Your music could take you anywhere – and weighing as little as 5.3kg (JUNO-DS61), the light and compact JUNO-DS series is ready to go with you. Public transport, cramped stages and busy studios are no problem for these mobile synths, which combine pro features with a space-saving setup. From club shows using AC power to street performance with optional battery operation and a battery-powered keyboard amp, the JUNO-DS is your new wingman.
Find the perfect sound in seconds, and play for hours...
Ditch the manual with the JUNO-DS. This intuitive synth series makes it easy to get up and running. Choose your favorite pro-quality sound from nine categories including piano, organ, and synth – and simply connect to an amp or PA system to share your music with the world. It’s not rocket science.
The flexibility to make every gig your best performance yet.
The JUNO-DS makes it easy to find your signature sound. Select the performance mode and you can set up advanced sounds like layering strings onto the acoustic piano, or assigning organ and bass to right and left hand.
No bandmates, no problem – jam with realistic-sounding, drums, guitar and bass.
When your bandmates can’t make it to the rehearsal or gig, the JUNO-DS offers the perfect solution, covering the missing parts and giving you a full-band sound. Using the phrase pads, you can bring instant beats to your music by playing along with the authentic drum patterns, or copy audio data (MP3/WAV) onto the USB memory and play it back at the gig. It’s a flexible feature that means you’ll always have a full and professional sound – whether you’re in a band or a solo performer.
