Pretty good synth with the following exceptions: velocity touch on keys is tricky and fickle; the sequencer has "locked-up" and frozen the entire keyboard while performing (it sounds like a stuck note and all functions on the synth will not work, it has to be powered off then back on again); and the display is weak and needs adjusting from time to time. But it's light-weight and my .SVQ files from my Fantom-S transferred easily. It definitely has quality issues.

You need a doctorate in computer engineering to use this keyboard. I got an instructional DVD, but the instructor assumes the viewer has years of experience with Roland products and goes too fast for a mere mortal like myself to follow. Keep in mind I've been using computers/PCs since they came out and I've been playing keyboards 45 years.I finally wrote out the steps to follow to do some basic functions such as layering sounds and splitting the keyboard. In all, 24 steps just to do those functions! And like Algebra, if you mess up on any of the steps you go nowhere.The keyboard is undersized and cheezy, like the cheapest Casio from 20 years ago. Some keys are louder than others. Some, like in the upper register, drop off in volume compared to the other keys for no reason.I haven't even tried the recording system yet, although I'm sure it will take many hours to figure it out - if I can at all. I regret buying this thing. If you are anything less than a 100% computer geek, you are going to have a world of problems getting the Juno G to do what you want. It is ridiculously complicated.

Worst Roland i've ever bought

By Digital Pro

from NY

I have had many pro gears through out the years, and this is one of the worst unit i have ever bought. The sounds are terrible, its cheaply made and its very disappointing. I have used Rolands in the past, and the piano sounds were decent and presentable, but this one here is a disappointment. Now i will have to sell it.I have an older yamaha ps series that produces better sound than this keyboard. i'm very disappointed with this purchase.

Juno-G Display is unreliable!!!

By SynthsayerWWX

from Lexington, Kentucky

See all my reviews

Ask me a question

Be advised that the JUNO-G display is unreliable and can fail after as little 1 year requiring the owner to purchase the part and have it professionally installed if not an experienced technician. This is very disappointing considering my long-standing loyalty to Roland products.

Buggy

By Ambika Sukla

from Undisclosed

See all my reviews

This is a horribly buggy keyboard. The inbuilt drumsets are unimaginative and crazy.I don't know why all the "USER" rhythm patern come up with the corresponding "PRESET" drum sets pre-selected. And the default sound is so hard it will deafen you..and try changing the patch and drum mix with the level control..there is no way to save your settings and even in the same session the moment you change setting it reset back to 100, 100. It is horrible sounding..there is no way you can just quickly pick a patch and play something with a simple beat in the background without tweaking things over and over again because it loses all your settings anyway. If you edit the rhythm pattern and change the velocity, it loses it when you reboot and then you are back with the same ear defening unimaginative drumming. Some the performance patches loses their tuning every once in a while. Most of the interesting patches in this keyboard have gazillion effects on them, which is ok with me but the moment you add those patches to a performances..it loses all those effects and what you get is just the basic tone..what kind of setup is this...well you can get back some of the effects by tweaking the effects of that channel but can never get back the same sound you have in those patches..The "LIVE" setting cannot have a rhythm pattern playing in background..no..so if you want to be a one man band and use the "LIVE" setting, you cannot...which genius thought of this...And did I talk about the screen..that thing goes haywire every 2-3 years..use a heater near it to keep it sane..Roland changes it for free..but it is still ridiculious...the keys are not standard size..And still everyone here goes gaga over the keyboard..god knows how they are using it. BTW I am putting up with this keyboard for 4 years now..don't have money to buy a new one..

Juno-G Display is unreliable!!!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Please be aware that the JUNO-G display is unreliable and has crashed after as litle as 1 year of use. When I first bought this synth I was blown away with the features and sound quality. I first ran into problem triggering external MIDI sound modules. Now, the diplay has gone out!!!Now, I feel like I bought the ultimate LEMON in Synths. And to think I was going to purchase the Phantom-X next!!! Wow. What a huge disapoinment!!!

Wow.. Finally

By Doug Colosio

from Redding, CA

This keyboard is a must for any PC composer who just wants a great sounding keyboard to compose music with. IT is a fabulous inovation and with a little learning curve it is amazing what this thing can do! I love mine!!!! For the money there is nothing better in my opinion! Just make sure you do the memory upgrades and it is way more than you need to do writing and scoring on a budget. The ability to mix down a midi sequence with these great Fantom quality sounds to a .wav file and edit them on your computer is incredible for a board in this price range! WOW!

AWESOME

By JaredPlaysKeys-Ar7sE

from Augusta, GA

I went in to my local music store and saw this on the wall and fell in love with it. Just all the awesome feautures and to be able to record in real-time 16 tracks. Plus room for expansion boards for sale by Roland. It is known as the poor man's Fantom...It has awesome sounds from drums to piano to strings to leads to arrpeigos to synth...The DBeam is amazing. My band members love coming over and messing with it. Great product. Very light weight. Not bulky. Great product by Roland!

Amazing keyboard

By Yourdudness080-I_Xvk

from Quito, Ecuador

This is poor man`s fantom, the sound engine is fantastic, the quality in every aspect is fantastic. I think this is the best workstation on the price range hands down. The sound quality is a lot better than yamaha mo`s Alesis Fusion or Korg Tr`s + multitrack recorder, time strech on unit, Sonar LE recording software I think it`s overall a 10!!

Juno G

By pianoTim-.KLpY

from Canada

See all my reviews

I bought a Juno G this last fall for my niece who is in an indie band, she is a guitarist and the lead singer, and she has a great ear for sounds, and the Juno G has some of the best sounds I have heard anywhere. The portability, build quality and the sounds are amazing at this price point. Expandable with srx cards and 128 voice polyphony are some great features. The display is large and easy to read. I think it's awesome and I'd love to buy one for myself. I was motivated to write a review extolling the Juno G. An excellent KB, which by the way she just runs through a pa or her kb amp, a 50 w yorkville.

Other Uses

By Flying Fingers

from sanborn, NY

See all my reviews

Update on my last review for the Juno-G. Now I use the audio imput with a guitar for live performance. I use the COSM effects to add reverb, chorus, distortion, and a bunch of synth sounds to the guitar signal, whatever I want. The signal path is guitar to Juno-G to stereo poweramp (or studio mixer for recording) to speaker cabinets.I can play some keyboard then switch to guitar and go back and forth even during the same song. Now that is worth every penny I paid for the Roland Juno G. It's like buying a great synth workstation and a Roland guitar preamp thrown in for free.

Endless creative possibilities

By John Sr.

from Va Beach, Va

See all my reviews

I can't really compare this synth to any others, as this is the only one I've actually owned myself. I have played quite a few other models though, and in this price range, I think the Juno G is awesome. I'm a guitar player first, and then a keyboard player, and this thing has open doors in my studio, that would otherwise not be accessible. Great sounds, and features. You won't be disappointed.

JUNO-G is a dream for the working musician

By ...they call me A-flat

from St Louis

See all my reviews

I bought the Roland JUNO-G almost two months ago after deciding to gig with two keyboards at all times. This keyboard is so lightweight and can be carried in one hand. The features onboard are great for the easy sound menu and transpose button right up front. The realtime controllers are great as well for synth solos and makes you look cool turning the knobs! My band members love coming over to my D-Beam and trying to get some action in with that... The shorter keys were noticeable the first few days and since then it's been great. I play the JUNO_G on top of a KORG TR76 and the JUNO-G is a much better live performance keyboard. I haven't even tocuhed the recorder and audio tracks yet! I love the JUNO-G and the attention it gets me!

Best in it's class for endless possibilities, the sounds are amazing, esp. The pianos and organs. Large bright easy to read display.Try one out and see what you think. Of course it needs a good monitor system or pa to sound it's best. Another awesome tool for a creative person, and I've had mine for a year, and yes the display is still working!

More than a synth

By Rich-CcD0M

from Oakland, CA

See all my reviews

First of all, this board is being listed as a synth but it's actually a workstation since it has 16 tracks of sequencing plus 4 tracks of audio. It's a very complete system. There are plenty of sounds to work with and the synth modification tools make it very easy to adjust each sound. The drums are very fat and don't need much adjusting. That's a big plus at this price range. I only have 2 complaints. First is that the sequencer is only 16 tracks which can be a little bit limiting when trying to separate drums tracks. You will probably use at least 4 tracks on drums only. Hip hop producers will probably use closer to 8 with all of the cool nuance soudns that are available in each kit. My other complaint is that, while the sequencer is very easy to use, it can be pretty time consuming to arrange your songs the way you want them. I'm not talking about hours or anything, but hip hop producers know that once the tracks for the beat are finished, you don't want to spend another 15 minutes copying and pasting them throughout the song. You just want to lay it down and move on to the next one. But really, you can't beat this board for the price. Roland did a great job of packing a lot features into it. What really sets it apart is that it has tremendous realistic tones. This is a great deal. Go get it.

A JUNO on STEROIDS!!!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I had the pleasure playing this thing at another store. All I have to say is this: for the price you CANNOT beat!! Come on, 4 tracks of Audio Recording for under a Grand?! My only gripe I have I wish it could take more than 1 srx card, but still, you'll be hardpress to find something better than this at a good price!! I had a juno 106 a long time ago, and I regreted to this day that I got rid of it!! But with this new JUNO, I feel like I'm born again. Can't wait until my income tax come back.

Love Mine

By Sgt. Klepto

The Alesis Fusion is on it's way back, and I now have a Juno G. Love the Juno G. Didn't like the Alesis Fusion. Being a novice keyboardist the Juno G has everything I need even the Sound Quality of the Instruments which some of the Alesis lacked even though I liked quite a few of the Fusion's sounds.Manual for the Juno G is far better than the Alesis for myself at least who is just breaking into working with a synth/workstation and have only played on low end Yamaha & Casio type keyboards.Friend of mine who is a keyboardist recommeded the Juno G. Should have sought his advice in the first place.And I stayed up way way way to late last night playing with the Juno G.

Gruv Projekt

By Art Decco Member: Gruv Projekt

from Synth Land USA

I love the warmth of this new board. I had a few completed tracks that I decided to add more sounds to with my new board and it really gave them depth. The board is very user friendly, I was able to start playing with it right out of the box, I haven't had a chance to read the manual because I've been having too much fun.. I buy it again....
