The Roland Juno-D is a 61 key synthesizer that can be used in a variety of situations and applications.  It can be used as a typical synth or as an emulation system for acoustic instruments.  The synth has a huge amount of patches and effects and has 1/4 connections for inputs and output as well as MIDI connections and 1/4 inch connections for pedals.  The synth also comes with software for use within your computer and while I haven't really used this portion of the synth, it's definitely cool to have this option.


Using the Roland Juno-D isn't hard as the interface of the keyboard is pretty straight forward and easy to follow.  It is easy to scroll through the patches and to create and save your own, as well as to mess with the effects and all that.  After playing around with the synth for a short while I was able to pretty much understanding going on, and those with any experience with similar synths shouldn't have too many problems figuring out this keyboard.  I've never seen the manual for the Roland Juno-D so I can't say if it would be helpful to learn this keyboard or not.


The sounds that are possible with the Roland Juno-D are quite varied as all sorts of sounds are possible.  My favorite sounds that this synth has to offer is probably the more traditional synth sounds rather than emulations.  All of the sounds that are possible are quite good, but since this is catered to being more of a real synthesizer, it give you more parameters and options to control these sounds over any other ones.  For this reason, I would probably only pick one of these up if you are looking for more of a tradtional synth rather than an emulator of acoustic instruments like piano and orchestra.


I've only used the Roland Juno-D a handful of times for recording sessions, but during these sessions I've definitely liked what I've heard from this synth.  It was easy to use from the start and all of the sounds are quite realistic with a number of parameters to help you get the sounds that you are after.  All in all, I would definitely recommend checking out this synth as Roland has done a great job with this synth.
