The Roland Juno-60 is a popular 61-key polyphonic synthesizer introduced by Roland Corporation in September 1982 as a successor to the Roland Juno-6, which had been on the market since February that year. Like its predecessor, the Juno-60 is essentially an analog synthesizer with digitally controlled oscillators. Roland was losing market share with the Juno-6 in competition against the Korg Polysix. Related in features and price-class, the Polysix featured programmable patch memory, which the Juno-6 lacked. Programmability and external control (via Roland's proprietary Digital Communications Bus (DCB)) were added to the Juno-6, which was then re-introduced as the Juno-60 (which sonically and architecturally did not change notably from its predecessor). Production of the Juno-6 ceased in August 1983.

I'm sensing a Juno-60 impersonator.

Behringer Model D TC Electronic is in the process of designing an FX pedal that employs the exact same circuitry of the Juno 60 including the BBD chips. Very exciting! Uli

1 mono and 1 poly starter setup?

I wonder who wins in the fight between that and: Juno 60 SH - 101 Same price, similar sounds. I wonder which option has more tone?
