About This Listing

This JV-30 uses sounds derived from the XP and JV series synths and is in excellent working order although there are some marks to the case as shown in the photographs.

The JV-30 is a 16 part multi timbral synthesizer released by Roland in 1992. The JV-30 is also compatible with the Tone-mapping standard that Roland developed, called the GS format. It is capable of delivering a variety of preset tones and percussion sounds and features four different key modes. These are Dual, Split, Fat and Octave and they can be accessed from the dedicated front-panel buttons of the synth. In addition, the JV-30 has three sliders that function as MIDI controllers to apply real-time expression to your song data.

The JV-30 is a keyboard format synthesizer and provides players with a 61-note keyboard that has velocity as well as aftertouch. The keys feel fairly substantial, which makes it comfortable to play. On the rear of the JV-30 you'll find the standard range of sockets, such as the MIDI In/Out/Thru, L(Mono) and R audio outputs as well as the stereo headphones output and sustain pedal socket. Also on the back is the power input socket and on/off switch.

Since the JV-30 is not a very complicated synthesizer, it is easy to use right off the bat. This is thanks to the clear and accessible way in which the front panel is set up. However, the simplicity of the JV-30 can be frustrating for users who want more depth and flexibility from their synthesizer. As with many Roland synths of its era, the effects processing on the JV-30 are limited to only chorus and reverb, although you do get eight different types of each to choose from. On the front panel you will also find a 16 x 2 lines LCD screen, the volume slider, parameter buttons, effect buttons, key mode buttons, edit palette buttons, value buttons/slider and transpose as well as solo button.
