Really? How do you figure that one out? R&D for the Chroma commenced in the Autumn of 79, a full year after the P5 first appeared on the market. Yeah, but they had most of the pieces they needed by 1977, according to Phillip Dodds, and they could have built the Chroma earlier had not all of the eng...

Gateway, schmateway! I went straight for the hard stuff! In 1984 I convinced a guy that I knew who had a band that I played keyboards (total lie) and that I owned a synth (even bigger lie). Since his band was desparate for a keyboard player, they hired me on the spot, without an audition. That eveni...

I've had one since 1985 and I still don't think I've gotten everything out of it. A few thoughts: People who say the sound is "thin" haven't spent enough time working with it, IHMO. Ia a Juno-60 fatter? Hard to say as I haven't spent much time with a 60. But I've always been happy with the 106 in th...
