Hi
Ive got a Juno 60 that slowly died...Ive spent lots of $ trying to keep it alive but the repair guys just rob me and cant find the problem. I know the filters, the chorus , the white noise and the LFO are still working ...something is wrong with the oscillators - I know theyre not all dead (the voice cards)...but the old beast aint making any sound from them...*

so...How hard is it to cannibalise the chorus out of one of them - its a nice chorus!? Or the filter to use as a lo-pass? or any of it really? Im sick of it just sitting there under the bed looking sad.

Thanks
R.

*the patch memory has trouble too...

Hey man, almost the same thing happened to mine, only first the patches went, then the lfo, then the... I just cut my losses and sold the beast. FWIW, i never liked the chorus, which also broke. Its sort of a one trick pony IMHO, and a cheesy one at that

"what to do with a half dead juno 60"

Take said Juno 60 and cover with bubble wrap.
Then send it to;

Andrew Sharp
26 Parkes St
Nambucca Heads.

When he's happy and healthy again, I'll remind him to send you a postcard! Laughing

Not really,
I was offering a good home for it to rest and recuperate in. Laughing
But I'd probably have a go.
I just love the old Roland synths.
Would you sell it?
