Roland HS-80

It's the home keyboard version of the Roland Alpha Juno 2, why such a thing exists I don't know, it doesn't really fit the mold for home keyboards but maybe it found it's niche.  Picture this; It's Christmas, 1985. Mr Beltram comes home with a gift for his son, Joey, a budding pianist. Is history made here? I don't know..

I have a soft spot for Roland synths of this vintage and the Alpha Junos are no exception. Great for bleepy bloopy techno. There's a few nice pads and basses here, with instruments provided for EXS24, Kontakt and Live.

Juno sounds from a different perspective can be found in the Alpha Juno Construction Kit.
