Roland recently revived the name “Juno” for a new line of more affordable keyboards based on the Fantom sound engine. They include the Juno-D, Juno-G and now the Juno-Stage. At first sight, this looks like a 76-note version of the Juno-G but, although the same paint job has been employed, there are many differences between the two, and the Juno Stage is not a six-octave Juno-G. The Roland JUNO-STAGE is packed with great features for live performance, with gig-ready sounds (including the Fantom-X’s grand piano), easy-to-grab controllers, and vocal input. One of the Juno-Stage’s live performance offerings is the Song Player, which lets you stream MIDI and audio backing tracks from a USB flash drive. You also get a built-in Rhythm Pattern machine, a special Piano mode, a microphone input for adding vocals, stage-friendly patch navigation and more — all in a lightweight, affordable instrument designed for the gigging musician.
According to several user reviews, they have praised a Roland Juno Stage for the Most main features are easily accessible, though editing can be deep; Very portable, sturdy build and decent feeling keyboard; High-quality, musical and wide ranging sound set is suitable for many styles. Also, some users have complained it for no weighted keyboard version; No aftertouch.
