has been with the second owner for the past 20 years. It is in very good condition, cosmetically, mechanically and electronically. Its 30 years show in a couple of ways:

– there are a few scratches on the underside (see photos)
– three keys (lower E, F and F sharp) work mechanically but do not trigger sound ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

alphajuno1 “Finally selling my AJ1, it’s not pretty :stickers and sharpie. Marks from use, a couple keys that are scarred from somthing. Don’t know, I’m not the orginal owner. Volume slider is a little scratchy so it could use some TLC. Other than the scratchy slider and a non working mod wheel it’s in pretty good working order. All sounds are there, midi is fine, keys all work. Definitely a fixer upper but not bad at all for a 30 somthing analog polysynth. Happy bidding.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

alpha juno 1 “Roland Alpha Juno 1 in great condition for its age. The synth has a few scuffs and scratches but is in great condition otherwise. All knobs,buttons, and keys function and it sounds great. The only issue is the mono output jack is intermittent and does not always work. I used the headphone jack and it works perfectly.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

rolandalphajuno1 “Up for bid is a Roland Alpha Juno 1 Vintage 80’s Analog Synthesizer Keyboard! This is a very popular and portable synth (keyboard version of MKS-50) with a huge user base, heard on countless pop and dance tracks since the mid-80’s. The bass and pad sounds alone are worth the price of admission.

This one is in excellent condition overall with only a little typical minor wear here and there from use. Much better than you’d expect from a 30 year old keyboard. It works perfectly (all voices) and comes with the power cable. The manual is available online.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

a2 “Vintage Roland alpha Juno 2 synthesizer with original manual, patch chart and power lead and will be sent in the original shipping box, (one owner from new). This keyboard has been used in a studio only, never gigged, and is in excellent condition. It comes complete with an M-64C expansion cartridge for additional sound storage, which was an after-market purchase. The keyboard is semi-weighted, with pressure aftertouch. In addition to stereo outputs, the back panel features MIDI In-Out-Thru sockets and a 1/4″ headphone socket. It’s solidly made with a metal chassis and weighs 10kg, hence the cost for shipping.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

alphajuno 1” Here is a killer Roland Juno 1 analog synth with digital control. It’s pretty hammered, but works well. All functions work and it sounds excellent. One key is sorta off it’s mount or something. It will stick a bit and drag the sharp down with it. I imagine it would be fairly simple to replace, seems like a mechanical fix, rather than electronic. All other soft buttons and display, outputs and such, all seem to work to the best of my knowledge. Comes with power cord.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Fantastic looking classic instrument, great sound, and functions perfectly.

In excellent condition except for small marks as seen in pics.

All photos taken today, 09/06/2015.

Will not include power cable in case the plug damages the synthesizer in transit. It is just a standard iec/kettle cable.”

alphajuno2 “You are bidding on a vintage Roland Alpha Juno 2 , 61-key, synthesizer. This is a digital/analog synth that has full MIDI implementation. That means it can control other keyboards and synth modules. You can also record MIDI and audio on your home PC-based recording system with the appropriate interface. The keys on the alpha juno 2 are velocity sensitive, so by changing how you press or hit the ket will modify the sound or volume. This one-owner keyboard was located in a non-smoking, air-conditioned home in the family room. The pitch-bend control was sluggish, so it was dissasembled, cleaned, lubricated and reassembled and works like new. Also the EL backlight panel was replaced in the LCD display for those late night jam sessions. The key contacts were cleaned as well. It was given an overall cleaning as well. Everything is 100% functional. I made a short video below, which shows all the keys and controls working. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay
