The most usable synth ever made. Programming can be done blindfolded and you'll still come up with a cool sound. Instant slider access allows for cool parameter tweaks. Mostly good at plain vanilla analog sounds with a very cool squirty filter that makes it pretty useful in techno. Loves FX processing thanks to the somewhat static nature of its non-chorused sounds. Chorus is noisy but typical Roland excellent. Very deep bass. Convenient and durable too.

I don't think its the most complex synth in the world. But I use mine on every track. It just seems to fit in places. I wouldn't give it up just for that reason.

this was my first synth; i paid $400 for it and it was worth every cent! any of these old synthesizers can make wicked sounds, you just have to play with them some...don't think i've EVER played an analog synth that i couldn't get some wicked sounds from! (hell, my dad's mono/poly only had 1 oscillator because the others were trashed and i still had hours and hours of fun with it!)

i've used it as the ONLY synth on sooooo many tracks (doing a bassline, looping it in a sampler, overdubbing more stuff, etc) and you can get such a wide range of sounds from it, with this, a sequencer, and decent audio sequencer you can make great dance, techno, industrial....i've made shitloads of tracks with only this thing and Making Waves...can't knock it except for one thing: nick's right, the controls aren't too's fine for filter twiddling and whatnot; the only time i notice it is when i'm making a sub bass sound with only the filter self-oscillating and no oscillators going..can't tune it because one click of the fader is too low, and the next step is too high...but other than that it's KILLER.

I had picked up a Juno 106 brand new in 1984 for $1090.00! I sold it for $475.00 in 1988 to buy an M1(what a fool).

I just picked up another one for $360.00 and I have to say I not tired of it yet ! It is still one of the PHATESSS synths around mon!

And I'm real tired of these "Wanking Wanna Be Techno Fools" saying that its thin sounding or that its overated.

If you don't like sell it and let someone who knows how to Program it take it off your hands!! And by the way what the hell do you

part time and hobby-ist know anyway?(just kidding hahahaaaa)Peace,The Gasman

I've had mine for years now and, I must say when I first got it I found it hard to place in the mixes I was doing. Now I'm using it more and more. I find that it really excels at analog pads and noce evolving filter lines ,not 303ish but more flexable.

I'm really beginning to get into it after all this time

It's a bit overated but an overall good synth. If you spend some good time tweaking you can get some great sounds. Do not spend more then $450 for this machine.
