At the 2016 NAMM Show, Roland product specialist Ed Diaz gave us an overview of their Juno DS61 & Juno DS88 synthesizers.
Roland positions the Juno DS synths as performance keyboards. So their synthesis capabilities aren’t as deep as their hybrid analog/digital synths or their recently introduced Boutique synths. Instead, their strength is delivering sounds and features tailored to live performance, including full-size keys, support for sophisticated splits, layers, etc.
Roland offers two version:
- The Juno DS61 offers 61-note with a synth action keyboard
- The Juno DS88 offers an 88-note weighted action keyboard
