  • Nice Compact Synth For Live Gigs

    Roland JUNO-1Published on 08/02/15 at 14:43
    This was my very first synthesizer. I still use the Alpha Juno on many of my recordings today

    PROS:
    One-touch editing for Tone Modify (Mod Rate - Mod Depth - Brilliance - Envelope Time)
    Hooverlicious sounds!
    Excellent support site with info and 1000's of free Tone downloads http://llamamusic.com/mks50/mks-50.html

    CONS:
    No velocity or aftertouch except via MIDI

    Less compared to Juno 2:
    4-octave keyboard instead of 5, no vlocit or aftertouch.
    No memory cartridge
    The "plus" jacks backup to tape.

    LCD 16 characters
    Dimensions: 802x240x79 mm - Weight: 5.4 Kg

    The synth has a very clean lines and unadorned, enhanced by its narrow width and small depth impression. The keyboard is soft, nice, but a bit noisy.

    UTILIZATION

    This is an easy to use synth. It has very few parameters. Alpha-dial dial (endless) is used to select parameters and change the values. Just like its big brother, the Juno-2, it is editable by sysex programmer PG-300, PC-EZ Alpha editors, PG300emu and other control surfaces and keyboards master managing sysex. ..
    It has a big advantage over the Juno-2 in gaming: the opportunities the expression pedal. This, assigned to the dynamic, can be used to offset the lack of keyboard velocity, but more importantly, assigned to aftertouch, finally can have a pitch control or filter opening the pedal . As long as one is clever enough to use the pedal, it has a much more expressive than the Juno-2 synthesizer, including aftertouch is not qualified.

    SOUNDS

    The sound generator of the Juno-1 is identical to those of the Juno-2 and MKS-50. You can read my opinion on the Juno-2 for details.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I had quite a priori on the Juno-1 before I was given the opportunity to try one for a month, I imagined as a sub-2 Juno.
    The existence of the Juno-1 seems to be only one thing: the desire to leave the manufacturer at the time a polyphonic synth briefs symbolic price of less than 100,000 yen (source: Roland JUNO microsite). Roland is part of a JUNO-2, and removed an octave, velocity and aftertouch keyboard, and replaced by a tape storage cassette interface.
    Of course, the absence of dynamic keyboard removes the expressivity in the game, however, far from making a JUNO-2 at a discount, the result is quite successful and different from its predecessor: an appealing little synth, and instead focused lead (also the first preset in this direction), with the surprise of the expression pedal can control aftertouch assigned to the filter or pitch.
    And controlled via MIDI, it offers all the possibilities of Juno-2.
    It is still cheap, enjoy!
    With that, I promise, this is my last opinion on the Alpha series JUNO/MKS-50 (unless the HS-10 and 80 do not fall into my hands) :)

    analog synthesizer with digitally controlled oscillator.
    Subtractive type juno 106

    UTILIZATION

    Very simple to edit and alpha dial very wise can control the parameters live. Ergonomics for the time.

    SOUNDS

    Sounds hot, beautiful tablecloths, nice punchy bass typically analog. Roland sound that made the reputation of the brand is present in this synth.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This is one of the few synths that time 80's really worth checking out. Today it has a reputation that is not usurped and is highly sought after. When we heard we know why. ...

    COD 6 ways to synth produced in 1985 to develop the synths portable, lightweight and accessible to the general public.

    UTILIZATION

    Usage is fairly simple, you have a dial and button assignments that can navigate through a menu not very puzzle and change settings. The memory part is divided into two parts of 64 sites (128 total), a first preset bank fairly complete and a second bank to store your manipulations.
    Editing is very simple.
    Manual hyper clear but not really necessary everything is pretty intuitive.

    Manual hyper clear but not really necessary everything is pretty intuitive.

    SOUNDS

    To the extent these are not the VCO COD but the sound is somewhere between analog and digital and it works surprisingly well. This gives not a grain but very strong atmosphere exudes a very 80's obviously a lot to play the presets on this point.
    The low pass filter is fairly well made and gives the Juno's side autonomous and diverse.
    We can get almost everything provided to the nose in the menu to setup the machine and see the different sounds refine proposed.
    Curiously I found 100 times more exciting than its ancestor, the Juno 60 and somewhere much more interesting in its approach (lightweight, portable, noon 3DCO inland and a package of presets)
    The chorus effect can make a good impression but I've never been a fan donations I can be objective.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've known him a long time (sold, purchased) and to my surprise it is one of those small bikes sounding typical that one can easily paste mix if you want a particular color.
    For more or less € 150/200 (It really is not worth more) keyboard is really engaging, easy to program, light, not too weak (albeit plastic), marked by his time (his level ) and not too far.
    The one that I keep Juno and I shall keep.

    Good presets classified in different banks of sounds, a good pitch, chord function. Midi taken ...

    UTILIZATION

    Easy to use thanks to the presets. Editing capabilities but rather restrictive.

    SOUNDS

    The sounds are correct (brass, strings, pianos and organs synths + effects) but I love putting their effects in the ass!
    As is in an analog synth sound that becomes very powerful!

    OVERALL OPINION

    Three-four years that I use and I'm very happy. Perfect for rave with live effects behind.

    As cit prcdement, nothing to add.

    UTILIZATION

    The most simplistic!

    SOUNDS

    Sounds super cool, horror movie atmosphere.
    have low trunk

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for two years as an addendum to my arrangements.
    It certainly has its place from the time the sound is processed by effects or if the song keeps the color and spirit of this vintage clav.
    Use it alone would make her 80's but immicer in its present note is to give an old-school with no problem. I find it enjoyable but not up to say that dchire. If the family of Juno there is one that kills, it will be for me without question JUNO 6. Unfortunately I have not yet. ...

    This miraculous device can play the big bass hot which does not saturate, the purest and lead me where I never leave it on the combinations of atmospheric layers, to say that we can create at home if one is very nice to him, so take plenty of time to understand, manipulate, try the worst imaginable delusions, we can make the cosmic environment where I know fail to hear the arrival of aliens by creating algorithms that can last for long minutes on end ...
    Ok There's other bikes can do that but more than 4500 euros, used once and can even back then cost about 10 or 15 blocks or more, but frankly I understand better now why it is necessary Studies of large sound engineer to palpate these devices because of the coup several months of work, patience can lead to results even if the gun problem is what to do with a sacred and never heard a huge .. .

    OVERALL OPINION

    What I like about him is that he should be left alone, suddenly I like mixing with other machines to see him, he has this thing to bluff his world, there's mouth gear including, oh yes I have my memory is not enough, the blow can be edited on a PC but that takes courage because sysex or other problems thank you very much, editors are often ill fucking unfortunately, it's me against this problem me hints not quite on the contrary to resume the old methods of Jarre who was playing like everyone else to get its settings on the sheets provided by Roland, and yes it is also analog, but then what presence, what Heat the sound, frankly Why the scan while it is already so qualitative that can throw it in a mix right now ...

    - What type of keyboard (piano synth ...)? How many octaves?
    Keyboard type synth without VLOC. Four octaves.
    - What Controller (pitch, modulation, sustain ...)?
    A 2-axis joystick allows pitch and modulation (handy to move the sound).
    - What connection (Audio, MIDI pedals ...)?
    Trio classic twelve o'clock. Taken to pedals. Stereo or mono audio output + headphone jack.
    - How many sounds, effects? What styles? Are ditables?
    All sounds are ditables. Effect: the chorus. A kind of pitch (watch the rglage applies all the sounds).

    - Via a utility Mac / PC?
    Yes it is also convenient to store or even edit sounds since the apps offer the interface configuration pg300 (found at alphadial I think).
    - What is polyphony? ...
    I have over the exact figure but it is reasonable, sr there has been progress since then.

    UTILIZATION

    - The configuration gnrale Is it easy?
    Enough even if the principle of navigation pages by pages can sometimes annoying (I say was against the old configs o All parameters are directly under the fingers)
    - The edition of sounds and effects is it easy?
    It's not complicated trs once you head into the architecture of the machine. I recommend the use of 300 pg or a soft formulation. It's faster and more fun than navigating through the pages.
    - The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
    Download on the net anything.

    SOUNDS

    - The sounds they agree your style of music?
    Can be drawn from a broad palette of sounds even if everything is built from combinations of basic waveforms.
    - Are they ralistes?
    Okay, it's not too much at stake.
    - The effects are they effective and responsive?
    The chorus is effective trs. The key pitch can play fixed intervals (such straight, octave). I use it primarily to switch to mono. I happened to rgler to play the same note four octaves: the standard.
    - The expression is good? (Raction VLOC the aftertouch)?
    The keyboard is not sensitive, but we can all be done by controlling the remdier juno from a keyboard give this kind of sensitive.
    - What are the sounds you prfrez, you dtest? ...
    Bzz pouic tffvvvv skrkk
    Example of the use of a song: Haunted Blue ( http://www.myspace.com/theghostfile ) . I used to "lead" (the moog sound, at the same time I never had a moog ).

    OVERALL OPINION

    - How long have you use it?
    9 months
    - What is the particular feature you like best and least?
    The +: bass sounds and slick, it's hot, serious, powerful
    the -: page navigation
    - Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
    a Korg X5, a nordrack X2 (they also agree fairly well Defines the condition of all RLES)
    - How do you report qualitprix?
    excellent: 120 euros
    - With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
    for that price, so no hsiter

    100% analog synth despite the numerical control (which explains their relatively low ratings)
    We thus find that the settings can be found on d other analog knobs with less.
    The alpha dial makes easily editable parameters (even playing by changing a single parameter)

    UTILIZATION

    Ultra intuitive, as we get to use it without instructions which proves that it was designed with intelligence. It is not always the case orders a digital synths of the time.
    When one knows the parameters c is a pleasure to create new sounds.

    SOUNDS

    The sounds are super hot and have found the grain of the real analog.
    What is amazing is that even among c sounds pre-programmed sounds aggressive as none c is still often the case on other machines.
    functions to an expression such as pitch bend etc. have been separated from other parameters which is very significant.

    Super hot for cloths and tablecloths including scalable they ride. We find the "grain" that has made Roland Juno fame that preceded.
    The analog bass also have a hell of potato. 25 years after its release the sounds it produces are not dated.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This is a synth that does not market its output (in the Age of Yamaha FM synthesis) but against today it has become very interresting because it has a warmth and a grain that can hardly be found on emulations.
    Also what might seem like a failure at the outset, namely the digital controls, becomes an advantage because on the one hand the old analog synths of the 70s often have knobs that crachotent (which makes their use during the game impossible) and secondly they are overpriced. The Juno 1 it is not recognized at fair value (probably because many people know that this is a pure analog juice.
    Over time this keyboard should be more sought after so if you find one, please.
    I for one am not ready to part with it because it produces exactly the kind of sound I'm looking for. I would do the same choice without hesitation.
