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.
