Roland JV-90 Expandable Synthesizer

About This Keyboard
This Roland JV-90 came to us as a trade-in and seems to be in very good condition. We aren't experts on this model but it seems to be functioning well with everything we could figure out how to test working correctly. We can't guarantee that all of the buttons are working correct because we don't know what they are supposed to do. However, the ones we figured out how to test did make the appropriate changes but a couple of them were harder to push than others, We don't have any cards for the keyboard so those buttons are untested. The keys all play and there are no chipped or broken ones, the pitch bender and sliders work correctly and cosmetically it is well above average with just a couple of small scuffs and scratches here and there.
The JV-90 In General
The Roland JV-90 Expandable Synthesizer allows you to create a wide variety of sonic textures by digitally manipulating the high-quality on-board sounds. By installing an optional Voice Expansion Board, you can increase the number of sounds available and the instrument's maximum polyphony. When fully expanded, the JV-90 is a versatile instrument that can be used for live performances, studio recordings and desk-top music applications.
The Patch Play mode allows you to control different sounds m real-time, and the Performance Play mode allows you to spontaneously control 8 Parts and MIDI channels. In addition, a number of Key Modes can enhance any performance. If an optional Voice Expansion Board is installed, 28 voices and more sounds (Parts) are added to the 28 voices
already provided by the JV-90.
Not only will you find basic waveforms (sawtooth, square wave, pulse waves etc.), but a wide variety of unusual waveforms are provided as well. By modifying these waveforms with FXM (Frequency Cross Modulation), even more sophisticated sounds can be achieved. And by using optional PCM cards or Wave Expansion Boards, new waveforms can be added.
The JV-90's sliders and optional footswitches and pedals can be used to change the instrument's parameters in
realtime. The JV-90's 76-note keyboard features Velocity sensitivity and Aftertouch sensitivity; two
features which enhance any performance.
