Roland JUNO-G
Synth 5 octaves with a controller which modulation and pitch.
Connects to industry, 128 voice poly ... etc etc ... (see the official website: p)
An impressive number of sounds (but also an impressive number of sounds useless and unusable my taste)
4 audio tracks as well ... but you buy a synth for MIDI eh? (And to see how the guitars make the synth: a joke (despite the 78 presets Varis little anyway) connect the PC with a large jack-converter mini jack and rendering is the same ... if cot is the audio you are interested in the juno g. .. buy an audio interface!

But despite some attractive CHARACTERISTICS ... unfortunately, it changes little from synths we have on the market today ... and that damn feeling that stagnates at the roland sound is particularly frustrating. ..
Yamaha clearly gives the impression of modified without stop (not yet j'tais party to lean towards the yamaha sounds, but must admit that is.)


Trs trs intuitive, it's no problem, we change the sounds without any problems navigating in the menus just trs (large hand over the quality of the screen, just standard) is cr e its sounds easy etc etc ...
The ease of use is exemplary and the screen plays a crucial role ...
Caution in full manual in English (in french edition expected by some time, ask your dealer, normally it gratos (still happy you might say)
I will not dwell on the point since there is no reproach.
The simplicity caractrise further juno G that quality.


Well, here we are, I think the big downside ... dailleurs existential darkness.
The realism of certain sounds is city insert (I think the violins and the following sounds: Gang Strange and Syn Opra)
But the problem is that hundreds of sounds on offer (again my opinion) take a clearly techno (trs of bad-quality-sound unclassifiable and lctriques mdiocres-going square ment with sound effects! it's great: 1000 to hear a dog aboit, a car that crashed, a door that opens ... but oh no roland Bravo!
And the fashion these days: you press a button it's been the music (this is common with all the synths I have yamaha test (I'm not talking about the Korg TR, I jou not above)
I find even more to my words ... evokes the 'quality (?) Sounds on offer ...
On the VLOC to capture all the subtleties of the sounds, it is advisable to activate it, but what price ... it is not natural at all my taste, as it is forced is not permitted by the effects cons are correct.
Based on patches (which I reviewed 100 times) I have a special affection for the violin (hats off) and some fall quite successful overall.
As against the SRX are trs convincing ... but 300 more per card to enjoy the synth here's what ...

A word about sound audio dj presents:
The young lady who is "um oh yeah, can u dig a girl like me? I think i love you ..." loop and its partner does not know that "yeah k'mon! uh uh" ... frankly it sounds with those they hope to convince the public? (Dailleurs we hear in the videos in BMD.)
I t also a bit of quality in terms of patterns from the dynamic again, Yamaha MO6. But none of trs marking either, let's say it was not really that EHJV in juno G.

(I'm certainly severe trs in my rating is subjective Obviously it is only my opinion and my tastes. Try it, do not rely totally on my personal appreciation, but think what I say I am not far from the goal trs ...)


How long have you use it?

I speak in the pass I sold (and yes dj), so I used one week (I've certainly not seen everything, but the 3 / 4 of what I have seen no I was not given a clear desire to continue playing it).
I read on a forum someone said that the juno g sounded less than the pro YAMAHA MO6 ... and I confirm! It stinks of full ears superficial, no depth, no expression for 9/10me ... it sounds hollow, it any, trs is disappointing, I expected for so long, well it's the slap in the wrong direction ... the term

Dmonstrations in the video on the official website ( reflect the quality trs well overall synth note c ' well, they could lie, but not what we are the sounds!

though I am saying is that BMD but not etc etc ... and no!
3 videos of roland on the official website (above) are not sufficient to reach the ankle BMD YAMAHA MO6
No, frankly, for a hundred dollars more, I highly recommend TRS which is precisely the MO6 much warmer sound in color, although BMD in orientating techno, it offers a depth not negligible (and I'm not pro yamaha at all, I test today)

(And then what do they have our manufacturers we refourguer sound effects in our synths? Is a modern music?)

I will return to correct any errors on this opinion, maybe a little post on a whim, but there is nothing better than whim to bring out the (sad) vrit!

Roland JUNO-G
- Gnrateur sound of the family of which he took bcp Fantom sounds + the specific program in the Juno-G
- Polyphony 128
- Report qualitprix exceptional
- Manuel course in french (it was purchased or you??)


- For those who have the habit of Roland, ds is the continuity ...
- For those who have used the Yamaha Motif, a breeze!
- Squenceur ultra-intuitive, 4 audio tracks possible
- Keyboard synth trs of good quality (personal opinion)
- .....


Well it is called Juno more for marketing than anything else because it really is a versatile synth. While it sounds pretty typical of the old Roland synths (Junos, Jupiter8, Jx, TB303, etc. ...), the rhodes and Wurli I love, Mellotron, Fairlight type synth voices (remember Art of Noise!), tablecloths gentle, leads well-edged ...
But also very good acoustic sounds: Listen to the folk and electric guitars ...!!! Good piano sound (better than Reason, not talking about the Korg ...), of strings ... Trs good ethnic sounds, flutes, shaku, sitar, etc ...
So yes, there are sound effects as pointed out earlier opinion. But have to see where! It is closer to that of Distorted Reality quack qd Himself! Are there other sound banks that the bank costs which are not GM? (See review previous ones)


Ok it makes a synth bastard for some, but I would rather versatile ... You can do everything with ... And you saw the price?

Roland JUNO-G


Very easy to use


Many presets are unusable as part of an arrangement and difficult to mix them. it is necessary to tweak the filters and effects to make it sound
acoustic sounds lagging behind the competition but all the same correct
beautiful tablecloths, good synth sounds
the addition of an SRX is almost essential as it greatly improves qualitée presets


Purchased for 8 months, I am generally satisfied it is very well to models quickly but when the sound is even below what can be done with a computer
the most:
synthetic sounds in general
the simple and powerful sequencer
possibilities to record audio tracks that will be fully integrated with MIDI tracks
sampler basic but very useful ability to import waveforms and loops and use them as a Patch

certain sounds frankly useless and a bit overwhelmed
keyboard keys feel too soft and shorter than normal
srx card prices

I do it again this choice may be that the price of a pattern are currently nine'd hesitate

jfherts's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Roland JUNO-G
Synth numrique 5 octave, touch lightweight.
Controller standard (volume, modulation, and 2-3 bend funny stuff as the cutoff etc. ..)
4 audio outputs
USB interface
The keys are slightly smaller than the norm, but you get done I think.


Trs intuitive use. I did not open many of the manual.


The sound for the price are really not bad at all. I find it versatile trs, trs is the wide range of sounds to me sounds acoustic, some electric pianos, strings, clavinet, pads, leads, pulse, and electronic sounds plutt efficient, etc. ...
I bought it because my JV 80 loose slowly. And it's a gnration suprieure (logic). The sound is much softer, fuller, cleaner. Sounds s'intgrent dj trs well in a mix (if well chosen).


At most I use it, the more I tell myself that I made the right choice.
I have long hsit with other models in the same price range. I find the report qualitprix really impressive. You can really do a lot of things with this keyboard. There are a few features that make using INTERESTED trs enjoyable.
I just fear for her strong. It is trslger (too may be) and j'espre the buttons hold up a little more than a year and a half. We'll see.

For the price: 9 / 10

----------- EDIT ------------

Voil ... just a small point ngatif makes me a little scared for the long term because the screen does not really support the hot. So play in the sun is clearly deprecated! Dernirement, the screen really does not place an AIM (the shadow) but with a heat intense enough and powerful enough spots 2-3 m). I agree that it is deprecated to play with a machine of this kind in such conditions, but I find that it is sensitive enough.
