The Roland Juno-106 is an analog synthesizer. It uses the same sound engine as the predecessor Juno 60 but adds extensive MIDI control. It was produced by the Roland Corporation in 40,000 copies in the period from 1984 to 1988.

It is defined as an analog synthesizer, but it has something different that distinguishes it from classic analog synthesizers, in fact it uses the DCO (Digitally Controlled Oscillator, 3 x MC5534A or in the early versions 6 x MC5534). Waveform generation is analog, but pitch stability (which is the big problem with analog synths) is digitally kept under control thanks to the circuitry contained in the vocal chips.

As for the filters (VCF / VCA, 6 x 80017A), it has nothing to envy to a Moog: 4-pole LP analog filter (-24dB / octave) with resonance controllable from zero to self-oscillation, plus an unusual HP filter for particular applications. While classic monophonic synthesizers usually have two or three oscillators to generate a fatter sound, the Juno-106 uses the built-in chorus to enrich the starting sound. The chorus technology is based on the Bucked Brigade Delay (BBD), which is a chip dedicated to delaying the signal according to an externally imposed time. The delay time is controlled by an LFO. An interesting fact about the Juno-106 is the ability to select two different types of chorus. In fact, inside the synth they are in effect, there are two separate ones (but not accessible at the same time).
