Agree Richard - Ive found looking at prices that have gone nuts.
I'm surprised that people pay such ridiculous money.

Made me look at new synths - the Analog Keys is where I'm heading.
Bugger vintage nostalgia - I'm not looking anymore for any old Rolands.

Compared to other synths I've been watching, $998 is not bad at all.
Anyway agreed, I'm trying to get out of vintage synths as the maintenance is turning out to be a headache.

...And there are so many really great new analog synths coming onto the market.
with amazing features galore.
Onwards to the future!

I've sorted myself out ... no more hunting Juno's, no more romantic dribbling over the old stuff..
Analog Keys - is my chosen path.

I'm waiting on the Roland AIRA System 1.
I have TR-8 and it's actually very good.
Presumably System 1 might eventually include a 'plug out' Juno 106/60.

Forget the Juno 60, I just loaded my Juno 106 with the new Kiwi-106 processor board. Multiple envelope generators, multiple LFO's, everything clock sync'd, sequencers, arpeggiators, pattern generator, interval latch, you name it. And now, even better, a new mylar top panel with all of the new controls marked, check this out, they look awesome!

(sorry if I sound like an add, I have been waiting for this for a long time. I will do a review soon!)

The Kiwi stuff is cool.

I'm looking forward to what Murray does next.

Update:
Well, I went down the Analog Keys route.
Now i have:
4 x fully analog synths with individual tracks + 4 step sequencers, each able to run a different length, swing, micro timings, track transpose, accent and slide, 128 patterns w/up to 64 steps, parameter locks..
1 x CV gate track/sequencer - for my other old synths.
6 x Arpeggiators - each able to run different lengths...
5 x stereo outs,
2 x inputs for external processing.
Assignable omnidirectional joystick
Full midi control, plus USB
And very soon, the whole machine will be able to be run, & be edited on a computer, as a plug in, plus processing/filtering of tracks in the computer through it!

SO - I'm extremely happy that I did not go down the old synth road again...
This machine is a monsta!

Just under retail in $AU - around $2.3k, as there is a backlog of people waiting for them, no deals really.

# Also - I forgot to add that it has its own dedicated FX track too - killer delays, reverbs, distortion etc - plus 2 dedicated LFO's to affect the FX parameters.
Its mind boggling how much it can do... and it really sounds mega!

Finally someone has made a modern analog synth that I like.
Every new synth I have heard over the last decade or so has left me cold as far as sounds,features & useability.
Ive been waiting forever for an analog synth with lots of individual arpeggiators, that then interact with step sequencers & LFO's, also controlling CV and gate info, and finally, to be able to take it into the studio to process audio as well.

Yep - the pantry is full, a case of red wine, some organic apple cider, cooking large vats of food and freezing, and I'm dreaming manuals in my sleep....
