I purchased my JV-1010 after listening to someone else who had one, and I was very impressed. I use it on stage as well as in the studio. I am impressed with the preset sounds, therefore I don't have to go in and try to tweak anything, although I can do that. I use my JV-1010 midied with my Casio WK-1300 along with my Yamaha S03, and that is all I need to get by for now...

Anybody! Help! There's a lot of praise for the Session board stereo piano sound, but it's terrible when played live - the velocity switch is all wrong. If you have any idea where I could get a tweaked Stereo Piano patch usable for live playing - e-mail me; will be eternaly grateful :)

Otherwise - this is a wonderful way to double the effects and polyphony of your JV/XP. Responds to SysEx edit commands coming out of my XP-80, lovely for filter tweaking. Stop bitching about the noise already ... if the music is good, people won't notice it.

The one who reviewed this synth on the first page, must have been smoking 3g grass !!!!

For me the Roland JV1010 is the best synth I've tryed (and owned)( have tryed a lot of comparative synths ) for under $ 1,000.

It is comparative to JV2080, it got all the original sounds of the module exccept the 2 extra FX-busses. The sound is exactly the same, but the noise level isn't as good as the JV2080 and it don't have seperat outlets for the mixer . It doesent have more than 1 expansion-board, but it is allready expaned with Session-board.

You simply get lot of sound for your money, when you buy this module ! The only thing I would like is SPDIF

I would recomend the new version XV2020, this module got the same sounds as XV3080.

I own several synth modules and I must say that if you're looking for a straightforward synth module that has tons of great sounds (with the added advantage of being tiny and easy to transport), I don't think that you can beat the Roland JV1010 for the money. I've compared it to a Roland JV 1080 and to my ear, there is no discernable difference in sound quality. So far I've only used it as a pre-set sound source; I haven't used it in multi-timbral applications and I haven't used the sound editor yet. Yes, a LCD display and a universal effects disable switch would have been nice but for the price how could anyone complain?! I think the "tweakheadz" website's review summed it up best when it said that if you can afford only one synth module or if you already have several synths but no current Roland gear - This is THE module to get. Rating 5 out of 5 for the extreme value this module delivers.

I was hoping for what the magazine reviews promised - JV2080 sounds in a box a quarter the size and half the price (s/h), but what a disappointment!! I guess you can't expect too much for the money, and the comparison with the JV2080 is unfair, but then why do they hype it the way they do??. Bottom line is - good range of sounds but they are all pretty lifeless and flat sounding especially when heard alongside a JV1080/JV2080. Seeing as you can get a s/h JV1080 for not much more, don't bother with this.
