How much deeper is the P5 on features?
I've not had a P5 but it seems like it's more feature swapping than deepening. (You lose a voice and MIDI but gain a noise generator,snappier analog envelopes and a more flexible wheel mod section.) I just meant that it seems like people start looking at improving affordable synths once the big boys get prohibitively expensive--like the JX mods once the Jupiters started getting too pricey.
From looking at the panel on the P5 it really didn't seem to include much more than the P600. I just assume before that it had many more waveforms and cross-modulation option, etc. I don't think it does.
Yeah, I think the JX3P had an upgrade a longish time ago... because I think Jupiter have always been prohibitively expensive.
Back to the OP. Did you just get the J106? Do you like it? Do you know about the voice chip issues and has yours been sussed out?
If you are happy with the 106 I bet a P600 would be nice other synth to have alongside it.... but maybe a Pro-One, Mopho or other mono might be better for you for basses and leads stuff since your kinda covered for pads with the Juno.
Also, I used a DSI TETR4 along with my friend's Alpha Juno and kinda had the best of both worlds until I got my P600.
