FP User's review

Roland XV-3080
I am satisfied with the features. I wouldnt mind having more MIDI ports though (only 16)

Price paid

$999

UTILIZATION

Well the screen is small and I find the menus confusing. The manual is very well made so it helps though.

SOUNDS

Excellent for bread and butter sounds (pianos, basses, leads, pads..) The drums are good too. I am a fan of orchestral sounds and I think I'll have to spend some more $ to get extensions for those. The basic ones are good but not outstanding. Excellent module though, dont get me wrong!

OVERALL OPINION

Seems good. Never had a problem.

I almost love it

Roland XV-3080
Could have used an arpeggio, and 4 SRX boards and 2 JV boards instead of 4 JV's and 2 SRX's.

$1000 NEW

UTILIZATION

Dead easy to use.

Never gigged with it, never had any problems.

SOUNDS

Amazing. If you're into Pop/R&B, Roland is your manufacturer. You'll know 200 of the 1000+ patches easily. The new reverb unit is tops, makes the pianos and strings that much more usable. One thing Roland always did the best was make soudns that just sit in a mix perfect w/o tweaking.

OVERALL OPINION

If I lost it, I'd buy a 5080 probably, only because the 3080 is out of production. this is my primary sound module for all my hiphop/r&b/poppy tracks. If you add in all 6 boards, + all soundbanks on the memory card, you can probably have 4000+ sounds on this badboy at your beckoned call. Can't beat that :-D

WAPDEBURDI's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very happy"

Roland XV-3080
I was looking for a Roland expander can replace my D-110 a bit outdated. The integra seems very tempting but unfortunately a bit expensive for my current budget. So I cracked on a XV-3080 occasion.

UTILIZATION

To select the first sound that is consistent with the use of Roland but I'm in the learning phase of the expander and I have yet to test the change patches.

SOUNDS

OUi, certain sounds are well known, others are sometimes better but on the other hand my current set is exactly what I wanted. A summary of the best Roland sounds in all styles and much better than the D110 and even the juno-g keyboard as I use to do all the streets. I also have a D-50 and Korg Wavestation not come duplicates the XV-3080. I also think the sound is more punchy in my configuration with ample sound and a very nice stereo.

OVERALL OPINION

Brand new (one day). I think all the right sounds Roland I was looking in an expander with the possibility to extend further by SRX and SR-JV cards.

mhs's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Series XV Sound Editor"

Roland XV-3080
I just wanted to add from what has been written about this unit that there was a sound editor software for devices Roland XV series with XV-3080.
This is the XV-Edit PRO for XV-3080 on the site SoundTower.

Given the number of sounds in memory is not a luxury.
So you can make backups of patches and performance on the PC hard drive, which is more in case of problems with the expander.

UTILIZATION

The use of the XV-3080 takes some time to begin to control it. Besides, how do we know that in making the most?

SOUNDS

The sounds are very good. But it is a matter of taste. Have in its list of machines with a Roland, Korg and Yamaha one can scan a range of unique sounds.

Let's say for the Roland XV-3080 is a seriously compromised due to expansion cards that can give him. I found the best sounds in these cards, not in sound factory.

OVERALL OPINION

Excellent value for money.
Do not hesitate, if you are looking for an expander opportunities for a good start in the world of home studio, you have found.

Good discovery.
