Product Description

Look familiar? True to its heritage, the new Roland JUNO-G 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 Roland JUNO-G 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 JUNO-G's onboard audio/MIDI recorder, all for an incredibly low price.

Roland JUNO-G 61-Key Synthesizer Features:


- Powerful "Fantom-X-quality" sound engine
- 128-voice polyphony
- Audio/MIDI multitrack recorder with dedicated transport controls and mixer
- SRX slot for expanding the internal soundset
- Large, friendly display and front-panel controls
- Arpeggiator, Chord Memory, and multi-effects built-in
- USB port for MIDI communication, AIF/WAV file exchange, and data transfer
- PC Card slot (which accepts CompactFlash or SmartMedia cards via adapter)
- Cakewalk SONAR LE software CD-ROM bundled
- Invisible infrared D Beam controller

Great Sounds with Roland's Fantom-X on the JUNO-G

Roland's Fantom-X series is a grand-slam hit around the globe. The Fantom's high-quality sound engine is a key factor in its success. The Roland JUNO-G shares the same processor as the Fantom-X, and thus delivers the finest sound quality on the market -- including an 88-note multisampled grand piano, and a wide range of sounds that span from classical to cutting-edge. You can further expand your JUNO-G with one of Roland's SRX expansion boards (optional).

Roland's JUNO-G: Includes a Audio/MIDI Recorder Onboard

For songwriters and performers, Roland JUNO-G's 16-part MIDI sequencer is a must. But the addition of 4 companion stereo 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 Roland JUNO-G's dedicated front-panel transport controls and mixer make the recording experience all the more friendly.

Roland JUNO-G: Featuring an Inviting Interface
For an instrument packed with so many features, the Roland JUNO-G offers unprecedented ease of use. The aforementioned mixer and transport controls are only part of the friendly "hands-on" work surface. It has clearly labeled buttons, six knobs to modify sounds, five sliders for the audio section, 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 Roland JUNO-G is Computer Friendly

The beauty of the Roland JUNO-G 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 Roland JUNO-G 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 JUNO-G with a copy of Cakewalk's Sonar LE software for PC.

Roland JUNO-G Version 2.0
The sonically charged Juno-G workstation just got recharged with the introduction of Version 2.0 software, adding Fantom-series audio sampling functionality that you can use along-side all the other powerful Roland Juno-G features. Version 2.0 software is a free download. The upgrade is easy to perform and in minutes, you'll be sampling, chopping and sequencing your new sounds.

Sample audio from external sources or import audio phrases from the Roland Juno-G's compact flash memory.

Samples can be assigned to trigger from the Roland Juno-G's function buttons. Up to twelve samples can be triggered from the Juno-G's front panel.

Velocity and note number can be assigned individually for each sample.

Adjust Start, End and Loop points using the Roland Juno-G's front panel control knobs.

Includes advanced sampling editing such as Truncate, Normalize, Emphases, Sample Chop and Combine.

Samples automatically BPM match in real-time to changes made to the tempo of your song.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (186 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Yup. For once, as good as the deal sounds!"
Sound: The sound engine on the Juno-G is simply top notch. One would expect more of the typical pinky, vacuous sounds found on lower end keyboards when purchasing something in the Juno-G's price range, however this is not the case. The Wurly's, Rhodes, Hammonds are fantastic for playing classic rock covers, Texas Blues and the ability to modify these sounds to specific needs is awesome. If there is a downside, it's that there are SO many sounds that it will take you two weeks to get to know them (but it's fun getting there). One note: The classic mini-moog is not quite there in the presets and needs some tweaking. Once you get the hang of it, the synths are all there for your partaking though. Just takes some work and a good ear. If you play a lot of 80's ballads, you might be in trouble though. Those big 80's sounds aren't in the preset library. Feature: They keyboard itself is solid and feels sturdy. I would highly recommend getting a gig bag or travel case though for easy transport. Also, save yourself some frustration and buy the 512MB DIMM, 1GB flash memory and adapter up front so you can realize all the sampling features right away. I also highly recommend purchasing 2 Roland DX series foot pedals - one for sustain and one for control. There are so many features that your fingers are wasting time holding keys down just for sustain. Free them up! Ease of Use: I migrated up from a vintage Ensoniq VFX, which is a heck of a detailed keyboard in terms of editing. However, I have found that the learning curve on the Juno-G is about as steep. Read the owners manual and take it step by step. Once you get the hang of it, the rewards are incredible, as this keyboard has an immense range of possibilities. Quality: Much more solid than I would have imagined for 13 pounds! Based on other reviews, I am concerned about the LCD screen, but a gig bag or travel case and TLC should prevent against that. This is one of 4 keyboards I use for performing and it is quickly becoming my go-to station based on the sound quality. Value: I would have paid nearly twice as much for this unit. Probably the best bang for my musical buck as I've ever seen. Manufacturer Support: I haven't dealt with them for the Juno-G, but Roland is an awesome organization. The Wow Factor: Even a novice can put together solid audio tracks on the Juno-G. One of these and a wannabe Britney and you're cranking out tomorrows pop tunes in mnutes. For the experienced musician, it's got everything you need and more for an economy price. The recording format is actually better than the digital studio that I own! Overall: I'm looking at a long-term romance with the Juno-G. This one's a keeper.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Powerhouse for Mainstream Recording!"
Sound: I just bought this board a week ago and so far it's the best. The sounds are great and perfect for al styles. It also comes with great sound effects out the box. I am in no rush to buy expansions because it is satisfying me right now. The biggest thing would be the drums. The 808 are a little weak, but will do. Feature: Great features, really slick design and so comfortable to use. You can connect via USB to your computer and use editing features as well. I love the fact that everything is in the unit, no need to add external equip just to make a song. Ease of Use: I think it's the easiest board to use, everything is cut dry and to the point. I created a full song right out the box with without the manual. It actually comes with a quick start full color manual that will have you up and creating in minutes. if you can read you will create. Quality: So far this thing is a beast! Great feel and I love that it is so portable. Well it's built pretty solid. The keys are your typical Roland standards. Value: This thing is definately worth the price! It's a true creating machine for all genre's for music. It also comes with Sonar Software for added creativity. Manufacturer Support: No Comment. No need so far! The Wow Factor: The design is smooth and looks powerful. It's compaq and looks like a serious unit. All the features are right in front of you, great! Overall: Overall I would give it a 9 and that's because you can only add 1 SRX Expansion Card and you have to purchase a Compaq card Adapter in order to insert it in the system memory card slot. Other than that, it's a steal for the money you paid for. The sounds are great and even the user memory can store songs without the card. Get this even on or not on a budget!!
