Analogue Renaissance has created a series of Gravitational Slingshots – upgrades/mods for classic Roland synthesizers.
The first is a new VCF/VCA chip that’s designed to replace the stock chip on a Roland Juno-106 (or any synth that uses them). AR says that it gives the Juno-106 a ‘much bigger sound’.
This video, via gstormelectro, takes a look at the process of replacing the chips, and then demonstrates the results.
Today I got a special package from Syntaur, the USA distributor of Analogue Renaissance products. It’s a set of six 80017A-GS VCF/VCA replacement upgrade chips for the Roland Juno-106 synthesizer.
What’s involved to install them? How do they sound? I’ll demonstrate – but you be the judge!
