“Up for sale, a 1980’s Roland Juno-106s analog synthesizer in exceptional condition and in good working order. Recently imported directly from Japan, the 106s is an uncommon variant which is identical circuit-wise to your garden variety 106, yet with the benefit of a pair of internal speakers. This synth has just been fully serviced and calibrated, wired for 120V operation via the original transformer taps. One of the most enduringly popular Roland synths of the ’80s, the Juno-106s has virtually the same synth engine as its predecessor the Juno 60, yet with extensive MIDI capability and over twice the patch memory storage (128 patches).
The Juno-106s is a six-voice polyphonic and programable analog synth with one digitally controlled oscillator (DCO) per voice. The Juno-106 uses built-in Chorus to fatten up its sound to dramatic effect too. The nature of the Juno’s DCO results in a sound that is stable, always in perfect tune, but still warm and analog. The Juno features an excellent 24dB/oct analog lowpass filter with plenty of resonance and self-oscillating possibilities as well as a non-resonant high pass filter. The programable pitch/mod bender can be assigned to control the DCO pitch, VCF cutoff, and LFO amount all at once or individually.
Cosmetically, this Roland synthesizer shows only a few minor scuffs on the bottom of the enclosure and sparingly little additional wear, with clean and virtually unfaded key caps, all original slider caps intact (save for three close equivalents above the pitch bender), and bright graphics. This synth is straightforward, powerful, and the perfect balance of thick analog warmth and modern digital convenience.”
