Roland Juno-D Limited Edition

Just when I thought the Roland Juno-D couldn’t possibly get any better Roland have thrown a curve ball and crammed more awesome sounds into their already incredibly good value for money package. This might be somewhat disappointing for anyone who has just bought a vanilla Juno-D, but remember you’ve still bought into the best budget Synth on the market.

The Roland Juno-D Limited Edition, looks and feels the same as the regular Juno-D, the only difference is in the sounds. Roland have packed in a realistic multi-sampled 88-note piano which puts the Juno-Ds old piano patches to shame and sounds exceptionally good for such a low-end synth. (Yes, I have tested it for myself) The piano patch isn’t the only new sound, however, the Juno-D limited edition also boasts new organ patches recorded by none other than Jon Lord plus some vintage synth sounds and electric pianos. Some of the new synth sounds are excellent and do exceptionally well to compliment the Juno-D’s already fantastic set of sounds.

If you’ve been eyeing the Juno-D then the Limited Edition should really be the icing on the cake for you. I will either be replacing or complimenting my existing Juno-D with this beauty shortly.
