SR-JV80-17 Country Collection
Expansion board

Image by Roland

  The SR-JV80-17 "Country Collection" is entirely dedicated to the famous American music genre.  This was produced jointly with Sampleheads (probably from their sample CD "Whole Lotta Country"), and is a tremendous addiction to your sample library, especially if you play country, bluegrass, western and other Americana genres.

There are many, many well-sampled waveforms of all the instruments you'll ever need to compose and record for this genre:  sparkly, expressive acoustic guitars, metallic dobros, realistic banjos, earthy mandolins, raspy fiddles, and plenty of electric guitars:  Stratocasters, lap-steel guitars, 335s, 6-string basses, and the star of this genre: the mighty Telecaster.

With some effort in programming in a sequencer, it's possible to achieve extreme realism utilizing this expansion board.

Now strap on your cowboy boots and check out the audio demos below to see what this expansion board can do.
