If you can find one, Buy it!!! they go from around 120 to 250.00 U.S Dollars. the sounds are unreal. this synth would be good for just aboutb any kind of dance music, however, it doesn't have MIDI capabilities, so $ or 8 track recoreder ready or sample the sounds that make.. I paid 150.00 for mine and I now use it more than other synth I have just for the pure pleasure of the old analog sounds that you can create. This synth has only sliders to control VCF,VCA, ENV, Dco and so on. but it coannot save sounds ( no Patches ) so remember what you did to create the sound again.

I bought one of these as my first real synthesizer less than a year ago. It was a great introduction to analog-style synthesis, and i love the sound of it. It's very clean and smooth sound, with a rich filter that sounds great with the resonance turned way up. I like the fact that it has analog sliders, so you're not constrained to to a limited resolution on each paramater, as with the jx-8p or korg dw8000. I sold mine, however, due to lack of midi or cv or dcb or any sort of control, because I'm really not much of a keyboard player. I'd like to get a juno 60 and midi/dcb converter, since the 60 is pretty much the same synth with patch memory and dcb input.



Oh, yeah, if hold key transpose while turning it on, and then put the arpeggiator in 'up' mode, it stacks all 6 oscillators. It's very cool sounding, it has a very different character to it than any other poly-synth I have that allows you to stack the oscillators. Can make some nice big filter-rez-only kick drums like that, too.

Hey, I own a Juno 6 and I feel I am one of the luckiest people in the world to have one.

I bought mine about 6 months ago and needed a vintage analogue synth to round out my gear stash.

Turns out that the versatility of a unit like this is amazing! Being able to have that many realtime options for changing your sound is excellent for live play.

I have tried many an analogue synth trying to find a good one, but the full range of frequencies this can deliver is amazing. A much fuller sound than my MC-202.

Definately recommended for the FAT sounds it can produce, but is amazing for the amount I paid... $175 Canadian.

Just amazing, the sounds are fat and meaty. I paid

$100 US dollars for mine (what a hell of a deal)!!!!

Although it doesn't have midi it still rules. I think

it actually sounds better than the juno 106. I have

found myself using it in every thing that i am doing

right now.

There is two sockets on the back, one for the appegiator and one for the filter, does anyone know if these can be controlled by CV or something like that?

Is there anywhere I can find a manual on the web?

I've had my Juno 6 for about six months and I can't say enough about how versatile this digital/analog hybrid is.

Crazy fat basses, a great arpeggiator, and a beautiful VCF. They were made from '81 to '83, they are fully analog except for the more stable

DCO (digitally controlled oscillator) as opposed to a voltage controlled one. It was the first of the Junos, followed by the Juno 60 (with memory), then the Juno 106 (with more memory and MIDI)

Then came the Alpha junos. I would have to give this keyboard a high mark for sound quality but you can only go so far without MIDI.

TURN YOUR JUNO-6 INTO A SIX-OSC-STACKED MONOSYNTH!

Put your Juno into 'Unison' mode by holding down the Key Transpose button while switching the synth on. Then set the arpeggiator to 'UP'stand back and press a key

To get it out of the test mode, turn the synth off and on again

This operation is part of the synth's built-in factory test mode

It's a good synth, and for the money, it's great value, but fat and warm? I don't think so! Not to say that it sounds bad - I personally don't subscribe to the whole 'fat sounds are better sounds' philosophy - in fact it has a very good sound, but compared to almost any other analogue synth (whether mono or poly) it sounds quite thin and cold, though certainly not as thin as a digital synth such as the DX7 (which is also a cool synth but for different reasons).
And I'm getting really sick of people saying it does really fat basses! What rubbish! It does go very low, but it certainly isn't a thick and powerful bass.
Sorry, I do like this synth a lot, but I wish I could read a review of a synth for once that could actually criticise certain aspects of the unit. I don'tthink there's any synth out there that's 100% amazing!
Someone once described the Juno to me as having a "feminine" sound quality. At the time, I thought he was just talking pretentious shit, but I realise what he means now. It's not an aggressive sound at all as opposed to many other analogues. It has a sweet, bright, swirly quality to it.
I've had mine for nearly six years and I'm not about to get rid of it in a hurry. Buy one of these and it's a keeper.

I've been into analogue since 1972. Had a Juno 6 when I was 26, always thought I'd get one
Paid 400 for one of ebay recently. It's 27 years old at least and still going strong. I've also got a minimoog so the Juno has a lot to live up to. The Juno IS a fat, big sound when you want it and mellow and subdued when you want it. Thick, open and spacious with chorus 2, it is a great classic, unmistakeably 70's sound-there is nothing like it today, software emulators don't come close. Most classic sampled synth sounds are a moog or a Roland anyway, and some of them are a Juno 6.
The arpeggiator is brilliant, the filter is powerful and steep giving a great self oscillation.
Wonderful! It won't ever be sold on!

just bought mine from gumtree for 300. I love the appegiator. If u have a multi out soundcard or drum
machine ect ie a 808 or mpc , you can send a sound source to trigger the rate of the appegiator, So who
needs midi?? I will never sell it.
