The Roland JUNO-Gi is an amazing synthesizer and digital recording studio. It joins a powerful synth engine containing 1300 high-quality sounds with an eight-track recorder. This all comes packed in a portable 61 key keyboard which is perfect for the studio or the stage.
The JUNO-Gi has tone category buttons putting every sound you could possibly want at your fingertips. From acoustic instruments, powerful pads, classic and modern synths. You can edit all these sounds in real-time via the parameter knobs, a pitch-bend faciltity and a D-Beam controller.
The recording interface on the Juno-Gi is truly epic. Just by simply plugging in a guitar, microphone or external audio source you can start to lay your tracks down instantly with eight tracks to choose from. The onboard rhythm generator is also a great tool for creating backing tracks fast. Store all these recordings on a 32GB SD Card which gives you upwards of 192 hours record time.
The standard USB and MIDI connectors can be used with your favourite DAW to increase your tracks count, although Sonar 8.5 LE is bundled with the Juno-Gi to give you a head start..

Here's what Roland have to say....
New sound bank
A new sound library has been created for the JUNO-Gi, with over 1,300 factory selections that cover a universe of instrument types and musical styles. Tone Category buttons help you scan the vast library and locate the perfect sound with ease and speed. New to the JUNO-Gi are Live Sets, which comprise up to four layered tones each — create your own unique sounds by stacking and/or splitting tones and saving them together as a Live Set. Furthermore, a special Live Set section takes maximum advantage of the JUNO-Gi sound engine for the most advanced synth sounds.
Performance and portability
The JUNO-Gi has been designed with the performer in mind. It provides supreme mobility thanks to its lightweight body and battery-power compatibility (up to three hours of continuous operation with eight NiMH AA batteries), letting you experience the freedom of performance in any environment. Roland’s battery-powered amps such as the BA-330 and KC-110 are perfect companions for the JUNO-Gi during street performances. Performers will also appreciate the JUNO-Gi’s friendly front panel, which is covered with hands-on controls, clearly marked and within easy reach. The large screen provides clear visibility and fast navigation, even at bright outdoor gigs.
Digital recording and FX
Pro-recording onboard! The JUNO-Gi’s eight-track digital recorder with 64 virtual tracks provides a multi-track studio environment, with dedicated transport controls and mix faders. The recording media is a removable SD or SDHC card, with up to 192 hours of recording time possible when using a single 32GB SDHC card. Also supported is full import and export of track data with a computer. The same pro-performance effects found in the Boss GT-Series are built into the JUNO-Gi, as well as effects designed for vocal processing. Connect a guitar or microphone directly and apply these top-quality effects for instant CD-quality sound as you record.
USB MIDI and audio
The JUNO-Gi’s multifunction USB port offers audio and MIDI functionality — a one cable connection to your computer is all you need to stream audio and MIDI between your favourite music software. 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 external MIDI devices.
