Roland is proud to announce the XV-5050, an affordable 64-voice 1U rack size synthesizer sound module based on the ground breaking, studio standard XV-5080 technology. As the highly regarded XV-5080 continues to fill studios thanks to its massive feature set and unrivalled sound quality, the XV-5050 follows in its footsteps with a 64-voice sound engine, complete with 4-Tone multiplex synthesis and powerful Matrix Control. In addition, recognizing the increasing influence of computer-based systems, the XV-5050 sports a USB connector for USB-MIDI applications, along with S/P DIF audio outputs (Coaxial & Optical), to ensure clear audio digital reproduction. Maintaining compatibility between Roland sound modules, the comprehensive compilation of onboard preset sounds includes all preset patches from the XV-5080 plus selected patches from the Fantom, along with a selection of newly programmed patches. With two slots for optional SRX Wave Expansion Boards, the maximum onboard wave memory extends to a staggering 192MB, with zero loading time. The XV-5050 brings inspiration, creativity and excitement to making music, while meeting the latest music production demands at a very competitive price point. Features at a glance:
