Description
The Roland XP-50 Workstation is a 61 key keyboard synthesizer based on the JV-1080 sound module. In addition to its large sound library and expansion capabilities the instrument also features a 16 track sequencer and disk drive for storage of sounds,songs, and, settings.

A new marker for the times the XP-50 uses Roland's 32-bit RISC chip (Reduced Instruction Set Chip). This in itself sped up the process of playing, composing, and editing large amounts of data much faster than previously done on other keyboards.

The sequencer is largely built upon Roland's MRC hardware sequencer of the era. The XP-50's manages up to 16 tracks at 96 clocks resolution per quarter note. Standard functions such as Overdub, Punch In-Out , Loop Parts, Quantizes and Copy Paste are available. An internal tool load function imports old format from MRC sequencers such as MC-500/ 300/ 50/ 50mkII and Midi files in format SMF 0 or 1.
