Roland Juno 106 80017a VCF/VCA Chip R...

At the end of PART 2 of this article, we had completed the work on the chip repairs and now we will continue with the preparation of the Module Board for the refitting of the chips. First up, we need to remove the remains of the old chip pins. Turn the Module Board over to the solder side and apply a small amount of fresh solder to each of th [...]

Roland Juno 106 80017a VCF/VCA Chip R...

At the end of PART 1 of this article, we had our chip/s soaking in Acetone prior to removal of the resin casing and/or resoldering of the chip components. The chip I had repaired previously was left soaking for two days. Due to unforseen circumstances, this time I had to travel interstate for a few days and the chip was soaking while I was go [...]

Roland Juno 106 80017a VCF/VCA Chip R...

Many people who have owned, or still own a Roland Juno 106 synthesizer are aware of the infamous 80017a filter chip failure. Being a six voice polyphonic synth, the Juno 106 contains six of these chips, one for each voice. When they fail, they typically cause either a loss of sound from the affected voice, or a crackle that usually gets worse [...]

Book of Remembrance

Then those who feared the LORD spoke with each other. The LORD listened and took note, and a scroll of remembrance was written in his presence about those who fear the LORD and honor His name. “They’ll be mine,” says the LORD of the Heavenly Armies, “in the day when I prepare my treasured possession. I’ll spare t [...]

Under the Fig Tree

Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said, “This man coming is a true Israelite, one you can trust.” Nathanael asked, “How do you know me?” Jesus answered, “I saw you when you were under the fig tree, before Philip told you about me.” Then Nathanael said, “Teacher, you are the Son of God. You are [...]

No More Pain

I heard a loud voice shout from the throne: God’s home is now with his people. He will live with them, and they will be his own. Yes, God will make his home among his people. He will wipe all tears from their eyes, and there will be no more death, suffering, crying, or pain. These things of the past are gone forever. Then the one sittin [...]

Ghost Train

And to the people He said, “Take care, be on your guard against all covetousness, for no one’s life consists in the superabundance of his possessions.” And He spoke a parable to them. “A certain rich man’s lands,” He said, “yielded abundant crops, and he debated within himself, saying, “‘W [...]

Run the Race

You know that in a race all the runners run, but only one runner gets the prize. So run like that. Run to win! All who compete in the games use strict training. They do this so that they can win a prize–one that doesn’t last. But our prize is one that will last forever. So I run like someone who has a goal. I fight like a boxer wh [...]

O Jerusalem

“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often would I have gathered your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing! Behold, your house is left to you desolate. For I say to you, you shall by no means see Me from now until you say, ‘ [...]
