Roland U.S. is pleased to announce the JUNO-Gi Mobile Synthesizer with Digital Recorder. Not only is the JUNO-Gi compact, easy to use, and affordable, it also boasts an all-new sound set designed for live performance, built-in eight-track digital recorder with 64 virtual tracks, and easy integration with many digital audio workstations through its built-in audio interface.
The JUNO-Gi runs on AC power or batteries, so users can play music anywhere. Onboard are over 1,300 brand-new, top-quality sounds optimized for live playing. Sounds are organized into Live Sets, allowing four-way splits and layers with ease. Tone Category buttons make it simple to navigate the massive sound library, while the powerful mod, pitch bend, and D BEAM controllers let players add expression to sounds as they perform.
The JUNO-Gi also includes a built-in eight-track digital recorder for song production, complete with transport controls, mix faders, and a dedicated rhythm machine track. Record directly to a single high capacity SD card for up to 192 hours of possible recording time with a single 32 GB card. JUNO-Gi sounds can be easily recorded along with a vocal mic or guitar when connected via the rear-panel XLR microphone, guitar, and line level inputs. Powerful dedicated effects processing is available for live recording, mixing, and mastering, including BOSS GT-Series professional guitar effects and effects designed for vocal processing.
The JUNO-Gi also functions as a USB audio/MIDI interface, making it the perfect companion for computer music production. Users can record JUNO-Gi sounds and play software instruments in any DAW, and also record vocals and guitars while using the JUNO-Gi’s onboard effects. In addition, the JUNO-Gi comes bundled with Cakewalk’s award-winning SONAR 8.5 LE software, giving users a complete DAW solution for their PC.
The JUNO-Gi is expected to ship in October with an MSRP of $1,199.00. For more information, please visit www.RolandConnect.com.
