The Juno-106 is an analog synthesizer released by Roland in 1984. It is 6 voice polyphonic and MIDI compatible. It has an onboard memory capable of storing 128 patches, and it has plenty of sliders, knobs and buttons for manipulation of various aspects of the sound. The Juno is a great synth that combines some modern features like MIDI with a great "classic" analog sound.
The Juno has four independent waveform generators (pulse, sawtooth, square wave sub-oscillator, and noise). The pitch can be modulated with the bender and with the Low Frequency Oscillator (LFO) to give a vibrato effect. The output is then sent through:
High Pass Filter (HPF) which either boosts or cuts the bass.
which allows the synthesizer to "slide" between notes.
The Juno-106 is one of the most loved and used synthesizers by professionals and hobbyists alike!
