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 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.

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.
