SRX-07 Ultimate Keys (SR-JV80 Collection Vol.2)
Expansion board

Roland SRX-07 Ultimate Keys

  The SRX-07 "Ultimate Keys" SRX series expansion board, a joint effort between Roland and Spectrasonics, contains all the waveforms from Roland's SR-JV80-04 "Vintage Synth", SR-JV80-08 "Keyboards of the '60s & '60s", and SR-JV80-10 "Bass & Drums" expansion boards - plus, select waves from SR-JV80-09 "Session" and SR-JV80-03 "Piano".

This board includes 860 waveforms, and all sounds have been completely reprogrammed into 475 new Patches and 11 new Rhythm Sets (optimized for the XV Series' powerful synth architecture and effects).

The new programming is definitely "refreshing" the "old" sounds, with more up-to-date patches and an overall more polished and "refined" sonic flavor.

Most original SR-JV80 Patch and Rhythm Set data can be loaded into the unit.

The sounds offer an incredible range of sounds, from classic organs (Hammond, Vox, Farfisa etc.), electric pianos, and synthesizers, to Mellotron, Clavinet, fingered and slap bass, bright and soft pads, Solina, and much, much more.

Check out the audio examples below to have an idea of what this expansion board can do.
