The JUNO-Gi as Your MIDI Controller
In MIDI Controller mode, you can use the JUNO-Gi as a multitimbral sound module, playing up to 16 of its tones and rhythms at once via MIDI from a DAW. Since the JUNO-Gi also acts as a master MIDI controller, you can use its keyboard for sequencing the DAW MIDI tracks that play the JUNO-Gis sounds. You can also play General MIDI files on your computer and use the JUNO-Gis built-in General MIDI 2 tones as its sounds.

In its easy-to-use MIDI Controller mode, the JUNO-Gi can act as the master controller for your DAW system. Play the DAWs soft synths from the JUNO-Gi and shape their sound in realtime using the JUNO-Gis knobs, sliders, and buttons. The JUNO-Gi can also play sounds in any external MIDI device connected to your computer (including itself ). Well discuss MIDI Controller mode in Using the JUNO-Gi as a Master MIDI Controller on page 7.
Of course, you can use another MIDI controllersuch as a Roland OCTAPAD SPD-30 digital percussion pad or other keyboard controller if you prefer.
When you use the JUNO-Gi as a sound module, you can send its output to audio tracks in your DAW for recording via the same USB connection you use for MIDI communication. 3

Important JUNO-Gi MIDI Stuff
One MIDI device communicates with another MIDI device using a series of MIDI messages, as explained in the InFocus booklet An Introduction to MIDI. The JUNO-Gi uses these messages when youre using it as a
a DAWs master MIDI controllerIn this role, the JUNO-Gi sends your
computer note-event messages as you play the JUNO-Gi keyboard. In addition, many of its front-panel controls can send Control Change messages to your DAW that let you manipulate sounds in realtime. It can also send sound-selection messages that you can sequence in a DAW MIDI trackwhen the track is played back, it can send out these messages to external devices like the JUNO-Gi, or other connected MIDI sound modules.
You can save your MIDI Controller mode setup in the JUNO-Gis memory at any time so your settings are instantly available when you enter the mode. To save your setup, press the JUNO-Gis WRITE button, as noted at the topright of the MIDI Controller mode screen.
multitimbral sound moduleAs a multitimbral sound module, the
JUNO-Gi responds to note-event messages and Control Change messages. Your DAW can also select the JUNO-Gi sounds you want by sending the JUNO-Gi Bank Select and Program Change messages. Well discuss these more later.
The JUNO-Gi can transmit MIDI messages on any of the 16 MIDI channels to your DAW. By default, it uses MIDI Channel 1, though you can change it to any MIDI channel you like. Just make sure that the DAW is set to
receive data on the same MIDI channel, or receive MIDI data on any and all channels.
Using the JUNO-Gi as a Master MIDI Controller Life In MIDI Controller Mode
Once youve installed its drivers, connected to your computer via USB, and your computer and JUNO-Gi are powered up, switch the JUNO-Gi into MIDI Controller mode to use it as your DAWs master MIDI controller. (You also use MIDI Controller mode when youre playing JUNO-Gi tones from your DAW.) Press the MIDI CTRL (for CONTROL) button on the JUNO-Gi to display the MIDI Controller mode screen.
The Local Switch settingshown onscreen as Local Swsets whether the JUNO-Gi keyboard plays its own sounds in MIDI Controller mode or not. When your DAWs using JUNO-Gi sounds, leave this set to Off, since youll play its sounds through the DAW. If you turn Local Sw on when using the JUNO-Gi as both the DAWs master controller and sound module, youll hear each JUNO-Gi note twice, once from the DAW and once from the JUNO-Gi.
This screen determines the behavior of the JUNO-Gi in MIDI Controller mode, with some important settings and features. 7
When you press one of the JUNO-Gis 0-9 category buttons in MIDI Controller mode, the button fires off the three MIDI messages required to select sounds in an external MIDI sound module youre controlling from the JUNO-Gi. Though were talking about using the JUNO-Gi with a DAW, these messages are still important, and are sent between MIDI devices in this order:
Each of the buttons, knobs, and faders shown in blue above can transmit a MIDI Control Change value to your DAW. To program any of them, touch or move it, and its currently assigned MIDI message is displayed at the bottom of the screen. Highlight the controls current setting, and select the MIDI message you want it to transmit.
