SR-JV80-03 Piano
Expansion board

Image by Roland

  The SR-JV80-03 "Piano" expansion board was the third in the Roland SR-JV80-series of expansion boards for the XP/JV synthesizers.

The Piano board features 111 patches of well-recorded exemplars of grand, upright, electric pianos, and a collection of other keyboards.

Great importance is given to the programming of each patch, to make the sounds very playable and expressive.

Patches range from the very-classical to the very-pop, and many of them benefit from generous doses of reverb and other effects - courtesy of the XP/JV series sound engine that typically sports the high-quality Roland FX processor.

This board is perfect if you write pop, ballads, new age, jazz, and classical - and any other genre that requires realistic piano and keyboard sounds.
