I already knew about the limitations of this unit,but now how about some solutions?!I need the WORLD expansion board SRJV80-05.I got my JV1010 with the hiphop card which is for urban US based music mostly.I love arabic/indian music and would like to trade with someone in north Florida who has a world card and doesn't mind getting rid of it.Please email me with low $ price or interest in trade for hiphop card.I need the WORLD!Next,does anyone know of an external keyboard controller that can edit this unit from its front panel(pg programmers for Jupiter8 and JX8p ring a bell?)I don't own a PC anymore and my MAC is a 25mhz LC575 with 8mb ram and macOS7.5,a single speed cdrom drive and 270mb hard drive.The JV1010 sounds like a JV880 or XP30(the only recent keyboard version with better UI.).It does not come as close to JV2080 due to developement time and budget.The unit is meant as an expansion unit but if you have other more unusual needs like(designing your own computer based digital piano'ala BALDWIN $10,000 win95 pianos),then this is the best smallest unit with more bang for the buck to get you started.

Just bought one this weekend new for $399 and had a ball going thru all the presets. For the money this is definitely a great box. I think the electric pianos, organs, pads and basses sound great, especially for "R&B type" music. There is a nice range of monophonic "analog" type bass sounds. I can't wait to start using the software editor. If you're looking to ad a wide range of sounds to a midi studio setup, I highly recommend.

it's just plain awesome. I bought this unit for $350US second hand and oh my gosh it's terrific. I've only used presets so far, using it with cakewalk, but I love the piano and string sounds. The synth sounds are not that good, but that's where Propellerheads Reason comes in. :)

well we all know the bad points of the jv1010. But it has all the sounds of jv1080 and jv2080. Pitty it just has 1 EFX unit and 16 ad/da convertors. But hey .. nothing else comes close in this price range.

There may be better synth modules (albeit expensive ones!), but there is absolutely nothing that even comes close to this wonderful synth in this price range. Once you figure out how to get around the 1010 just add the Orchestral card and your there! Thanks Roland for thinking of us budget constrained musicians. Job well done!

I bought this module to add additional sounds to my AKAI Electronic Wind Controller. What can I say this thing ROCKS!. Yes the OS isn't very good but if you are using a PC or a MAC who cares! Roland has never had a good UI, remember the JV880. For the money the street price for the JV1010 is the same as the Korg Micro Piano, a used KORG X5DR or and the Yamaha MU50. Trust me when I say that I have returned more pro audio merchandise then I can count and the JV1010 will not be on that list. Great job Roland
