there are interesting reviews of the 106 here. everyone seems to either love it to death or hate it with a passion. my thoughts are... you can have all those new trendy "dance" synths like the AN1x, i'll keep my 106. i'll admit that the 106 can't do stuff like the nord, but for the current street price, nothing can cut the juno. i've used one live for years and i'll continue to use it for years to come.

To set the record straight you can control the VCF/VCA by midi - set the function knob on the back to three, any slider you touch sends out sys-ex to your sequencer! Record this an playback all you tweaks in real time! Modular synthesis on the cheap!! :) Or you can use the pitch bend to control the filter. I love this synth - if it had two oscillators, it would give the Mini-moog a fair kicking when it comes to bass sounds. Bass sounds just speak soulfully on this synth - its a great synth for building a foundation of track. I use it for everything, kicks, basses, 303 emulations (use the sys-ex for accent type effects!), pads. I've owned examples over the years - my current Juno106 is mint, and it sounds much fatter and punchier than my first one. None of the softsynths I own come close to the rounder smooth tone. The only thing I hate about it is the portamento - its linear one, I prefer the expontential rate glide on the Mini-moog and my Akai ax-73.

Easy to use, versatile, nice sounding and good-looking. It's a classic. The overall sound of the 106 is not very harsh or rough, it has nice and harmonic 80's quality to it. But that doesn't mean that it produces a killer bass sound or a self- oscillating mayhem every once in a while. Every studio should have one.

FAT FAT FAT A truly great synth! I now know why everyone went ballistic over it! I just got one..pulled it out of the shipping box.. and sat there for hours just digging the warm tones. Yes..it does have a limited range of sounds..but every single one sounds good! Kick it into monophonic mode...earth rattling basses! Lush cords..screaming leads with a little distortion. Now..if I could just land a Jupiter-8 down the road!

The Juno 106 was the first analog synth that I purchased. It has remained my favorite. This thing is a pad "dream machine". I haven't written a single track since I got this unit that it wasn't used. It is a simple to use, nice sounding synth. I highly recommend it, especially for beginners.
