    Here's what Roland say about the Juno-DS 88

    Mobile Design and Stage-Ready Sounds

    The JUNO-DS88 is an ideal keyboard for all types of players, from performing pros and weekend warriors to music producers and home hobbyists. It also excels in teaching labs and other music education environments. Easy to carry and easy to use, the JUNO-DS88 is filled with great Roland sounds for any style or genre, and versatile battery or AC operation gives you the flexibility to play anytime and anywhere.

    Top-Quality Pianos, Organs, and More  

    Acoustic pianos, electric pianos, and organs are bread and butter for most performing keyboardists. In the JUNO-DS88, the pianos have been newly enhanced with improved sound and response, and there are even more organs to choose from. In addition to this new DS Tone Bank, the instrument includes the entire 1000-plus sound set from the previous-generation JUNO-Di, and patches from that keyboard are fully compatible with the JUNO-DS88. 

    Weighted Keys for an Authentic Piano Feel 

    The JUNO-DS88 features 88 weighted-action keys, a first in the long history of the JUNO series. Roland’s Ivory Feel-G Keyboard with progressive hammer action is an ideal complement to the expressive new piano sounds, providing high-end touch and playability while still keeping the instrument light and mobile. This makes the JUNO-DS88 an obvious choice for pro players, as well as piano students looking for a portable, versatile instrument to learn on. 

    Enhanced Editing and Hands-On Controls

    One thing that’s made the JUNO series a players’ favourite is its instant-access design, which makes it easy to call up fantastic sounds right away. But if you like to dig in and customize, the JUNO-DS88 now offers even more adjustable parameters than before, allowing you to tweak patches and performances with detailed precision. The front panel provides an expanded array of hands-on knobs and sliders for creating patches and adjusting sounds as you perform, while the rear panel features jacks for connecting hold and expression pedals at the same time.  

    Wave Expansion Slot for Adding New Sounds

    To complement its impressive onboard sound set, the JUNO-DS88 supports internal waveform expansion via USB for unlimited tonal range. Over 1000 EXP sounds are available for free download at Roland’s Axial website, including top-quality acoustic piano collections, world instruments, go-to studio standards, percussion, loops, and more. If don’t find what you need there, it’s even possible to load in WAV files from your personal library and play them from the keyboard! Out of the box, the JUNO-DS88 comes with the versatile EXP-06 Studio Collection preloaded in the wave expansion slot.

    Phrase Pads for Triggering Songs and Samples

    With the JUNO-DS88’s eight Phrase Pads, you can supplement your keyboard performances with samples or music files stored on USB memory. Just load up the pads with whatever you like—one-shot samples, vocals, sound effects, loops, or complete music tracks—and trigger them with a quick touch when needed.    

    Mic Input with Vocoder and Auto Pitch

    If you’re a solo performer or singer/songwriter, you’ll love the JUNO-DS88’s mic input, which lets you get great vocal sounds without having to carry around extra gear. There’s a dedicated vocal reverb, plus Auto Pitch for singing with the “stepped” electronic vocal effect popular in today’s music. The built-in vocoder is big fun too, allowing you to sing into a mic and control the tone and pitch via sounds played on the keyboard.

    Eight-Track Pattern Sequencer

    When you have an idea for a song or beat, you can easily capture and develop it with the onboard pattern sequencer. The intuitive, non-stop operation won’t interrupt your creative flow, letting you build up full arrangements with multiple sounds in no time. The sequencer is also perfect for enhancing live performances with pre-made backing music and on-the-fly looping. 

    Music Production Partner

    The JUNO-DS88 is not only great on stage—it works great for computer music production as well. The integrated USB interface provides a solid front end for a mobile or studio recording setup, allowing you to record MIDI and audio data, including sounds from the mic input. There’s even a dedicated DAW Control mode for controlling your music software from the JUNO-DS88’s front panel.

    Mr ADRIAN UBIAGA13th Mar 2021

    The keybed feels great. The weight and the touch (ivory feeling) is amazing. I have other keyboards at home, other brands, double price, and the touch, in my personal opinion, is not as good as the Juno. Perfect for acoustic piano professionals and students. A lot of nice sounds inside. Another great sounds from Axial website for free. Easy to use.

    I bought this as a replacement for a piano and unfortunately it’s still not quite there, but I’m sure I will adapt in time. On the plus side, of course I’ve discovered some really inspirational sounds that will help me to compose differently in the future.

    Phil Best17th Sep 2016

    I love the G action on this Roland Synth - it's very much to my taste. I actually prefer it to many more expensive stage pianos. I considered buying the A-88 (which has the same action) but the looks and extra features of the Jun DS88 won me over.
