Problem with my juno-106

Post by cpt_coconut » Fri Jan 08, 2016 11:52 am

Hey guys ! since im on mobile phone without any possibility to use a computer in quite some time i'll simply copy a post i wrote on reddit r/synth which probably got completely ignored. here's the post :

"So i got that juno-106 for recording purposes,i turn it on ,try some presets,mess with the sliders and i think i got a hang of it and then i realized something's wrong ... When i click the keys continuously it feels like i have some sort of a tremolo effect going on . The signal is being killed in equal periods of time. It doesn't happen whenever i hold the keys though. I tried to find a solution in the instruction ,online and wherever possible but couldn't find a damn thing . I don't think it's broken since it really feels like there's some tremolo or some other s**t going on so it must be in the settings . I never get too technical about the stuff i buy so i have no idea what's going on and how to fix it so that's why I'm posting here.
here's how it looks and sounds .
Hope you guys can help me ,i really wanna get it to work and get to work !"

Would be great to here some advice since i really wanna make music with it and i simply can't ...

EDIT:ofc i meant juno-106 ...

You have one voice chip out. Notice that it happens every 6th note is dropped. As you trigger a single key, the CPU rotates the chip being used. One of the 6 is failed / failing.

Lots of threads on chip replacement with new clones like Analog Renaissance, or by stripping the epoxy covering with acetone and re-soldering the pins.

Here's a nice test procedure write-up to help you identify the chip:
