I've just picked up a roland vintage synth module and am in love with many of the sounds - all the ones I grew up with (rhodes, hammond, mellotron etc). Banged into my looper, you get this glorious impenetrable wall of sound. I can seriously see myself doing a gig sans geetar at some point.
Somewhat lacking in programability (by today's standards) but the sounds....
I think not, tho' I couldn't be 100% certain. I have the JV1010 which is programmable via SoundDiver (special edition bundled with the hw) Just about everything is tweakable with a pc and a midi interface. Surely the 1080 is similar, barely controllable from the front panel, but with sound diver goes to nerd heaven.
I had that JV1080 model which I sold last year. Wish I had it back now. I purchased a new Roland Fantom XR ,which is great, but I need a second for my current setup I'm putting together. Looking at the XV-5050 or the JV-1010 also. Gotta figure out a way to rackmount the JV-1010 though.
since my last reply I've moved on to looping all sorts of synths and have done sets with the following, usually solo, often just through a filter e.g. frostwave resonator, korg mini-kp or korg monotron
