Busted! :oops:

But the 60 really does sound nice all by itself too.

I've posted that before and I think I explained that I had a 101 on it, but that would be impressive to be able to pick out!

The drums are just some 808 samples. Glad you liked it.

Hey thanks!

btw, it's a 106 juno in there ;-)

and about the thickness and other "adv." of 6/60.

It much more depends on whether your playing it on it's own or mixing/blending with other stuff. I tend to find that the more analog a synth is, the harder it is to fix in the mix. So, the 106 just flows with everything without much tweaking, maybe only some equing. lovin it

Some old demo i've been making entirely on a Juno 60 using overdub method. Every sound here, including drums, originates from Juno 60 (midi-ed via dcb converter). Hope this demo should give you idea on how Juno 60 can (or can't) sound:

The Juno-60 seems wonderful. Sounds warmer than my 106 and has an arpeggiator, patch memory and fat brass. I might go looking for one pretty soon. Any ones for sale or other advice?

well there you go. :)
thats a cool demo Dan solaris 8)
I especially dig the high hat sound you got there. You could make all those parts longer and make a Juno-60 epic!

This is thread is very inspiring. Hooray for Junos!

Thx monolith. I love Junos too. My love started when i heard this song:



Starting at 00:51 you should spot the Juno 60 dark pad... kills me each time i hear it. (also spot the 2 OP bass made on some FM synth - probably the DX-7 - although it is no listed on the vinyl)

Very cool demo ! :wink:

I think it gives a good overview about what the Juno serie has in the "bag".

No comparison with the Polysix...it's much more clean ! And the envelopes are faster !

Thanks for the demo.
It is much easier to be a good equipment purchaser than to be a great musician.

Am I the only one who likes the Juno 106 more than the 60/6s?

Just ordered the Phalangius album... Comes to $16.91 for those in the US.

BTW - As a non Juno owner I'm loving all the sound files you guys are posting of your Juno's. Out of the three - 6, 60, 106.. which would you guys recommend for my first?

OK. This is called "Geas" and is from a record I made a couple of years ago, Unearthed Arcana.

http://www.drumbeater.com/~kelly/GUL-Geas.mp3

The song consists of four different layers, all Roland HS-60. That's the Juno 106 with built-in speakers.

1. Main percussive riff through Line 6 Echo Park
2. Pad way down in the mix. LFO on the filter rrreeeeaaaalllll ssssllllloooowwwwww.
3. Envelope lead through Alesis Picoverb
4. Second pad dry.

Listen with headphones if you can. Makes me wish mine hadn't kept tossing voice cards on me. I have an Alpha Juno now but I miss the HS-60. Maybe I'll get a Juno-60 someday.

EDIT: Fixed the link for the song. My bad.[/url]
