Vinz67's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Roland JUNO-2
61-note velocity-sensitive VLOC the (game average: 80) and aftertouch.
Prs joystick button to activate the pitch portamento and the "chord memory" which, if nothing has Dfine, makes the monophonic synth (good for solos)
Polyphony 6 notes. Chorus very useful but not rverb / delay.
There are 3 oscillators:
- A square wave for
- One for a saw-tooth: the two oscillators is therefore one or more modes can be varied pulse width
- A sub, which is a square wave drive and one or two octaves below
- A noise to gnrateur CHHHHHHH :-)
- All happening in an HPF (which can boost the bass)
It is regrettable that we can not rgler the relative volume of oscillators carrdent saw. So, no FM, AM or oscillator sync, so the tone is a little variation on limit.
The oscillators are numriques, the filter is analog.

UTILIZATION

The concept is very simple: we chose a parameter with the APRS alphadial and you change its value.
Obviously, we would prfr of knobs but hey, for the price ...
The manual is clear.

SOUNDS

The sounds sound trs "Juno" hh is saying sounds a bit "acid" with a square wave and sawtooth bunk. The analog filter is dlicieux.
It is not versatile, but it does have a recognizable sound.

OVERALL OPINION

The opinions are correct previous ones is the sound of the 80s! For funk, acid techno or it is very well! Its keyboard is identical to D-50, trs is enjoyable, not too soft and the black keys are lgrement bombs. It is shallow, so for computer music is also a good master keyboard that does not take much space.
I like the analog potato, I regret that rglages (envelope, LFO, filter) are comprehensive because all oscillators arduit quite the sonic palette.
For cons, the aftertouch is fragile: if you buy a used one, let them attention (I have bought from a pro: a little more expensive than by an individual but the warranty has saved me the above!)
I like my Juno. In fact I fell for its analog strings, but otherwise it is not trs versatile, so If you are not in a style that really fits (techno / acid, funk), it is primarily a place for anything (I do).
