JUNO-G Version 2.0 Synthesizer


Roland has announced version 2 of its JUNO-G workstation, available as a free download for owners of the original model.

The software upgrade adds user sampling and sample-pad triggering to the feature set, letting you expand your sound library. Using the external input, you can capture audio from a microphone, a CD/MP3 player, etc., and assign the recorded sound to a front-panel button where it can be triggered like a pad.

New Features

  • User sampling and waveform editing now available with Version 2
  • Stores up to 9,000 samples (user: 2,000, card: 7,000)
  • Sample triggering from the six buttons below the LCD screen
  • 12 samples can be assigned simultaneously to the buttons (6 samples x 2 groups)
  • Version 2 available to all JUNO-G owners via free download!

If you’ve used version 2, leave a comment with your thoughts! Continue reading

This is a cover version (fairly loose) of Vangelis’ Memories of Green.

Short excerpt from Bladerunners atmospheric piece.

I used a little flange effect on the Juno G’s piano as Vangelis did for the original. (I think he used a guitar flange pedal)

Roland Juno-106 synth – unison mode

YouTube Preview Image

This is a video demo of the Roland Juno-106 synth’s unison mode.

via hamsterdunce:

This synth dates all the way back to 1984, as does my inner adolescent as I attempt to explain the very first trick I ever learned on a synthesizer: How to enter unison, or monophonic (solo) mode.

My synth sounds like crap in this mode. Maybe yours sounds better? Watch and pretend that learning is fun!
