No expansion boards are included with this JV-2080 but I have a number for sale here on Reverb

The JV-2080 is the successor to the legendary JV-1080, the synth used on more recordings than any other. Vintage Synth Explorer:

“The JV-2080 is everything you could expect from a modern sound module, but more! A massive 64 voice multitimbral performance module that strives to offer the best all-around features for creating new and vintage sounds for any musical style. Excellent acoustic sounds of all instruments both common and ethnic. A massive amount of techno sounds complete with pulses, blips, sweeps, and the ever popular LFO, VCF and VCA type controls for patch editing and real-time editing“

The JV-2080 represents a significant upgrade from the JV-1080, with more patches, more outputs and more expansion slots (eight rather than four). It has a larger display and easier patch editing. Sonically, it’s virtually identical to the JV-1080, but it has additional effect options

The JV-2080 continues the typical Roland 2U rack style with a black, brushed aluminium front panel, large LCD display, headphone socket with volume control, data entry dial and a number of dedicated buttons. It has eight sockets for SR-JV80 expansion boards (JV-1080: four) plus a front panel card slot for a Data card. The Data card can be used for playback of sounds & samples or as a means of saving setups. Data dumps via Sysex are available too

The JV-2080 has three stereo outputs and upgraded onboard effects, EFX, Chorus & Reverb, each of which has a dedicated on/off button. The effects can be enabled on a per-voice basis and stored as part of a preset

If you use synth modules to play presets, a fully-expanded JV-2080 might give you every sound you ever need. The SR-JV80 expansion boards cover a very broad range of instruments, styles & genres and some, like Bass & Drums, Vintage Keys and the Vocal Collection, are awe-inspiring in the quality of the sounds & programming

If you like to edit sounds, tweak filters and create sounds to fit your mood, the JV-2080 offers easier editing than the JV-1080 thanks to a bigger display, dedicated function keys and a revised front-panel layout. Everything you know from the JV-1080 will transfer – the basics, the way expansion boards fit & operate and the tone / patch / performance structure remain as before

The JV-2080 is beautifully built and finished, the product of an era when keyboards were expensive and high quality was the norm

The JV-2080 is 16-part multitimbral, 64 voice polyphonic and has 640 built-in patches and 128 performances. It includes 8 Mb of sound samples as standard and can be expanded by adding up to eight SR-JV80 expansion boards, such as the Vintage Synth, Hip-Hop, 60s & 70s or Bass & Drums cards, plus a data card
Three stereo pairs of outputs are provided on jack sockets, and the front panel headphone socket has a volume control with the usual "push-to-preview" feature which plays the currently-selected sound when pressed
