Roland Premiers Juno-Stage Performance Keyboard
Roland has premiered the Juno Stage at the London International Music Show.
Designed for live performers, the JUNO-Stage features a large display, USB backing-track functionality, a Click output for drummers, dedicated performance knobs, hands-free patch select, and instant master MIDI control functionality, the JUNO-Stage aims to milk the last amount of coolness out of the Juno name.
» A rehashed sound set, including 88-key stereo multi-sampled piano plus dual SRX expansion bay
» Newly developed 76-note keyboard
» Live-performance features such as a large LCD, dedicated Reverb and Master EQ knobs, Click Output for drummers, and hands-free patch-select footswitches
» USB port enables accompaniment-track playback (MP3, WAV, AIFF, SMF) directly from USB flash drive
» Phantom powered mic input plus reverb, great for playing and singing along (Yup, that does it. Roland has officially killed the Juno name. –Ed.)
» MIDI Controller mode transforms JUNO-Stage into a MIDI master keyboard with a single touch
