What songs has the Juno-60 been used on?

Post by Analogue Crazy » Thu Mar 01, 2007 8:51 pm

I recognise its bright, warm sound of some 80's records. What songs was it used in?

Enya - Carribean Blue (that plucky sound). That's preset 35 on the 60 btw. Vince Clarke used the same sound on Yazoo's song 'Anyone'.

I am willing to bet that the seashore preset... 77, I think, was used on Limahl's hit "Neverending Story". Otherwise, it's all over most of Enya's stuff from the 80's and early 90's - most of the "Celts" album sees a lot of Juno.

The Cure are alleged to have used it, but I can't fathom as to where on regular albums.

Okay,I was listening to Head on the Door tonight and it sounds like it's all over there. Either that or some other kind of Roland, the sounds are very bell-like.

well, at least it's a nice 'cuddling song' :lol: no, really, i'm single now but me and my ex gf used to listen to that song a lot....both in and out of bed ;) but then she turned into a death metal chick (what the h**l) and we couldn't get along anymore...can't stand that shitty genre, it sucks so much a*s. (hope i'm not starting a flame war here, but i guess it's cool to say that on this board. anyhoo...)

That's my favourite Enya song too. Had no idea it was a Juno. I thought it was something a little more pricey shall we say. Better get myself a 60!

It's been used on almost all mine.... but only about 6 people have heard them them, that's all :)

Cabaret Voltaire (Richard Kirk, really) uses a 60 a lot. You can easily replicate many of the sounds from albums like The Conversation. I had a video of some gig they did where Kirk was sequencing the 60 over DCB. Not sure what from though.

As for the former, if you refer to AFOS's original version it can't have been a Juno-60 because the song in question was recorded in early 1982, nearly a year before that synth hit the market. Mike Score did indeed use a Juno-60 but not until '83.

Afaik, the synths used on AFOS's debut album were a Korg MS-10, Korg Delta as well as the then-new Roland Jupiter-8 (which was hired in for the album sessions).

Furthermore, I think the bass on PSB's "West End Girls" is a Minimoog although I do know that they also used a Juno-106 around that time.

I seem to remember Nik Kershaw using it live for "Wouldn't it be good". He was giving the modulation button a good going! :)

I love the LFO trig button on the 60! When I sold mine and started playing my JD-800 again I was trying to introduce modulation by pressing the buttons on the left side of the keyboard :lol:
Seriously, Roland has made some really good keyboards over the years, no doubt about it.
