High quality module from roland: top of XV/JV series, compendium of the gold digital Era. Also considered even better then successive phantom series

- VDE power connetor
- Mid interface (with 2x IN)
- 25 db SCSI connector with ID selector
- 2 stereo main out + 6 aux
- R-BUS connect RMBD2 (8-out 24 bit digital audio connector. Use this for connecting to the device such as Roland VM-3100Pro and DIF-AT.)
- WORD CLOCK IN Connector (44.1/48 kHz)
- SPDIF out (both optical and coaxial)


OSCILLATORS  the XV-5080 is a 32-part multitimbral sound generator (compatible to GM GS Midi protocol, GM Level 2 system Compatibl) that produces up to 128 simultaneous polyphonic voices. It provides sample polyphony, even with Patches containing multiple Tones. With Patches containing four stereo Tones, as well as four-Tone instruments in Rhythm Sets—you can use up to a total of eight wave types. The internal 64 mb rom contains 1083 waveforms at 44.1kHz , including famous JD-990 PCM.

IMPORT SAMPLE By expanding with SIMM (72-pin, 64/32/16 MB) memory modules, you can add the sample playback function to the module. With a CD-ROM drive connected to the SCSI connector, you can then load Roland’s S-770 Series and Akai S1000 CD-ROM libraries. You of course can perform using existing sampled tones just as they are, but you can also synthesize internal Patches into a single Wave. Additionally, since you can also save the wave data of loaded samples to SmartMedia cards, you can easily take pre-existing samples for use in your live performances, even with no CD-ROM drives or hard disks connected.

EXPANSION XV-5080 PCM and patchmemory can be also expanded using internal slots (just unscrew top cover)
- up to four Wave Expansion Boards (SRX Series)
- up to four Wave Expansion Boards (SR-JV Series)

Effect and memory

EFFECTS The reverb, the XV-5080’s most central effect, incorporates the classic SRV-3030 DSP.  Up to 3 multi-effects processors with 90 types of effect plus 4 types of reverb and 2 types of chorus, 2-band EQ + RSS and 3D Delay, Slicer, and Formant Filter
