"About: Last year I really discovered that the Roland JV-1080/2080 XV XP synthesizers are inspiring sound design instruments. The JV/XP's are fun and cheap and really the proof that you don't need to buy expensive pro synthesizer equipment. The highly popular 90's module was widely used in many pop music records but it's actually quite useful for esoteric techno and electro. Many contemporary VST plug-ins are based on a similar approach of the classic romplers like the JV's. In this video I give you tips and tricks and insights in how you can re-vitalise your beloved preset player into a synth that you can actually program! I also share my honest thoughts about the synthesizer compared to the Roland Cloud VST. A great thing is that you can now use them combined in a really cool way... Check the video to find this out!

Programming the Roland JV-1080 is a lot of fun, when using both the interface and an editor you can really get inspiring results quickly. The JV's might look like bread and butter synths, in a way they are.. Unless you go beyond pizzicato, whacky piano waveforms. The JV's hold some cool waveforms for modern electronic music and you can also get some expansion cards for them (be aware they can be really crappy), only a few like the Vintage Expansion are worth the money.. Leave a comment if you like this video! Much appreciated"
