The Juno-6 did not compete in the market well with the Korg Polysix, which had patch memory. It was almost immediately superseded by the Juno-60, which corrected this fault; it had 56 patch memory locations. It also came with the Roland DCB control bus, a precursor to MIDI. (Later, a DCB-to-MIDI adapter extended MIDI to this synth.) The -60 retained the -6’s arpeggiator, keyboard, and performance controls, and the basic voice circuitry was the same as the -6.

The main addition was the patch memory, which memorized all of the voice parameters (but not the arpeggiator parameters). A red border on the panel indicated which controls were remembered. The basic panel layout of the Juno-6 was retained, with the patch memory controls added to the right. The memory also included a cassette interface. 56 available patch memory locations were indicated on the panel, but other “hidden” ones were accessible by pressing (undocumented) combinations of patch selection buttons. The Juno-60 was one of the first synths to be equipped with a test mode, which the technician could use to calibrate the circuitry and diagnose various circuit faults.
