I picked up a mint Juno 6 a couple of years back for 400 quid. This is one of the synths that Roland got pretty much perfect with a simple well-laid out panel that allows a surprisingly diverse set of analogue polysynth sounds to be quickly and intuitively coaxed from it's basic architecture. IMO there's something really nice about single oscillator polysynths that mean the sounds don't get too fat or complex - features that work well in a mono synth quickly become mushy when you playing chords. The high pass filter is really useful in allowing some careful sculpting of the sound - essential when using the sub oscillator for stopping the lower mids from turning to mush. As many users here have commented, the j6 is a player's synth not a sound designers one. You won't find complex or evolving sounds but you will find a world of classic string, brass and classic synth pads just a few tweaks away. I don't think there are any bad sounds to be made with this thing and it makes an ideal first synth especially for 1980s sounds

This is my second synthesizer. £300 from eBay, it works a charm and just needed a little love from some multi-surface wipes. It arrived last week and I have never stopped tweaking those sliders and finding new and interesting sounds. More punchy than the Juno 106.

This is an instant 5/5 synth. Despite lacking in memory stoarage and any input for sequencing like it's younger brothers the 60 and the 106 it is still a great instrument for anyone at any level of skill. Besides, who needs sequencing? It's a keyboard for crying out loud! You are supposed to play thing, not turn it on and make your Intel play a merry melody for you.

The arpaggio function is simple to use and highly versitile. It can be easily synced to your computer too, just use a sample of the kick drum from a TR606 and send it to the Clock in port of the juno. When the kick is triggerd it plays one note of the arp, trigger the kick again and the next note is played and so on. It's a god send for super fast basslines and trance lines.

To keep this short, it's a great synthesizer, it's a great keyboard and it's a great addition to any studio with sounds to suit every genre! Turn on the chorus and be blown away from how phat this thing can be! I'm glad I chose this over the newer analogue modeling (aka. wannabe) synthesizers like the microkorg and the SH-201. :D

Wow, what can i say, I wanted an analogue synth to compliment my all DAW / Cubase SX & VA synths.. and this is a monster! No Presets, or MIDI is GREAT!!, I am so used to sitting in the studio, searching through bank after bank of presets, this is a breath of fresh air, just 4 hours with it today, and a made about 20 - 30 top notch sounds, you can always write down the params on a sheet, but once you get used to it, you know instantly what to do to get your sound, and whilst your tweaking it, you come accross other awsome sounds.

I tried it in my daw setup today, took a couple of live takes to get timing right, but i ended up using 4 parts from it on a track, (it actually gives your track a nice feel / swing, because of the tiny timing difference), and once you add some plug ins, this synth is so FAT!

Finaly this is the best REAL synth you can buy for your Money!!

good for dance, drum n bass, electro house, anything really. :-)

I've had this synth for 5 years. Just when I think I'm tired of it and I'll sell it, I turn it on and find something new. For all you old Juno pros, run this thru a multi-effect pedal and get a whole new synth!

I own a juno6 for about a year, this was my first analogue synth. At the time I really wanted to buy a polysix, but couldnt find it anywhere, so I bought the Juno... And I realized how great synth it is. I use it for studio works as well as for live performances/ I bought a midi/cv sync, so I can sync. it with my alesis drum machine and the roland mc 300 sequencer/ , with a microkorg above it ... It sounds just as I like it. I have got a group called: FORMAT: A-3, we play some kind of an electro-synthpop, and the juno is great for this our music. I am thinking about selling it, but I dont know... maybe I would be sorry...but I would really like to have a polysix... So if someone wants a juno and have a poly, I think it would be a good deal...really
