NAMM: Roland MV-8000v2 Hits The Big Screen
Big screen action with V2

The MV-8000 sampling workstation, already proving popular amongst folks who enjoy using dedicated hardware for for their music production has taken another step forward to convicing those of us who don't, by the addition of the new MV8-VGA and version 2 software. The combination of the card and V2, lets you connect a standard VGA monitor to the MV-8000. Once installed, you can view and edit your MV-8000 track and sample data in style on the big screen, and use the included optical mouse to expedite operations. Even when you're using an external display and mouse to operate the MV-8000, you can still use the onboard physical controllers (velocity pads, numeric keys, etc.) and view information on the MV-8000's built-in LCD screen, just as before. You can use the physical controllers for VGA screen operation as well. In addition to monitor and mouse support, Version 2 expands the MV-8000�?�¢??s file-import compatibility to include Akai MPC2000/XL program files and Akai S1000/3000 program and sample files. In addition, Version 2 allows the MV-8000's velocity pads to double as Track Mute/Solo switches. The entire upgrade, software and hardware, is user-installable.
