Where do I begin? I was looking for an inexpensive keyboard synthesizer that would extend my capabilities as a songwriter. What I got with my new Juno-G was way more than I bargained for. Roland has long been know for truly great sounding synths. For instance, no one systhesizes the sound of a guitar any better than Roland. As a guitar and bass player, that was one of the things that first attracted me to the Juno-G. The pitch bend modulation lever feature, once you become adept at it, actually enables you to make that keyboard sing almost as well as any metal guitar soloist or country steel guitar leadman. I also have the ability to plug my guitar or bass into either of the Juno-G's standard 1/4" TS input jacks and I'm able to use the Juno-G just like any other muliteffects pedal. I can even plug a microphone into one of the input jacks and use the Juno-G a truly awesome sounding vocoder. The rhythm patches and the quality of all the voices, are every bit what I expected from a Roland synth. What really got my attention as novice keyboard player however, were the Arpeggio and Chord Memory features of the Juno-G. With a just a little practice and a greater understanding of these unique features, I'm suddenly ten times the keybaord player I used to be. I have only begun to understand and appreciate the Performance mode capabilities and the ability to create my own unique sounds using the Patch creation and editing features. Upon reading the Owner's Manual I recently discovered that I can even expand the number of voices (patches) and rhythms giving me almost an unlimited variety of sound capabilities. I was a little apprehensive about settling for a 61-key keyboard since my other keyboard is a full 88-keys but shortly after setting up my new Juno-G, I discovered two (up and down), octave switches on the mode control panel that actually allows me to increase my note capability to 17 additional keys beyond a standard 88-key keyboard (by lowering or raising all the keys up to two full octaves) giving me a total note range from E0 (the lowest audible note to the human ear) all the way up to C9 (a full octave above the standard piano keyboard). In order to take full advantage of the low note range capability of the Juno-G, I purchased a JBL ES250P 400 watt powered subwoofer with a low frequency response of 25 Hz. You should hear the truly awesome sounding low bass effects I now get from the Juno-G through this powerful JBL subwoofer. I have used the Juno-g to record though it's 2.0 USB computer Interface directly into Pro Tools recording software and the playback I get is a very high broadcast quality sound. With the addition of the Juno-G to my home studio, I am now capable adding Hip Hop, Trans, and Techno genres to my arsenal of songwriting capabilities. I have only begun to learn and understand everything that the Juno-G is capable of doing. All I can say is, I fully expected to have to pay a whole lot more for eveything that this keyboard is able to do and I have not even begun to use the recording, editing, and sequencing features of the Juno-G. All in all, I have been overwhelmed with it's performance capabilities so far and I'm more than satisified with this purchase. At it's current low price of more than 40% below the MSRP, the Juno-G is definately the very best bargain you could ever hope to find in a keyboard systhesizer today.
