Re: I just bought a NL2x. I'm sooooo disappointed...

I was looking at the 2x as a future addition to my juno 106. i know its just one persons opinion, but this has really made me question whether the nord can acheive the sounds of something like the jupiters or prophets. obviously i can;t turn this into a buyers guide thread, but advice is appreciated.

Nord Lead???

Right, i have been looking at adding another synth to my setup to complement a Juno 106. i want to continue learning subtractive synthesis and a virtual analogue such as the Nord Lead seems perfect.

Juno 106S Trouble..

Well im not surprised by this but i think one of those terrible chips is failing on me. After 10 minutes playing (warm up time i guess) i get hanging on voice 4. (the note keeps playing at a quieter volume for ever on voice 4, just making sure to myself that i understand what is happening) Anyways. ...

Re: How to acheive this sound?

Re: How to acheive this sound?

wow thanks for your help. just out of interest, can i buy an arpegiattor that would be comaptible with the juno 106, or would it require a different synth, or a seperate midi controller, plugged into the juno.

Thanks again!

I can see that, but i sort of slimmed down my reasoning against the microkorg so i didnt scare people away with the length of my post :P I dont want to turn this into a microkorg deabte, and i fully respect it, but from my point of view a Juno is more hands on and as an ex piano player the keys are ...

You would recommend them then?

I've always been a bit scared of being scammed on that sort of service. i.e sending off money and getting nothing or a really terrible quality item. (HAH i really didnt need to explain that. oh well)

Im sure I will :D

Just need to actually get one...

There is a Juno 6 currently at £260 on ebay uk!!! Thats (a little) ridiculous.

Its not even in great condition :o

I'd thought prices would fall with the financial scare mongering.

WOW thank you for the quick replies. I agree with you phenom and i am definitely looking to save a bit more and get a juno 60.. it is worth the extra cash.

And JMP thank you so much for those prices, they do vary alot, but its great to have a guideline.
