OK, just one osc. + sub. And the jupiters have 2 per voice,... I keep wondering where those 12 and 16 osc. have gone...The juno basses are still superior, the envelope has a faster attack than the Jupes. The Juno really has a sound of its own that can also be very lush, and although the jupiters are great I would never swap one with my 106. There are reasons why so many professionals and creative people use this synth. It is one of the all time greatest.

To correct something. Jupiters (expect Jupiter 4 maybe, have no experience) are very stable. JP-6 keeps tune very well. JP-8 has Roland's patent to keep it tune. MKS-80 works great as well. Anyway Juno is great synth and it's really easy to use. It didn't sound I wanted and expected but I think many found it very useful. It's very basic synth with DCO, great for straight synth sounds(well you can use it whatever, just use the outboard and imagination.

The Juno-106 is a very nice synth - both in its sound, its look and layout. Its sound isn't as 'chunky' as the Juno-60/Juno-6, but it is warmer (in a good way).

The Jupiter series, on the other hand, can create fatter, shining, shimmering sounds, yet it can't make exactly the same, unique sounds of the Juno-106. The Juno-106 also has superior pitch control, as the Jupiters can go out of tune.

Juno's are basic in the control department but they have absolutly the greatest sound. Nothing else sounds like a juno. No software, no other vintage and no new analog. You can get great sounds with very little effort. Forget about the price and forget about a tech head notion that you can't work on a synth with less controls. Judge synths on the quality of what they produce. Juno's are unique and they can do just about everything to a certain level. The pads, strings, and organ type sounds are second to none. And sound effects and sweeps are easy to make and work well in tracks. I buy and sell synths to often, I'm usually looking for sounds in my head that they can't produce, but I've always kept my juno 106. Because it always comes through. The other day it broke and now I'm genuinely sad. I miss it a lot and now I need a new one. It's one of those pieces of gear wear the value exceeds the cost. It won't do everything but it does more than the 3-500 that you pay for it.

it's not quite the juno 60, but the two have pro's and con's to eachother. vintage is vintage, and if it's a starter synth why was vince clarke playing it for 15 years, as well as depeche mode using it on Ultra, in my field of music we give a lot of respect to the Roland analogs
