Roland JUNO-DI : AlanForPresident's user review
"worth the small investment"
After seeing the Roland Juno Di displayed at guitar center I ended up getting curious and wanting to see how it sounded. So I started messing with it right in the store. Next thing I know 2 hours passed, I cant believe how much fun I was having with it and didn’t have any confusion about anything on it. It was really easy to use right in the store so I was sure that once I purchased it (months later) it would be just as easy to use at home. I do only use the Di just for sounds and effects I have not sequenced on it since I was messing with it in the start about 3 years ago. I don’t like sequencing on units that have small screens for some reason. I will always use a computer to sequence , but getting the audio from the Roland Juno Di to my DAW was very easy.
It’s a 61 key synth with velocity sensitive keys, and a good selection of effects. It an also run on a battery power and doesn’t need to be plugged in. Which is pretty cool, but I would never use it battery powered anyways and im not sure how long the battery life could last on its own like that.
Sounds are really good, when you start adding some effects and getting creative that’s when you will see the real power of the Roland Juno Di.
The price of this keyboard is very affordable, you really don’t have any other options when it comes to wanting good sounds and good effects on a easy to operate keyboard. This could be Rolands easiest keyboard to operated. It is not the best one they have made but it is the easiest to get started with and use, very affordable and different.
