Here's more on what folks think of the DCO-106
Such a beautiful elegant interface and such amazing accessibility and immediate functionality, just like my old Juno-106! And that glorious sound..! I love the authenticity of DCO-106's legendary Roland chorus. Just like the original hardware, it is so easy to immediately carve, sculpt or create a sound you''re looking for.

Within the first few minutes of using this synth, it was clearly not only my favorite Juno emu, but also an instant standout in my entire collection of virtual analogues. The sound quality is fantastic, convincing and inspiring even with all fx turned off. But the iconic Juno chorus is there too, with the addition of a very useful stereo width knob. It’s this kind of attention to detail, the elegant balance between staying true to the original when it matters, while making sensible additions in a way that feels natural and intuitive, which is present throughout. The UI is wonderful, easy to see everything, top notch. MIDI Learn is a snap too. From forging ideas to recording them, can’t imagine any synth getting me there quicker than the DCO-106, while sounding absolutely beautiful along the way.

We live in the age of the reissue and 'copycat' synthesizer. What the people at Cherry Audio have done is capture the soul of the Juno-106 and evolve it so it is an everyday part of my creative process. Wonderful.

Love the Cherry Audio products, they went above and beyond with the DCO-106 synthesizer. Top notch!
Fred Bensi Keyboard player, Missing Persons
I played in bands when the first Juno-106 came out and always wanted one, but I never owned one until many years later. Cherry Audio has nailed the 106, plus they’ve added features we could’ve never dreamed of in the original. I’ll be incorporating DCO-106 into my film scores and live shows. I love this instrument, highly recommend!

This is so much fun to play with! I think you’ve hit it out of the park! The Juno-106 was my favorite keyboard back in my top 40 days. It had all of the sounds I needed and more. Thank you so much! You turned back the clock to when things were simpler and full of discovery.

This is quickly becoming a go-to virtual synth for my productions. Great sound, super easy to use, and it has the mojo of the original!

I can finally stop waking up in the middle of the night weeping with regret because I sold my vintage Juno-106 years ago. This instrument’s sound is beyond authentic. The patches are spectacular. The interface is so intuitive that you can easily tweak any sound to make it your own.

By far the most amazing-sounding Juno virtual instrument I’ve ever heard. I’m completely blown away by this. The clarity, stereo field, the recreation of the waveforms and LFO’s and especially the filter textures are dead-on accurate.
Dave Gross Musician and Sound Designer, Helldog Music
I was instantly inspired the second I opened DCO-106 up into my DAW. The sound is fantastic and the additional features such as arpeggiator and effects make this is a next-level 106!

I used to get hung up on Hardware vs. Software. Those distinctions don’t apply here. The DCO-106 simply sounds great, feels great and nestles into any mix beautifully.
