Roland Juno 106

Venerable is the only word you can use to describe such a classic synth. While many synths rely on chorus and effects to sound passable at all, the juno sounds good either way, and provides a straightforward approach to classic subtractive synthesis.

If you’re producing anything remotely pop or funk, this is the first synth you should rent.

This Juno is fitted with all reproduction voice chips for maximum reliability, and also features a chorus input via the patch shift jack. This means you can run your tracks and guitars through the juno’s very lush chorus.
