    UTILIZATION

    The config is pretty simple though tedious:
    We choose the parameter / on the rule / We change / We readjusted ... is long enough
    The manual is clear but we can have synthetic qq bases it will be passed very quickly.
    As for the South I could not test due to lack of equipment to link ..

    control the "live" is quite limited is through the menu and then turn the dial.
    There are all the same facade in four shortcut: MOD Speed ​​/ Depth / Brightness / Length
    The brightness affects the Cutoff
    Length Alonge shortcut or the overall
    However, if one of the chosen parameters is very low (0 to 2) the 4 button has no effect is pretty gallery: the shortcuts that I supposont envelope to the max then I switched to the cutoff to increase and I want to lengthen again the envelope, there is a good chance it will be changed because certain parameter reaches 0 aront rise again and do more

    SOUNDS

    This is where it's interesting:
    Sounds, away from realism are beautiful (a condition that always keep the Chorus, even slightly)
    can be of very good low
    notament thanks Chord Memory Shifts Who to play according to one key:
    by adding a fifth and octave or can get ultra low fat and very typical.
    on the other hand to make very serious and well-Bass has a round can of evil, it becomes hoarse
    It is doing no evil Lead and Tablecloths

    The envelope has 8 parameters allows modulation furious (notably in the Aplique the filter).
    Too bad that there have not a second one may sometimes it embarrassing to have the same envelope on the filter and VCA.
    Also damage the LFO is a bit lightweight at once you can not do too much sounds like very complex sounds effects ...
    It also lacks a keyboard with velocity (although he manages to MIDI)

    The Chorus is Magifique is the main strength of this synth
    We do not control the speed, going from very light (almost invisible) to the large modulation raging all through the soft.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I bought it at the beginning of 2008
    this is my first analog
    I am absolutely a fan of the chorus and the Chord Memory
    I like less the digital interface which produces a staircase effect not necessarily genial.
    Can opportunities modulation But for that price it's normal (especially when you have 6 voice polyphony)

    Despite its small default this synth does not pastiche large analos
    Are memeory chord chorus and make it an instrument rather interesant.
    The value for money is more than beneficial
    I paid mine 120 euros, that price was not even an arranger nine

    The best analog digital control

    Roland JUNO-1Published on 08/20/11 at 06:23
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    polyphonic analog synth with digital control.
    symilaire quite a juno 106 in the sounds but without the knobs.
    With the PG300 that way analog control in midi is a joy.

    UTILIZATION

    very simple in terms of storing sounds.
    The sound editing is done with a menu but may be added to the PG300 and manual control with sliders. This makes life easier and allows editing in the live game.

    SOUNDS

    Superb. Very good Roland. The sounds are the same as on previous models because only the control of the oscillator digitally change. It is the 100% analog round and warm.
    Roland chorus is a killer here ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    An excellent acquisition and a synth whose coast is expected to rise because few people know it's an analog synth seen her look. It is indispensable in the home studio as perfectly fit into the mix.

    Analog synth with 6-voice polyphony, three digitally controlled oscillators (digital/analog hybrid synth)? Basic routing and sound possibilities. It's a minimalist synth. No encoders (except the big alpha dial) only buttons (DX7-like)...

    The keyboard is not velocity sensitive but you can control the velocity via Midi with a master keyboard... same thing regarding aftertouch.

    UTILIZATION

    Bothersome sound editing. You'll have to be patient. There's a PC editor software available (PG300 Emulation), which works very good and is easy to use as VST plug-in. It works fine for me.

    Thanks to the endless alpha dial that allows you to accurately control parameters and the fast access buttons, you can even use it live (especially for the cutoff). The alpha dial is accurate and pleasant.

    SOUNDS

    The sound is the main asset of this synth. It sounds great and the chorus effect is nice. You'll only get simple but quite effective sounds (few modulation possibilities).

    The presets are a bit outdated so I deleted them (except the famous "Hoover") to create my own presets.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Good sound. Good value for money (the secondhand price is rather low, it was even cheaper than my DX7!). What else do you want?

    It's a good deal.
