JUNO-G Version 2.0


Q.I'd like to record a new sample into the JUNO-G's song recorder. Can I simply create a new song and start recording?

A.Yes, you can.

When you record a song (MIDI tracks, audio tracks), the performance data is recorded in the temporary area. If you want to record a new song, you must first use the Song Clear operation to clear all of the performance data previously recorded in the temporary area. (If the temporary area contains a song that you want to keep, first save it to user memory or a memory card before performing the Song Clear operation.)

Use the following procedure to perform the Song Clear operation:

  1. Press EDIT [SONG] to access the MIDI TRACK screen.
  2. Hold down [SHIFT] and press [F6 (UTILITY)]. The Song Utility Menu will appear.
    * You can also access the Song Utility Menu by pressing [MENU] from the MIDI TRACK screen.
  3. Press [F2 (SONG CLEAR)]. A message will ask you for confirmation.
  4. Press [F6 (EXEC)] to execute.
    * If you decide to cancel, press [F5 (CANCEL)].
    When the song data has been cleared, "Song Clear Completed!" is briefly displayed.
  • On the JUNO-G, the term "song" refers to the performance data that consists of MIDI tracks (MIDI channels 1-16), audio tracks (1-4), a tempo track, and a beat track. This means that audio tracks don't exist independently-they're always part of a song.
  • Audio that you record using the song recorder is captured by the JUNO-G as a sample, and a corresponding sample event is assigned to one of the audio tracks (1-4) in that song. This means that the actual sample that is triggered from the audio track is managed separately from the song.
