I had it about a week and the thing that disapointed me the most was that alot of the tones sound the GOTDAM same. but thats PCM I tryed to trade it for a Planet Phatt. but I found that if you mess with every thing, layering the tones, effects, e.q. you can get some nice sounding music. One thing that I was expecting was better pianos and Synths when I Orderd it. this gots to be the best in its price range I got the keyboard version Sk 88 Pro for $398.00 these use to go for $888.00 ! I cant bitch Peace RAZA

okok if thats the case then I will give it another try....maybe I should boost up the volume or something or add some chorus....or maybe try repathing some of the patches.....

Probably you just can't use it... The SC88Pro is a great module! OK, it is officially GM, but more then 1000 sounds is a little more then 128, no? And so if it has those GM sounds. I don't mind, these sounds are very usable too, they're good quality! BTW: ever played an old pc-game with midi-music thru the SC88Pro? The old game is suddenly sooo cool!

The SC88Pro use the same engine as the JV/XP series, but offers more in some fields: More memory standard (more sounds), 32 parts multi (even a JV2080 can't help you there), one FX processor more then the JV1080 (the extra delay FX), more types insert FX (like dance-oriented lofi-FX) then JV1080/2080...

Another remark: Last time when i was in the local music store i tested the XV-88: a lot of it's sounds are the same as the SC88Pro...

I've the SC88Pro for a few years now and still use it as my main module since it's so good and versatile! It really deserves his name: PRO ! Check for yourself:

SC-88 pro is Good ? shit!!!! I rented it just for sampling and I got tired of it in just 2 hours. The patches are crap.... is this wat GS shit is all about...? XG patches are much much better.... damn ...even my old TG33 vector synth has more capabilities..... or my cheapo GM soundcard has more character than the SC88... wat the hell is wrong with roland ?

It's a really good box. Equipped with remarkable sounds. Drum sets are quite shite, though. Audio quality is excellent! Bunch of useful effects. Audio input (!!) - this lets you e.g. make use of any other box while playing SC. Easy to use. Piano and strings are very good (Roland), but sometimes I feel like getting a sampler. Excellent fat bass sounds. This box has not 42 drum sets (as they want you to believe), be aware SC88 Pro has several modes (SC55 etc), and some drum sets are simply doubled. I have got a diskette with demo songs (MID) written especially for that box, and believe me, some are simply AMAZING (the guitars!!!). Definitely worth its price. SC88 Pro is something to buy, but not as your first instrument, I think. I use it together with MC 303. This is really fun. MC 303 arpeggiator and SC88 Pro sounds - you can't stand a chance, guys.
