Any place. Any time. JUNO-DS is the new generation of ultra-portable synth for musicians who are going places. The lightweight cabinet and streamlined operation means JUNO-DS synths are simple to load in and set up, letting you focus on the show or session. Plus, they offer flexible features for every band scenario, including a choice of pro-quality built-in sounds, onboard pads for audio playback, and a pattern sequencer for creating original songs. Choose among the 61-note JUNO-DS61 and 76-note JUNO-DS76 models, which feature velocity-sensitive keyboards with synth action, and the JUNO-DS88, which comes equipped with an 88-note keyboard with weighted action.

Your music could take you anywhere – and weighing as little as 5.3kg (JUNO-DS61), the light and compact JUNO-DS series is ready to go with you. Public transport, cramped stages and busy studios are no problem for these mobile synths, which combine pro features with a space-saving setup. From club shows using AC power to street performance with optional battery operation and a battery-powered keyboard amp, the JUNO-DS is your new wingman.

The JUNO-DS makes it easy to find your signature sound. Select the performance mode and you can set up advanced sounds like layering strings onto the acoustic piano, or assigning organ and bass to right and left hand.

When your bandmates can’t make it to the rehearsal or gig, the JUNO-DS offers the perfect solution, covering the missing parts and giving you a full-band sound. Using the phrase pads, you can bring instant beats to your music by playing along with the authentic drum patterns, or copy audio data (MP3/WAV) onto the USB memory and play it back at the gig. It’s a flexible feature that means you’ll always have a full and professional sound – whether you’re in a band or a solo performer.

More than an instrument, the JUNO-DS is a mobile studio. With the onboard audio interface function, you can record your band via the mic input, then store the music on your computer and share with your bandmembers. It’s a great feature for recording minus-one tracks, without keyboard, for home practice, or for assessing your band’s performance.

When you’re working at home, the JUNO-DS guides you from flash of inspiration to finished song, with a built-in pattern sequencer that offers up to 8-track recording for full band-style arrangements, including drums, bass, guitar and keyboard. Maybe you’ll complete the track yourself – or take your portable JUNO-DS synth to rehearsals and let the band help finish it off.

The JUNO-DS’s onboard tones are a great primer – but they’re just the start. With this open-ended synth range, you can enjoy free downloads from Roland’s Axial Sound Library, and give your performance a shot in the arm with tones from the famous XV-5080 Collection or EXP series.
