I bought my Juno 106 after being inspired by the sounds of a friends 202,

deciding that analog fattness/flexibitlity was what I needed in my live

keyboard rig. The patches work excellently, the ability to change patches

on the fly is a must for live performance. After reading review after

review on the Juno 106 it seems as though only the bad reviews are written

by people who haven't found the monophonic mode, Duh? (Poly1+Poly 2) if you

fall in this pathetic group of unintuitive people. Try it through some

distortion for some really wicked teeth gritting sounds. But remember it's

just a tool like anything else, just learn how to use it.

Just got one yesterday... what can I say? This thing SINGS!

As Jean Bosio has already noted, its the sliders (and the filters they are

attached to) that make the synth. Tweak the sliders as you play for a

bitchin techno sound, or set up a smooth pad for ambient/new-age. Critics have noted that after a while, every patch sounds the same.

This is quite true, but it doesn't really matter, because they all sound

excellent! And of course, like most instruments, its true beauty can only be heard

when it is playing Bach...

Never understood the ferver over the 106. To me, it sounds thin with limited range of tonality. I still have one but it's definitely an auxilliary keyboard. By know means could it stand on its own as

the main source. On the positive, it is nice to have a keyboard that you can jack w/the sound on the fly and not have to dive

into some programming/editing depths using a 40 character lcd as your window. Edit-by-ear...kind of refreshing.

I do like it - but I do think it's a little over rated - the sliders have a fairly lo

resolution which means that it's quite hard to get pinpoint control.

This is especially true on the envelopes and the filters. Not too much of a problem but if you like to have that degree of control you should

be aware of it. The other thing that's a little annoying is the speed of the envelopes - they are a bit slugggish

and consequently make it hard to get very 'tight' or clicky sounds. great for slow sweeping and fullsome pads

Just my 0.2 worth

I had one once, but a shortage of cash mad me sell it :((

If you can get one for about £300, you should, as it makes

some pretty wicked sounds. Bare in mind tough, it's the sliders

that make the synth (i.e. the ability to mess around.
