JUNO-106 Ableton Live Pack

One of the Most Iconic Analog Poly Synths Ever Built

The Roland Juno 106 is a classic polyphonic analog synthesizer, famous for its analog warmth and diverse sound capabilities. The Juno 106 has been widely used on commercial recordings and is a highly sought after analog synth.

Capturing the Classic Sound in Ableton Live

I spent quite a while with the Juno 106, sampling its factory presets, as well as sounds I designed myself. For each sound, I sampled 8 octaves. This ensures that each sound is faithfully represented inside of Ableton Live’s Instrument Racks.

In total, there are 81 different sounds. These range from warm pads, aggressive leads, noise swells, plucks, strings and brass. I tried to capture the entire range of the Juno 106. Each sound is drenched in smooth and warm analog tone.

Tons of Macros and Effects For Complete Customization

It’s not just the samples and sounds from the Juno 106 that makes this pack special, it’s also the extensive effects and carefully programmed Macro Controls. I’ve designed an array of Audio Effects that allow you to make these Juno sounds even “more Juno-y.” Each of the effects below are included as separate Audio Effect Racks, so you can use them on any sound in any production.

The Audio Effect Racks…

The Audio Effect Racks within the Instrument Rack Presets add even more character to the Juno 106 sounds. They can also be used separately on any sound in any project.

ASDR, Saturation, Spread, and Velocity   Shape the instrument over time with attack, decay, sustain, and release. Add some overdrive. Timbre Shift affects the way the samples are distributed across the keyboard, you can get some drastic changes in texture and sound with this one Macro alone. Give your instrument a wider stereo sound with Stereo Spread. And control the instruments sensitivity to incoming MIDI velocity, perfect for adjusting the dynamics of your performance.

Emulation of the Juno's Famous Chorus   This is an emulation of the Juno's characteristic chorus. The Juno comes with two different choruses, but the emulation has three! The third is the most extreme and is more like a ring modulator. You can also adjust the stereo width after the chorus and add or subtract any extra gain created by the chorus effect.

Overdriven Filter   Sculpt the sound with a variety of different filter types. Add LFO modulation to the filter frequency. Then give your filter an overdriven tube distortion.

Crush n Destroy   In case things are a little too clean for you, you can add anything from subtle distortion and noise to extreme destruction and chaos!

The Delay Master   This effect rack combines a Grain Delay with a Ping Pong Delay. You can get some very interesting textures from the Grain Delay, and then repeat them and layer them with the Ping Pong Delay.

Flanger and Phaser   The Flanger and Phaser rack can really transport the instruments into outer space! Try just a subtle amount for a little extra space in your mix, or go all out and see what happens. This effect rack adds some really nice texture to the distorted sounds of the Crush n Destroy Rack, try them together.

Tremolo n Drift n Glue   Have fun messing around with volume modulation using the tremolo controls. You can get traditional tremolo effects to create tempo-synced volume chops or play around with the Trem. Phase control to get some really exciting stereo movement. The Pitch Drift controls recreate the pitch drift on old analog synths. You can add a lot of character to your instrument with just a subtle pitch drift. Try using a low amount (up to 2Hz) with a slow rate (up to .5Hz) for subtle character. Or go all out and recreate a broken old analog synth. Finally, the Glue Compressor is used to tighten everything up and add some extra volume.

The Ultimate Collection of Juno 106 Sounds for Ableton Live

With 81 Instrument Racks, each multi-sampled from a wide variety of Juno 106 patches, and dozens of Macro Controls controlling numerous Audio Effect Racks, The JUNO-106 Ableton Live Pack captures and expands on the sound of this classic synthesizer.

I personally love these instruments and am enjoying them in my own music. I am confident you will too, or I will give you your money back.

Have fun and enjoy discovering what makes the Roland Juno 106 one of the most popular analog polyphonic synthesizers of all time!
