I've got one and it's a great piece of kit. It's improved my music massively.

Still not very good, though.

The DX1 they acquired form the TFF auction is now fixed, just needed some new capacitors in the PSU and the backup battery had started leaking so that was replaced. All the TFF banks/patches/presets were saved/dumped before the battery was replaced and the factory banks loaded.

I feel dirty but good at the same time. Some Beringher Boog D and Nuetron along with some Erica Gear and Polymath.

I know this is more of a TC-Gate than a Behringer Gate, but has anyone checked out the TC (owned by Music Group) June Chorus? I just came across it and got very excited. Never had a Juno but have heard some great demos on YT, like some guy going for the Vangelis Blade Runner sound on a Juno, it sounds hopeless until he switches the chorus in, then it is so like dual detuned oscillators. Obvious I know, but Roland got it so right.

The first video I heard with the June60 was with a guitar. Not very clever, I thought, very strong and fast modulation, actually gets in the way of the sound. Looking around a bit more on YT reveals a few synths going through June60 (Prophet, DX7, and Behringer demoing a VP330 clone). One thing was consistent - they all sound crap through the June60. I think I could detect disappointment in Nick Batt’s voice - “oh, yeah, you can hear it there...” I know YT can be misleading, but it gives a very good impression of the Junos with chorus. June 60 sounds like a chorus combined with a tremelo, giving a really obvious, fast, amplitude modulation.

I will give it more careful listening, with headphones etc (just via iPad speakers thus far). But I would be interested to know if anyone familiar with the Juno chorus has heard the June chorus. Am I getting wrong first impressions, or is this product way off beam?

I was also looking at the June pedal - from the Youtubes I've watched it has way to high a depth setting :(

The old Juno Chorus II setting always seemed too wobbly for me.

Yeah my preferred setting is Ch.1, but the old Juno chorus is all about stereo outputs and does sound a bit wonky in mono. It also had the headroom allowed by 15V rails, whereas this is a 9V pedal, and I don't know which BBDs they're using or how they've worked the gain through. The original doesn't use companders, whereas most BBD pedal choruses do. Might not make a day/night difference, but it all adds up. I'd have to A/B the original with the TC really.

The price is right (around £60 I think) but, based on what I have heard so far, I wouldn't even waste that much. Hope it gets some official SOS scrutiny...

Me too. Personally, I'm waiting for the Boss DC-2w to hit the shelves. I've got the CE-2w and DM-2w and they're both excellent, no trouble at all with synth levels despite the quoted specs. The TC is looking like it won't be around till later this year...

I see that the odd, 101 and vp are now almost shipping. I’m guessing reviews should start appearing shortly. I foresee a lot of happy campers this summer

If Behringer released copies of the VCS3/2600 would I buy them? of course I would, like a lot of synth enthusiasts, and Behringer know that, they are on to a good thing.
A friend bought over his Behringer D yesterday, we compared it to my Mini Moog Reissue, it was frighteningly good, and as near as damn it like my Moog, if these other copies are as good as this they'll sell like hot cakes, and you can ad me to the pre-order list.
