Roland JUNO-DS88 Digital Synthesizer Workstation
It may seem unusual to some to describe an 88-key keyboard as portable, but the Roland Juno-DS88 is exactly that.
It is a reasonably portable keyboard that can run on batteries, while having a wide keybed with 88 velocity sensitive and hammer action keys.
Like its smaller 61-key sibling, this synth relies on digital processing, which allows for a wide variety of sound options and extensive control over them.
In addition to sound synthesis, it can play samples via its 88 keys, or through its 8 pads. It also lets you plug-in a mic and apply vocoder, reverb and auto pitch effects.
To it wrap all up, Roland equipped this synth with an 8-track pattern sequencer and built-in recording functionality.
