Roland JunoG 61 Key Synthesizer Keyboard delivers Old-School Ease and Cutting-Edge Features.
Look familiar? True to its heritage, the new JUNOG is affordable and user-friendly. But that’s where the comparisons to yesteryear end. This modern marvel packs a studio’s worth of sound, sequencing, and audio recording into one amazing instrument. Sharing the same high-powered processor as Roland’s famous Fantom-X series, the JUNOG puts a world of first-class sound and performance features under musicians’ fingertips and allows more sounds to be added via SRX expansion. Songs can be created with the onboard audio/MIDI recorder, all for an incredibly low price!
For songwriters and performers, the JUNOG’s 16-part MIDI sequencer is a must. But the addition of four companion audio tracks is a huge bonus, and an unexpected surprise for an instrument in this price range! Now players can lay down the perfect backing tracks plus vocals, live guitar parts, and the like. The JUNOG’s dedicated front-panel transport controls and mixer make the recording experience all the more friendly.
For an instrument packed with so many features, the JUNOG offers unprecedented ease of use. The aforementioned mixer and transport controls are only part of the friendly hands-on work surface. In all, there are over 50 clearly labeled buttons, seven knobs, five sliders, a data wheel, a D Beam, and a pitch/mod lever. In the center of it all is the largest backlit LCD of any synth in this price range.
The beauty of the JUNOG is that it can be used to by itself create complete songs from start to finish, but for those who want to take it one step further and incorporate a computer into the setup, the JUNOG can be linked to a PC or Mac via its USB port. All MIDI communications can be handled over USB, which can also be used to send and receive WAV/AIF files and patch data. As an extra computer-related bonus, Roland ships every new JUNOG with a free copy of Cakewalk’s SONAR LE software for PC.
