Roland Updates JUNO-G Workstation Keyboard Operating System To Version 2.0
Roland has updated the operating system for their JUNO-G Workstation Keyboard to version 2.0 status. The update adds “Fantom-series-like” audio sampling functionality.
» Sample audio from external sources or import audio phrases from the removable flash memory.
» Samples can be assigned to trigger from the JUNO-G’s function buttons or the JUNO-G’s keyboard.
» Velocity and note number can be assigned individually for each sample.
» Adjust Start, End and Loop points using the JUNO-G’s front panel control knobs.
» Advanced sampling editing such as Truncate, Normalize, Emphases, Sample Chop and Combine are included.
» Samples can automatically match BPM in real-time to changes made to the tempo of your song.
Roland has attempted to jump start awareness for the Juno series by launching a dopey “How Do You Juno?” contest. The number of entries pretty much sums up the enthusiasm that the general public has for the concept. Roland has already shed almost 20% of their US workforce. If this is all that their marketing department can garner to create product interest, then it looks like the company will be issuing more pink slips this Summer.
