One of the most widely used pieces of studio equipment from the '90s, updated for today's DAW.

Note: This is a download copy of Roland's JV-1080, not a physical copy.

Released in 1994, and packed with iconic strings, evocative ethnic instruments, retro stabs, and many more sounds, the JV-1080 is both a '90s icon and a powerful contemporary synthesizer.

The New Digital
By the early ‘90s, digital synthesizers had completely taken over the market, and rack units had become popular in studios and on stages alike. Thanks to advancements in digital technology, Roland began to pack a seemingly impossible amount of sounds into a single unit. And by utilizing optional PCM sound cards, users could expand their units with specialized sound sets.

The Sound of the ‘90s
Throughout the ‘90s, the JV-1080 helped fuel the sounds of R&B, pop, hip hop and rock, and was regularly heard in film and TV scores. Originally designed to mimic acoustic instruments, many of these sounds became so widespread they’re now part of our collective musical vocabulary. Some say it’s the most recorded sound module in history, and modern artists are still using these sounds in new and creative ways.
