Re: So I bought a Jupiter 8 earlier this year....

There's no way to keep the LFO lights off (the LFO is constantly cycling), but with the modulation sliders/switches turned down/off, the LFO shouldn't have any effect on the filter cutoff. THAT'S good to know! Thanks everyone, I've managed to get the sudden jumps to stop by using the LFO in the VCF...

Re: So I bought a Jupiter 8 earlier this year....

Try turning the "LFO Mod" slider in the VCF section all the way down. Play with it to see if it changes the effect any. Also check the VCF Mod switch and slider near the bender. Thanks synthaholic, I've tried the LFO slider but I'll try the VCF Mod switch and slider too. So, it is possible to have ...

So I bought a Jupiter 8 earlier this year....

From a guy in Japan on ebay. Price was good and it arrived in good condition. I have found it hard to bond with it though and I suspect it might need a service. The notes all work and the sliders seem to, but the LFO doesn't appear to be able to be turned off entirely. This means that on a warm soun...

At this precise moment I'm going to say the Roland Juno 60. 8)


EDIT: Why?!

Because it's cheap(ish), sounds great, looks cool and it's easy to programme. 8)

DX7 mod/pitch wheel settings keep reverting to zero...

...so I just received the Mk I DX7 I bought off ebay today. I have wanted one for a great many years and I was excited to see what made this synth so incredible all that time ago. Of course I know that time has marched on and it's essentially a nostalgia kick for me. (I do realise that there's still...

I've had a MkII Rhodes since 1991 and I can tell you that no keyboard patch will ever make you play the same as you do on the real thing.

You can keep it really simple when the sound is so good! 8)

Thanks for the help! 8)

I think I must have a later one as the number is 513274...Feb '85?


I'm hoping this means I'll be spared replacing the voice chips for a while yet! :wink:

Determining the age of my Juno via serial number?

Hi, I just bought a Roland Juno 106 and I'm trying to find out the age of it. Is there somewhere that has any info on this, specifically by serial number?


Sorry if this has been done to death but "Serial" and "Number" as searches weren't very helpful! :lol:

Welcome to VSE! A Juno 106 sounds like a nice re-entry to synths and neatly bringing you full circle - it's the only one of the Junos that I haven't played. There's a cracking thread in here which might interest you, in which some of the older members shared their memories of playing 20 or so years...
