I don’t know anything about Java and really need to install this editor, since I’m running out of memories in my Juno and want to make more patches.
I have a Mac OS X 10.6.8 and downloaded the librarian, which is packed in a .zip file.
According to Bjorn (January 30th, 2010 at 14:15): “The zip file contains a jar file which is the Juno 106 Librarian Java executable. If unpacked, this file expands to a series of .class files. This file should not be unpacked.”
The problem is whenever I click the j106.zip file it unpacks automatically and I’m stuck with the folder filled with .class files that Bjorn refers to.
If I check “Open with” I can see that this j106.zip file it is preset to open with Compression Utility by default.
What should I do?
How do I install the librarian without unpacking this file?
I’ve had my 106 for a few years now, and use it quite often in gigs. Recently, some keys (different notes each time) tend to not work, which as you can imagine, is rather disastrous especially when playing live.
Any ideas what the problem is and how I can fix it? You’ll have to forgive my technical ignorance when it comes to synths!
Got it working. It’s Amazing! Is it possible to send program changes to the Librarian over MIDI? for example from Ableton Live. Are there any plans to turn this into a VST or AU? That would solve the problem!
Got the app working and it’s great. I love the interface and basically everything about it. However, I am having a problem with my Juno-106, and I was wondering if anyone here could possibly help. The sounds on my synth don’t match the patches that are supposed to be loaded. I am basing this off the list here: http://www.synthmania.com/juno-106.htm
For example, my “A11 Brass” sound sounds like wind blowing through buildings, nothing like the example above. All of the sounds seem to have this overbearing Frequency start/stop thing going on, in the very background super quiet you can hear the sound the patch is supposed to be making on some of them.
I have done the tape load reset and successfully received new patches, from here: http://www.hinzen.de/midi/juno-106/
with the exact same result as with the app. Same “windy” freq noise over anything. I actually performed this operation first and that is what led me here. now I am on a quest just to get my Juno back to factory at this point.
Is my battery dead?
Is there a setting on the Juno or in the software I am missing?
and copy both libmmj.jnilib and mmj.jar to /Library/Java/Extensions, this run with sysex commands (not just keyboard). The problem is due to the fact that Apple’s Midi implementation for Java doesn’t include support for sysex messages. This is by no means a permanent solution considering the mmj project is folding.
Hi, just getting this up and running for my 106,
how can you do one big save, say of “group” A and then B all in one go,
or do you have to save each indvidual patch one by one, I read somewhere about a batch save, but I’m struggling here..
first i’d like to thank you for this great application. it worked fine on osx snow leopard with mandolane installed so far.
now i updated to osx lion and unfortunately i can not get it to work. mandolane says it is not needed anymore and actually doesn’t work anymore. i updated to osx 10.7.3 and also installed the java update. i can play the juno with the graphic keyboard in the librarian, receiving and sending patches doesn’t work.
any idea what to do?
First off, thank you for this utility.
However I haven’t been able to fully utilize this software…
I am having problems with the midi out function, I believe.
I can click the piano roll on the software and can hear the sounds
but when I click on the factory patches above, I get no response….
I am running OS X Lion on a 27″ iMac with DAWs closed.
My midi to usb adapter is an M-Audio, which works fine.
The midi in/out on the software is directed at the M-Aduio midi adapter.
The function is set to III and memory protection is Off.
Any ideas as to what the problem could be?
Thanks for your time and consideration,
Found your 106 editor/librarian last night. Awesome. Last week I dusted off my 106 I got back in 1985 and while cosmetically it looks pretty good (missing a couple of knobs) about 5 or 6 of the sliders are worn out from use (which is one reason I haven’t used it much). Loaded your app, ran Midi out from my interface, and perfection. While I still want my sliders fixed, your editor allows me to program like I have been able to in years. Awesome. Any thoughts on making this a VST that will run within Ableton?
Hi, I got a used Juno 106 and just got the power source for it today. Finally started to play around with it and works fine but it when i press the banks and the numbers, there is no sound, only a few of the patches work. Did that person overwrite all the patches or do I need a battery or something? Thanks!
Oi há Estamos muito animado Descobrimos este weblog, eu realmente localizado você simplesmente por acidente, quando estava pesquisando sobre a Yahoo por outra coisa, Independentemente Estamos aqui mais Nós apenas quero te dizer obrigado por um post incrível, juntamente com uma agradável durante todo o blogue Mmm você ouviu Egito anúncio maravilhosa Vimax
can someone explain me why they are not the same as the one on this site ? were they different factory presets for different country or time period ? Am i crazy and they are the same actually but in a different order ? anyway, enjoy it.
I am desperately trying to get this app to control the parameters of my MKS-7 Super Quartet.
I can get it to pass through Midi, but I can’t control the parameters of the synth with this program.
I can’t even select and initialise patches. Am I doing something wrong?
This app looks and feels great, especially for something free.
Would love more than anything to have it running with my MKS-7!
Success. I got it working … After installing Mandolane I didn’t restart my mac, but a reboot seems to have got it all going. After the restart the Juno 106 librarian was able to see my usb midisport hence good communication between the the synth and computer. I recommend a restart after installing Mandolane or any other possible necessary updates (java) then I’d take instructions from Andy’s post a few comments below and you should be good to go. Thanks Bjorn!
Thanks for free app! I’ve got the program running fine, but when I load the patches from the factory patches folder I downloaded into the program (GUI) the sounds don’t change when I mouse click on the keyboard… the sliders do, but it sounds the same.
How can simply take those factory sounds and get them on to my Juno? That’s mainly what I want to do… I have write protection off and “III” on the back of synth. Any ideas – sorta stuck. Thanks much
Great website you have here but I was curious if you knew of any user discussion forums that cover the same topics discussed here? I’d really love to be a part of online community where I can get feed-back from other experienced people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Many thanks!
Mac OS X – Application works. MIDI devices shows up correctly only if one of the MIDI SPI’s from Mandolane Limited is used. Note! Please update to the latest version of the Mandalone SPI if you run Mac OSX Snow Leopard.
Hey I’m really excited about using this program, I just installed it on my Mac (osx 10.6) but when i play the virtual keyboard i hear no sounds, this includes when i have the sound library loaded. What am I doing wrong? thanx!
I got my Juno 106 out of storage and I have no sound happening… If I put-up one of the presets I get no sound .. If I then move around the faders sounds start to happen… I’ ve downloaded your librarian and am trying to get the sounds into the Juno by setting the function to 3. Then double clicking on the sound in the librarian but it is not loading… Does this need a new batterie? Or do I not have the midi working right .. When I choose an instrument in logic it will play that sound so there is midi out. I also have the midi in connected but not sure if that is connecting .. Any ideas? What am I doing wrong? Thanks
For those who are replacing batteries and the sounds on their Juno-106 is totally dead, I found some more helpful hints. First after you set up your midi in and out cables correctly (e.g. USB Midisport 4×4), adjust memory protect to off and set the switch on the back of the keyboard to III, and load the factory patches with position into your editor (on your computer), you should see the list of patches from A11 – B88 on the list on your editor (on the computer). Set the keyboard to A11 and double click A11 on the computer. You should hear the sound coming out of the keyboard then. Hold down “write” and press A11 on the keyboard. Do this with all of the sounds one at a time up to B88. When you are finished, don’t forget to set your memory protect back to on or you might loose your patches when you turn the machine off.
Hi all. I just wanted to make sure everyone here knows how to easily restore the factory sound banks to your 106. Go to http://www.hinzen.de/midi/juno-106/ Connect your sound card’s audio out to the TAPE LOAD port on your Juno. It just takes a 1/4 inch cable. Make sure you are in the bank you want to over write, and press the load button. Then click on the link for the factory bank you want to load and play the audio file. Make sure you have the sounds you want to keep saved as a library on your computer because they will be over written. This process is much quicker than trying to load the factory banks patch by patch.
I tried this librarian and found that it does not offer any MIDI out ports. All my other apps can use MIDI In/Out without any problems, but Librarian shows an empty drop-down menu under MIDI Settings – Output port.
Any hints or ideas?
@Mick yes, it works under W7, you need Java installed. To use it, just double click on the .jar file. If .jar is already associated to a particular application click with the right button and choose “open with-java”. http://www.java.com to dowload java.
Now, when you load a patch, you will get all 6 voices responding to that patch on channel 1. You can change the channel back to another value if you want. Also, you can change the chord and melody midi channels back and forth to channel 1 when in normal mode to load a different patch for both sections.
Now, if only I could figure out how the bass section architecture works… for now, I’m stuck to presets…
Finally, all I have to say is: Fantastik Bjorn, thanks!
got it all to work. the only thing i don’t get is how to write edited patched to the juno. using mac os 10.6.4 receiving works fine. but i can’t find sending in the manual, neither did anything i tried work. (memory protection off, function set to II)… anyone?
I cannot seem to get the LFO trigger on my Juno to function, I remember that it worked when I first started using it, now it does nothing. Is there a certain way to set it up or it just broken? I messed around with the function switch on the back, but still nothing. I’ve ended up just using the LFO fader instead, but I don’t like that as much. Any help would be much appreciated.
here’s a general Juno 106 question … sorry for the off-topic, but maybe one of you can help me out. My problem: The juno seems to react very sensitively to my playing. When I call up a preset and start to play (not very forcefully), after a few seconds it will change the sound to the actual slider positions … which is quite annoying. Is there any way around this?
From Björn February 17th, 2010 at 20:00 It sounds as one or more of the sliders on your Juno-106 is broken. The sliders get worn out after many years and then start to “signal” the wrong value. My Juno-106 is the same, which was one of the reason that I made this application…
The quick fix is to find identify which slider that is broken, then try to find a position of that where it does not change value. The long term fix is to buy new sliders on ebay and repair the synthesizer.
just bought a Juno 106 and got a great start thanks to this site! The previous owner’s patches were kind of sub par, so it was quite helpful to restore some of the factory presets … and I gotta say the Orion bank is even way better!
The best thing (for a newbie like me who wants to learn about synth programming) is that you can actually see all the slider positions for each patch which makes reverse engineering that much easier.
Hi, great website and app program!! Thanks Bjorn!
Anyhow, im new in using this synth and hardware in general, always been using software since i started production recently…
Question: Is it possible to have the juno 106 do midi changes in daws like cubase?
I add a midi channel in cubase and im able to record notes from the juno but cant save any lfo or slider changes… is there anything out there that allows us to record/save slider movements when we record midi in cubase for example?
Thanks for your time!!
From Björn February 3rd, 2010 at 8:30 The Juno-106 communicates all controller changes using MIDI sysex messages. You should be able to record and transmit these messages in your sequencer. I know Cubase by default filters out sysex messages but this is changed from some setting. Your Cubase manual should tell you how.
What do you have to do to transfer the patch to the juno? I press the A11 key on the synth and it shows up in the librarian as A11. Then i double click on A11 from the loaded patch file and i hear the different patch when i strike a key on the juno. Now how do i get that sound to copy to the juno?? Do i press the manual, then write button? i tried but no luck.
From Björn February 1st, 2010 at 8:50 Once the sound is transferred from the Librarian to the Juno, i.e., when you hear the different sound, you have to use the buttons on the synthesizer to save the sound. This is done by holding down “write and selecting your preferred patch to overwrite.
Note that the memory protect switch on the backside has to be set to “off”.
How do i start this software
It unzips as a series of .class files
Any help appreciated..
From Björn January 30th, 2010 at 14:15 The zip file contains a jar file which is the Juno 106 Librarian Java executable. If unpacked, this file expands to a series of .class files. This file should not be unpacked.
Hi Bjorn, thanks for the app.
I have a new usb midid interface and am trying to connect my juno106 to the librarian iwthout any luck. I’ve set the midi setting to the GS wavetable syth setting but I don’t get any response from the program for receiving data. Is there something I’m missing? Please let me know as I’m thrilled to try your great software.
From Björn January 30th, 2010 at 14:00 Your MIDI input should be the one corresponding to your USB midi interface. Then it should work.
-Have you accidentally knocked the output level switch on the rear of the synth, on the extreme right hand side (looking at it from the back)?
There`s no other reason that a change of patches should result in an overall drop in output volume.
Have you tried Bjorn`s editor yet? Why not use this to refill the 106 with another bank of sounds, and see if the problem persists?
I have been using the Juno 106 for a few years and have been very happy with the sound.
Recently I decided to load the factory patches via the tape in to try to get the original juno sounds. What a terrible mistake this was. Not only (as far as I can tell) the factory sound were nothing to right home about) but everything that made this synth good is now gone! The output volume is very low and it sound is tiny :( Even with the volume set all the way up I cant get volume from this thing. This is NOT my juno 106 synth anymore.
Right now this synth is absolutely useless to me.
Is there anyway I can undo what I did to the sound by loading the factory presets through the tape in and restore the punch and volume that my juno had prior to me doing this?
AWESOME!!!! Thank you so very much for making this application available ;-)
Also saved my skin, as my Juno seems to be unable to change the HPF value (possibly a switch problem).
I can now, of course, make the required selection in the editor and so use this function again!
Kudos to you my friend!!
I have successfully downloaded the Librarian software on my Windows XP platform, connected my 106 via midi-USB, and have followed all directions per the Help Hints section, yet the software is not working.
Could I have some kind of Java version compatability issue? I have read thru the entire forum but to no avail.
Please help as I am really desperate to get this to work!!!
(Please see my post of June 24). Someone was kind enough to tell me via email what to use in place of the the non-existant dump button, and how to load the factory patches into the unit, but I cannot find that correspondence. I need to load the factory patches in again, and cannot remember the proceedure. (It may be intuitive to you folks who deal with MIDI all the time, but it makes no sense to those of us who do not. The only thing I’ve managed to do without help is to play the 106 from the editor’s keyboard.) Please help me again. Thanks.
lent out my 106 for a while (mistake) – came back not uttering so much as a squeak; not from either output, or the headphone jack. Seems to step through the patches OK, the chorus/range etc lights seem to change so the memory looks intact – maybe a MIDI volume message thing that it was subjected to at some stage? Any ideas welcome….thanks from Nick
Oh man, wow, thanks for the app. I just acquired a Juno-106 last night and am having a total blast with it. My first analog synth…I am so stoked, it sounds fantastic and is in near pristine condition. This librarian will make playing around with my new baby even more fun!
(OS X 10.4.11; Garageband; poorly Juno) Evening, all; I just unearthed a Juno that a mate left here some time ago. Delighted to hear it again… or most of it. Trouble is, it keeps selecting random keys to just die and not work for a bit; and they are random, I can’t narrow it down to just a dodgy key or two. Anyone got any ideas as to how I can bypass the the onboard presets and use the keys solely to trigger Garageband so I can check if there are any duff connections? Or is it a repair/salvage job? I’m rather loth to ditch it, same as any musical instrument while there’s still life in it somewhere. Thanks in advance for any help.
This practise will illustrate how simulated statistics can be created alongside rolling dice to father accidental numbers. The data you fabricate in this action will-power be utilized in all of the succeeding handbook simulation exercises. Over almost some exam or measure that you might like to with on a party of individuals. You carry on the examination and regard a single numerical vocal score an eye to each person. This score potency be the count of questions the yourself answered correctly or the average of their ratings on a set of attitude items, or something like that, depending on what you are worrying to measure.
WTF is this Dump button everyone keeps mentioning? I see no such button on the Librarian or the 106.
How do I restore the factory patches? I’ve read everything here, but nothing seems to work (“one by one activate A11…, A12,… etc in the editor and save them on the synthesizer.”) (I can play the 106 vial the Librarian, so the 106 is definitely receiving MIDI from the Librarian).
please email if you can: tim at jonas productions dot com (no spaces)
From Björn June 24th, 2009 at 22:00 Well, a good start is to avoid using some expressions when asking for free help for free software…
Other than that, It sounds like you haven’t enabled Midi function III on your juno. See usefult hints:Midi function setup.
Bought my juno about 6 years ago and i had never heard what the factory patches sounded like till now. Someone had changed every patch!
Sadly one of the voices has gone but still works well in unison. This program has acceleraterd my need to get it fixed !
Also is there any way to convert this to a vst ?
Again thanks for your hard work
From Björn June 24th, 2009 at 22:07 Sadly, Steinbergs VST implementation does not support the large SysEx messages needed to remotely edit patches on the Juno-106. A VST version would be very useful otherwise…
How to save patchs on Juno? I write in the Bank/patch number and then i put memory protect to ON. Then I ckick Save but when i restart my juno I have only the sounds before the edit. Anyone can help me?
Thanx a lot!!!
hei. i’m about to get me juno 106 and trying to find out is possible to edit midi regions recieved from 106 in logic. can your application do it? please clarify it for me as im profane in technical issues)
I have just purchased a macintosh. Cannot download my juno account into it. Is this b/c they’re not compatible? No version of Juno for macs? The juno main web page doesn’t answer the question about which version to use…
From Björn February 12thrd, 2009 at 19:11 I’m not sure I understand your question. Please clarify this.
My Juno got reset and now I have the original factory patches, which i hate. I’m trying to find a place to download a cool set of patches. Anyone know where?
From Björn January 23rd, 2009 at 23:54 I haven’t tried out these but I know there are some Juno-106 patches at Tastiere in SysEx format. You can import sysex files in the Juno-106 Librarian (file menu) and try them out via the application.
It would be great if people would like to share their Juno-106 libraries, using the Juno-106 Librarian. On the old web page I had a function to share libraries. However, it was very seldom used so I removed it.
For others who had the same problem as me, you need to download the above software (free) and copy the file called ‘plumstoneserv.jar’ into /Library/Java/Extensions, then logout and login (or restart). That’s it…
I just purchased a Mistar Midilink USB midi interface cable (which shows up in Audio/Midi Setup as aTaHorng Musical Instrument) and have been using this cable without any problems with Logic 8 Pro and other sequencing software, which tells me that there are no problems with either my Juno 106, the midi interface, my computer or the Audio/Midi setup. However, when I fire up Juno Librarian (by double-clicking ‘start.class’) and try to select Midi input ports my midi interface doesn’t show up, I only get ‘Real Time Sequencer’ as an option and this does nothing.
Any ideas about what may be wrong? FYI, I’m using OS X 10.5.5 on a G5 1.8 Ghz 20″ iMac with all system software (including Java) fully updated.
From Björn December 14th, 2008 at 13:40
There has been a bug in the JAVA MIDI implementation for Mac. I don’t know the details but I know people have successfully used the Juno-106 Librarian on Mac using a MIDI SPI from Mandalone. The MIDI SPI seems to be free of charge for powerpc macs and available for a low cost also for intel macs.
Hey im producer. I have been simply working with a regular keyboard to controll my computer program which was at the time garage band. I want to get a juno-106 and use its sounds in future track production. Im confused about the MIDI. Do i simply connect my lap top and the 106 with a MIDI USB??
From Björn December 14th, 2008 at 13:57
Hi, Yes, any MIDI interface should do it.
I am planning on producing a pure data patch which emulates a juno 106 and was wondering whether you could sketch me a quick synth diagram (or explanation) so i can see in what order the of modules the signal flows?
From Björn February 12th, 2008 at 20:33 The Juno-106 Service Manual (download at Juno-106 Connection) contains a block diagram that shows the signal flow of the synthesizer. Hope that helps.
It sounds like an interesting project, I would be glad if you could keep me updated on the progress.
Hey, I ran across your Juno-106 program and found it extremely helpful for saving specific sounds to use later, although it didn’t solve the problem I originally had. I’d like to use the Juno as a MIDI controller as well as using it for the sounds it has, but for it to work effectively, I’d like to know what the CC labels were for each slider, button, and switch since the MIDI programs I use do not have the “learn” function. Do you know where I could find a list of these? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
From Björn February 10th, 2008 at 15:08 Juno-106 control changes are transmitted as SysEx MIDI-messages. I think MIDI programs mostly support mapping of ordinary MIDI-messages (CC’s etc.) to controllers. To use the juno as a controller you would need some extra MIDI sw to map SysEx to CC’s.
From Björn December 4th, 2007 at 21:26 I’m not sure I understand your question. However, if you mean to use the Juno-106 as a sample device – it is not possible. The Juno only generates sounds from its DCO’s.
Thanks once again Bjorn. I am off to buy MIDI cables. Just one last question. Will the software be able to to read a given patch’s data (sent from the keyboard to the PC via MIDI) and display the parameter settings on the PC’s Juno-106 “dashboard?”
From Björn December 3rd, 2007 at 11:18 Yes, the parameters of the patch are displayed in the graphical user interface of the application. That is, the sliders and buttons will adjust to the saved data.
You can also use the “manual” button on the Juno to synchronize the editor to reflect the “real” settings of the juno sliders and buttons.
I have just acquired a Juno 106 with some great customized patches – but with the original factory battery!! (20 years old!!)
I’ve downloaded the owner’s manual to better understand the memory saving process but unfortunately have not been able to find a suitable tape recorder to facilitate the process. Also, I am very wary of screwing this up and losing the patch data. Can I use your software to save patch libraries to my PC??
Any suggestions as to what I can do? Please forgive my ignorance and thanks in advance for your help.
From Björn November 28th at 21:48 You can backup your patches with this app if you have a midi interface.
Download the application (preferably version 2.0) and install. Set the midi in and out ports in the application to those where your Juno is connected. Then follow steps “Midi function setup” and “Receiving patches from your Juno-106″ in the useful hints section.
Would it be possible to make a VST ? With various new features such as a syncable LFO that could be used on any parameters, usable with classic CCs… That would be the ultimate utility for the Juno.
From Björn November 1st, 2007 at 21:13 I looked up the VST plugin possibility some time ago and back then it wasn’t possible to send long enough SysEx MIDI messages. It’s a shame, to control the Juno from cubase or similar would be nice…
Also, to have parameters varying in time with LFO or some parameter envelope would be nice. That would really add a dimension to the sound. However, the programming effort is high and I’m really short of time right now.
Just briefly tested the program and it seemed perfect! Is there a way to sync the lfo to a certain bpm? I’m using Ableton which doesn’t support sysex (or does it?), so i figured that maybe i could just save a patch that has the lfo synced to correct tempo. Is this possible with the Librarian? If not, any tips on how i could do it?
From Björn October 13th, 2007 at 10:16 It would be a good idea to be able to sync the lfo rate to bpm. I think though it would be hard to find exact sync for a given bpm since the juno only recevices midi messages with integer values 0,1,2,…,127.
There’s no magic recipe to make a good sound. You have to learn by yourself, try things and see how the sound is changed. The Juno is a very good choice as a first analog synth in my opinion. It’s quite simple yet so good… Though, if you have MSN add me, I could give you advice.
This is fantastic! I have been waiting for something like this for a long time. What I’d like to see though: Can you give the application an icon? Can you make it such that you can drag it into the doc?
Great work! I use it with ableton and Midi Yoke to play the synthie via the “midi thru” function, works great! But, is there a way to automate the parameters via ableton? Can I send CC from ableton to your aplication?
From Björn June 25th, 2007 at 19:31 No, the application does not recognize any CC midi messages. It is however a very good idea. Thanks!
Sorry if this appears dumb, but how do I get the default library back into the Juno from your great utillity?
I’ve not used my Juno or librarians for a few years now, so am a bit rusty!
From Björn June 14th, 2007 at 16:11 Unfortunately there is no automatic way to transfer the whole library at once so you have to do it one by one. There’s a post below on the same topic (2006-11-29 11:54) describing this.
From 2007-06-07 21:30
any who can or have pacth for Spleen United?
its a danis rock group theey have 2 juno106.
and one juno 60. you can listen to the sounds here http://www.myspace.com/spleenutd mail mee for more infomation or msn messenger i have juno 106 my self,want some nice sound pacth on the banks
Another suggestion… *.syx file export (or *.mid export) feature so patch data can be imported into sequencers. This will be handy for those of us with MKS-7 units (rack mount Juno 106s, essentially), which do not have persistent memory… ie, they lose all customized patches on power-down.
From Björn March 27th, 2007 at 14:02 pm Sysex file export has been on my mind to include but I have unfortunately not implemented it. It will probably be in the 2.1 release or so.
It’s just the basic ‘export patch to SysEx’ functionality you are requesting right?
THANK YOU for working on this. Editors and librarians for classic gear are becoming harder and harder to find… Has anybody tested this on Vista yet? I’m about to upgrade. I imagine as long the latest Java runtime fully supports MIDI on Vista, there shouldn’t be a problem — I’m just curious.
Nice Librarian program,
Was starting to get worried that my programming would someday get lost, now not a problem, all saved, and for once I get to check out the Factory patches (bought mine used, they were mostly gone). I like being able to download a patch onto the manual setting just to check it out. And the program works great !!!
Very good librarian, thanks for your work. Do you think it’s
possible to add the single patch file (*.syx) import feature?
Greetings from Italy
January 18th, 2007 at 23:31 pm I will probably include sysex file import in v2.0. Do you possibly have a syx file with patch data from a Juno-106 that you could send to me via email? Thanks.
can you provide me with a step by step instruction on which buttons in the app to press? how do i use the dump button?
i would like to create a backup of my banks.
regards from berlin.
From Björn January 18th, 2007 at 21:24pm Actually I am working on a step by step guide for the next version but here’s how you backup:
1) Connect the Juno-106 via Midi and select the proper MIDI In ports in the application
2) Make sure the synthesizer is in midi function III (there’s a switch on the backside)
3) If everything is correct setup, when you press A11 on the synth, a patch A11 will be displayed in the Midi in receiver part of the app. Patch transmission can only be initiated from the synthesiszer.
4) A received patch is saved to the current library in the app by pressing the ‘save’ button.
5) The ‘dump’ button enables automatic save of all received patches to the current library.
i just download your applicatin for os x. thank you. how long should a patch “dump” take? been waiting for a while now and my MIDI in port is blinking, so data is being sent from juno to USB MIDI Interface.
thanks. From Björn January 18th, 2007 at 9:48 am The Juno-106 does (unfortunately) not support automatical patch dump .
A patch is transmitted when you press the selecting buttons A11, A12, A13 etc. on the synthesizer.
The dump button in the app saves all received patches automatically but you have to press the buttons on synthesizer by hand.
Love this editor.
How can I upload the defaul patches to
the juno 106?
From Björn November 29th, 2006 at 11:54 am Uploading all default patches (or another set) to the Juno-106 is possible but time consuming.
(1) Open the ‘factory patches (with position).106′ library in the editor and (2) one by one activate A11…, A12,… etc in the editor and save them on the synthesizer.
As for now this is the only option to restore the synthesizer.
Ive installed yesterday the 1.0 version and somehow its works fine on my macintosh g4 powerbook. Your program is really useful, now i can start to save the patches and recall them from my computer.
Hi. You mention Plumstone for Macs on your web page http://www.jarvik7.net/juno-106/
Plumstone has now been moved to a new home at http://www.mandolane.co.uk and you might like to update your web page.
You might also mention that Intel Mac users should not use Plumstone, but should use Mandolane MIDI SPI instead. This can be found on the same web site.
I just loaded all factory patches from scratch and turned it off before switing to protect patch mode!gggrrrr! Great program. Thanks for taking the time to do the program and the site. Thanks for sharing.
when i turn all the way up on freq slider i heared something like noise,like a osc get stuck while im not play anything on keyboard but i have to say is very very good job! I will love to see the next version. Keep up the good work!! ALL THE BEST 4 YOU!!!
Hi there I just got a juno 106 and love your librarian but I don’t know if there is anything wrong with my juno or not??
As wehen I change patches some keys work and others don’t or all of a sudden the key that wasn’t working works then works when the vibrating noises change.
Is there something wrong with my juno or are they all this way??
From Björn March 3rd, 2006 at 20:57 pm Stephen,
I myself have not experienced the problem you describe with my synthesizer. I think the forums at http://www.vintagesynth.com contains some threads about technical problems with the Juno-106 that might give some answer (if you haven’t visited those already).
very cool. can’t wait until I can set the patch from my synth though. as I have many patches in there and I can’t see a way to get them into your librarian… I see your todo list has this – this will be very useful to me. thanks for the great work so far.
From Björn January 9th, 2006 at 13:57 pm I’m not sure what you mean but if you want to backup patches from the Juno-106 just connect it to your selected midi in port and the librarian will receive patches as you select them on the Juno. The ‘dump’ button will help you to save all received patches automatically.
