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 JUNO-G shares the same processor as the Fantom-X, and thus delivers the finest sounds on the market ? including newly created sounds for the JUNO-G, 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).
Audio/MIDI Recorder Onboard
For songwriters and performers, the 16-part MIDI sequencer onboard the JUNO-G 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 you can lay down the perfect backing tracks plus vocals, live guitar parts, or you name it. The dedicated front-panel transport controls and mixer make the recording experience all the more friendly.
For an instrument packed with so many features, the JUNO-G offers unprecedented ease of use. The aforementioned mixer and transport controls are only part of the JUNO-G?s 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 beauty of the JUNO-G is that it can be used by itself to 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 JUNO-G can be linked to a PC or Mac via its USB port. All MIDI communications can be handled over USB; you can also send and receive AIFF/WAV files and patch data via included librarian software. Plus you can edit your patches with the editor software that is included. As an extra computer-related bonus, Roland ships every new JUNO-G with a copy of Cakewalk?s SONAR LE software for PC.
