    Transpose setting on Juno DS

    Many thanks for that info. There are a couple of of numbers in our set list that are sung by a our lead vocalist that are easier to transpose than try contortions in unusual keys ! I wonder why Roland haven't standardised such settings on their models. On my V Combo I can use the transpose...

    Transpose setting on Juno DS

    Can anyone tell me if I can save transpose settings in performance or user the Roland DS. I can do it on my VR-09 but can't seem to suss it on the Juno. I'm led to believe that this can only be done as a Global setting. Any knowledgable takers would be appreciated.

    Roland Juno DS 76

    Just a quick question Gary, Do you know if my Yamaha FC7 pedal is compatable with the DS or is it reverse polarity. If so I have a converter.

    Cheers Gary, I have got used to the VR-09 keybed but it leaves a little to be desired. Hopefully the 76 won't be any worse.

    Roland Juno DS 76

    Ok Gary thanks for that info. I don't intend to do anything too technical with the 76, it's purely for band work, so as long as I can save some order of sounds in conjunction with my set lists it'll be fine. I believe it's not dissimilar to the VR-09 on that score, in fact more of the same with...

    Roland Juno DS 76

    Hi Gary, thanks for that I'll have a browse on axial. It was very disappointing for the VR-09 though as they don't seem to have bothered at all with any aftermarket support with that one. I know it's a lot better for the Juno so let's hope we'll have some enjoyment with that.

    Roland Juno DS 76

    Hi to one and all, I promised an update on my final decision on my next board purchase. As you can see by the title of this thread, I decided on the Roland DS 76. I have not yet heard a bad word for the new Juno, only good and just how versatile they are for band work. The other deciding factors...

    Yamaha MX88 or Roland DS 88

    Thanks for that info, I had read sometime ago in various reviews that some people were not happy with key action on the Artis 7. It's not a cheap board so having to do spring conversions is a strange situation. As I understand you were not the first to do this and probably won't be the last. I...

    Yamaha MX88 or Roland DS 88

    Ac Hamilton certainly do the best deal on the MX 88 at present. Yes you can get it elsewhere for £699 but if you add the cost of a gigbag £749 isn't over the top. Anyhow they must be doing well as they are out of stock at present although they can be ordered. Going to check out the Kurz SP6 if I...

    Yamaha MX88 or Roland DS 88

    Believe it or not I used to own a Hammond SK2 and got that and my Yamaha and amps and all the accessories In my 500. I can manage an extra 2 or three inches over my Yamaha for the DS88 so no worries there. The lads in the band call my skateboard "The Tardis" and quite rightly too. As for...

    Yamaha MX88 or Roland DS 88

    Yes, I have been closely watching prices. Some dealers want well over £1000 for the mx88 and it was originally out at about £899. AC Hamilton do the package deal for £749 when you consider adding the cost of a gigbag that's a good deal plus you get some extra premium sounds. They also do a...
