My Juno 106’s pitch bend is very sensitive when it’s at the center. It starts changing pitch with the lightest touch. Additionally, often times if the pitch bend is at the center and I start bring up the DCO slider on the little modulation board, then the pitch of the synth is affected. Again, this happens without touching the pitch bend itself.
I noticed that the pitch bend pot doesn’t have a center detent, but I don’t know if that’s normal for this Juno (it’s an early serial). Other possible issues I could think of are the spring being worn, or that the pot itself is worn out by the allen screw that hold the plastic bender to the pot.
Any insight into what might cause this? I’m hesitant to buy a new pitch bend pot because of the price but also in case it doesn’t fix the issue.
