New Old Stock - in original box - Classic 90s Keyboard Sounds

This is the first in the long line of expansion boards that Roland produced in the course of several years.  The SR-JV80- Pop expansion board came out at about the same time as Roland's JV-80 synthesizer and JV-880 module, and was designed to enhance those devices, thanks to new waveforms that were missing in their internal ROM.

The JV-80 and JV-880 only had room for one expansion board, but since the cards were successful, Roland started adding room for more than just only one - case in point, when they produced the incredibly successful module JV-1080 (that was considered and still is, an "industry standard for ROMplers"), they offered room for four expansion boards.  Just a few years later, Roland offered eight slots in their JV-2080, the successor to the1080.

The Pop board is often underestimated because, being the first offered, contains waveforms that were added in the standard ROM of the instruments that followed, and people who own later models such as JV-1080, XP-80 and JV-2080 don't think they need "more of the same" bread and butter sounds: but even if that's the case, this board contains certain waves and patches that are not available anywhere else.

"Pop" is the name of this wave expansion board, and certainly it does a good job of providing all the staple instruments used in pop, such as pianos, bass, organs, saxophones, choirs and strings.  It's also noteworthy the addition of a few waveforms in D-50 style, brief attack of very characteristic sounds, such as breathy flutes, pads, even PWM waveforms - from which to start molding your sounds.

Even though this board doesn't receive the acclaim of other more famous boards in this series - i.e., the Session, Orchestral, Vintage or '60s & '70s, it still is a valid tool for any musician who owns one of the JV/XP series of instruments

These items were acquired from a music store that was an authorized Roland dealer; they were new stock on the sales floor when we bought their stock out. These are being sold in New Old Stock condition. We do not have the synthesizer to test them with, so if you purchase one and it doesn't work, pay return shipping and we will refund you. We're very certain these should all still work flawlessly as they are still new in box. 

No reasonable offer will be refused
