structure STRUCTURE the tones can be combined in 10 structures (signpaths) inspired from classic synthesizer Roland D-50. These are pre-fixed audio patch that connects the 2 pair of tones into variable setups mixed with audio elements such as amplifier / filter and 2 digital processes:
- Booster amplifies the signal causing a distortion with new harmonics 18 levels of effectiveness
- Ring modulator.

multitimbral PERFORMANCE the JV engine manages up 16 parts each with assignable:
- Midi channel
- zone assign
- panning
- volume
- effect amount
- pitch tuning
A special GM (General MIDI) bank reads SMF Midi for a total compatibility.

filter FILTER it is the TVF - Time-Variant Filter - offers 4 modes:
- lowpass
- bandpass
- highpass
- peaking (the "PKG" emphasizes frequencies around the cutoff value)
In addtion a filter keytrack function with +/- 200% harmonic content cutoff over octaves.

Eg LFO there are 2 syncable delayed modulators with fade-in/out time option; they do provide 7 shapes with adjustable symmetries:
- triangle
- sinewave
- sawtooth
- trapezoidal
- random
- sample & hold
- chaos random.

Eg ENVELOPE each TONE features 3 EGs:
- EG1 amplitude: 4 segments + 3 times, 8 velocity curves + key follows option
- EG2 filter : 4 segments + 4 times.
- EG3 pitch 4 segments + 4 times, keyfollow + random pitch

REVIEW "A classic still after decades, Roland uses quite the same JV sound architecture. 1080 is now obsolete but cheap, still a valid source for any kind of sounds, especially pads and strings textures from the nineties."
