Group Description

This is the place for the Roland Alpha Juno synth series: Alpha Juno 1, Alpha Juno 2, HK-10, HK-80 and MKS-50.

All the Junos in this series have the same synth engine although they have differing features. The actual Juno 2 keyboard keys respond to velocity, the Juno 1 and HK-10 keyboards do not, although played through midi with a velocity keyboard it does work.

These synths can be programmed with the Roland PG-300 or software midi editors.

Please visit the file section for patches and software editors.

The filter can be controlled in a sequencer via MIDI aftertouch with the setting: VCF AFTR=15
