Tron's music can't have been created on the AlphaJuno1. Tron was released in 1982 (according to the Internet Movie Database), and the AlphaJuno1 did not then exist. I don't remember the precise year that it came out, but I bought one that year, along with the PG300, and still have them both. Who would have thought, at the time, that it would become a classic. :-)

This is the synth I lusted after all my youth. A friend had one, and I would go over to his house and the two of us would play away at this forever. It has great LFO modulation and the sounds are just so sweet--lush is the best way to describe it. The programing was easy enough for kids to understand, so it's pretty simple even without the programer. Also, it was so cool looking, a very clean and simple design. I would highly recomend this for those 80's sounds, from pads to waked out noises, quite a beastie. BTW, I read that Tron was done on the Crumar GDS, an additive monster.

Forget the PG-300, over priced and too 'rare'. I would highly suggest you get a Peavey 1600x or some other MIDI controller to control your Juno-1. I have one, it works great. [and yes, at one point I did own a PG-300, but sold it for an insane amount of $].

I've been dreaming of getting this synth for some time now, and i just finally scored one off eBay w/ Manual for $221

I've been admiring the sound that this baby can make for years! Nothing like a big phat 5 part chord loop through midi and its just Go time on the alpha-dial. I'm saving for the pg300 to make programming on the fly easier, but until then i'm very content with the Juno1 by itself. Its the most beautiful instrument i have layed ears on, and i can finally say i have one of my own. i recommend everyone at least tries out a juno1 they don't get much more underrated.

Aaaaaaahhhh, I just adore this one! I bought it new in 1986 ( My first real synth ). Got rid of it to get a KORG M1 in 1990 when all things went digital. But I missed my old friend so much that I just had to get it back. First I tried with a MKS-50, wich is more powerful in ways but, it didn´t have the right feel so I got a good old Juno-1 instead. I just love that alphadial. The coolest thing about it is that, if you set your sequencer to record sysex - it records every edit you make. It can recieve multiple parameters at once. Play with the resonance on one track. Then the ENV-MOD on the next and so on. Wonderful!!!! How is that for evolving tracks sonny? I have mine going through a BOSS SE-50 effectsrack and I like to put it through a nice pingpong echo. Record a simple loop on your sequencer and go to work on the alphadial. Then wake up two hours later wondering what happened. INSTANT TRANCE!!! This ones a KILLER and no misstake!
