So yeah.. I ramble on a bit in the beginning but the fact remains.... this is one pretty sweet little synth. Every manufacturer is getting on the mini synth bandwagon these days so there's no shortage to choose from. I was checking out the Yamaha new line but when I saw Roland was coming out with small versions of the Juno 106 and Jupiter 8, I was obsessed with them.
First off.. I knew they weren't going to be analog and second.. I knew they were going to be small... really small. So knowing those two things right off the bat I knew what my expectations were. The sound. As emulated synths go, they are endless versions of almost every synth you can imagine. Roland used their new ACB (Analog Circuit Behavior) technology in their new boutique line of synths and they sound AMAZING.
I had owned a Juno 106 for a bit back in the early 90s. But I sold it. I have missed that synth since the day it left my hands. But the JU-06 puts that nostalgia back in my hands and previewing the presets and moving the sliders around felt like old times. Watch the video for some more admiration of the JU-06.
