I want a Juno 106 RACK

Post by KennaOkoye » Mon Jan 09, 2012 1:45 am

Okay, I love the juno 106, im just not crazy about its mids and highs, I like that on the 60 better. But what the 60 doesnt seem to have is that deep sub bass on low notes. Did roland make anything like a 106 that I can synthesize to get the same type of lows like on the 106? and also behaves the same? or maybe a cheaper board that doesnt take up as much room lol, please let me know thanks :)

It defaults in "quartet" mode where 2 voices are assigned to "melody" and 4 voices are assigned to "chord", but you can chain the 2 sections together for one 6 voice polyphonic part.

There are 100 preset sounds that can be edited via SysEx or the front panel (but is very cumbersome), but user sounds cannot be saved.

Here is a demo I made about a year ago (quartet mode):

if only the mks-7 was a little easier to operate - that and a x0xb0x would be all i'd ever need!

I'm pretty sure it was them - they rack all sorts of stuff. Maybe give them a call.

But in lieu of that, just get an mks-50! :)
