JUNO-STAGE sets a new standard for powerful onstage performance at a friendly price. Carefully crafted for the stage, JUNO-STAGE's factory patch set covers a wide range of essential sounds, including the flagship 88-key stereo multi-sampled piano. Every JUNO-STAGE can also be expanded and customized via two Roland SRX Wave Expansion Boards (sold separately). Onstage, you need quick and effortless access to your patches. JUNO-STAGE is equipped with FAVORITE buttons for instant access to banks of your most-needed sounds. Best of all, you can also recall your patches via a dual footswitch (optional) connected to a dedicated Patch Select jack, so you never have to take your hands off the keyboard.

Located above the pitch bender, two assignable switches can be used for rotary organ effects, portamento on/off, and more. JUNO-STAGE is equipped with a USB port and Song Player function that enables direct playback and control of backing tracks from a USB key. You can play MP3, WAV, AIFF, and SMF files, and even use the Center Cancel feature to minimize pre-recorded vocals of audio data for karaoke-style performance. Creating and editing audio Playlists is simple with the supplied Playlist Editor software for PC; the playlist can be viewed on JUNO-STAGE's display.
