Ideal for all players from performing pros to music producers and home hobbyists. Easy to carry and use, the Juno-DS88 is filled with great Roland sounds for any genre, and versatile battery or AC operation giving you the flexibility to play anytime and anywhere.
Pianos are newly enhanced in the Juno-DS88 with improved sound and response. In addition to the new DS Tone Bank, the instrument includes the entire 1000-plus sound set from the previous-generation Juno-Di, and patches from that are compatible with the Juno-DS88.
Juno's instant-access design makes it the players' favourite. If you like to dig in and customise, the Juno-DS88 now offers even more adjustable parameters, allowing you to tweak patches and performances with precision. Create patches and adjust sounds as you perform with the expanded array of hands-on knobs and sliders on the front panel.
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. It's even possible to load in WAV files and play them from the keyboard. The Juno-DS88 comes with the versatile EXP-06 Studio Collection preloaded.
Supplement your performances with samples or music files stored on USB memory with the eight Phrase Pads. Load up the pads with one-shot samples, vocals, sound effects, loops, or complete music tracks - and trigger them with a quick touch.
Solo performers will love the Juno-DS88's mic input which allows great vocal sounds without extra gear. There's a dedicated vocal reverb, plus Auto Pitch for singing with the "stepped" electronic vocal effect popular in today's music. You can also sing into a mic and control the tone and pitch via sounds played on the keyboard with the built-in vocoder.
When you have an idea, 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.
The Juno-DS88 is great for computer music production as well as live stage use. Record MIDI and audio data including sounds from the mic input with the integrated USB interface, providing a solid front end for a mobile or studio recording setup. There's even a dedicated DAW Control mode for controlling your music software from the Juno-DS88's front panel.
Thanks to unique new power circuitry developed by Roland, you can enjoy clean headroom and quality sound at a level that's impossible with any other battery-powered amp. The output power is adjustable in three levels-Max (50 W), Normal (25 W), and Eco (10 W)- allowing you to conserve battery life in situations where you don't need maximum power. In Eco mode, 8 AA Ni-MH batteries will last up to 20 hours! The CUBE Street EX can also be powered with the included AC adapter if required.
The CUBE Street EX has an on-board mixer with four independent channels, providing connectivity options for all performers. Mic/Instrument and Mic/Guitar channels feature XLR/TRS combo jacks to support microphones or devices with 1/4-inch outputs, and each channel is outfitted with its own three-band EQ and reverb effect for discrete sound shaping. The mono/stereo Line In channel is equipped with 1/4-inch jacks, while the Audio In channel provides a stereo 1/8-inch mini jack that also supports i-CUBE LINK. If you fill up all the channels, you can use the rear-panel Aux In jack to connect an additional mono device if needed.
The CUBE Street EX makes it easy for guitarists to plug in and get pro sounds immediately. COSM tones for electric guitar include Lead, Crunch, and Clean, plus an Acoustic Simulator for extra versatility from a single axe. There's also an AC preamp optimised for acoustic/electric guitar and a convenient built-in tuner. Chorus/delay and reverb effects are available as well, and these can be turned on/off with optional footswitches while performing.
Roland's innovative i-CUBE LINK interface lets you incorporate your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch into your performances. i-CUBE LINK connects to your device's audio jack with the included cable, providing two-way communication with your favourite music apps. Roland's free CUBE JAM app is an ideal partner, allowing you to play along with music tracks from your iTunes library and record the CUBE Street EX's output right back into the app. CUBE JAM also includes a number of useful functions for practice, jamming, and performing, such as independent pitch/speed adjustment and Centre Cancel for minus-one playing and karaoke.
When placed on the ground, the CUBE Street EX's angled back provides excellent monitoring for performing in street situations and on larger stages. With the handy Stereo Link function, two CUBE Street EX units can be used together to create a powerful stereo PA with up to 8 separate inputs.
The CUBE Street EX features a high-strength ABS injection-moulded body that's passed rigorous durability testing, ensuring reliability in all kinds of outdoor performing situations. It's also surprisingly light, making the amp a breeze to carry from gig to gig.
