  • This rack module has quite a bang in sound quality with an external sound editor

    Roland JV-880Published on 05/10/20 at 15:37
    The product is used for studio use. I have the studio setup for DAW and non DAW. I was impressed with several Youtube presentations of the JV-880 that I purchased 2 units. The JV-880 has: MIDI/in/out and thru. I've added some internal extension cards and retrofitted the screen with a newer technology screen which is white (letters) over blue - extremely easy to read in brightly lite or in low light environments. The screen worked out so well, I order and second one for the other unit.

    Background on the synths I desire: Roland JD-990, Access Virus (model C and the T-series), Blofeld and the Novation Peak. This will help to quality what my expectations are when acquiring a music......

    Background on the synths I desire: Roland JD-990, Access Virus (model C and the T-series), Blofeld and the Novation Peak. This will help to quality what my expectations are when acquiring a music instrument and while reviewing the Roland JV-880. Superb sound quality and a free editor (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPQ5tBsh1ZE). The creator, Leandro Cleto has done a superb job with many options to adjust. (download: https://ctrlr.org/jv-patched-roland-jv-880-patch-editor/)

    Having the Roland JD: 990, the Famtom X and the Korg M-3, I see the JV up with these other synths on sound quality.

    Pros: Many pros - especially when you think of when it was released.
    Cons: No cons, I am with gratitude for this module.

    28 votes, 8 multitimbral parts (including a battery mandatory and on channel 10, which is curious at Roland).

    UTILIZATION

    Very easy to use, the basic parameters are easy to access. However, an editor will be welcome in view of the small screen for editing sounds.

    SOUNDS

    Range of sounds covering a few styles. Little brother of JV1080 but nevertheless, some sounds and multi-samples that are good are not found in the big brother! Making it a rather unique expander.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Good quality / price ratio. Expander ideal complement to other machines or to get started with few resources. ...

    For CHARACTERISTICS see d_mp below.
    Looking for a cheap small expander to enrich my sounds composed of several "fairly typical" CHARACTERISTICS me his ideal, particulirement for large tablecloths.

    UTILIZATION

    The basics are quite simple and can get into the tampering without opening the manual and get first rsultats nice.

    on the other hand, ds edit sounds you want and get more sophisticated about the results, it is better to go through the editor in the pc and have read manuelm, RALIS well.

    SOUNDS

    It sounds roland, that's only I rcupr.
    For that I use, most of the water and synthetic percussive sounds beautiful little is nickel.

    For something else .... kits batteries......

    For that I use, most of the water and synthetic percussive sounds beautiful little is nickel.

    For something else .... kits batteries have aged poorly and TRS instruments "acoustic" range from frankly rotten (guitar piano brass) not too bad (a fretless bass pretty cute, woods almost crdibles).
    But hey, it's not to imitate real instruments I have bought.

    The reverb intgre poeut to help, but ... Better to do without.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Used for 8 months, he suits me perfectly in the use reserved for him.
    I would not recommend forcment box as its all done though.

    This is the rack version of the Roland JV-80. I just tested, listened to some sounds.

    UTILIZATION

    It looks simple to use, at first glance. Simpler than the Roland JV-1080, the model against which I traded in any case.

    SOUNDS

    The sounds are, for the bargain, more than cozy as the JV-1080 is net ^ ^

    OVERALL OPINION

    Well, I have not been able to study it thoroughly. Before I had to replace a Roland JV-1080, the 880 is, at least at first sight:

    <ul> Easier to use
    Best sound
    Only 1 U rack </ul>
    I do not regret my exchange. ...
