JV-2080 doesn’t rest on the laurels of JV-1080 going even a bit further – the unit offers that needed simplicity in exploitation, eight slots for expansion boards, and three independent EFX sets providing 40 effects each.

The module is filled with stunning acoustic tones, techno sounds, and any voice is a beneficial ground for creating elaborate patches. You’re free to choose between patch editing and real time editing. JV-2080 has 5 quality effects processors. Enjoy verb, delay, panning effects, chorus, flange and others.

The 64-voice module comprises 768 patches the number of which could be expanded up to 2900 owing to the possible installation of 8 sound expansion boards. The instrument features two useful functions Patch Finder which groups similar patches from internal banks, expansion boards and memory data cards together and Phrase Preview which allows for trying patches within a musical phrase.

The large 320 x 80 graphic backlit LCD adds to the simplicity of use. XV-5080 128-Voice Synthesizer/Sample Playback Module features similar specification of already discontinued JV-2080.

Richard Barbieri, Mike Oldfield, ATB and Hardfloor are among notable users.
