I have one ;-)

And the programmer to go with it... I only got this last week.. utterly essential imo - turns the Alpha Juno into a completely new beast! Yeah you can program it from the front panel but it's just not the same.

I was actually using mine tonight on my new track which I'll be uploading within the next few days.....

You lucky boy Interface!!

Tried some kind of Juno VST once but it was poor in comparison! Anyone know if there are any decent vst's to make similar sounds? If not I may have to get saving!! :lol:

Yeah Juno X2 doesn't cut the mustard :-(
In the video Danny Byrd can be seen using Sylenth1 VST which seems to have a pretty convincing Dominator preset that could probably be mangled into various hoover sounds. It's all about having PWM on a sawtooth wave - which is pretty rare on synths.

Wax - the PG-300 actually costs more than an Alpha Juno does nowadays as they're so rare. I ended up importing one from the USA, got stung for VAT / import duty too. It cost me £275 in total including shipping.

Nice :)
And whatever you knock up with that synth mate, let us have a listen ;)

Ref a vst - the junox2 is ok for some sounds (used one on a tune myself) but the Sylenth vst (dominator patch) as in that vid is pretty good as are the pad sounds as well.
I have it somewhere on the pc if anyone wants it up'd (would have to be via pm of course ;) ).

** For those that have PM'd - will have a little look tonight or in the morning depending on what time the little'un goes to bed! :)

Dominator door bell, how awesome would that be?
