It’s a Fact…
Selecting Patches
The JV-1080 Super JV Synthesizer module is a
powerful instrument based on a 32-bit RISC
processor. It is 64-note polyphonic, and offers 16-part
multitimbral capability. In addition to its 8 MBytes of
onboard ROM waveforms, the user can install up to
four 8 MByte Expansion Boards (from the SR-JV80
Series) for a total of 40 MBytes of accessible
waveforms. There are 512 preset patches and 128
user patches. The effects include reverb and chorus,
plus 40 insert effects, such as rotary speaker,
distortion, flanging, phasing, and multi-tap delays.
There are 512 preset patches in the JV-1080 as well
as 128 user patches. Any installed expansion boards
also have patches that can be accessed directly from
the JV-1080’s front panel.
