XV-5050

64-Voice Synthesizer Module

Q.Does the XV series work as a GM2 sound module when receiving the "GM2 System On" MIDI message ?

A.The XV series can work as a GM2 sound module when receiving the "GM2 System On" MIDI message. The XV series and the Fantom employ the 256 tones and 9 rhythm sets that are called for by the GM2 standard. They also conform to the MIDI Message of the GM Level 2.

Note: Because the waveforms used by the XV Series are different from other GM2 compatible products, there is a slight difference in sound between the XV Series and other Roland GM2 compatible products . For example, the piano sound of the XV series is a bit different from that of the SC-8850 or the SD-90. The products conforming to the GM Level 2 standard are the SC-8850/SC-8820 (Sound Canvas series), SD-90/SD-80 (Studio Canvas), Virtual Sound Canvas (VSC) and the Hyper Canvas.
