JV90 build and sound - Reviews Roland JV-90

Value For Money : Excellent Audience: Anyone
Build

Keyboard has good feel and is quiet. The body is lightweight and slim. Knobs and switches are safely indented in the face. Screen is bright clear and simple.

Sounds

Piano The piano has always been robust and cutting.
Organ I've never used for organ
Strings Pads are lush
Analog synth Does pads or solo with portamento and effects, and 4 parts per note.
Brass Brass is superb and capable of analog sounds
Drums Gives enough kit choices from natural to special effects

Polyphony

Polyphony is definitely the issue. Nothing new there. Layering with another keyboard is recommended.

Editing

Editing is super easy and able to leave menu parts you edit the most on screen

Overall Review

Love it. Sounds can be put in my 2 JV880's giving me 84 notes of polyphony without the need for expansion boards. 76 keys and lightweight.
