Roland Unveils Juno-Di Mobile Synthesizer
Roland has unveiled their new Juno-Di Mobile Synthesizer, a lightweight and portable version of their new Juno line for the “musician on the go.” (We swear we don’t write this stuff…)
Weighing just under 12 pounds, the Juno-Di can be played anywhere, anytime via eight Ni-MH AA-size rechargeable batteries. Plug the Juno-Di into a portable amplifier such as the Roland Cube Street or Mobile Cube for instant amplification, or plug in headphones for quiet practice.
The 61-note synth-action Juno-Di boasts over 1,000 diverse customisable sounds to fit any style of music, including grand and electric pianos, modern synth sounds, strings, guitars, brass, percussion, and banks of exotic instruments. Simple navigation with dedicated category buttons and the large LCD display ensures players can recall and perform their favourite sounds on the fly.
In addition to portability, the Juno-Di offers an array of features for the live performer. Process vocals live through its microphone input, built-in vocoder, and dedicated reverb. And with its USB memory port and song player function, the Juno-Di enables direct playback and control of MP3, .WAV, AIFF, and SMF sound files with dedicated transport controls on the front panel.
The Roland Juno-Di will be available in September. No pricing has been announced. More information on the Roland Juno-Di.
