Roland JV-2080

   (0 reviews)

As successor to the JV-1080, this synthesizer sound module offers even greater performance and higher-quality sounds. Three different effects systems are provided: "Multi-effect (EFX)," which offers a total of 40 effect types (such as equalizer, rotary, and distortion); and "Reverb" and "Chorus." In a Performance (which allows up to 16 Parts to be used simultaneously), three different EFX plus chorus and reverb can be used simultaneously, for a total of 5 effect units, allowing highly-sophisticated musical expression.

The big screen can show a large amount of information at once, and can also display information graphically so that settings can be made visually. The [Fl]—[F6] buttons located below the screen change their function in accord with the current display page. This allows intuitive operation with a less-cluttered operating panel. A "Patch Search function" is provided to help you navigate through the vast number of Patches to find the desired one. A "Patch Preview function" lets you use a phrase to audition a Patch without requiring any other equipment. Up to eight wave expansion boards (SR-JV80 series: optionally available) can be installed to add a maximum of approximately 2,000 Patches. Patches are compatible not only with the JV-1080, but also with the XP-50/80. The JV-2080 can correctly play back musical data that was created using the JV-1080 or XP-50/80.
