A software editor is also provided if you prefer more advanced editing via PC.
With so many sounds on board, it could be a daunting task to find what you need. But fear not the JUNO-Di simplifies the process of finding sounds with its dedicated category buttons. If you want a piano, for example, just press the Piano button. You can even assign your most-used sounds to the Favourite buttons for instant access. Editing is easy too. If you want to create layers or splits, dedicated buttons and the large LCD make the process fast and friendly. And do not forget the on board rhythm patterns, which can be easily adjusted on the fly with a dedicated tempo control. It is a great tool for practice and performance.
The JUNO-Di was born to travel. It is strong yet amazingly lightweight (only 5.2kg) making it easy to lift and carry. The battery compatibility lets you play for up to five hours without plugging in (uses Ni-MH AA-size rechargeable batteries). When used in conjunction with a battery-powered amp such as Roland is famous CUBE Street or MOBILE CUBE, the JUNO-Di can be played and heard anywhere. A battery-life indicator on the front panel ensures that you will not lose power unexpectedly.
More than meets the eye, the JUNO-Di lets you plug a microphone into its external input and process your voice through the built-in vocoder. A dedicated reverb is assigned to the input, so you can add lush ambience to your voice without taking away from the main on board effects. Sing along with your performances and transform your voice in colourful and creative ways, from silky smooth to sci-fi robotic.

Additionally, the Centre Cancel feature lets you sing along karaoke-style with audio files in the Song Player for a complete entertainment experience. You can also connect MP3 players directly to the JUNO-Di through its external input.
