Korg M50 vs Roland Juno Stage

Post by Ernosco » Sun Oct 28, 2012 12:48 pm

These synths are built for different purposes, but they do not differ a lot.
Korg M50 has sequencer, an extra arpeggiator and is more editable.
Juno Stage has 76 keys, vocoder and can play smf, mp3, wav, aiff via usb.
What do you think? Which sounds better? Which has more capabilities?

Having looked at both (but got an M3 instead) I think you'd find the touch screen on the M50 goes a long way towards helping you program it... if you don't mind using a stylus ( i use a Nintendo DS-XL stylus on mine).

The Juno's wav/aiff playback is limited to, essentially, backing tracks. You're not going to be playing samples off of it, its not intended for that. The M50 can play midi files as well by just importing them into the sequencer from an SD card.

Don't overlook the RPPR features of the M50 either.
