Damn! The best choir/synthpad -stuff for the price. Unbelievable. The best TR-808 set I have heard. I haven't used brass/bass -sounds atall but they r ok. There is some LFO and sweep stuff too and they are just great.

I picked up this box little over a year ago for $250, and it has more than paid for itself. If you want to create your own analogue patches, stay away, but otherwise, this box kicks. The display is piss poor, but I have little charts all over my set up to compensate. I can find a use for just about every sound here. I admit that it could have better lead sounds, but for the price I paid, it's a gem. ROLAND discontinued this unit (all the boxed versions of the JV sound cards were cut), so if you can find one, I recommend it. With the poor polyphony of "classic" analogue synths, use this box for layering and save the Juno for leads.

ok, so i dont have the actual stand alone unit, i DO have the Vintage Card for the JV/Xp Synths...I cannot do anything but praise it. like a card full of Analogue goodies..i like how a good portion of it is pads and strings, something my Techno card lacks...the MiniMoog and other basses Rumble, jus as i like em!! Probably the most popular card there is for the JV/Xp series...no wonder why..

Still getting to know this puppy. I've not tried the virtual knob editor for windows which is available yet (I'll wait til I've got headphones so that I don't have to move the amp AND the rack into the computer room), so I've just been playing with presets thusfar. One thing that I've found works nice is to layer organ patches offset by an octave or two, e.g., dirty B plus the VK1 up an octave gives a quite glorious hammond sound (good enough that i may postpone getting a VK7 or XK2 for a while). Similarly layering with organ sounds from other modules also works nicely. It took a while to figure out how to handle some of the control issues from the A33 but now that I have that under control, it's been a lot of fun getting to know this unit (they're going used for $200-250 these days which is a great price for what you get).

I cant believe the praise i'm seeing for this box, i bought mine for 250.00 and i cant believe anyone would pay more,i've had it for about a year now and i'll have to say i am done trying to make use of this thing...,no editability (unless you wanna use the sysex editor which is just as boring) ,but dont get me wrong it does have it's uses if you have a sampler,

if you are into completely original sounds stay away form this thing but if your one of the people that are happy with presets go get it
