Roland | Juno-Gi


The Juno-Gi is the updated Juno-G. So what's different about the G and the Gi? Well, quite a bit it. First off, the Gi has double the waveform ROM (128MB vs 64MB in the G, so there are plenty of new sounds onboard (over 1,300 in fact).

Secondly, Roland have done away with the sequencing and sampling and instead added a powerful eight-track digital recorder which can record to high capacity SDHC cards for quick and easy access. On top of this, sounds are now called 'live sets' and allow stacking of up to four tones/layers and the option for battery power has also been added.

The DiGital Recorder is a new feature unique to the Juno Gi. It's an eight-track recorder (with a further virtual eight tracks per channel totalling 64 tracks) and can hold a maximum number of 99 songs, while the maximum recording time for any one song is a total of 12 hours onto a 2GB SDHC card.

The sound quality is excellent and records at 16-bit 44.1kHz. Simply plug into the line or mic/Hi-Z inputs and record. Up to two tracks can be recorded simultaneously, tracks can be bounced together to create more space and you can also record direct from the synth itself.

Further to this, the recorder has its own dedicated rhythm track and you can add insert effects to the input and record them too, then master and export. The end result is a 16-bit WAV file and can be imported to your computer for burning to a CD, or for further editing.

Editing is basic compared to a DAW but functions include punch in/out, bounce, copy/move tracks plus loop recording.

Velocity As with a piano, the harder you hit a key, the louder the sound, unlike most organs which always produce the same loudness no matter how hard you hit a key. Aftertouch Pressing a key after you activated it. Channel Aftertouch, no matter which key, it will send a Channel message. Poly Aftertouch, sends the pressure per key instead of the whole channel.
Values for OSC, LFO, Filter, Envelope are per voice unless stated otherwise.
