  • JV90 build and sound

    Roland JV-90Published on 04/23/15 at 09:02
    Build

    Keyboard has good feel and is quiet. The body is lightweight and slim. Knobs and switches are safely indented in the face. Screen is bright clear and simple.

    Sounds

    Piano The piano has always been robust and cutting.
    Organ I've never used for organ
    Strings Pads are lush
    Analog synth Does pads or solo with portamento and effects, and 4 parts per note.
    Brass Brass is superb and capable of analog sounds
    Drums Gives enough kit choices from natural to special effects

    Polyphony

    Polyphony is definitely the issue. Nothing new there. Layering with another keyboard is recommended.

    Editing

    Editing is super easy and able to leave menu parts you edit the most on screen

    Love it. Sounds can be put in my 2 JV880's giving me 84 notes of polyphony without the need for expansion boards. 76 keys and lightweight.

    For specifications, see above.
    Small drawback: polyphony and multitimbral limited. No GM bank.

    UTILIZATION

    Editing sounds: we have seen more simple (but this is mainly due to the small size of the screen).

    SOUNDS

    The best sounds are the pads. For acoustic sounds: piano bof, strings not bad, very well in the bass (cellos and double basses), acoustic guitar well, pretty wood, brass bof, percu well, organ hum, TB pads, I added a card extension where the sound quality is better (I needed harpsichord, accordion ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    Been used for 94 or 95.
    For the time, the sounds were very satisfactory, more pros than GM expander base (or SC55 roland yamaha MU50, eg).

    Been used for 94 or 95.
    For the time, the sounds were very satisfactory, more pros than GM expander base (or SC55 roland yamaha MU50, eg).
    The sounds have a very broad spectrum (beautiful pads, often heard at the time for that matter).
    No memory of the price at which I bought.
    He accompanied me for a while, without technical problems (except a few buttons and recalcitrant deviennet that need support as a brute to activate), and I even used as a master keyboard (less than 10 kg, is significant).

    Hi!
    I have a JV90 I will not present here was very well done in the data sheet.
    Basically it's a keyboard with some variety of sounds which has the advantage of having a 76-key keyboard which is INTERESTED in the scene.
    Polyphony 28 notes -> Important patches consist January to April tones that just reduce your polyphony 7 notes.
    The performances contain 8 patches (one for the battery) as well say that to a full arrangemet the JV is quite unrealistic.
    no sequencer edition possible thanks to WinJV PC -> it works super full of Hell

    UTILIZATION

    Philosophy Roland regulars will feel at home.
    Very easy to use even with the display 2x40 characters

    SOUNDS

    The pianos, brass, guitars and strings are rather nice, for cutter in terms of the organ is a little hard drive ...
    You'll have full editing functions with a bit of grip you can get to create your sound completely. We must recognize that aging is a machine, the synth sounds ideally suited to 90 years, for conntre for contemporary music is a little death.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 7 years it works very well but like all synths of that time, the comparison is difficult with what we do today.

    If you do not have too much budget, here seems a good choice for a keyboard to do everything.
    If you are really INTERESTED mine is for sale

    Features ok.

    UTILIZATION

    Easy enough.

    SOUNDS

    Okay. The sound is hollow. No potato. The pianos are not good, the
    EPs zero, BOFs strings, leads mush. If you want to sound pleasant,
    buy a 01W.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Its strength is its mechanical keyboard (very good) and weight. It makes it a great master keyboard.
