About the JV-1080:
The Roland JV-1080 synthesizer is one of the most influential MIDI sound modules of all time. This synth has been used on many of the definitive R&B and West Coast Hip Hop records of the mid 90s through the early 2000s.
The sonic range of the JV-1080 is vast and versatile. You can hear many of it’s lead synths and pads used on records by artists ranging from Usher to the Eastsidaz. Today you can hear artists such as Bruno Mars incorporating the sonic influence of the JV-1080 on commercial recordings.
