Roland Juno-6 w/ Tubbutec Ju-66 MIDI upgrade
Not so small, polyphonic beast.
Roland Juno-6 and 60 (they are the same internally minus memory locations) are unbelievably lush sounding instrument. Besides, they are a fruit of Roland’s extremely smart engineering – they are very easy to program and the entire panel is very sensibly laid out. It just welcomes you to program this inspiring machine.
It’s quite hard to imagine that it took the 6/60 long years before achieving that status it has nowadays.
Tubbutec upgrade really brings out a true monster in the Ju-6/60. It allows for flexible MIDI control and has a numner of very smart performer’s functions.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Is the Juno-6 easy to program or will I sooner or later need patch memories?
A: Being a Juno-6 (with Ju-66 upgrade) user myself, I am a strong advocate of this instrument. Unless you really need a lot of memory locations at hand the 6 does one, very important thing (apart from sounding wonderful) – it forces you to think. All the time. It encourages trial and error, it lets you create transition sonds as you travel from one patch into another. You can never get lazy with the Juno-6.
Q: Is the Juno-6 better than the Juno-106?
A: Only if apples are better than oranges. Even though they look more or less the same (functionality-wise), they are very different internally, which results in a completely different sound. It can be said (but it’s only an estimate) that the 106 is more of an 80s sounding, funky machine, while the 6/60 have the 70s brassy, string-ey vibe. If only you can, test both before making a decision.
Q: Do the 6 / 60 suffer from the same voice problem as the Juno-106?
A: No, they don’t. They are build around different ICs and thise issue does not apply here.
