Stellar Sounds, Streamlined Operation

The Juno-D is loaded with CD-quality sounds and direct-access buttons for selecting among the hundreds of patches. The sounds can be layered and split in Performance mode. For those who want to program their own Juno-D sounds via computer, a Mac/PC editor is included.

Composition Tools

The Juno-D is loaded with performance-oriented features including a powerful phrase/arpeggio generator and Multi Chord memory function, which lets you play a chord by touching a single key. You can assign all 12 notes in an octave to play different chords, and then save them as a set. There are several chord sets already stored in the Juno-D at the factory. A Rhythm Guide metronome with real drum sounds is also built in, which includes preset patterns with several variations.

Performance Power

Performers will appreciate the feel of the Juno-D’s improved 61-note, velocity-sensitive keyboard, which is a step up from previous synths in this price range. Bend, twist, and manipulate your sounds in real time with the D Beam controller, pitch/modulation lever, and five front-panel control knobs. For additional control, plug in pedal- and/or footswitches such as Roland’s DP-2, DP-8 Damper pedal, EV-5 Expression pedal, or BOSS’s FS-5U.
