ROLAND JUNO 60 w/ MIDI


via this auction

"Having previously owned a Juno 106, I can confirm that this Juno 60 sounds way better, it's fatter and warmer, great for Basses, Leads and string sounds. The Juno 60 also has an arpeggiator which the 106 lacks. The wood side panels also make the 60 look way more classy.

CONDITION: Please note there are a few knocks and scratches to the wooden sides and bottom, however the face plate, controls and keys are all in very good condition, please see my photographs for cosmetic damage, for a synth of its age it is in very good condition and plays like a dream.

Midi Retro fit: You will notice from the photos the addition of MIDI IN,THRU, OUT, a red button on the right of the face plate and ticker tape added above some of the keys. This is all part of the MIDI retro fit. I have never seen any other Juno 60 with this so I consider this to be a very rare find. This is extremely cool as it enables playing the Juno from a modern midi sequencer like Cubase/Ableton/FL Studio etc.

I have recently had it serviced (2018), the service man told me that the MIDI retrofit looks like a Groove Electronics kit, it was already fitted when I bought it back in the 90's so I cannot confirm this."
