I like Cherry Audio DCO-106 better than the official 106 from Roland.

I might grab this. I had a 106 for a few years back when I was starting out making music. I really liked it for super resonant bass sounds. I was less enthralled with it's pads and usually used the cz-1 and the an1x for pads. If they nailed the low end then it would be worth the low price for me.

just try the free demo. I don't know if it NAILS the low end or not since I don't have a 106, but I compared the presets to the real 106 presets at synthmania and they were spot on with slightest variation that doesn't really matter

I'm gonna check this , the 2600 and the OB 8 voice out. I enjoyed playing with my old one especially with it's handy midi implementation, but people were paying big time money for them. I didn't keep it after the price tripled up. Same thing happened with my mini moog. When I listen back to the 106 basses though I'm still impressed. That's not the case with anything else analog I've owned. Can't wait to give it a spin. Do they have MPE implementation for this new line of synths?

Great "review" of DCO-106 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwN4B-826VE
I gotta say that this guy is a bit off with his reasoning. He talks about the dcos and then proceeds to fiddle with the analog VCF and VCA portion of the synth. The cool thing about dcos was better tuning and less drift allowing for a more solid sound and great temperature stability. Then if you wanna get wobbly with it you can add the lovely chorus. The filter and VCA are both OTA based analog designs (the same as on the juno 60). Just saying. None of this will matter in the slightest since it's a digital emulation, but that bit of the video bugged me.

I assume you mean around 5 minutes in. Yeah its muddy there but he's using the self-oscillation of the filter to demonstrate the stepping in the encoding mechanism I think but mentions the DCO. On the other hand its still a good review IMHO.
