Juno 106 LFO Sync

Post by Distorted_Frequency » Sun Jul 03, 2011 7:55 pm

Can I tempo sync the LFO of the Juno 106 to another device? I have a P08 and TR 707, to the best of my knowlede i can use these at master tempo clocks, which I want to sync the 106 to. I looked in the manual and searched but did not find a yes/no answer.

Thanks,

Rob

I'm about 95% sure the answer is no. The 106 is a pretty basic machine.

I'm 99% sure it can't be done, unless there's some weird combination of button presses to do it.

The P08 can do 4 tempo synced LFOs per voice, that should be enough shouldn't it?

No.

I don't think there are any synths with MIDI syncable LFOs made before 1990. I wonder if it's possible to re-write the software on synths for that feature. I'd love to have it on the Xpander, along with other synths.

Thanks for the responses. The P08 does indeed have enough, but, I am useing the P08 for a string sound that I prefer for this application more and the Juno for a brass sound w/ LFO. I am playing w/ a band so I cant track.

I would imagine the P'08 would be better suited for brass with its 2 oscillators and multiple EGs so you have have an envelope for the quick pitch shift at the attack of the brass sound. To each their own, though.

If you're needing a MIDI clock syncable filter or amplitude/slicer effect, you might want to look into the Boss SL-20 Slicer and/or Moog MF-105M MuRF (Multi Resonant Filter).

does the 106 have a trigger in? if it were my 60, i would take the rimshot trigger out from the 707 and hook it up that way. otherwise, i'm not sure if you can get the 707 to send separate midi notes like the 909...my guess is no. may be a good idea to look into getting a cheap midi sequencer? the msq-100 works well, and more or less doubles as a midi to sync converter if you want to sync up any non midi tr's or the like. you could have the 106 on one channal, the po8 on another, and the 707 via sync
This looks like a psychotropic reaction. No wonder it's so popular...

From memory the LFO CV is generated digitally from the slave CPU on the module board, which has an embedded operating system ROM, so not something that would be in any way simple. It would be easier to build an analog LFO and install it inside the machine via the CV summing busses. Come to think of it, that would be a great mod, put a Curtis VCO in there and give to 106 some seriously wild modulation capability such as audio frequency modulation of the VCF's.

I agree that the P08 has a better brass sound. I am learning some Cars songs and on the track Heartbeat city the string sound is more complex than the "brass" he is using. Thus since i have limited keyboard choices i have to comprimise what will work.

No trigger in on this guy. I plan on getting some sort sequencer/sampler device in the future. Perhaps an ESX or if I can pull the funds together MachineDrum UW.
