        A studio's worth of sounds, sequencing, and audio recording in one amazing synth.

        True to the JUNO tradition, Roland's JUNO-G is affordable and capable—a high-powered stage synth, and an extraordinarily capable workstation. With 61 touch-sensitive keys, the keyboard features the Fantom-X sound engine with its world-class sounds including an 88-note multisampled grand piano, onboard effects, onboard sound modifying controls, a spacious 16-track MIDI song recorder along with 4 channels of audio recording—a first for synths in its price class. The Roland JUNO-G's dedicated front-panel transport controls and mixer make the recording experience all the more user-friendly. The Roland synthesizer comes with over 1,000 built-in sounds, plus an SRX slot for expanding its soundset. Arpeggiator, chord memory, a large display, PC card slot for storage, USB port for MIDI and data transfers, 128-voice polyphony, built-in rhythm sets, pitch and modulation levers, D-beam controller, and dedicated controls for most functions make it easy to operate.

        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.

        Buggy

        By Ambika Sukla

        from Undisclosed

        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..

        Worst Roland i've ever bought

        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.

        Endless creative possibilities

        By John Sr.

        from Va Beach, Va

        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.

        By pianotim

        from Canada

        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!

        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!

        Juno G

        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.

        Juno-G Display is unreliable!!!

        By SynthsayerWWX

        from Lexington, Kentucky

        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.

        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!!!
