I just love my Juno 1. We had a Juno 2 at school back in 1987, and I got hooked on the sound then. I love the 'swooshy' sounds you can get out of it (like CosmoSweep, P-55, but I've invented my own since then as well), and the really warm analogue string sounds.

Hiya CreativeFSV, fancy seeing you here...

Hmm, interesting, I owned an alpha juno for about a week before returning it from where it was bought, compared to even my lowly juno 106 it sounded very reedy and tinny to me. I'm actually surprised you guys really like these boards, to me it was thin and useless as it got lost in almost every mix, I don't think the alpha's have enough presence in their sound. In my experience an alpha makes a 106 seem fat in comparison -- do yourself a favor save a few more bucks and get something useful such as a Juno 6/60/106 or even an Oberheim matrix6 -- they're certainly much better sounding than the underpowered alpha juno's.

my 2 cents, Nubey

*Three stars -- points shaved for sound quality alone -- as they're dead easy to use and look pretty cool too, the aplha juno 1 is really small for a keyboard.

I honestly love my Juno1 I've had it for about 2 years now and I got it for 60 bucks at Guitar center. I was freaking out when I saw it because these people obviously don't know what it is. I heard people talk crap about it and I'd just sit back and laugh because these are the kind of people that rely on presets. Anyway, programming indeed is a breeze. I'm so glad I haven't sold mine even though I have been tempted to do so.

Yes, yer all right, the AJ1 wasn't the synth used on Tron. It wasn't out until 85/86? I don't know how the rumour got started, prolly because of the nifty 'tronblast' fx preset on the synth. I believed this was true for awhile until I read somewhere that many of the movie fx were made with a moog modular. But that maybe mis-information too. I'm not sure what the music itself was done on, maybe it was the Crumar GDS, that and the Conbrio system were popular synths for soundtracking. Anyone know fer sure, and where you can read about it?

The AlphaJuno is a great multipurpose synth...if you want a Jx8p, but are short of the money, an aj1 or synth+10 will give you what you desire.
