The JUNO-Di from Roland is a 61 key synthesizer with over 1000 great sounding presets, the ability to run on batteries, and a built-in song player that enables you to trigger backing tracks right from the keyboard. The idea is to supply you with an instrument with lots of useful sounds to play and tweak to your liking, but also give you lots of problem solving features that will make life easier when writing, rehearsing, and performing.
Weighing under 12 lbs (5.2 kg), the JUNO-Di is remarkably lightweight for a 61 key professional keyboard. It can run on 8 AA batteries, liberating you to play music anywhere you please. A microphone input allows you to easily incorporate vocals into your work, and a dedicated reverb knob gives the vocals a professional sheen.
A USB input on the front panel allows you to attach a flash memory stick. You can playback song files for rehearsal, or you can play backing tracks to fully flesh out your arrangements. A second USB port on the rear allows you to use the JUNO-Di as a fully functional MIDI controller for digital audio software. The rear of the JUNO-Di also features a dedicated auxiliary input, enabling you to plug in an MP3 or CD player.
Just because the JUNO-Di is loaded with useful tools and functions doesn't mean that it lacks in sounds. Among the hundreds of built-in sounds you will find electric pianos, strings, guitars, synths, percussion, and many more. It features a lush grand piano with a dedicated button, so you can always find your way back to it in an instant. You can make any sound your own with the dedicated control knobs, or get deep control with the included Mac and Windows compatible software editor.
