SR-JV80-06 Dance
Expansion board


Number six in the SR-JV80-series, this card was at the time taken off the market apparently due to legal, copyright reasons.  The card was co-produced by excellent British sound design company AMG, and the quality, variety, and programming is thoroughly very good.

The loops are very solid, and it sounds like some great outboard gear was used to record them, especially compressors, because the tone is really powerful and rounded.  Roland's on-board effects also help in creating a very professional sounding product.

As far as the sounds go, there's a bit of everything, from excellent dance lead synths, to breathy pads, powerful basses, and pumping drum sets.  And as the card says, these sounds are definitely usable for genres other than dance - hip-hop and ragga being two of them that this card would be good for.
