Full Spatial Sounds
Take your favorite synth patch and increase the MOD RATE until the sound changes pitch and is severely detuned. Now, slowy decrease the MOD RATE until the sound just starts to sound slightly in tune again. Now, increase the BRILLIANCE slightly. You should notice a fat, stereo effect on your synth patches. Try this with an external flanger/panner on the JU-2 for a really cool effect.
Set the tuning where you want it, then press WRITE (it will say write tune fcn) and then press TUNE still holding down the write button.The same applies to setting MIDI parameters.
Getting the touch back
“One of the keys on my JU-2 always fires at maximum velocity. All of the other keys seem to work correctly. How can I fix this?”
On an Alpha Juno-2 the two contacts are tiny graphite cylinders housed inside a little rubber damper. Chances are that they have jiggled loose. You have to take the keys off which is a trick in itself, possibly a whole row of keys depending where the damaged key is. Then take the rubber damper thingy off (carefully). Then push the graphite contacts all the way back up. Clean the contacts while you’re at it. That should take care of it.
PG-300 MIDI Channel Selection
You have to set a MIDI channel on it by setting the Sub Level and Noise Level sliders according to the chart below, and then power it up while holding down the manual button. These are especially recommended for RealDrumSamples.
Recording PG-300 Tweaks
You have first to make sure that your sequencer has the ability to record system exclusive messages.
If it can then you should plug the PG-300 into your midi interface as a controller. Then in the sequencer you should set the PG-300 to be a controller for the Juno. And you should have the MIDI channel in the PG-300 set to the same as your Juno. Then you can record your realtime stuff into the sequencer and play it back.…
