Roland Juno 60 Minerva Midi Mod Installation Problems

Post by ChuckFalcon » Mon Jan 19, 2015 10:51 pm

Hi everyone! I am the proud owner of a big fat Roland Juno 60 and I love it. I love it so much I wanted to give it midi. Like many others I ordered the Minerva Midi Mod. I started to install the Minerva yesterday and I ran into a some confusion and maybe someone could help who has already installed it.

OK, the installation directions are here:

I completed steps 1-20 with no problem and then step 21 is where I don't know what to do.

"21. Unplug the 4-pole connector. With a flat screwdriver force the metal plate of the second pin and take it out." I did that successfully (pic 1)!

"21.....At the now free place put the middle wire from Minerva." The only wires from the Minerva that aren't plugged into something already, is a 2-prong connector. What "middle wire" is he talking about, and do I insert that middle wire in the terminal that I just pulled the white one from (pics 2 and 3)?


"22. There is a 2-pole connector with one wire already plugged from Minerva. My 2-pole connector that came in my kit already had 2 wires in it, not 1 (pic 1). What's up with that? What do I do with it?

"22....Put the previously removed wire at the free place of the 2-pole connector." Does this mean the white wire that I pulled in step #21 ? If so, how do I fit it into a 2-prong terminal if both terminals are filled.

I have emailed Laszlo, but I haven't heard anything back yet. I am just very antsy and exited to use this baby. If anyone could shed some light on this situation I would be very grateful.
