Each to their own and all that, but for what I want, it's actually GREAT for live use - anyway, what are patch sheets for? It seems odd that the Juno 60 often fetches over £100 more just because of patch storage... this baby pushes you to *master* the thing, I can come up with most sends just off the top of my head and a bit of knob tweaking, it's easy peasy. Mine was £120 which I gather is on the cheap side, I was gutted though cos I saw one in a free-ads paper for £50 the same week but had been sold (surprise!). On reflection I think if I had paid double that I wuold still be happy. It's like a fun toy and a powerful music / FX creation tool all in one. And wooden sides are just..... STYLISH ;)

Honestly I can't think of a more bargain analog synth than this. It roars when you want it to, and does 'smooth' very well too. check out Unison mode.. EEK!! The versatile arpeggio also rocks. I can't think of a sound I haven't managed to nail yet. OK OK I am sure Jupiters, Minimoogs and so on are *better*, but sod it, this is funky as hell for such a low price.

I really really love it.... did you guess? :-)

Please go and buy one. Right now.

I need info about the Juno 6, a service manual or something similiar. I also like to have any info about the connector on the left side of the main circuit board, if im not wrong Roland used to sell some kind of interface to hook up to that connector (don't know if it was midi). Anyway, if I get sufficient information I will design a midi interface for the Juno 6 and I will give the design away for free. If you have info on the Juno 6 please contact me.

In an earlier review of this synth i pointed out some of its shortcomings and suggested that it was limited soundwise and poor value for money. On reflection, I feel that I was unfair to the synth. The sounds are accessable and good. Also, when compared to other analogue synths out there, it is good value for money. £220 for a minter is a good deal and I know others who have had equal luck. I still think that the 60 and 106 are better deals, thogh, as they say, the more it does, the more there is to go wrong!

a great poly synth for people who just want to make loads of weird sounds, but limited for live use because of the lack of memory. I got my one for £220 and it's in perfect condition and sounds mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...lovely.

I'm not sure how to triger the arpegio input yet, but I'm thinking of converting to midi (I'm week)

A True Classic. Got mine back in the early 80's . Cost about $700.00 Australian back then. It was my first synth and I still use it in my studio at home to create many wierd and wonderful sounds that I don't think I could create that easily on any other synth. Not ideally suited to a live situation due to no patch memories but great in the studio where you have time to experiment and be creative. No midi but can be converted with the kenton midi retrofit. Mine isn't but I usually sample the sounds into my akai so it doesn't bother me. I will love my Juno 6 forever!
