UTILIZATION

I RPET roland but for users, no problem but for others, it will have to learn to be patient before fully master the machine (note well done)

SOUNDS

The XV-5080 trs many people, and JD Module Super JV forces, but this is not new!
when the patches they sound XV trs property but I have not seen a big diffrence with trs old
but there are also new converter technology and Difference (24 bit) which is also the patches JD and JV people much better than an XP-60 or JV-1080.
still all the Polyval SERIES JV XV XP on promne in all styles.
compatibilté with the old SR-JV cards is a great IDE and with the new SRX cards (like the last Fantom X6, 7 or 8) really give the machine a different dimension.
nothing but the possibility to read Cantillon in Stereo is terrible ... and the battery pack adchire attention ... ... ... such emotion may have a key, 4 waves or 4 dynamic diffrent for a snare drum for instance (by expressivit. against a Chow polyphony ...

OVERALL OPINION

Trs good machine for large programing ..!
people really good kit for batteries and patches also
remains even when a high-end machine, so beginners abstain unless the money is not a problem
