No flash plug

Seems like LIMS had a few new releases, which coming so soon after Messe and Namm was encouraging. Roland had some new items on display, but it was the latest member of the Juno family that caught our attention straight away - the Juno Di.

It was the first video demo of the day for us, and as I plugged in the audio recorder, I must say I was pretty impressed by the sounds in the headphones... lots of bottom end, a really fat sound.
Turns out the sound engine was derived from the top of the range Fantom G, so it has a bit of pedigree.

We asked product demonstrator Luke Edwards to, er... demonstrate the product ;-] So take it away Luke - and no puns I promise about 'using the force'. Absolutely not. None. Not one. Andy Mac

It does look like a very attractive piece of gear;not complicated and very accesible moneywise. They could have left the Juno G family out and go straight for this;Less frustration and really hands on. I think I'm going for one! Do those batteries recharge when you plug in the socket or do you have to change/recharge them yourself?

I've pre-ordered one of these. This is going to be a HUGE seller for Roland. Fantom G sounds with 128 notes poly is really nice. The new Juno-Di and the previous models are so far apart in features now. Roland has upgraded so many areas that it's like the Classic D and the Le model aren't even part of the family anymore because so much has changed with the new model. Demand for this new synth is already high too as pre-orders are pouring in everywhere!
