The Juno-106 by Roland was the first (and so far only) real analog synthesizer I owned. I really loved that instrument. The one I owned had a silent third voice which wasn't critical for me, but then also the first voice broke and I wasn't able to get spare parts anywhere, so I sold it for a ridiculous amount of money.
This emulation features the same controls and features as the original one. The sound is as far as I remember very close.
The main synthesizer part and the first 28 presets are taken from an old NI-ensemble with some minor changes. Some presets above number 64 are taken from the Junatik-ensemble in the current Reaktor 5 library.
There are some differences to the real Juno:
1. The "MANUAL"-button enables/disables memory protection.
2. By pressing the "WRITE"-button a preset is stored to the current bank and patch number
3. You can't connect a tape recorder to store or load presets. Therefore I decided to use these buttons as unison detune control. Pressing "SAVE" gives zero detuning like on the original, pressing "VERIFY" gives slight detuning and "LOAD" gives strong detuning.
4. The bender can't be pushed upwards, to trigger LFO pitch modulation there's an extra button.
5. The envelope generator that controls LFO delay is polyphonic.
Almost all panel controls respond to MIDI control change messages. The Info Hints show the CC-number.
The instrument has monophonic Pitch-, Gate- and CV- inputs to connect sequencers. Although the inputs recieve only monophonic data, the instrument plays polyphonic if poly-mode 1 is selected. So it can play overlapping notes without cutting the previous note.
Comes with 128 snaps.
There's one bug with preset selection: If you select a snapshot via the instrument header from group B and then press one of the bank or patch buttons, it jumps back to group A.
