1980s Roland Alpha Juno SN 763506

via this auction

"1980's Roland Juno Alpha-1 vintage analog synthesizer in near mint condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original manual. The Alpha Juno is a worthy addition to the Juno family, with the sliders and buttons of previous iterations replaced by membrane buttons and the Alpha Dial, which is used to edit and browse through the extensive selection of parameters. Features include 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. A PG-300 synthesizer programmer (not included) is compatible with the Alpha-1, giving the user traditional slider control of each parameter for faster editing.

Other touches include better MIDI implementation than previous Roland synths, 64 presets and 64 user patches, LCD display, an LFO capable of a very slow rate for some cool sweeping effects, and a great bass sound and noise effects! It also has chord memory, portamento, and keyboard transposing. All functions work as intended, and the keyboard shows sparingly little cosmetic wear."
