Roland Recreates Classic JV-1080 Synth As Software Plugin
Rounik Sethi on Sat, December 23rd 0 comments
Considered one of the most popular synthesizers in Roland history, Roland Cloud has brought the classic JV-1080 back to life in software plugin format. And it sounds good!

For some it appears that Roland Cloud is the gift that keeps on giving. As it is constantly updated with new plugins, Roland Cloud appears to be better value by the month.

In time for Christmas, Roland Cloud 4.8 has been released and a new instrument plugin has been added which  happens to be one of the most popular hardware synthesizers in history, Roland JV-1080.

Here's what Roland tells us about this new addition:

The most famous of the Roland PCM powerhouses, the Roland JV-1080 is the ‘down to the circuit’ inspiration for the Roland Cloud JV-1080 software plugin. It was a huge success with artists and producers, and eventually lead to even more powerful models in the series such as the JV-2080 and XV-5080.

While the Roland Cloud JV-1080 has the look, feel and factory patches of the original, it has the expanded effects, additional waveforms, and increased polyphony of its successors.   It’s like the JV-1080 you know and love, but enhanced to go toe to toe in your DAW with any contemporary software synthesizer.

If you are a Roland Cloud Core Member or are enjoying our 30 day free trial, you should see the JV-1080 available for download and installation via Roland Cloud Manager!
