About the Workshop Booklets
Rolands JUNO synthesizers have been making history since the 1980s. Theyve always been affordable, easy to use, and sounded great. The JUNO-Di is designed for performing anywhere. Its super-lightweight, can run on batteries, and it puts everything you need on a gig right at your fingertips. Enjoy the best of the latest performance-oriented sounds from Roland with 128-note polyphony. Use dedicated buttons to quickly split the JUNO-Di keyboard or layer sounds. Shape JUNO-Di sounds as you play with its extensive realtime controls. Play along with audio files or SMFs stored on a USB flash drive, or connect a personal music player. Plug a mic into the JUNO-Di for singing along. With one button-press, configure the JUNO-Di as a controller of other MIDI devices or a computer-based DAW. This Workshop booklet is intended as a companion to the JUNO-Di Owners Manual. It requires JUNO-Di Operating System v1.02 or higher.

Hot Links

Each Workshop booklet is meant to be read in order from beginning to end. However, if we mention an upcoming sectionand you see this arrowyou can click the arrow to jump there immediately.
Setting Up the JUNO-Di Making the Power Connection
You can run your JUNO-Di on standard AC power, or on batteries. Well leave it up to you to choose how you want to power your JUNO-Di for going through this booklet.
Its best not to power up until youve made your audio connections, which well discuss on the next page.

About This Booklet

The JUNO-Dis got a lot of tricks up its sleeve. Though it weighs less than 12 pounds, its packed with sounds and tools youll love having at your fingertips. This booklet takes you on a step-by step tour through its features.

Using an AC Outlet

Assemble the JUNO-Dis two-piece power adaptor.
Understanding the Symbols in This Booklet
Throughout this booklet, youll come across information that deserves special attentionthats the reason its labeled with one of the following symbols.
A note is something that adds information about the topic at hand. 2 3
Plug the AC end into a grounded power outletthe adaptors indicator lights green. Plug the other end into the JUNO-Dis rearpanel DC IN jack.
A tip offers suggestions for using the feature being discussed.
Warnings contain important information that can help you avoid possible damage to your equipment, your data, or yourself.
You can wrap the cable at the DC end of the power adaptor around the cord hook to the left of the DC IN jack to help avoid unintentionally yanking out the plug or damaging the adaptor.

Using Batteries

The JUNO-Di can run for about five hours using eight standard nickelmetal hydride AA-type batteries (purchased separately). With an active USB connection, youll get around four hours of battery operation.
Its lightness, and ability to run on battery power make the JUNO-Di an excellent portable practice instrument for students, or go-anywhere songwriters tool.
Re-attach the compartment door by inserting its far edge, and then gently pressing down the door so its tabs lock in place.
If you reconnect the adaptor while operating on batteries, the JUNO-Di momentarily shuts down to switch power sources.

Running On Batteries

You can lengthen the life of your batteries by turning off the JUNO-Dis display backlight when you dont need it. See Page 21 in the JUNO-Di Owners Manual to learn how to turn off the backlight.
Before you run the JUNO-Di on batteries, disconnect the AC adaptor.

Installing Batteries

On a soft, static-free surface, turn the JUNO-Di onto its face so its bottom is facing you and the battery compartment door is visible.
As you use the JUNO-Di on battery power, the front-panel BATTERY indicator to the left of the display remains unlit unless you to have an issue with your battery power. If the indicator:

lightsyou should replace your batteries as soon as
possible. Your batteries are starting to run low.
flashesyou should replace your batteries immediately, since youre
just about out of battery power. Youll soon see Battery Low! on the display, and you wont be able to play your JUNO-Di.
You shouldnt rely on the behavior of the BATTERY indicatorwhether it lights or flashesto decide when to replace your batteries. If it lights at all, change them as soon as possible.
Gently press the doors tabs inward, and then lift out the door. Insert eight fresh batteries according to the polarity symbols shown in the battery compartment. The JUNO-Di will successfully power up only when youve got the batteries in the correct way.

Setting Up For Listening

You can listen to the JUNO-Di through stereo headphones, a keyboard amp, a mixer, or powered speakers.
We dont recommend listening to the JUNO-Di directly through a home music system since the JUNO-Dis dynamic range may exceed your systems capabilities, and could damage your equipment.
For optimal results, avoid mixing new and old batteries. Fresh batteries are always best, of course.

To listen through

mixer or powered speakersconnect the JUNO-Dis OUTPUT L (MONO)
and R jacks to two of your mixers or speakers input channels.
headphonesconnect your headphones 1/4 plug to
the JUNO-Dis rear-panel PHONES jack. If youre using earbuds or other headphones that have a stereo mini plug, youll need a stereo-mini-to-stereo-1/4 adaptor.
keyboard/guitar ampconnect the JUNO-Di to the amp in mono or
stereo, depending on the amp. If youre using a
mono ampconnect the JUNO-Dis OUTPUT L (MONO) jack to

an amp input.

Powering Up and Setting Your Listening Level
Turn the JUNO-Dis main VOLUME knob all the way down to avoid blasting your ears or system. Press in the JUNO-Dis rear-panel POWER switch to turn on the JUNO-Di. Once the JUNO-Dis finished starting up, youll be on this screen.
stereo ampconnect the JUNO-Dis OUTPUT L (MONO) and R
jacks to the amps left and right inputs, respectively.
Match the battery-powered JUNO-Di with Rolands battery-powered CUBE Street or MOBILE CUBE, and youve got a rig you can take anywhere.
If youre listening on headphones, skip to Step 4. Otherwise, raise the level of your amp, mixer, or speakers to a normal level. As you play the JUNO-Di keyboard, slowly raise the JUNO-Dis VOLUME knob to set your listening level.

You can set up sounds as Favorites that you can grab quickly. Well discuss Favorites later. If youd like to read this section now, click this jump button.
SPLITyou can quickly divide the keyboard into Lower and Upper
zones, with each having its own sound and part settings.
DUALyou can play two patches together, layered on top of each
other across the entire keyboard. Their parts have their own settings here, too.
Realtime Control of Sounds
The JUNO-Dis sounds respond musically to how you play them, and you can also change them as you play using a variety of realtime controls. For the next section, select a patch you like to play. Well use it for trying out the things well discuss.
SUPER LAYERyou can pile multiple copies of the same patch on top of
itself for a single super-fat sound. You can also detune them from each other to make the overall sound even bigger.
Well discuss the Split, Dual, and Super Layer features in detail later on. If you want to go there now, click the Jump button to the right.
The Responsive JUNO-Di Keyboard
The JUNO-Dis keyboard detects the force, or velocity, with which you play, and the currently selected sound changes accordingly.

Selecting Sounds

You select sounds on the JUNO-Di using the buttons beneath the display. To select a

Low velocity

High velocity
Getting louder and/or brighter as you play harder is one of the most common velocity responses, though, really, lots of things can change with your playing force. Try playing the patch youve selected and see how it responds sonically to your touch.
If you find you have to play uncomfortably hard or unnaturally soft to make the sounds react, you can change the keyboards touch sensitivity, as described on Page 75 of the JUNO-Di Owners Manual.

Once youve got the desired type of sound, turn the Value dial to select the specific sound youre looking for.
You can check out the currently selected sound by playing the keyboard, or by pressing the PREVIEW button in the MODE/MIC area so the JUNO-Di plays the sound for you.

The Pitch Bend/Modulation Lever
The next most basic way to control a patchs sound in realtime is by using the Pitch Bend/Modulation lever to the left of the keyboard. Flip the lever left or right to lower or raise the pitch of notes, or push it forward to add modulation to the notes. Modulationwhich means changeis often vibrato, but can be most anything depending on how the patch is programmed.
The REVERB knobUse this knob to increase or decrease the output
level of the JUNO-Dis reverb processor.
The SOUND MODIFY knobs affect the currently selected patch or rhythm set. If youre using the Dual or Super Layer features they affect the entire sound. When youre playing a standard performance, they affect the currently selected part. For more details on the SOUND MODIFY knobs, see Page 65 of the Owners Manual.

Transposing the Keyboard

The JUNO-Dis Transpose features allow you to easily shift the notes the keyboard plays to any key or octave, allowing you to play in any key using the fingerings you find most comfortable.

The JUNO-Dis Transpose feature raises or lowers the pitch of the current sound. If youre using the Split or Dual features, it affects the pitch of the currently selected part. If youre playing a standard performance, it also affects the pitch of the current part.
Quickly Creating a Two-Sound Split
When you create a simple split using the JUNO-Dis Dual feature, the keyboard is divided into Lower and Upper zones, each of which plays its own sound. Heres how to use the Split feature.

Quick Access to Favorite Sounds and Performances
The JUNO-Dis Favorite feature allows you to set up frequently used patches, rhythm sets, and performances for quick recall by registering them as Favorites. Any Favorite can be easily grabbed at any time.
To use a split, Dual layer, or Super Layer as a Favorite, youll need to write its temporary performance into the JUNO-Dis memory first.
Registering a Sound or Performance as a Favorite
Select the patch, rhythm set, or performance you want to register as a Favorite. If youre not already there, navigate to the desired bank as described in the previous section. Hold down the FAVORITE ON/OFF button and press a 0-9 button to register the current patch, rhythm set, or performance there. The JUNO-Di confirms what youve done with an onscreen message.

You can have up to 100 Favorites, organized into Favorite Banks 0-9. Each bank holds 10 Favorites, called Favorites 0-9. Each Favorite in a bank is assigned, or registered, to the corresponding 0-9 button beneath the display.
To change the Favorite registered to a 0-9 button, just register the buttons new Favorite there.
Selecting a Favorite Sound or Performance
When youre onstage, youll have a bank selected and ready to go so you can quickly recall the Favorites it holds. To make this happen, youll group your Favorites ahead of time in the way you expect to need them onstage. For example, if there are 10 patches, rhythm sets, or performances you know youll need in a set, register them all in the same Favorites bank so you can get to each one instantly as you play by pressing its 0-9 button. The JUNO-Di remembers your Favorites even when you power down. Only a Factory Reset clears them.
If youre not already there, navigate to the desired Favorites bank as described in To Select a Favorites Bank, above. Press the FAVORITE ON/OFF button so its lit if its not already. Press a Favorites 0-9 button to select, or recall, the Favorite you want.
You can also move through Favorites using a footswitchsee Page 47 of the Owners Manual for details.

JUNO-Di Synth Performance Tools
Both the JUNO-Dis Arpeggiator and Chord Memory features automate the playing of phrases that might otherwise be difficult to pull off onstage. They can also act as inspiring creative tools.
To Select a Favorites Bank
Press the FAVORITE BANK button so it lights. Press the desired Favorite banks 0-9 buttonits name appears in the display, and the button flashes for a moment, at which point the banks button and the BANK button turn off.

The Arpeggiator

The arpeggiator takes notes you play on the keyboard and generates a preprogrammed phrase based on those notes. Each of these phrases is called a style. The JUNO-Di contains 128 styles. Arpeggios can be great for creating repeating patterns such as those used in dance music, and can also produce automatic bass lines that begin with the note you play on the keyboard. Lets explore how arpeggios work on the JUNO-Di.

Chord Memory

The JUNO-Dis Chord Memory feature generates a chord based on a single key you play on the keyboard. The chord can be set up to play its notes in several ways. A chord set is an octaves worth of chord structures assigned to keysthe actual notes they play are based on the key youre in. There are 17 factory chord sets. Lets try out this feature using the first GUITAR/BASS patch, 001 JUNO Nylon.
Start by selecting a polyphonic patchSynth Patch 017: Jump Poly. To turn on the arpeggiator, press the ARPEGGIO button so it lights and the ARPEGGIO screen appears.
Turn on the Chord Memory feature, by pressing the CHORD MEMORY button so it lightsthe CHORD MEMORY screen appears. Chord Set parameter
On the ARPEGGIO screen, you can customize the arpeggio to be played in a variety of ways, as explained on Page 67 of the Owners Manual.
Hold down some notes on the keyboard and try out the available arpeggio styles. As you listen, move your fingers around to different keys to hear how your notes interact with the current arpeggiator style.
There are three parameters on this screen you can use for getting just the chord form you want. The first parameter allows you to select the chord set that the Chord Memory feature is to use.
See Page 125 in the Owners Manual lists the chords each key plays in the factory chord sets. (The chart shows the chords for the key of C.) 2
If youd like to play some notes and then just let go as the arpeggiator takes over, turn the Arpeggio Hold parameter on. 5 6
Adjust the Chord Set parameter to try out different sets as you play some keys on the keyboard and listen to the chords each one contains. Set the KEY parameter to select the actual key of your song. Each sets chords are automatically transposed into the key you select. The Roll Type parameter is what makes CHORD MEMORY so useful for playing guitar sounds. By default, its set to UP, which means that the notes in the chord are played as a quick glissando from the lowest key to the highest, like a standard guitar strum. You can also select DOWN so they go in the opposite direction, ALT so the JUNO-Di alternates between upward and downward glisses, and OFF if you want the notes in a chord to be played at the same time, with no roll.
Let go of the keysor turn off Arpeggio Holdwhen youre done experimenting. Select the monophonic Synth Patch 023: Hot Coffee. It plays one note at a time, no matter how many keys you press. The arpeggiator does some very interesting things to mono patches. Play around a bit more with the arpeggio styles as you play different notes with Hot Coffee. To turn the arpeggiator off, press the ARPEGGIO button again to unlight it.
The JUNO-Di as a MIDI Controller
The JUNO-Di is a natural as a MIDI controller you can use for playing external MIDI sound modules, soft synths on a computer, or sequencing in a computer-based digital audio workstation (DAW). In fact, with its light weight, battery power, onboard sounds, and USB MIDI connectivity, the JUNO-Di makes an killer road or stage companion for a laptop, providing you with a totally portable performance/sequencing system. You can connect the JUNO-Dis MIDI OUT jack to any device that has a MIDI IN jack using a MIDI cable, or exchange MIDI messages with a computer using a USB cable. To learn more, see the Using the JUNO-Di with a Computer Workshop booklet.

Before connecting the JUNO-Di via USB to a computer for MIDI communication, youve got to install its USB driver on the computer. The Using the JUNO-Di with a Computer Workshop booklet describes the installation process in detail.
Make sure the REVERB button is lit to hear the effect, since pressing SHIFT and REVERB to get to this screen turns off the REVERB button.
To display all of the MIC IN SETTINGS screens parameters, use the 6 and 5 buttons.

On this screen, you can:

Using the JUNO-Di Vocoder
The JUNO-Dis vocoder effect allows you to control the shape of notes you play on the keyboard by speaking or singing into your mic. Heres how to use it.
Using a Microphone with the JUNO-Di
The JUNO-Di has a MIC IN jack, a mini-mixer, and a vocoder that uses the mic for shaping notes played on the keyboard. Theres a 1/4 phone-type jack on the back of the JUNO-Di for connecting your mic. The MODE/MIC area of the JUNO-Di front panel contains MIC IN controls for your mic. You can:
Select the VOCAL/PAD patch 036: VOCODER Ens.
Though VOCODER Ens is a good place to start, you can also use VOCAL/ PAD 034 VOCODER Robt or 035 VOCODER Chr, or PERFORM 60, 61, and 62, which are bass, organ, and pad vocoder sounds, respectively.
Set your mics levelusing the MIC IN VOLUME
Add reverb to the micby pressing and lighting the
MIC IN REVERB button. Hold down SHIFT and press the MIC IN areas REVERB button to display the MIC IN SETTINGS screen.
What makes the JUNO-Di vocoder work is one of its multi-effects (or MFX). You can actually vocode any JUNO-Di sound by setting the MFX to 79:VOCODER, as explained on Page 61 of the Owners Manual. 2
Hold down some keys on the keyboard and sing or speak into the micyoure singing or speaking the JUNO-Dis notes. Try tweaking the vocoders settings to optimize the effect for your mic and voice, as described on Page 43 of the Owners Manual. 12
The Song Player Side of the JUNO-Di
Now that weve discussed the JUNO-Di as a synthesizer, lets discuss its Song Player tools. The Song Player brings a few different things to the table:
How To Play Rhythm Patterns To start playing a rhythm patternpress its pad. The pad lights and the

pattern begins playing.

To switch to another rhythm patternpress the desired rhythm patterns
pad. The JUNO-Di immediately switches to the new rhythm pattern.
You can play along with rhythm patterns played by the

PLAY/STOP button.

You can play songs in.WAV, AIFF, MP3, and/or SMF (Standard MIDI File)
format stored on a USB memory stick.
Setting the Rhythm Pattern Tempo
You can connect a personal music player or CD player and play along with

its music.

Press the TAP TEMPO button to open the Tempo window.
Playing Rhythm Patterns on the JUNO-Di
The JUNO-Di contains rhythm patternsbeatsthat are perfect for playing along with onstage. Its got 24 Preset rhythm patterns, and you can adjust the tempo of any pattern. Rhythm patterns are arranged in rhythm groups, which are sets of six stylistically related rhythm patterns, along with a rhythm set thats preprogrammed to play them. To use the Rhythm Pattern feature, press the SONG PLAYER RHYTHM PATTERN button so it lights and the RHYTHM PATTERN screen is displayed.
Set the tempo as desired by
tapping it outon the TAP TEMPO button. setting the Tempo parameterusing the VALUE dial. The Rhythm Pattern Transport Buttons
While the RHYTHM PATTERN screen is displayed, the transport buttons in the SONG PLAYER area allow you to to navigate rhythm patterns. Heres what they do: Press this to go to the previous rhythm pattern. Press this to go to the next rhythm pattern.
The JUNO-Di Rhythm Patterns
While the RHYTHM PATTERN screen is displayed, Category Buttons 1-6 directly beneath the display light to act as rhythm pads. Each one triggers playback of one of the rhythm patterns in the current rhythm group. Use this button to start playback of the lastselected rhythm pattern, or stop playback of the currently playing rhythm pattern.
Setting the Rhythm Pattern Level
As a rhythm pattern plays, you can adjust its volume by pressing the SONG PLAYERs LEVEL button, and then turning the Value dial to set its volume as desired.
Change messages embedded in the file. An SMF can be no larger than roughly 240 kb in size, and if an SMF contains System Exclusive (SysEx) data, that data must have a packet size of 512 or less.
To learn more about MIDI, SMFs, and SysEx data, see Rolands An Introduction to MIDI InFocus booklet, which you can download here.

Selecting Rhythm Sets

Though each rhythm group contains a preferred rhythm set, you can use any rhythm set you like with any rhythm. To change rhythm sets, highlight the name of the current rhythm set on the RHYTHM PATTERN screen, and turn the VALUE dial to select another set.
Using the Playlist Editor on Your Computer
The included computer-based Playlist Editor software allows you to build playlists that place audio and MP3 songs in the order you want. The JUNO-Di can then play these playlists. The Playlist Editor comes with its own documentation, so well just take a quick look at it now.

If you want to play individual songs without using a playlist, you can copy the song files to your USB stick on your computer without putting them into any folders on the USB stick.
Playing Along with Songs on a USB Drive
If youve got a personal computer, you can load songs onto a JUNO-Di-formatted USB memory stick, and the JUNO-Di can play them. This makes it easy to perform along with prerecorded tracks.
To learn how to initialize, or format, a USB stick for the JUNO-Di, see Page 78 in the Owners Manual. You can also use a USB stick for backing up your own data, as explained on Page 77 of the Owners Manual.
Before Launching the Playlist Editor
Youll need to install the Playlist Editor on your computer according to its installers instructionsthe softwares on the CD that came with your JUNO-Di.
We recommend using the Roland M-UF1G USB memory stick. Any standard USB memory stick should work, though Roland obviously cant guarantee the quality of other manufacturers products.
Using the Playlist Editor
When the Playlist Editor launches, youll see:
The JUNO-Dis Song Player lets you play along with a variety of audio and MIDI file types. You can play
MP3 filesat a 44.1 kHz sample rate. The JUNO-Di stage plays MP3s
with a range of bit rates, as listed on Page 71 of the Owners Manual.
