The Ultimate Roland Sound Module
The Roland XV-5080 stepped onto the scene in 2000, leaving a mighty footprint. Described for years as “Roland's ultimate sound module,” the XV-5080 boasted immense PCM-based multitimbral synthesis power, sophisticated modulation, an array of pro-quality DSP effects, and compatibility with the popular SRX Expansion Board series.
One PCM Synth to Rule Them All
Building on the successes of the JV-1080 and JV-2080, the XV-5080’s fidelity and technological adaptability were unmatched at the time. Musicians and producers increasingly turned to the XV-5080 in place of slower and less convenient samplers. It was embraced heavily by composers and producers spanning a wide range of genres, making the rackmount XV-5080 an undisputed hit.
