Description

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.

...the second hand market asking 500 Eur + for them :facepalm: Now they give us a Juno 106 and Juno 60 in a box and these greedy guys will have a hard time selling their Ju06s even for the money they paid for them. Well played Roland :)

...go of the P08, but it's not going to replace those magic sync/AM sounds of the SQ. Either the Juno 60 or SQ80 are going to have to go sleep in the closet for a while. Tough choice.
