Find the right sound instantly from a choice of pro onboard sounds

It’s frustrating when the band adds a new song to the set and you can’t find the right sound in your synth. The JUNO-DS61 has the pro onboard sounds to keep you covered, whatever genre comes up next. Instantly choose your favorite pro-quality sounds from nine categories, and with over 1,000 sounds including acoustic and electric pianos, organs, and synth, there’s enough choice to cover any musical genre or performance style. And the patches from the previous-generation JUNO-Di synth are fully compatible too. Just think of a sound – and it’s right there at your fingertips.

Create your signature sound with ease instantly

Some synths make you stick with the factory settings, which can leave your music sounding a little generic – but the JUNO-DS61 is wide open. The instant-access design lets you call up pro sounds in seconds. But even if this is your first synth, it’s simple to dig into an array of adjustable parameters and create your own voice. Select the performance mode and you can set up advanced sounds like layering strings onto the acoustic piano, or assigning organ and bass to your right and left hands respectively. Create and tweak patches. Shape sounds during a song with hands-on controls. Connect expression pedals via the rear panel to take your performance to the next level.

Keep your music up-to-date with free downloadable sounds

As your band gets adventurous and your playing evolves, it’s vital to play a synth that won’t get left behind. The JUNO-DS61’s onboard sounds and editing capabilities are just the beginning. This modern instrument also supports internal waveform expansion via USB, bringing the best synth sounds from the web into your performance. It’s easy to get started, with the versatile EXP-06 Studio Collection preloaded in the wave expansion slot. Then choose your favorites from over 1000 EXP patches available for free download at Roland’s Axial website. You’ll find top-quality acoustic piano collections, world instruments, go-to studio standards, percussion, loops – and it’s even possible to load in WAV files from your own sound library and play them from the keyboard. And the free JUNO-DS librarian software lets you manage all these sound patches using your computer.

Enjoy solo jam sessions with realistic-sounding drums, guitar and bass backing

Just because your bandmates aren’t available to rehearse, that doesn’t stop you honing your skills with a jam session. Using the JUNO-DS61’s eight Phrase Pads, you can add instant beats under your keyboard parts, or copy audio data (MP3/WAV) to the USB memory and play along with full-band backing. When your shows need more dynamics, the Phrase Pads also function as a live sampler: load them up with anything from sound effects to loops – then trigger them with a quick touch during the gig.

Eight-track pattern sequencer takes you from spark to finished song

When songwriting inspiration strikes, you need to catch it fast – and complicated gear can kill the moment. The JUNO-DS61 is the songwriter’s best friend. When you have an idea for a song or beat, you can easily capture and develop it with the onboard pattern sequencer. The intuitive, non-stop operation won’t interrupt your creative flow, letting you build up full arrangements with multiple sounds in a flash. It’s a great tool for live work, too, letting you enhance performances with pre-made backing music and on-the-fly looping.

Stand out from the crowd with unique vocal effects

If you’re a solo performer or singer/songwriter, you’ll love the JUNO-DS61’s mic input, which lets you get great vocal sounds without having to carry around extra gear. There’s a dedicated vocal reverb, plus Auto Pitch for singing with the “stepped” electronic vocal effect popular in today’s music. The built-in vocoder is inspirational too, allowing you to sing into a mic and control the tone and pitch via sounds played on the keyboard.

Everything you need to connect to your DAW and start making music

As a modern musician, you’ll do most of your recording on a home computer using a DAW – and the JUNO-DS61 has everything you need, no extra gear required. The integrated USB interface provides a solid front end for a mobile or studio recording setup, allowing you to record MIDI and audio data, including sounds from the mic input. There’s even a dedicated DAW Control mode for controlling your music software from the JUNO-DS61’s front panel. It’s never been simpler to get your songs done and dusted.
