Had to look out for a mint condition Juno-6 for a while, but now bought one for 350 GBP. Amazingly, when I compared its string and brass patches to a friend's Jupiter-8, we both thought the Juno came frighteningly close. This version sounds much warmer than the Juno 106, and although it's limited programming, the sounds it makes are top-class analogue polysynth. Forget all your VA's. I am glad I have mine, as they are getting more expensive by the year.

i have "synths" such as the Korg EMX and MicroKorg (stinking with analog-wannabe-ness), which i use for drummer replacement and bassist replacement in my band and blah blah blah. I just purchased this anti-paperweight.

This is a great analog (circuit-wise) master keyboard with DCO (digitally controlled Osc, for stability). But uh oh..(!)... there are no MIDI ports! where did they go? they were never there, child. "i gottsta plays the keys sir????!!??" YES. you PLAY this keyboard, not sequence or something, you spoiled children. ...and turn knobs. and push levers. and press buttons. all in all, the sound is punchy and clean (unless you add its ultra-rad noise generator). noisy chorus is there. limited, but there. just being seen playing this makes you look smart and sexy, and aged. if you have one, treat her well. if you are looking for a master board, GET THIS NOW. i got mine for 299($) in new condition with an industrial-grade case. cant beat THAT with a ten foot stick. or maybe you can...

***when you can't choose a keyboard to spend your mommie's money on, choose an "old" one.***

can't go wrong. everything from the 80's rocked. err..

Hey, to all you synthfreaks out there, get this analog beauty now!!!

This is a very underrated synth. There is only one synth in the world that is very cheap and delivers high quality analog sounds and that's juno 6!!! And if you use the PWM correctly ( modulate from envelope ) you could get a flanger like effect. So two effects ( chorus and flanger ) on a vintage synth? Where can you get that for such cheap money? And which synth can make such thick and warm sounds with one dco? You name it. I've just got mine and wich synth can make sounds just as easy as an organ? You're right, the Juno 6. People that hate the machine are the people who do not know how to play a simple note. That's just the driving force of the Juno 6. The awesome arpeggio and outstanding sounds makes you feel like playing all day long. It really motivates and inspires you if you are muscician in hart and soul!!!

Just to correct some erroneous info, the Juno-6 has multiplexed front-panel controls that go through the microprocessor just like the 60 or 106. In fact, the only difference internally between the 6 and the 60 is the microporcessor controller and the addition of the DCB port, all the voicing circuitry is the same.. It's all digitally controlled, but at the component level it's analogue through and through--digital just adds stability.

Soundwise, the Juno-6 is fantastic. Nice, punchy envelope, good resonant filter, though it's no MS-20 competitor. Pads, lead synth lines, and bass ooze from this synth. Organs can be had, but take a little more effort, strings will all sound very synthy, but sometimes that's what you want. Brass sucks. The chorus thickens things up nicely, although it's a bit noisy, and it sounds as BBD as it is. It's a nice extra to have it on-board though, and you won't find many other synths of this vintage with ANY built-in effects. My only real gripe with the Juno-6 is it only has one envelope generator per voice. Having the same envelope for the filter and the amp kinda sucks. But hey, restrictions in equipment make you a better synthesist and sometimes make you more creative. :)

very musical, if limited soundwise. but it´s super-easy to come up with inspiring patches that make you just play away for hours. as with many rolands, including the jupiters, subtlety is the key to get non-clichéd sounds out of it. strings and pads sound oh so nice and shmooove that i often prefer it over its bigger siblings (jupes), only goes to show, dco´s can sound excellent... resonance is beautiful, far superior over the jx series synths.
