Actually,I have the Roland Hs-60,which is the same synth,save for the color scheme and internal speakers.I bought this item at the same time I bought my first sampler,and although I have other equipment,the Hs60 is the centerpiece.I find it extremely flexible,quick,well-built,and I can coax any sounds I need from it.Roland may have something with the new Jp-8000,yet I have not auditioned that piece yet.I'll probably stick to Roland,and get a Jupiter,or something even more powerful.I recommend it,and the price is right.With the Hs-60,it may be more flexible;I know I run sounds through it,and trigger my sampler while simultaneously triggering notes from the keyboard.Have a look,if you want something that delivers nice sweeps,grungy sounds,and some deep subbass.If you need to reach me,email me at

I had a Juno 106 as a house guest for a few months and I have to admit I wasn't expecting much from a single oscillator, one envelope, non-velocity-sensitive board. But man, this is one synth from the less is more school of design! The features it does have are very musical -- the envelope shape, the noise, the delayed LFO, the different poly modes, the high-pass filter, the envelope inversion. The PWM is also very effective in simulating a two-oscillator sound. The filter doesn't sound as rich as a Moog or a two-pole ARP, but it's still got a nice sound and does nice sweeps. Unlike a lot of gear where the factory patches suck, the Juno's patches do a good job of showing it off and really won me over. Things I didn't like so much: the side-to-side motion of the modulator thingie felt unstable, I prefer a front-to-back wheel where I can anchor my fingers on the side of the board for stability and operate the wheel precisely with my thumb. And after bring up a new patch, tweaking one of the sliders will probably not have the effect you want because its setting no longer matches the sound. But all in all, I was sad to see it leave when its visit was over.

great keyboard. you can get some real sweet sub-bass and lead parts out of this baby. I love tweaking it as I play. with all the new, digital, menu-driven synths, there is no performance value because you can't tweek!

Juno-106 is the universal synth and no matter what you are and what kind of music do you do, it fits you anyway. Me and some other Juno-106 owners decided to open a new Internet-site addicted to show the unlimited possibilities of this wierd machine and to help people get new sounds out of their synths. It will be a sort of a large collection of patches if all formats and styles. If you're a Juno-106 user and you love this synth just as we do, send us some of your patches. And as soon as we'll have real nice amount of sysexes a really great site about a really great synth shall open.

Ok, the 106 has been used and used and used... most of the time with high resonance and filter sweeps...

Here is my suggestion, turn off the resonance and you will have some of the most beautiful trance prog houseish basslines you have ever heard... and if you hit the right frequency you can blow your monitors with the bass so all those anti 106 folks can go have their juno 6s or whatever I will keep mine and its bass.

sounds way better than most modern analoguish synths and i guarentee you will NEVER recreate the sound of those old roland analogue filters with a new synth. it is just too unique..
