Re: That everpresent 80s Juno pad

Thanks, I very much appreciate the info./tutorial on it. The best thing about learning synthesis is that there is always something new to discover. Since posting this thread I've been rifling youtube and it really is amazing how much this sound or something very close to it was and still is used.

Re: That everpresent 80s Juno pad

Thanks for posing this question, Fredthehound, and thank you, Alex E., for posting that Enya song. (Probably hadn't heard that since I was in grad school.) Even though it was the wrong sound, I learned a couple of things about my own Juno 6 from trying to copy it. Now that Hideaway got me set strai...

Re: That everpresent 80s Juno pad

Thank you muchly. For some reason I always thought of it as a "juno" sound. maybe it's just a mental association thing in my own mind. To be honest I can't tell you why that is but every time I hear it a Juno springs to mind. Probably saw a juno do it in a video once and it just 'locked' as being th...

Re: That everpresent 80s Juno pad

OK here's another example. This is the more padlike/chorded use. It's at the starying point of this video/the part sitting behind the vocals. Around the youtube 34 second mark.

Re: That everpresent 80s Juno pad

Like the first 40 seconds of this? Quintessential Juno 60 pad right there. Nothing quite like it. Nope. the one I am thinking, like in the video I posted is almost a polykey. To my ears its brassy with a really quick initial pitch to the transient. I call it brassy and padlike but I could understan...

Re: That everpresent 80s Juno pad

The video begins right where the sound comes in. In this particular song it's being used as the main melody line but I often hear it chorded, rather than individual notes and used in a more padlike manner.

Re: That everpresent 80s Juno pad

You're going to need to post a sample of the sound in action. The Juno does indeed have a few preset brass and pad patches, but so did dozens of other synthesizers in the 80's. What usually makes the Juno-60 identifiable in a track is its chorus. It's basically this https://www.youtube.com/watch?fe...

That everpresent 80s Juno pad

Hi all, I realize this is a newb/dumb sorta question but I am looking for info on that Juno brassy pad that was in pretty much every bad 80s movie, mainstream or p**n. The one that just screams 'this is a cheap made for TV movie you saw and heard 1000 times before". As I don't have a Juno I'm wonder...

Re: The dude who made up his own Miami Vice-Like Music

Revive! Anyone know why MPV pulled these? Pretty elaborate effort given that he also edited all his posts. Thankful for the archiving by his fans. There were a few posts on the various synthwave sites that he was unsatisfied with his music and just pulled it all out of frustration. Then he did a co...

Probably Multipac if my memory serves.

Has lots of that syule and i love it as well. It is amazing what most of these guys, just kids in the 80s, accomplish. Many grasp the feel of the time extremely well.

Re: Why do you use the Synthesizer you use most?

For me it's my Integra 7. I own it and a Yami Tx81Z in hardware. I love the I7 because it's versatile and I enjoy the sounds I get out of it.

If I had the classics, I still think it would find a place because it offers so much versatility.
