The Roland Juno 106 is a great fun synth. It's great for making Kraftwerk or Jean Michell Jarre type vintage synth sounds.. It comes with two very nice chorus effects, except the second chorus is noisey and I never use it.. I find the first chorus is excellent and it's almost always on.. Occasionally I pump this unit through some digital effects.. a favorite is the Digitech 2112 studio guitar system. I can program in some really intense sounds... One of the greatest features of the Juno 106 is that you always get a new sound every time you program it.. You can find em' dirt cheap in pawn shops too.!! I spend hours with this thing.. if this synth has one flaw, it's that it can be to prominent and can eat up the entire bandwidth of a piece.. it's hard for it to not draw all the attention..probably becuase it really shines with pad type sounds.. and it's just as hard to turn down the volumes when it's making really psychedelic leads.. - you just want it keep on going.. I give it 5/5..!!! Get one today if you can becuase they are getting harder to find and more expensive all the time.. mine is mint condition by the way (cheasy grin)

I got my Juno, which is my first real synths about a week ago and I stayed up till 5:30 a.m. playing with it. Very fun and easy to program, and has a good range of sounds. Does leads, bass, pads, very well. I also got some cool piano, organ and harpsichord sounds out of it, as well as weird noises. Mono mode is fun. A *great* beginners synth, for all music, but especially techno, industrial or other electronic-centered music

The 106 is easy to use and very immediate but come on, the best synth, give me a break! IMHO it doesn't sound as nice as a Juno 6/60, it's not built like a 6/60 and for a MIDI synth not to respond to velocity (i.e. you can't control VCA or VCF) well I'm afraid that limits it already limited uses a touch too much.

Good for a first synth / introduction to subtractive synthesis though (not meaning to sound too patronising - honest!).

I got it a few weeks ago and I can't stop playing with it! It's a great machine to sample off of if you track on the computer (if you do you know what I mean), and it's fun to see what wierd noises I can get out of it! Take this with a grain of salt, since it's my first synth, but I love it! I paid $400 US for it, and I definitely think that it's worth the money.
