The legendary Juno-106 was the first Juno analog poly-synth to feature MIDI control and patch storage. Now thanks to KiwiTechnics, the Juno-106 is better than ever! This keyboard in particular has been completely refurbished with all new analog voice chips from Analog Renaissance, guaranteed not to fail. This Juno has all the classic analog polysynth lushness, and is loaded with even more memory and sequencing capabilities than ever before!
