Re: It's time for another Analog Bass Synth

While not strictly a bass synth, and not true analog (though for the life of me I'd never know it by hearing it), I have been getting absolutely stunning bass synth sounds from my Roland SYSTEM-1. My role in my band is 90% comprised of concocting rich, full bass sounds - and the SYSTEM-1 is more and...

Re: (Solved) MIDI to USB cables

I saw these and was curious about them!

The only MIDI controller I currently have only puts out USB signal, and I need a controller for the Chip Maestro for Nintendo NES. This was a helpful post and kept me from buying something that wouldn't have even been useful. Thank you! :)

Re: Roland Boutique

:agree: Nice review. To be fair on the downsides though, got to remember that the original vintage versions definitely had their quirks and problems. I mean thinking about it, the 106 voice chips die, the Jupiter 8 initially had tuning issues and the 3P always suffered from its stripped down interf...

Re: Roland Boutique

There exists cables with a 1/4 jack at one end and minijack on the other end. You don't need goofy converters if you get one of those. I use several of those for my modular system to connect with other stuff. So far I have only been able to locate dinky small-gauge 1/4" to mini cables that are not ...

Re: Songs with Casio or Yamaha keyboards?

https://youtu.be/cxRosXoDFE0 Tokyo Police Club's "Citizens of Tomorrow" contains some classic Casio-chord action on the verses. The "Lesson in Crime" album in particular sounded like it had quite a bit of Casio on it - their keyboard player uses a Casiotone 405 pretty regularly, if I remember corre...

Re: Roland Boutique

Bought my JU-06 with the K25M on preorder, been fiddling with it for about two weeks now. While I have always been more of a fan of the JUNO 6/60 sound, the 106 is an excellent instrument, and I could not resist the temptation to have a pint-sized JUNO that I can carry around in a laptop case. :) Th...

Re: Dead Roland JUNO-6

My opinion: the Juno 6 is worth a lot these days, upwards of €800 now if I'm not mistaken? If you're not experienced, it's worth the investment to send it to a tech. Alternatively, buy "Electronics for Dummies" (it's actually pretty good for beginners to learn from) and do some of the projects in t...

I did manage to find a copy of the service manual, and I just bought a cheap meter a while back - but... I'm not really sure what to check. Or where. I really am quite inexperienced at this. :oops:

Re: Roland RS-09 Popping Sound when playing keys

I've read threads to this effect before, and one thing I have seen suggested repeatedly is trying to adjust the envelope timing. I have no experience with the RS-09, but my experience with old Roland gear suggests there may very well be an internal trimpot especially for this purpose - if you tweak ...

Dead Roland JUNO-6

Hey all! New to the forum, I'll try my best to observe the etiquette! :) I'm here on account of a Roland JUNO-6 that has made it's way to me. It is in really excellent cosmetic condition, it is complete with no missing parts, and everything looks to be in great shape. But functionally - something is...
