Inside The Roland Juno Oscillators


We can all agree the Juno-6, 60 and 106 sound glorious. For me, it was the first synth I saw as an instrument, rather than an out-and-out synthesizer. Great news then that Stargirl Flowers has taken a close look at exactly how the Junos sound the way they do; going deep into the circuitry, design, and operation of the oscillators. 

Her detailed investigations led her to create the Juno-inspired DCO Winterbloom's Castor & Pollux - a modular unit which faithfully modernised the original design. For anyone who has owned or played a Juno, it's a fascinating insight into what exactly is creating that fabled Juno magic. Support her sterling work by donating  via Ko-fi or sponsor her on Github.
