Hi. i recently bought a Juno Stage to use in a band, Guitar, bass and drums. we play mainly pubs so we are not too loud.
Yer right, pub band that doesn't play loud. That would be a first.
i took the Stage to practise and i found there is hardly any volume. i am using a 300watt Trace Elliot bass set up at the moment and even with the amp turned to Max its not cutting through at all.
Sounds like a lead issue possibly.
What was the input gain like on the amp?
I assume the volume control was set fairly high on the Juno..
The band I work with has 2 beat-up Korg M1's, I tried to introduce a Korg X3, this is noticeably quieter than the M1's, not so much that you need it turned to max on the amp.
is this the normal factory setting or am i missing something. my mate had a Korg i3 in the band before me and that was blasting.
I was unable to find an actual manual for the i3, it's not listed on the Korg web site, and when I tried to download I got a service manual (so I know how to take one apart - but not necessary how to put together again).
Was trying to find if it had a hotter signal level out than the norm.
The Stage is advertised as a live performance keyboard but i cant use it as it is, really disappointed.
I think I need a little more info, can I assume you used a standard jack to jack cable (screened I hope) coming out of the mono/L jack socket of the Juno.
Have you tried headphones on the Juno, is it still quiet?
At a push, perhaps you could use the headphone out, you would need a stereo jack to mono jack conversion lead, and you might get some phasing effects. However the signal level will be much 'hotter'. The thing is you should need such drastic remedies, it should be fine on the main jack outs. As you said, it's called 'live' for a reason.
