Roland JD-990 Super JDPublished on 10/31/08 at 16:00
Based on todays standard it's a little low on the avalible patches and voices. I love the ability to edit a digital bassed synth from the front screen. Only now are they getting screens that show this much detail on a synth to edit it from. I think there are 6 outs, standard midi I,O,T, Strange ass Plug for power. 2 slots in the front for Memory card and Rom's, and a internal JV card (most people use the Vintage card)

Price paid

$1200

UTILIZATION

Other than it's a Roland and it is at the start of rolands use of rolands combo buttons it's one of my favorate rackmounts. Editing is as close to a pc as I have seen on a synth without knobs and sliders.

Built like a Tank. I would replace...…

Built like a Tank. I would replace it again....and again..... and Again.... Verry happy with the build of this unit other than the odd power cord.

SOUNDS

One of the best products from roland in the early 90's. It set the scope for the JV-1080,JV-2080 and XV line. One of the Big thing's they was exploiting in the XV line was the fact that it had the JD waves. It has crisp basses,lush strings,excelent pads. You can press down or up to darken or weeken the sound. I have the Vintage card installed in mine so I can pull up any of the patches from that as well as the ones made specialy for the JD-990. I use a card so I have a extra 64 presets or I place on the 3 sets of rom/card in for added pleasure

OVERALL OPINION

This thing gets used. All the stuff in the studio is a workhorse and has it's purpose. This thing has been around for along time and I have never thought about droping it back in the market. I use it alone, as a layering device.

an essential Roland!

Technical data sheet. Possibility of expansion cards.

UTILIZATION

The sound editing is straightforward but in internal sounds on the maps are not readily available. It takes time to be remembered in the road. But that is the case!

SOUNDS

Sounds basic but sound good with vintage c is just huge map. We leave very voluptuous layers present, the bass sounds suffer from a lack of velocity but there are sounds mc 202 and other mythical Roland synths.

OVERALL OPINION

For six months, I was taken aback at first, but in use, this rack offers huge opportunities. I advise a lot but you have to find at an affordable price ... …

UTILIZATION

excellent manual also franais but trs large
Using relatively easy with a large screen logic
and use of lists by pressing the scroll button main
Edition easy, dtails per module, or with a view of four layers complte
4 layers architecture.
The difficulty is a little utility menu that has a few main functions and the introduction particulirement sounds of the SR-JV cards must be appealed only by the menu, then copy it to a menu Temporary finally be transmitted to the card or internal, as the presets can be chang.
Systm amlior on the JV-1080 and 2080, but not forcment sounds.

SOUNDS

Excellent and easy to search for new sounds, not so raliste,
not really for brass or sax
guitars that there are dpend fusion INTERESTED.
PCM is the basic line of the D-50 amlior.
We make some great vintage sounds of Fast Fashion, leads, FX or pads that have a fantastic grain particulirement warm and Russian, with lots of CONTRL can even pressure on the keyboard. Excellent expression of all types and settings.
A lot of programmed sounds by Eric Persing (Spectrasonics) while Roland, super sounds and music, I feel like we lost Roland excellent programmer, nothing new today.

OVERALL OPINION

The JD 990, I use it for 15 years, I love it and I keep it, he has a personality and a single grain that Roland would not try. not a JV, it has a more powerful sound is a synthesis of the family JD.
Excellent choice I do it again.
The module is quite heavy, 2 Rack Unit I suggest you leave it in your studio. (Heavier that the Roland modules plupars Next)
I used full of synth Roland Jupiter and Juno are the best in analog, and also the D 50 I think it replaces and is much more.
If you find one, buy it, despite the ergonomics is a bit rough on some points.
