Agreed. That sounds like an EML Electrocomp 100 to me too. It’s got a pretty unique filter, and the octave is also very distinct.
oh yeah, now that i listened to that video, definitely sounds like the EML to me as well.

I wish I had that one. I have the 460, but there's no midi and no sequencer. Boo.

Still getting used to this one, the 470 is more intuitive with the sliders rather than dealing with menus. But midi gives this some cool possibilities.

Synths with menu banks that you have to scroll through should be considered a war crime.

And everything should have midi (while not a deal breaker, it makes everything better).

I do like midi however not having it makes me think of the 470 as a live instrument like my guitar rather than something I can program which makes me approach it differently.

I would love to be able to run a sequencer (like my Arturia Keystep) into the 460/470 so I can get some sequenced FM nastiness.

I was going to buy a Yamaha DX-something-or-other but frankly, the 460 does enough of that horrible sound to keep me content.

That's the reason I took a punt on the 480 so I could have the best of both worlds.

Pretty good idea!

I actually think I might sell off my little Yamaha/Casio collection. Not worth much, but it's taking up space.

I've been having fun playing LCD Soundsystem's American Dream on my Juno. Sounds so good! :-*

Maggie, you need a Juno of some sort. You really do! Its my favourite synth I own. Polyphony is a beautiful thing!

Maybe I'll record a little clip later, if I have time.

Any opinions on the Boutique Juno?
