Recently picked up one of these and boy does it bring back memories. It's very simple and therefore not the most flexible of synths. But it has an inbuilt gorgeous sound, and a really superb chorus unit. The simplicity makes it irresistable to tweak all the sounds every time you use it. VERY well made - mine must be 15 years old and yet it looks like its just come out of the box!

I have used this recently and can say it does indeed have a "phatter" sound than my 106. Actually, I really think that the 106 and the 60 produce completely different flavors of the same sounds (sort of like when you match presets on the JP 8000 and the 8080). This can really produce that kind of indie rock Komeda sound, not to harsh, but not thin. I like thin too though, hence why I'm interested in the JP8000. In the end, I would have bought the 60 over the 106 if I heard them both.

The Juno 60 hhmmmm.....???? The JUNO 60 RULES Also!!!! Great little Synth.... Fantastic sounds...!!!!! FAb Chrous.... Awesome Arpegiator.... Cool Pitch bend lever..... VERY WELL constructed.... I would ONLY let it go for a Jupiter 8...... The Juno 60 is even MORE AWESOME with the JSQ-60 Sequencer! Remember Maddona's early work?? I think a great deal of it was Juno 60 with JSQ.....

I have the pleasure of playing one constantly, while im producing some work at a friends studio. Its Very big, and lots of nice wood. Very Classy. The sound is lush and full. And i can now say that the Juno-60 is rounder and punchier than the Juno-106. Aalthough the sounds of the pads and such werent anything that my Jp-8000 couldnt do, the Juno60 still has a life of its own, the sound just keeps on evolving. Someday, i wish to have this Juno in my setup...ahh yes..wicked ARP too..

I had a damaged Juno 60 for precisely 3 days, and look forward to replacing it soon. Although two of the three main circuit boards were cracked in half the Juno still tried to work, albeit at a very low audio range. (The VCA got fried... no amplification to the signal... oh yeah, the ADSR was nuked too.) Although I was only able to play with the DCO, the arpeggiator and the LFO the Juno still kicked out some great sounds.

What I want to stress is the formidable construction used on this synthesizer--two circuit boards were in HALF and the thing still wanted to work! And trust me, if you saw the condition of the shipping box, you would know that UPS really tried to destroy this thing. Most of the metal sliders were bent, and the wood paneling was seriously splintered--so it took a beating. Hats off to Roland for designing a hardy synthesizer, even if the circuit boards were not (in my way of thinking) properly housed against the metal chassis with braces instead of screws.

I cannot accurately comment on the sound at this point, since I was only playing with about 10% of the synthesizer. However, what I did hear (by straining) was warm and very thick. When I get it replaced, I will be able to submit a full, accurate report of my experiences with one. What I will vouch for is the survivability of the Juno 60 and the toughness of its wooden and metal frame.
