User Sampling Expansion, Free Download!

Roland’s popular JUNO-G workstation evolves with the release of Version 2, available as a free download for owners of the original model. The software upgrade adds user sampling and sample-pad triggering to the feature set, letting you vastly expand your sound library and creative potential. Using the external input, you can capture audio from a microphone, a CD/MP3 player, etc., and assign the recorded sound to a front-panel button where it can be triggered like a pad. The outstanding budget-friendly workstation gets even better with Version 2, and at no extra cost.

New Features
- User sampling and waveform editing now available with Version 2
- Stores up to 9,000 samples (user: 2,000, card: 7,000)
- Sample triggering from the six buttons below the LCD screen
- 12 samples can be assigned simultaneously to the buttons (6 samples x 2 groups)
- Version 2 available to all JUNO-G owners via free download!

Great Sounds

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.

Inviting Interface

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.

Computer Friendly

The beauty of the 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 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.
