Expansion board

Image by Roland

  Red hot!  This is the SR-JV80-18 "World Collection Latin" expansion board - or for short, the Latin card - a comprehensive offering of many of the instruments used in Latin American musical genres, including salsa, mariachi, cumbia, merengue etc.

Since this is a dedicated board, the quality of the instruments is extremely good - the trumpet sounds in particular being very realistic.

The percussion sounds are full and punchy, and the numerous loops on board are authentic and well programmed.

Perfect to add that special spice to your projects.

Check out the audio demos below to see what you can do with this expansion board.
