Versatile, Expandable Sound Set

Carefully crafted for the stage, JUNO-STAGE’s factory patch set covers a wide range of essential sounds, including the flagship 88-key stereo multi-sampled piano. Every JUNO-STAGE can also be expanded and customized via two Roland SRX Wave Expansion Boards (sold separately).

Instant Access to Sounds

Onstage, you need quick and effortless access to your patches. JUNO-STAGE is equipped with FAVORITE buttons for instant access to banks of your most-needed sounds. Best of all, you can also recall your patches via a dual footswitch* connected to a dedicated Patch Select jack, so you never have to take your hands off the keyboard.

*Connect an optional FS-6 dual footswitch to scroll up or down through patches and performances.

Live-Performance Control

Roland optimized JUNO-STAGE’s controllers for live performance, featuring easy-to-grab knobs for instant Master EQ and Reverb control. Located above the pitch bender, two assignable switches can be used for rotary organ effects, portamento on/off, and more.

Backing Tracks Via USB

JUNO-STAGE is equipped with a USB port and Song Player function that enables direct playback and control of backing tracks from a USB key. You can play MP3, WAV, AIFF, and SMF files, and even use the Center Cancel feature to minimize pre-recorded vocals of audio data for karaoke-style performance.
Creating and editing audio Playlists is simple with the supplied Playlist Editor software for PC; the playlist can be viewed on JUNO-STAGE's display.

Instant Master MIDI Control

The fast and friendly MIDI Controller mode, complete with dedicated buttons, transforms JUNO-STAGE into a MIDI master keyboard. In this mode, JUNO-STAGE allows program and control changes to be sent with a single touch. For computer-based track making. Cakewalk's SONAR LE software for PC is bundled.

Stage-Friendly Bonus Features

JUNO-STAGE is packed with great features for live performance, such as an XLR mic input with phantom power (ideal vocal sing-along performance or driving the built-in vocoder), Click Output (for sending an audible click track to bandmates onstage), and an external input for a portable audio player.
