1980s Roland Juno-106 Vintage Analog Synthesizer Fully Serviced w/ MIDI

via this auction

"1980's Roland Juno-106 analog synthesizer in exceptional condition and in good working order. Recently imported directly from Japan, this synth has just been fully serviced and calibrated, fitted with an IEC power receptacle and wired for 120V. One of the most enduringly popular Roland synths of the '80s, the Juno-106 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-106 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 light wear on the back and bottom of the enclosure, with clean and virtually unfaded key caps, all original slider caps intact, and bright graphics. This synth is straightforward, powerful, and the perfect balance of thick analog warmth and modern digital convenience."
