Early nineties Roland filter and structure (JD990 / S770)

Postby portland » Sat Apr 26, 2008 1:00 am

I'm just wondering. Since the JD990 is so good, can we assume that the S770 is a sampler-version of that unit? I've read that the filters are the same, and the capabilities are similar (24 polyphony, x-mod for samples). Obviously the S770 has a few extra things associated with samplers, but can we assume the sound quality to be similar? I'm just wondering, because a JD990 with user sampling would be great!

The following all have the same filter, to the best of my knowledge:

JD-800
JD-990
S-770
S-750
S-760
SP-700
DJ-70
DJ-70mkII

...and yes, the S-7x0 samplers are very much like a JD-990 with user waves.

I did some research and found that the structures for the JD990 and S770 are the same - however, I don't think the S770 can do that in realtime; the algorithms are for resampling.
