Legowelt explains why he loves his Roland JV2080

The JV-2080, released in 1997, uses a sample + synthesis synth architecture.

The JV-2080 is everything you could expect from a modern sound module, but more! A massive 64 voice multitimbral performance module that strives to offer the best all-around features for creating new and vintage sounds for any musical style. Excellent acoustic sounds of all instruments both common and ethnic. A massive amount of techno sounds complete with pulses, blips, sweeps, and the ever popular LFO, VCF and VCA type controls for patch editing and real-time editing. The 2080 is extremely expandable with room for 8 sound cartridges from the JV-80 series, as well as a data card slot. The 2080 has 5 excellent effects processors too, including the new EFX processors. Verb, delay, panning effects, chorus, flange, etc

Key Features:

  • Accommodates up to 8 user-installable sound expansion boards, allowing access to approximately 2,900 patches when fully expanded
  • 768 internal patches; 16MB of wave data expandable to 144MB (16-bit linear format)
  • 320 x 80 dot graphic backlit LCD
  • Patch Finder function groups similar patches from internal banks, expansion boards and memory data cards together
  • Phrase Preview function allows users to hear patches within the context of a musical phrase by pressing volume knob; no keyboard needed
