The JUNO-DS61 is an ideal keyboard for all types of musicians, from the amateur, t o the professional, to the music producer. It also excels in schools and other music education settings. It's easy to carry and easy to use, the JUNO-DS61 is full of great Roland sounds for any style or genre. Battery operated or with AC adapter, to give you the flexibility to play anytime, anywhere.
The sounds of acoustic pianos, electric pianos and organs are ideal for most keyboardists. On the JUNO-DS61, the pianos have been enhanced with better sound and response, and you have even more organs to choose from. In addition to the new DS Tone Bank, the instrument includes the entire collection of over 1000 sounds from the previous generation JUNO-Di, and the programming of this keyboard is fully compatible with the JUNO-DS61.
One factor that has made the JUNO series a favorite of many keyboardists is its instant access design, which makes it easy to call up fantastic sounds right away. But if you like to deepen and customize, the JUNO-DS61 now offers even more adjustable parameters than before, allowing you to create sounds and performances with detail and precision. The front panel offers an expanded selection of hand knobs and sliders to create patches and adjust sounds while playing. The rear panel has inputs for connecting hold and expression pedals at the same time.
To complement your factory sound set, the JUNO-DS61 supports expansion of internal waveforms via USB, for unlimited sound range. About 1000 sounds are freely available for download from the Roland Axial website, including high-quality collections of acoustic pianos, instruments from around the world, studio patterns, percussions, loops and more. If you don't find what you need there, you can still load WAV sounds from your personal library and play them from the keyboard. The JUNO-DS61 comes with the EXP-06 Studio Collection version pre-loaded.
With the JUNO-DS61's eight Phrase Pads, you can complement your keyboard performances with samples or music files stored on the USB flash drive. You just need to load the pads with whatever you want - samples, vocals, effects sounds, loops or complete music tracks - and trigger them with a quick touch when you need them.
If you are a singer, you will like the microphone input of the JUNO-DS61, which allows you to get great vocal sounds without having to carry extra equipment. There is a dedicated vocal reverb and Auto Pitch to sing with the popular stepped vocal effect, heard in many modern songs. The built-in Vocoder is great fun too, allowing you to sing into a microphone and control the pitch and pitch via sounds played on the keyboard.
When you have an idea for a sound or beat, you can easily capture and develop it with the built-in pattern sequencer. The intuitive uninterrupted operation will not hinder the creative flow, allowing you to quickly build complete arrangements with multiple sounds. The sequencer is also perfect for improving live performances with pre-recorder backings and loops.
The JUNO-DS61 is not only great on stage - it also works great for computer music production. The dedicated USB interface offers a solid front end for a portable or studio recording setup, allowing you to record MIDI or audio, including sounds from the microphone input. There is even a dedicated DAW Control mode for controlling music software from the JUNO-DS61's front panel
