Roland JV80 Custom 80's Sounds

Published on Oct 21, 2018 synthartist69

"In this video I am playing the Roland JV80. I actually bought this synthesizer brand new in 1992 when it first came out. Amazingly, after playing probably at least 500 gigs or more, it still looks brand new. What sold me on it was the acoustic guitar patches and it had a very good piano for that time period. It was my go to synth then and still is today during live shows. I had to learn to program it because I played a lot of 80's music back then and this was basically all I had. It was tough to create 80's patches with this keyboard. The factory synthbrass sounds were awful!! But somehow, I managed to create a really good Van Halen synth patch and used it for a ton of songs we did back then. I also have the big brother.. Roland JV1000... two synths that I will likely never part with."
