David Churcher: The Juno-106 is a really basic straightforward analog synth. All of its functions are on separate front panel sliders and knobs and the architecture is very simple, so it's an ideal beginner's synth. The sounds you can get out of it are a bit limited but they all sound great. It has digital oscillators so it doesn't go out of tune. You can combine pulse and sawtooth waves with a sub-bass oscillator that runs an octave lower. There's a high-pass filter which has even more bass boost, and a low-pass filter which resonates to self-oscillation and has a really smooth tone to it, unlike some digital filters. There's a really noisy chorus effect that generates pseudo-stereo output, and one of the earliest MIDI implementations ever produced.
