+ Pitch Bend

+ MIDI IN OUT

UTILIZATION

Operation is simple, and the table showing diferents parameters that make up an analog sound is clear and simple to access, despite the fact that there have not knob for a function. I use MIDI to groundwater, and in unison mode for enormous bass (mind your préamlpis!). I never had the manual but if you have an analog hacked you will find quickly.

SOUNDS

This is where I am not at all agree with the description of audio-zine (a belief that once they have never tested some synths and were content to make a cut and paste). Car audio fanzine is all over the Juno 106 ensence beucoups that sounds worse than the Pro Eight (in my opinion of course!) And falls down a lot less than a Juno 106, and is much cheaper than listed a Juno 106!
A comprehensive synthetic sonoritées level, thanks to the fact that it was a polyphonic that can easily be used in mono, the chorus is enhanced integrated harmonics.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 2 years
Do I like most:
Monophonic both with 8 VCO, as polyphonic, and saz good implentation Midi bugue much less often than a Sixtrak. The chorus included
-What I like least: Well, I wish I had more potassium, but it would cost more.
Saw its rating one of the best quality / price I've ever seen! (When I think there are some who buys a Litlle Phaty to 1300 Euros!! Which is eight times less potent! But it's class is a Moog!?)
I had brought from Japan that cost me 400 Euros at all I think. If I needed to do it again I choose even more. (And yet I have a large collection of analogue). I keep mine because it is part of my dozen synths constantly connected to my sound card.
