Roland Juno 106 - Patches Gone Awry!

Post by elsongs » Thu Mar 14, 2019 9:16 am

I turned on my Juno 106 for the first time in a few months and noticed that my patches sound odd - as if some gremlin came and changed the slider settings of most of the patches and re-saved them. So a string sound would have white noise, or a pad would have an extreme level of LFO pitch modulation.

Does this mean it's time to replace the battery of my 106? I've owned this one since 2006 and might have changed it once not long after I bought it. Or is it the sign of a deeper problem?


UPDATE: It was the battery. I unsoldered the BR2325 and soldered in a CR2043 holder and slipped in a battery. Re-loaded my patch banks and I'm good to go now!
