Awesome, vintage, and analog synth. Great for pads and fatty basses. MIDI capable. The only draw back I have found so far is the user-interface, editing parameters with that dial is tolerable but not ideal. Fortunately, there are numerous apps for mobile devices that you can download and use to program patches and tweak parameters on the fly.
Remarkable little synth a (still) affordable way to get that "Roland sound" we love so much. Sound editing is not as straight forward as on a 106, but it pays off to put the time in. I bought mine at a pawn shop for next to nothing. Works a treat!
Love the sounds I get from this baby-I use it all the time for most of my synth sound needs. It's nice that the LFOs for pitch modulation, chorus rate, and PWM are all separate from each other (unlike other Junos), but I wish you could assign the envelope to pulse width. Beautiful Roland filter, even if it doesn't self-oscillate.
The AJ1 is a classic. 6 voicesof delicious analog sound in a small package. It lacks hands on controls, but if you have an ipad or a behringer bcr2000 it's an easy problem to fix. Wish it had a second oscillator, but for what it is it kicks butt.
