Roland JV-1080Roland JV-1080 Back

The Roland Super JV JV-1080 is part of the JV/XP/XV family, and is a more expandable upgrade from the JV-880 and a step down from the JV-2080.

The JV-1080 is expandable via four SR-JV80 Expansion Slots It also has two card slots, one for waveform cards from the SO-PCM1 series, and the other for storing patches on a data card, either the Roland M-512 (128 patches, 32 performances, 2 rhythm sets) or the M-256 (64 patches, 16 performances, 1 rhythm set).

It is powered by a 32-bit RISC processor running at 66MHz, which was pretty fast for a synthesizer of its time. It uses a standard CR2032 3v lithium battery for its memory backup.

See also the other Roland JV-series synthesizers: JV-30, JV-35, JV-50, JV-80, JV-90, JV-880, JV-1000, JV-1010, and JV-2080.
