How different is the xp 80's sound set to the jv 1080's?

I've been looking around for a new main key synth to replace my dying midi controller going through my jv1080. There's one in my city now, but the owner said someone's already made an offer.. so needless to say I need an answer soon :P

Re: Fantom G or Triton Extreme or Triton LE or...?

Ah c**p, I had forgotten about Turramurra. I didn't realise they had such a selection too. Looks like it's time for a pilgrimage... Thanks for your help guys. EDIT: One more thing, I noticed nobody said anything about the triton extreme, despite that I had found one at a considerably low price. Are ...

Re: Fantom G or Triton Extreme or Triton LE or...?

I am in Sydney. How annoying, I tried to fire off an email to the address on the site but hotmail can't recognise it :/ I have to ask about the PC3, how are it's orchestral sounds? Something like "symphonique" would be excellent. Also, what of it's cathedral pipe organ preset(s)? I need something ad...

Re: Fantom G or Triton Extreme or Triton LE or...?

Yep, welcome to Australia, land of short-changed consumers. :roll: (oh and spiders, those too) Honestly I have enough spare change to consider buying a brand new top-of-the-line flagship but I am too tight-fisted with my money to consider such a purchase. I was thinking about buying from America but...

Fantom G or Triton Extreme or Triton LE or...?

This is probably going to be a rather vague plea for advice but here goes.. I'm looking for a new keyboard synth which I will use live (replacing aging keyboard hooked up to JV1080, love that thing but but relying on it as main synth is getting way old) I play in sort of prog/symphonic metal band, s...

Re: Not sure whether to get a MIDI controller or synth...?

Probably. I did neglect to mention I was impressed with the Korg's pads. Is it enough for me to justify buying it over the Di? Actually I found an m50 in the classifieds in my town which is rather tempting...

Re: Not sure whether to get a MIDI controller or synth...?

Hope you're still around! I couldn't think how to immediately reply. The feeling I have regarding the Di is kinda personal... Usually I'll try and assess something by reading reviews online and all this jazz, the Di is something I became interested after trying it out in person. It was a case of "me...

Re: Not sure whether to get a MIDI controller or synth...?

Thanks for the replies, you have given me a bunch of things to explore. Looks like I should have mentioned my music style earlier.. I actually play in a prog metal band. I mix it up and add some synthetic sounding and/or analog sounds here and there (pads and saws), but at the same time there is def...

Not sure whether to get a MIDI controller or synth...?

Hi there. I feel like I’m at a bit of a crossroads for my next purchase. My current set-up is a 1080 as a sound source with 2 midi keyboards which I switch two and from in a performance - a Yahama DJX keyboard. - Casio AZ-1 Keytar (only a MIDI out) I use a variety of presets from the 1080..10 maybe?...

noob Roland sound module Q

Why would I ever want to use the "performance" feature rather than patch mode? Could I have several example situations? How would this be useful in a live performance? How would this be useful for studio recording? (side note: specifically it's a 1080 but I thought a few of the Roland S.Ms had perfo...

I have a MIDI USB cable.. a couple of Qs

I recently got a midi-USB cable with USB cable one end and 2 midi cables the other end (I assume for midi in and midi out) -I want to link up a controller with only a midi out to a laptop, but if I link that up to my laptop there will be a spare midi cord end dangling around. Can I leave it just dan...

Midi problem- controller not working.. midi out problem?

My midi controller is doing something weird. When I link it up to my sound module, the module recieves a message every time I press a key, fiddle with a knob, hit a button, etc. I know this because a light on the module underneath a caption saying "message recieved" flashes on and off each time this...

old midi controller to USB?

I have a midi controller that is probably older than the invention of usb. Also, it only has a midi out. If I had a midi/usb cable and hooked it up to a computer or something, would the keyboard still be able to control the sound module successfully as if it had midi in? Also, it seems that all midi...

Thanks heaps for that :D it sounds easy enough. I still have to start getting a grasp one day on sequencing and sampling- I would like to try branching into trying some electro one day in the far off future :D As for what music my band plays- well, there aren't many sorts of bands with keyboardists ...

Roland JV-1080 Qs... Heeelllp! Help me!

Hi everyone. I'm looking for some advice with my Roland JV-1080 Well I'm a relatively new synth user, still trying to learn about synths/midi etc. I started playing synths when I was invited to take up the position of keyboards in a band late last year- which I'm still a part of. Back then I just ha...
