Hi there,

Here is a tip for JV90/JV1000 users who need a good piano sound (and more) and more polyphony (64 voices extra): Find yourself a VE-RD1 piano expansionboard! Yes, I know it wasn't build for the JV's but it does work, with only a few minor setbacks:

1-The VE-RD1 starts up with the chorus processor switched ON. Solution: Press "chorus" then push the slider up and down once (don't to it to fast) The effect will be switched OFF that way.

2-If you use the JV1000's onboard sequencer the VE-RD1's demo tune starts to play. Solution: Start recording from measure 2, then the demo song won't be triggered.

3-It seems like you can't select the different kinds of effects (chorus, reverb, eq)that are on the VE-RD1. I didn't find a solution for that.

What you do get is an amazing piano plus some other very good sounds inside your "old" JV90/JV1000. Plus all the polyphony you need (92 voices in total).

Have fun!

I've had my JV-1000 for almost 10 years now. I love it. I use it professionally for live, sequencer-based band gigs. It has served me well. I am currently experiencing problem with alpha dial, in that it is painfully slow to scroll through songs on disk. Has anyone else experienced this? If so, what was your solution? I did have a problem where the keyboard would reset itself during play. That turned out to be cracked solder joint in voltage regulator circuit. I fixed it myself. Its been perfect ever since. I'm currently looking for a 2nd (back-up) JV-1000 -- that's how much I like it. Because of its age, the polyphony and DD disks are limiting at times. Also the limitation of 40,000 events (internal RAM capacity) is a drag at times. Sometimes large, fully orchestrated sequences will not fit into internal RAM. None-the-less. It has served me well, and I continue to make it the center piece of our 4 piece band.

Hi, I have the same problem I found the glue that roland used to glue the weights on the keys started dissolving and running down the fingerboard. i had to take the fingerboard apart and remove the weights on the keys with hot water and a small screwdriver , soak them in a strong waterbased cleaner to dissolve the glue, this could tale a little scrubing with a toothbrush. also clean the weights and reglue the weights with a hot glue gun. the black keys can be a little stubborn just be patient! the cleaner i used was castrol super clean. try doing 1 to 2 octaves at a time to not get ahead of yourself this can be tedious work but it beats trying to find the parts to replace the keyboards fingerboard....hope this helps.. tg1thang@aol.com
