From Our Research Team:
A Killer Synth and Much More!How would you like a killer live-performance synth that can perform double duty as a serious 8-track recorder? With Roland's JUNO-Gi, that's exactly what you get. Roland loaded the JUNO-Gi up over 1,300 sounds and the same sound-shaping powers you've come to expect from the JUNO series. But here's a new twist: the JUNO-Gi is endowed with a full-functioning 8-track recorder. USB connectivity lets you turn the JUNO-Gi into a complete interface solution when paired with your favorite DAW software.
Click for Video & Audio Demos:
When it comes to a synth, the number and type of sounds available is a top concern. Roland packed the JUNO-Gi with over 1,300 sounds covering a huge array of instruments and styles. And if you're a gigging musician, you'll dig the Live Sets. Layer up to four sounds by stacking or splitting tones and save them together as a Live Set. Plus, a Special Live Set section dives in deep to take full advantage of the JUNO-Gi sound engine, giving you the most advanced synth sounds possible!
But of course, a gigging keyboard is only worth its salt if it's easy to move. Not only is the JUNO-Gi a snap to schlep from gig to gig (it's very lightweight), but you can run it on batteries too! Imagine how easy it would be to take your battery-powered JUNO-Gi synth and a battery-powered BA-330 keyboard amp to the gig. And you could play just about anywhere. Throw out a tip jar and rock on the corner! Be ready in an instant for an impromptu coffee house gig. The world will be your oyster!
As if this wasn't enough reason to click "Add to Cart," the JUNO-Gi is also a full-functioning 8-track digital record (2-track simultaneous recording, 8-track playback). You've got guitar/mic/line inputs so you can record nearly anything, and a 32GB SDHC card (not included) can hold up to 192 hours of recording (that's a lot!). Of course, you've got full import/export support for transferring files to and from a computer and the same effects built into BOSS's GT series are onboard to handle spicing up your tracks.
When you combine the JUNO-Gi with the bundled Cakewalk Sonar LE 8.5 software, you have a complete digital audio workstation package for your PC. In addition, the MIDI Controller Mode lets you operate the JUNO-Gi as a MIDI master keyboard for controlling your DAW or external MIDI devices. The JUNO-Gi is a powerhouse of a synth, with everything else just being icing on the cake.

A truly awesome keyboard synthesizer as a very reasonable price
by David M LaBuda from Albuquerque, NMWhere do I begin? I was looking for an inexpensive keyboard synthesizer that would extend my capabilities as a songwriter. What I got with my new Juno-G was way more than I bargained for. Roland ha... read more [+]s long been know for truly great sounding synths. For instance, no one synthesizes the sound of a guitar any better than Roland. As a guitar and bass player, that was one of the things that first attracted me to the Juno-G. The pitch bend modulation lever feature, once you become adept at it, actually enables you to make that keyboard sing almost as well as any metal guitar soloist or country steel guitar lead-man. I also have the ability to plug my guitar or bass into either of the Juno-G's standard 1/4" TS input jacks and I'm able to use the Juno-G just like any other multieffects pedal. I can even plug a microphone into one of the input jacks and use the Juno-G as a truly awesome sounding vocoder. The rhythm patches and the quality of all the voices, are every bit what I expected from a Roland synth. What really got my attention as novice keyboard player however, were the Arpeggio and Chord Memory features of the Juno-G. With a just a little practice and a greater understanding of these unique features, I'm suddenly ten times the keyboard player I used to be. I have only begun to understand and appreciate the Performance mode capabilities and the ability to create my own unique sounds using the Patch creation and editing features. Upon reading the Owner's Manual I recently discovered that I can even expand the number of voices (patches) and rhythms giving me almost an unlimited variety of sound capabilities. I was a little apprehensive about settling for a 61-key keyboard since my other keyboard is a full 88-keys but shortly after setting up my new Juno-G, I discovered two (up and down), octave switches on the mode control panel that actually allows me to increase my note capability to 17 additional keys beyond a standard 88-key keyboard (by lowering or raising all the keys up to two full octaves) giving me a total note range from E0 (the lowest audible note to the human ear) all the way up to C9 (a full octave above the standard piano keyboard). In order to take full advantage of the low note range capability of the Juno-G, I purchased a JBL ES250P 400 watt powered subwoofer with a low frequency response of 25 Hz. You should hear the truly awesome sounding low bass effects I now get from the Juno-G through this powerful JBL subwoofer. I have used the Juno-G to record though it's 2.0 USB computer Interface directly into Pro Tools recording software and the playback I get is a very high broadcast quality sound. With the addition of the Juno-G to my home studio, I am now capable adding Hip Hop, Trans, and Techno genres to my arsenal of songwriting capabilities. I have only begun to learn and understand everything that the Juno-G is capable of doing. All I can say is, I fully expected to have to pay a whole lot more for everything that this keyboard is able to do and I have not even begun to use the recording, editing, and sequencing features of the Juno-G. All in all, I have been overwhelmed with it's performance capabilities so far and I'm more than satisfied with this purchase. At it's current low price the Juno-G is definitely the very best bargain you could ever hope to find in a keyboard synthesizer today. close [-]

Juno - G best for the price
by Dave Lee from Spokane, WAHave had my Juno G for over a year. Love it. I added the keyboard expansion and have love the additional sounds. I have done some great home recordings and would buy this again in a heart beat. For th... read more [+]e price (under $1,000) you can't go wrong. The owners manual is a joke. I got the DVD and it made every thing so easy to understand. BE sure and get it to save time on learning this machine. I would have given it 5 stars but nothing is perfect. I have been playing for over 40 years and it's the perfect light weight performance set up. I have the 4 track, would love to have the eight track. If you find something better better for the price, let me know. close [-]

Not perfect - not bad.
by Von Glahn from SE VirginiaI'm primarily a guitar player so take this review in that context. My take on the Gi is that it does what it's primarily intended to do quite well, but that it's not the answer to all questions. If ... read more [+]you want a portable board that is great for conceptualizing ideas and getting them recorded, it's great for that. If you're looking for the last board you'll ever have to buy, this ain't it. The sounds, to me, are okay, nothing more. There's a fair amount of tweakability there, but it's lind of a pain to do. The recorder is good and works great and it's nice to be able to plug in guitar/bass/mics to complete the songs. The action is real light synth type but not the worst I've ever felt -not the best either. Overall, it's a useful instrument but possibly a bit overpriced. close [-]

As soon as I put on my headphones, I felt like I was back in the 80s, kicking in the on-board arpeggiator on fat lead patches and comping chords on silky-smooth pads. I'm simply blown away by the versatility of the Roland Juno Gi. For any keyboardist who wants an analog sound and in-the-box tools to record, I strongly recommend this instrument.
