ROLAND: JV-1080 Vs. KORG x50

Post by BlackGnosis » Fri Nov 30, 2007 6:42 pm

I would like to get a nice synth that has nice choir voies and strings on it, plus a little extra to play with, I like the features on both, yet I havent had any chances to play on a JV, I like what they both can do but IM curious to hear what the forum thinks of either synth and its use for an "orchestal" feel to a electronic music style.

This sort of topic goes in 'Buyer's Guide'.
I didn't get where I am today by posting on internet forums.

I'd vote for the JV-1080 with some expansion board such the session, orch 1 and vocal.
