i just purchased the jv30 used not to long ago. it's my first synth and it works great for what i do, i'm just a part time highschool musician but for some fat tracks hard intros, and beautiful piano solos, the jv30 does the trick. its very easy to use and great for learning patch modification though use is limited. i love the synth-pad-piano-and drum sounds, i use them the most.l i hope to buy a new and even better roland in the future, but for now, the jv30 is kicking a§§.

I have to agree with Andrew's comment above : its piano sound kicks ass, even if that;s all I use it for nowadays...

I`ve used this synth for about 3 years now, and I must say I`m very satisfyed with the way it behaves. Of course, the sounds are not very good, but the MIDI-controllers are excellent, and it is a very handy instrument. Perfect for beginners, very good for MIDI use (I use it for that myself). The only sounds I can describe as good on this SC-55 instrument, are the pad- and synth-sounds. The organ sounds are crap (I use a KORG CX3). Personally I would prefer the JV-35 (expandable version), but overall JV-30 is a good instrument.

The JV-30 is at the low end of the Roland Spectrum. However, it is a useful little synth and part of my stage rig. Not much polyphony, but it does feature the GS and MT-32 sound engines onboard. The best I can say about this unit is that it is better than just buying a used Sound Canvas. It features the ability to split and layer, has a portamento feature, and the faders allow you to do some limited analog-type patch modifications on the fly. The keys are typical low-end, with no feel, and the modulation lever on mine has failed, resulting in unpredictable changes in pitch. Considering the low cost of a used JV-30 (about 250-300$ in good shape), it's hard to go wrong. I'll keep playing this until it quits!
