An original Roland Juno 6 from 1982....

The story

Everyone has it, the one piece of ‘if there was a fire, what would I grab?’. Mine is an all original 1982 Roland Juno 6. I’ve got a few nice pieces but this one always finds a way onto every producing /writing session.

Theres a lot of downtime and travelling in this music world, and I found myself being away a lot more and away from my studio. This was my attempt at capturing the all important ‘glue’ that this synth really excels at. It really is a beautiful sound and having it now wherever I’m touring is pretty great!

Taking every note, slightly adjusting the LFO and cutoff sweep and keeping the chorus on the whole time, I think it’s made something very usable and full of character.

To give even more colour I opted on using a Redd.51 valve pre amp, to give it the abbey road 60s colour that we all know and love!

Add some slosh and get ambient, or use it as a bed underneath. Enjoy!
