The XV-5080 is awesome. It does so much that to start to describe it here in great detail would be like writing a spec. sheet. The sound is "Gangsta". If you've worked with previous Roland modules (JD-990/JV-2080)
you'll find it easy to get around. The polyphony is 128 voices, & the effects
are banging. My opinion. Don't even worry about trying it out. Just buy it. If you don't like it I'd personally think that some thin's wrong with you, unless you're lookin' for a sampler. It does'nt sample but does play back samples from some of the major sampler manufacturers.
