I have to admit I've only tried the demo version (played with it for 2 days), but I will be ordering the full version asap.

JunoX can't do everything, but if you want to do any hardhouse, trance, anthemic dance tracks then this synth is an absolute MUST have.

It has a very full and fat sound - perfect for stabs and hard edged pads, or as lead lines and a good range of basses (although the lower to upper mids are it's real strong point). It has an amazing set of filters on it - it can be very versatile with some careful tweaking to pull out some of the fatness. The formant filters are great for special FX, and the specials are huge, or you can do basic boingy sounds if you want. This synth is what the Alpha Juno should have been (but Roland cocked it up with lack of filters(s)).

I use a Juno 106, Alpha Juno and 202 amongst others, and the JunoX honestly beats these (with maybe the exception of the 202 for acidy subs). Junos are sought after and well used, but JunoX can do far greater ranges of sounds, and generally has an awful lot more power to it.

My only complaints are the LFO seems to not do too much, and the filter loses alot down in the basses - but JunoX isn't really a bass synth, and it more than makes up for that by the sheer power of the mids.

If you're into presets, it would take alot of time to get bored with these, and if you're into programming, it will repay your efforts many times over - and it's well laid out - you don't need a manual at all. Another VSTi that makes me play for pleasure.

$30 !? If that's still the price, it's a bargain - my wallet is out already.

Not a do-it-all synth, but essential for dance music in most forms. It is one of the most analogue sounding VSTis I've heard so far, and I will use it in preference to most of my hardware synths, including most of the collectable ones. It's so good, you need good Eq - simply to take out some of the fatness for a balanced mix.

Technoheads can't go wrong with it.
