I have been able to dive into this little box with a computer and a software editor. It's a very powerful synth "hidden" here. You can make "analog" synth sounds and store them in user memory. In this way it really expands it's power since the preset synth sounds are very dull and boring. You can even have PWM. How? There is an inverted sawtooth and if you mix that with a normal sawtooth there will be silence...BUT, just detune one of them slightly and what you will here is a classic pwm-sound! My advice to you that have this module is: get a software editor and let the horses out! The SH price is quite low and you will get a wolf in sheep clothes...

Ya know what folks - This is great little box despite it age - I use it as a filler module - that works great in that role - The JV-1010 is great, and great sounding - does it sound like a JV-1080 and 2080 - Sure does, Does it sound as crisp as those units - Probably not - But it does not need too - and alot of pro studios have used this thing in their recordings of alot of artist - I have Triton, I have Ensoniq ZR, Yamaha EX-5 and JV-880 (x2) for double poly - Buy one if you can find one - It has a butt load of sounds - It has excellent rhodes sounds, pianos are ok, but do sound kind of muted - Strings pads are great guitars are ok, trumpets, horns saxes sound like JV no getting around that (for good or bad)! - Trust me folks it is a great little unit - Not a main board sound, but great background sounds - hope this helps...

The JV1010 is good at real instruments but synth sounds are bad(boring), really. Also there are to many sounds. A lot of the patches sound very much the same. It would have been a lot better if the JV1010 had 200 patches concentrated at real instruments. It's a nice complement to your analog/VA synth. There are some very nice pianos, strings, organs, horns etc. Real Roland quality waves.

With soundiver this thing can do alot of great sounds. Don't just stay in presets. I use this machine for about 4 years now in studio and on stage and I have no problems... great for any kind of music

Tuve mi JV-1010 hace como 5 meses, el cual fue el mejor modulo que he tenido (antes usaba un alesis S4,Roland JV-880,Korg X5DR) y creo que es uno de los mejores modulos que he escuchado, los pianos, pianos electricos, organos, cuerdas, vientos, son excelentes,ademas tiene la ventaja de aceptar una expansion SR-JV80. Tuve que deshacerme, ya que compre mi XV-88.
