*Bank B Preset Pack Coming Soon!*

The Legendary Roland Juno-106 came with 64 Factory presets in Bank A and 64 presets in Bank B. These presets ranged from standard orchestral sounds, rich wide pads, gorgeous analog acoustic and electric piano sounds, classic synth stabs and horns, booming 80's bass sounds, and even to quirky sound effects. Many of these presets became staple sounds in countless 80's hits and continue to be used in hit songs today.

I believe the Behringer DeepMind collection of synths absolutely nails the sound and voice architecture of the original Juno line of synths. This opened up a perfect opportunity to re-create the original Juno presets for this modern day synth that can do what all the old Junos can and much more (and without breaking every few months I might add!).

In this preset pack I have painstakingly re-created all 64 original Juno-106 presets in Bank A. The Bank A presets contain most of the most famous Juno preset sounds and cover the entire range of classic 80's synth sounds.

Because of the slight differences in the ranges of the sliders on the Deepmind compared to an original Juno-106 I took considerable time tweaking each preset by ear until they were nearly indistinguishable from the Original. Occasionally the onboard EQ had to be used to match the bass responses. The onboard chorus effect on the DeepMind was used to match both the Chorus I and Chorus II modes on the Juno-106. For the Chorus I effect I used a rate of .2Hz and for the Chorus II effect I used a rate of .6Hz.

If you would like to hear for yourself how close I was able to get here is a great page with audio samples of every Juno-106 preset to compare: https://www.synthmania.com/juno-106.htm

When you purchase you will receive a download link to a SysEx file and instructions on how to load it into your DeepMind Synth.

Enjoy and let me know how you like the presets!

-Will

Really loving the Avid S3. Here’s a couple thoughts on it for my 10 followers who are mixing engineers:

• Don’t buy it new. It’s a ridiculous price for a controller and you can get a perfect condition one for at least 50% off on @reverb

• I underestimated what having real faders and k***s would do to my decision making while mixing. I find I’m making more creative decisions based on what I’m hearing rather than on what I’m seeing on a screen.

• It makes me “feel” like I have a cool mixing board (lol), which is dumb BUT honestly it makes a difference in the way I approach a mix.

• The plug-in mapping across the encoder k***s is great for almost all of my most-used plugins (specifically the @brainworxaudio SSL 4000 E channel strip) and once you learn how each one is mapped you can truly just reach for a k**b without looking at the screen.

• It doesn’t fully replace a keyboard and mouse and I’m not sure even an S6 would either. But it eliminates at least half of my mouse using which is a MAJOR relief for my hand.

• I’m a huge nerd, go ahead, make fun of me.
