Juno 60 stiff sliders

I have two Juno 60 which one appears to have stiffer sliders than the other, anyone know of a way to loosen and clean them up safely? I heard of using Deoxit F5 faderlube to loosen the sliders by spraying directly to lubricate them. Is this any good of a method? To clean them, you cannot go wrong wi...

Unresponsive LFO Trig button and patch buttons on Juno 60

Hello everyone, I have a Juno 60 which has an unresponsive LFO Trig button, does anyone know how to fix it and restore contact to it again? I heard it is just cleaning the rubber where it makes contact? Feel free to correct me. Anyone know how to fix non working patch buttons (Not the hold and arpeg...

Replacing Juno 60 toggle switch and slider gasket felt

Hello everyone, just got a Juno 60 in good condition though needs a little cleaning up. Only things to note are: 1. Octave transpose switch is broken off, any pointers on replacing it? I was thinking of using a finer tip soldering iron with a desoldering tool. 2. The black felt gaskets around the sl...

Recommendation for audio interface with multiple synths.

I am curious what audio interface most of you guys use for your synths? I am thinking of getting an audio interface and was wondering what you'd recommend? I am looking for an interface that has great sound quality with atleast 8 inputs (mic inputs don't matter to much). Leaning a lot towards the si...

Synth memory glitches? (Not dead battery)

One day I turned on my Juno 106 and came across all the patches sounding weird and different to the ones I saved. I could notice some of the sound of the one I saved but sometimes the attack was really long or short or the LFO really intense on it. The battery is still good and the weird patches are...

Re: Still possible to get a Juno 60 for a good deal?

Thanks for the input guys; though I do have a few polysynths, I will always be on the lookout for a Juno 60 for a great price if one ever comes. Maybe I should get into more monosynths and VCO based synths. 400-500 in Japan? I'm not sure I believe that at first. Where do you find them for those pric...

Still possible to get a Juno 60 for a good deal?

Hey guys, I was wondering if in today it is still possible to get a Juno 60 for a good price ($1200 or less) and has anyone had any luck? Where would you look for one for a good price?

Thanks,

Re: What's a good price for a Sequential Circuits Drumtraks?

It's a cool vintage drum machine which has your 80's sample drum sounds, checking around I think I wouldn't pay over $500-600 for one in good condition. But at the rate of increasing prices for vintage gear that might not be the most realistic. It has some cool features like tuning every drum but do...

Re: Newbie with question

Check out the cheaper analog synths by Korg, like the Monologue or Minilogue if you want 4 note polyphony. You seem pretty set on the sub phatty, so just get it, it tends to keep it's value if you end up ditching it. I second that, the Minilogue is a great starter synth because it has a good analog...

Re: P Lion's synth?

For Happy Children I would have to say Jupiter 8 because that's the synth that he is playing in the video? But I could almost say Juno 106 since the brass line sounds just like factory patch A11 with a slightly longer attack. And factory patch A75 sounds just like the bell sound and plays harmonies ...

Re: Digital Rackmount Synth with Analog Sound/Modelling?

Not sure if this would help but the 1990's Kurzweil K-Series (K2000, K2500, K2600) rackmount models had a great selection of digital sounds and great reproductions of classic analog synth sounds, though is a little harder to understand the programming (They use VAST). I own the K2000 and think it is...

What's a good price for a Sequential Circuits Drumtraks?

Hello, I recently found some interest in the Sequential Circuits Drumtraks and was wondering what would be a reasonable price for one as of now? Are these drum machines worth owning? How do they compare to other drum machines such as the Linndrum, DMX, etc?

Thanks

Re: Analog synths without PWM: Why?

From what I know all the JX series synths are both two oscillators but have no PWM, same with the Poly800 also two oscillator. I know the Jupiter 8, Prophet 5, and OB series of synths all have PWM.

Analog synths without PWM: Why?

Some analog synths were made without PWM such as Roland JX-3P, JX-8P, Korg Poly 800, DW-8000 and 6000 (Hybrids). But Why?
