The Juno 61 has the same killer engine as the DS 88 in a smaller more lightweight package. The key are not weighted but have fantastic response. It's packed with tons of amazing samples including analog synth sounds and acoustic samples; you have a four channel mixer for adjusting levels on rhythm patterns, two voices (if you're splitting the keyboard), and the microphone input. This is the keyboard I would choose for live performance to integrate with my current analog mono synth rig!! This is a Sam Ash review.
