Roland’s new addition to Juno line, the Roland JUNO-Gi Mobile Synthesizer with Digital Recorder Keyboard. The Juno-Gi brings the synthesizer into another level of realism. This highly portable power-synth keyboard’s super-charged features include 61-keys with velocity, more than 1,300 high quality fresh sounds; instrument sounds and musical styles, maximum 128 voices Polyphony, Tone Category buttons, enlarge LCD display, Live Sets; four-way splits and layers, eight-track digital recorder with 64 virtual tracks; enable multi-track digital recording, BOSS GT-Series professional guitar effects, USB audio/MIDI interface, Controllers; powerful mod, pitch bend, and D BEAM, Cakewalk Sonar LE 8.5 software.

The Juno-Gi comes with a whopping 1,379 high quality brand new sounds derived from 128 MB ROM and the sounds are organized into Live Sets. Live Sets are made up of 788 custom tones, 256 General MIDI-compatible tones and 256 user-created Live Sets . A Live Set or a multi-patch sound preset, can have up to four tones, and tones can be layered. And the keyboard can be split into four zones, each playing from one to four tones with ease. With 1,379 presets sounds, selecting the sounds you want is also a breeze. User can search sounds according to individual’s criteria by filtering base on type of sound; Rhythm, Piano, Electric Piano, Keyboard/Organ, Bass, Guitar/Plucked, Strings/Orchestra, Brass/Wind, Vocal/Choir, Synth/Pad, and FX/Others. Additionally, user can also filter and organize presets by Favorites.

Roland Juno-Gi’s new and unique 8 track digital recorder is my favorite among all. The digital recorder brings the Juno-Gi beyond merely a performance keyboard into a viable and powerful compositional tool. The 8 track digital recorder can store a maximum of 99 songs. User can record any one song directly to a single SDHC card for up to 192 hours of possible recording time with a single 32 GB card. A special ninth track is reserved for built-in rhythm patterns. User can select from hundreds of drum and percussion grooves built into the Juno-Gi, or creates own patterns and styles on the pattern-edit screen. When you lay out the structure of your piece within the arrange window by selecting and repeating rhythm patterns, this quickly and easily creates a bed to record your tracks over. Roland Juno-Gi‘s sound quality is excellent and can simply be recorded with a mic or guitar, or enhance with insert effects or pro guitar effects. Simply plug into the line and record, and up to two tracks can be recorded simultaneously, then master and export your mix to the Juno-Gi’s SDHC card and transfer it to your computer by using an SD card reader.

We never know when inspiration will strike, and having a simple and effective device to harness ones musical ideas is a wonderful thing. The Mobile Synthesizer is a powerful composition tool that is handy, easy to use, with abundance and high quality sounds and quite reasonably priced. The portable keyboard is ideal for professional singer songwriter on the go, live performance and keyboardist. The lightweight Roland Juno-Gi Synthesizer can be battery-powered and weigh merely 5.7 kg.

Cons: Limited tone editing capabilities. No editor software.

Yamaha TYROS 4 Arranger Workstation



The new Yamaha Tyros 4 Arranger Workstation Keyboard is an upgrade of Tyros 3. The Yamaha Tyros 4 features 61 keys FSX keyboard, 128-note Polyphony, 500 preset accompaniment styles powered by new Super Articulation and Mega voices, Super Articulation 2 Voices, Effects; Reverb, Chorus, DSP, Master Compressor, Master EQ and Part EQ, Controllers; Pitch bend and Modulation wheels, and Multi pads, Music Finder, One Touch setting (OTS), audio recorder and playback, TFT color display.

The Tyros 4 new Super Articulation pianos add more dynamic layers along with body resonance and hammer noise to create what can only be classed as a truly stunning piano, especially for a keyboard. The piano sounds are now Super Articulation sounds. Yamaha have also changed the velocity curve i.e.,  when you are playing the new sounds the dynamics are better to control and more naturally responsive than ever before. There are a lot of new sounds to the Tyros 4 and Yamaha has enhanced certain areas that had been long overdue and this next-generation Tyros can reproduce instruments and arrangements from over 500 different styles of music from around the world with the press of a button. Additionally,  you can also play the piano on its own without any other sounds or styles playing as the piano sound has being very well enhanced on the Tyros 4. The new 70 piece string/orchestra is amazing. With more accurate sampling and sound design, Yamaha have split the orchestral layers up the keyboard from bass through to violins so as you play the 61- note keyboard, it sounds as if a true orchestra is playing. Another newly enhanced feature is the Vocal Harmony 2 (VH2), using a new proper balanced TRS input, the new harmonizer breaks boundaries into new levels of quality and features. With Synth Vocoder features, now the vocoder will make an electronic emulation of your voice controlled by the notes you are playing and this is an icing on the cake. And with a host of uses and especially with the new high quality DSP processing on vocal section it truly topped off the Yamaha Tyros 4.

The Yamaha Tyros 4 is simply powerful. After two years of development Yamaha has done it again. And the new arranger workstation can simply blows the Tyros 3 away. If you are still doubtful about the Tyros 4 perhaps, you have not hear the keyboard or you could not hear what everyone else can hear. The portable keyboard weigh merely 14.5 kg.
