My first polysynth I ever owned back in 1984 at the age of 14....ah....memories... I sold mine to my brother for $150, and he still has it and loves it! Of all the Juno line, the Juno-6 is the best. No MIDI, no memory, simple analog control, little need to change it, it's sound is so rich. I really think the Juno-6 is one of the most under-rated keyboards of its time, while the 106 lacks everything the Juno 6/60 stood for. I wonder if he'll sell it back to me for old times' sake...

My first analog synth (had it around 1988), bought if for $150, loved it to death. Its sound has a solidity and bottom end which is missing from its main competitor (the Korg Polysix). The arpeggiator is extremely inspiring, and the chorus and subosc make sure you're not stuck with one oscillator thinness.

This is one of the simplest, most clearly laid out synths, the best as a first synth (a Jupiter-6 is even better, but more $$$). Shame about the inflated prices of the Juno's. I'd say the 6 is worth $150, the 60 is $50 more for the memories, and the 106 is $300 for its 128-patch memory, MIDI and general good looks.

The 6 had at least one thing which was dropped on the subsequent 60 and 160: env-modulation of PWM, which was nice for pads and some 'flanged' bass-sounds.

One of Roland's finest moments.

the control that is referred to simply controls the arpegiator sync, that is the only midi->CV function of the Juno 6. Whoever bought mine for $200 Smacks back in '87, I want it back, please overnight it. I am in the works for a Juno 60 and if this deal falls through, I'm breakin' skulls.

Someone wrote here that the juno 6 can be controlled by a MIDI>CV converter. How can this be so when there is no CV/Gate jack? The Juno 60 can be controlled by a MIDI>DCB converter, but the juno 6 does not feature DCB either. Who gives a fuck about MIDI anyway? Even if you want to use it with a computer, you don't need MIDI. Just use a program like Cool Edit Pro.

Ok, I admit, I don't have 50 keyboards. However, among all those I played with, this is the only synth I know that sounds always (maybe 90% of the time) better with no sound processor. The built-in chorus is enough. No echo, no reverb needed, no distortion. Sounds good enough, deep enough, mysterious like this.
