New Roland Juno


Roland has announced the JUNO-Gi Mobile Synthesizer with Digital Recorder. Here's what they have to say about it...
The JUNO-Gi is compact, easy to use, and affordable and also boasts an all-new sound set designed for live performance, built-in eight-track digital recorder with 64 virtual tracks, and easy integration with many digital audio workstations through its built-in audio interface.


The JUNO-Gi runs on AC power or batteries, so users can play music anywhere. On board are over 1,300 brand-new, top-quality sounds optimised for live gigs. Sounds are organised into Live Sets, allowing four-way splits and layers with ease. Tone Category buttons make it simple to navigate the massive sound library, while the powerful mood, pitch bend, and D BEAM controllers let players add expression to sounds as they perform.

The JUNO-Gi also includes a built-in eight-track digital recorder for song production, complete with transport controls, mix faders, and a dedicated rhythm machine track. Record directly to a single high-capacity SD card for up to 192 hours of possible recording time with a single 32 GB card. JUNO-Gi sounds can be recorded easily along with a vocal mic or guitar when connected via the rear-panel XLR microphone, guitar, and line level inputs. Powerful dedicated effects processing is available for live recording, mixing, and mastering, including BOSS GT-Series professional guitar effects and effects designed for vocal processing.
The JUNO-Gi also functions as a USB audio/MIDI interface, making it the perfect companion for computer music production. Users can record JUNO-Gi sounds and play software instruments in any DAW, and also record vocals and guitars while using the JUNO-Gi's onboard effects. In addition, the JUNO-Gi comes bundled with Cakewalk's award-winning SONAR 8.5 LE software, giving users a complete DAW solution for their PC.

One more product from Roland that is not going to get any updates or any support.

Roland support sucks. Buyers beware. Long gone are the glory days of Roland, all they do now is kiss ass and PR stuff, leaving musicians without crucial updates and bugfixes for years.

If you buy this and find out something crucial is not working with the software, you will have to live with it for years. Roland does NOT do support like other companies do.

You will be left alone and all your complaints will be ignored. They do not fix bugs.

Don't know what your problems are guys but I'm feeling the total opposite for Roland. Great support, drivers and updates long after products are discontinued.

Happy ex-customer    Said...

Do you mean great support like the total failure of support for Rolands "flagship" Fantom G?

Or do you mean great support like charging $99 for the Roland GAIA editor?

Do you mean great support like the thousands of unhappy users with failing screens on the previous Junos that get no support from Roland?

Well, you fill find out how great Rolands support is when you buy this synth and have to wait 3-4 years to get some little bug fixed.

Good luck trying to get a hold of any kind of customer support. Roland does not have a phone nor email. They do have local marketing teams around the globe, but drivers and OS fixes are made in Japan, and they DO NOT listen to anyone. They do as they please and they do not please anyone.
