If you can't give the Juno high marks, then I have say you haven't a clue as to how to maximize this synth. I haven't found anything I can't do with it. Understatement of the year. I can increase it versatility by linking through another set of devices, D-50, M1 and PC Synths (Roland and Yamaha). Its possvile to set up master-slave scenarios / subroutines and this only starts the list of uniques things I've developed in my patch library. The power is in the programming with any programmable and this one will let you do what you want any way you want. My only beef today with it is parts availability. I know several people who for lack of working parts are scavaging other decks or going onward. My music days are done, when I no longer have my trusted Juno-106 in my studio. Even my might M1 can't match its capabilities. Beginners? Yes, Professionals, well if you don;t have one in your config, then what kind of professional are you anyway? ;) Its always what we favor, and this is what I favor. To each his own. Enjoy!!

I feel that any rating under a "four" on the Juno 106 is not credible. I've read statements on how the juno 106 is an eighties synth and only for eighties losers. From what I've seen and accomplished, the juno 106 is what you make of it. If you incorporate it's sounds into your mixes correctly, the possibilities are endless. People that say it's out of date have mis-used the juno and should sell it to someone who could incorporate it's millions of possibilities into they're own contemporary masterpieces. The juno 106 is an A+........KC

There are all these people around here who tell you that the JUNO is great for beginners. This is absolutely true. But I can´t understand why some people say that you should look elsewhere if you are not a beginner anymore. The JUNO still sounds better than any new synth you can by (aside from the Alesis Andromeda maybe), and that the JUNO is very easy to use is a big advantage for professionals as well as for beginners. I admit that the JUNOs possibilities are limited, but in these times of virtual analogues, vst-instruments and all that stuff, limitations can be very stimulating for your own creativity sometimes.

Juno 106 was the best synth of its time. (poly + midi). But as time goes by, it now seems to be out of date.

-It still remains great to learn how to use a synth. It can be use in a song for its nice dark pad/bass that really rock.

-But no need to say it is overpriced.

It worths a 2/5, if you strictly look at its specification, price and versatility of sounds. It worths a 4/5, if you're stuck in the 80' or if you're a newcomer willing to learn synth.

I got one as my first synth and feel great about it. Now I am looking for something more "accomplished", and try to sell mine.

Juno106 is a good synth but doesn't worth the money it priced.

I paid approx $105USD for my Juno106. It had 2 of the 80017A chips faulty on it and I was able to fix both by applying some heat to them. Now it seems to be working just fine , and I am now able to make some beautifull pads and basses. This synth is very warm sounding and the difference between it and the Juno60 is very slight, I heard them side by side. If you have a passion for analog synths this one won't dissapoint, but make sure there are no problems with the filter or DCO chips,they are in short supply, Ranger Electronics in Canada still have them $44USD(not cheap for me). Juno sounds fatter than my MS2000!
