  1. Marc – you are a wealth of knowledge. There is nothing like the sound of a well crafted patch on an analog synth and I’ll take a Roland analog any day.

    Of course learning to craft a quality patch on an analog synth is tougher than loading pre-sets into a VSTi so I guess that it might be boring for some.

  2. My only criticism of this vid is that he didn’t show how you can make more “digital” or”additive” type sounds using the tuned filter resonance and keyboard following. That’s one trick I use a lot to get a broader range of sounds. Still, great stuff here

  3. I bought my Juno 6 when it first came out(so long ago!), and still have it in pristine working order. I used it as my main keyboard for several years.

    The filter is its strongpoint, and does a great job of beefing up the otherwise slightly thin DCO.

    It is a deceptive synth, looking quite simple, but with careful tweaking, capable of a wide range of sounds. The filter really helps here, with the slightest nudge changing a few harmonics making all the difference.

    I’m lucky enough to have the range of Viruses, Waldorfs, and Novations (and a host of soft-synths), but the Juno still makes it onto my recordings.
