Either way, settings are saved with your eight-track song. This integrates well with the physical inputs so you can route audio to your DAW, and it’s also possible to route your DAW output to the recorder if you like, as well as monitor via the main outputs. The underlying unit is pretty straightforward, but still features over sounds called “live sets” derived from the MB of onboard ROM; impressive stuff. 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.

Pros Lightweight and generally easy to use. The Gi uses this for recording the eight-track’s audio and for data backup, and thankfully they include a 2GB pre-formatted card so you’re ready to record straight out of the box.
Roland – Juno Gi
So, is the Juno Gi considerably better than the Juno G and worthy juo its reasonably steep price tag? This allows you to record directly from the synth or from external sources using the back panel inputs. Front-panel wise there’s a lot crammed in with all available space used up.
So light in fact, that it can easily be picked up with one hand. 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.
You can use this simply as a guide or construct more complicated arrangements to accompany your eight-track audio. As mentioned, editing requires you to enter the Gi’s menu world and this is less speedy.
In fairness to the Gi, the presets themselves are generally very good and the new extra-large ROM means there’s something for every purpose.
Although having said that, there are plenty of options in there if you have the time and patience, and for some quick results I headed straight for the onboard effects.
It’s slightly annoying that there’s no more than EQ, Reverb and filter controls on the front. Preset which can’t be edited Special Live Sets which are complex layered sounds that can comprise auto accompanying chords, arpeggios, rhythms and other sounds and User, which is where you store all your edited sounds.
If you’re used to quick hands-on jumo to envelopes or effects then this sort of approach can feel like a step back. In use I thought some of these were excellent and others less inspiring. This integrates well with the physical inputs so you can route audio to your DAW, and it’s also possible to route your DAW output to the recorder if you like, as well as monitor via the main outputs.
Either way, settings are saved with your eight-track song. Finally, there’s rolznd chord memory and arpeggiator section. Image 1 of 3 There’s a lot crammed in to the front-panel, with all available space taken up with the Rolane various controls and tools. Post a comment Machine Love: The end result is a bit WAV file and can be imported to your computer for burning to a CD, or for further editing.
First up, the recorder and sound set are great, and if you’re a live performer or spend time out on the road, couple it with a laptop and you’ve got an enormously flexible iuno. There are a number of further features worth mentioning.
However, the Gi has most sounds covered, and although there may not be anything particularly unusual here, that’s not really what they’re trying to achieve. So on balance I would say it would suit a keyboardist more than programmer.

Xosar “We have these demons inside of us and making music is a way of exorcising them. The patronisingly sexist Mirror is part of the Taiwanese tech company’s “fancy series.

Roland Juno-Gi review | MusicRadar
If you need a motherload of useful, current and frequently impressive ‘synth sounds’ and need them ‘quick and easy’ then the Gi is ideal. Although as mentioned you can also route audio from your connected DAW and simply record it.

Certainly some sounds that have velocity layers react a little unpredictably – we were really expecting something more responsive and expensive-feeling at this price point.
