…why I’ve never came across an Alpha Juno 1 or 2 where those ugly 80s membrane buttons had broken down.
So, today I had to open one up to replace the backlight panel. It was a bit dusty inside, so I decided to take it apart for a good cleaning. Guess what I found?
Wait what? Looks like pretty high-quality sealed mechanical buttons to me.
Turns out Roland actually faked those membrane buttons to make the Alpha Juno look all cool and contemporary!
