okay, I like it enough that i'll keep it for a while but its a little weird to get around. Maybe its me but i can't seem to figure out yet how to set up performances in my sequencer. That's the only drawback i think. Oh and the Sound diver is a JV/XP only...sux to some degree. Its a good module if u want alot of B&B sounds. I like the pads strings and the leads. Can't say i use the real instruments much.

Its definitely good if u just want to expand your system a little but don't want to shell out for a huge ass 1080 or 2080. I recommend it. Just make sure u have a computer to edit with.

love the sounds on this thing, but i can use the f*cker at all. unless you use it in patch mode, all the midi channels stay on. now i need to buy a midi filter just to use it in my midi chain. by the time i'm done with that i ought to just have bought a k2k eh?

i thought i knew what i was getting into.. a budget sound module that'd give me the sum of your general midi fodder sounds lacking some of the finer front panel editing. but it's just such a royal pain in the ass to use at all that i feel castrated. not a good feeling! the 'manual' (cdrom, not printed) is basically a useless list of features. i'm presuming you can't store performances, despite there being 32 (??) locations. if anyone's figured this out, *please* drop me a line.

really, it sounds great, and 64/16 for $400?? wow!! as soon as i figure out how to use two patches at the same time in my midi chain i'll be pleased. a real, major headache. thanks roland. put a store function on your crap huh? turn midi channels off? too much to ask? i think not. die eternally in hell with ass burrowing rats aplenty, you f*ckers.

Sounds 4/5, Effects 3/5, Design/Interface 2/5, Manual 2/5, Features 3/5, Computer Software 3/5 A lot of bang for the buck, but after using the JV1010 one wishes there were a few corners Roland didn't cut. For example, I would have been able to do without the patch preview feature, and the patch groups for a display that showed the patch name/bank number. I do not even look at the display on the JV1010. The band for the buck factor is very high, yet I wonder of Roland will be coming out with a MKII, or JV2020 one of these days. If so, Roland, may I make a request that you include more than 1 expansion slot. I had a heck of a time choosing how to fill my one slot up.
