Analog Controller juno 1 and 2 and the rack juno the same series, among others.
Sliders and connections noon.
If you have a juno this controller is a real Holy Grail because it transforms the synthesizer in a digital control 100% analog. More than makes editing sounds with this unit to discover tracks they could never go exploring in the dropdown menu and then taking hours of research while here everything is under your fingers. Roland thank you for thinking of the time in this controller.

Krapod's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
The PG-300 is a MIDI controller for the Juno α 1 and 2, the expander MKS-50, HS10 (Juno clone 1) and HS80 (Juno 2 with speakers).
Top surface: 36 buttons and faders controlling sound settings - Manual button
Rear-facing: MIDI in, out and through - DC 9V 200mA - switch
-Weight: 1.7 kg without transformer
Usage is very simple: when you move a controller on the PG-300, the sound is changed in real time on the Juno. When you press the Manual button, the sound is determined by the position controllers PG. MIDI OUT "merge" information from the MIDI IN and PG-300: If Juno is driven by a sequencer, you must first connect it to PG-300.
I will not say that the PG-300 is essential - after all Juno did that 36 of its parameters, and it has controls "global" (Tone Modify) brightness, modulation and envelope - but it was very useful to the beginner that I was to understand the synthesis, and I continue to use it to tweak the sounds from my Juno 2 and my MKS-50.
My PG-300 was offered with the Juno that I bought in 1987. It seems to me that it was time to 2000 francs (300 euros). His current rating of 225 euros seems to me excessive and senseless (a device which alone is useless is more expensive than the devices it controls and did not need to run), especially since the PG-300 can be replaced by a control surface, or a publisher.
