I am a Roland Fan,Ilove the piano sounds and the rhodes,and always had used Roland keyboards, but this sound module does not work properly with the USB cable. When you make your own sounds, you save them into your computer and later they are lost all bacause you comunicate the module with the same ole midi cables,sorry Roland.

Intro: Good dedicated synth.

Quality: Semi high end parts.

Sound: Good sounding samples tones. Well made patches. Good EFX. Good responsivness.

Features: Good features for a dedicated 1 unit synth.

Power: This is not a sampler or a VAST synth. Good set of parameters for a small sytnh under $1000.

Support: I am not sure if America has support. I have no idea. I just know that they never respond to email.

Expandability: Pretty good for a small synth without sample RAM.

Value: Excellent value !!! Good enough for most uses.

Bad things:

If only this thing had about 64 megs of sample RAM I would love it or the ability to accept a CF, smart media or SD card.

It would be nice if polyphony was 128. A Roland synth can easily eat up 64 voices. For the serious user having 2 or 3 synths is not a bad idea. it would cost about $2100.

The expansion modules are expensive ! About $300 for a module.

I dont recommend configuring the unit via without a software. The interface is small and the quality of the screen isnt great.

The sounds on the JV-5050 is a whopping 64 megs, but its spread out to many types of sounds, hence a good general sound library but not really great for any one group.

...those re-packaged cards worthwhile if u don't have any old jv-series synths and cards...the cards got all the olds (about 3 cards in 1) but just costs less than the sr-jv80-xxx or the srx-01~05...
