AfroDJMac Juno 106

AfroDJMac has released his latest Ableton Live pack (link). This time it’s for the Roland Juno 106. An old friend of mine Jay Serken let me use his 106 in my studio for years. It was eventually stolen. I used save a row of patches each just slightly different than each other. Next I would have Cubase (then on an Atari ST) send patch changes every to the Juno every 16th note. This would emulate an analog sequencer changing CV filter. You can hear the 106 going though various guitar pedals and my Electrocomp-101 on most of my early records.

“Ableton Live Pack of 22 instruments created with the Roland Juno 106 Polyphonic Analog Synthesizer. Each instrument was sampled from a custom patch on the Juno 106 and contains 8 macro knobs with its own unique effects to further twist and manipulate this diverse collection of sounds.” – afrodjmac.spinshop.com

  1. Back in the 90’s I recorded a couple of sounds from the 106 onto zip disk to use in Fasttracker 2. To this day I love some of those samples, especially the pads we made.

  2. the juno106 records and plays back midi sysex for each slider, why not just sequence this instead of the patch switching? just curious… cool idea though.
