I really like this little synth and I have recommended it to a few people. I would not want it as an only synth but for the price it is a great value and addition to my collection. It is not a “do everything” but that is not what I was after. The JunoX2 does have a unique sound and the Formant, Digital and Comb oscillators are great. While many other VSTi’s have affects sections the JunoX2 does not need effects to sound good. I also like the Randomize function and it is easy to tweak what ever pops up into a new pad.
I do have one big complaint. The pitch bend setting is hardwired, or programmed, at one octave. I am used to a 1 step range for pitch bend and the 1 octave setting makes this VSTi almost useless for leads. I would love to see this plus volume per oscillator added to the next version.
I run JunoX2 within Sonar II with DirectiXer 2 with no problems. It is very stable. I give this soft synth a Must Buy.
