Roland Juno StageAvailable form August 2008.
Carefully crafted for the stage, JUNO-STAGE’s factory patch set covers a wide range of essential sounds, including the flagship 88-key stereo multi-sampled piano. Every JUNO-STAGE can also be expanded and customized via two Roland SRX Wave Expansion Boards (sold separately).
Onstage, you need quick and effortless access to your patches. JUNO-STAGE is equipped with FAVORITE buttons for instant access to banks of your most-needed sounds. Best of all, you can also recall your patches via a dual footswitch (optional) connected to a dedicated Patch Select jack, so you never have to take your hands off the keyboard.
Roland optimized JUNO-STAGE’s controllers for live performance, featuring easy-to-grab knobs for instant Master EQ and Reverb control. Located above the pitch bender, two assignable switches can be used for rotary organ effects, portamento on/off, and more.
JUNO-STAGE is equipped with a USB port and Song Player function that enables direct playback and control of backing tracks from a USB key. You can play MP3, WAV, AIFF, and SMF files, and even use the Center Cancel feature to minimize pre-recorded vocals of audio data for karaoke-style performance. Creating and editing audio Playlists is simple with the supplied Playlist Editor software for PC; the playlist can be viewed on JUNO-STAGE's display.
The fast and friendly MIDI Controller mode, complete with dedicated buttons, transforms JUNO-STAGE into a MIDI master keyboard. In this mode, JUNO-STAGE allows program and control changes to be sent with a single touch. For computer-based track making. Cakewalk's SONAR LE software for PC is bundled.
