Roland JV-1080 Patches

Compatible with: JV-1010, JV-1080, JV-2080, XP-30, XP-50, XP-60, XP-80, XV-88, XV-
2020, XV-3080, XV-5050, XV-5080.

Before i start: If you’re looking for pianos, rhodes, clavis, saxophones, brass, harmonicas
or a lucky man preset, you’re not going to find them in this set, that’s for sure.

Ok! Here it is folks!! After so many requests the set is out. 128 patches total, and best of
all, no expansion cards are necessary for this soundset! So how does it sound? In short
it’s a mixture of some analog style, classic digital and atmospheric patches. The demo
itself took me 3 weeks, so i hope you check every bit of it. There are 97 patches in it
which is why it takes so much time! If you still have any questions feel free to ask but i
believe the patches will speak for themselves. Believe or not, but the fastest way to see
everything in the demo is to pick a day and dedicate 40 minutes for the whole thing.
Because if you plan to constantly jump over the Youtube progress bar trying to grab as
much as possible in least amount of time, you will miss a lot of cool patches and in the
end it might even take you longer than what the actual demo lasts! So, calm down, sit
back, relax and enjoy the demo from start to finish! I recommend watching it in full

Patch List
When programming this soundset I’ve tried to cover as much areas as i could. These
should be enough for everyone, minus what i’ve mentioned in the intro of this page. :o)
To give you an idea of the content i’m also providing a patch list. Some of the names are
abstract, but many are on the point i.e. D-50 Fanta is obviously a reference and
emulation of a D-50 patch, and so on. When emulating i go beyond selecting “the right
waveform”, but more concentrate on the frequency spectra and performance of the
original machine then try to replicate that in the patch. Same can be noticed with couple
of hybrid emulations i did in this soundset such as Prophet VS, Kawai and Ensoniq
patches. I have privilege to own original machines which makes things easier to clone on
a 1080 (well, at least that much how its engine allows me to). 2/21

Hey Don,
i have to write this comment just to tell you how much I appreciate and
respect your programming skills – without a doubt there’s lots of experience in it.. I’m into
synths too but this is deep – glad that there is someone bringing up top quality in times of fast
mass consumption. I’m sold (after being trance-hypnotized by the video-clip.. ;-))
Love the antithesis in this project concerning the retro analog hype… in the right hands these
machines rock!!
Thanks for your efford – and keep up the quality!! 1++
Best, Hans

Thank you for your kind words! I did try to push the envelope a bit
and go one step beyond the usual set of bread and butter
programs. Because this machine allows it to, i’ve said to myself,
hey let’s do it – it might take a little bit longer but it will be worth the trouble. And
also to show all of the people who sold their 1080 thinking it’s outdated, that they
were wrong. Bottom line: With so much features under the hood, this synth will
never get old.

When I bought this module I was a bit worried It could not do fat basses or
Analog style pads/strings – After getting this soundset I realise I was wrong.
I can honestly say these patches are absolutely fantastic, I am totally in awe of the range of
sounds offered here the VS and Ensoniq patches in particular are simply stunning as are the
unashamedly fat Basses.The ethereal & ambient Pads will come in Handy for the Video game

Wow! Thanks for the positive vibe! I am in the middle of the work
for the JD soundset so i’m focused there and kinda forgot about
this soundset. As of hardware, well yeah there are some cool
boxes out there – Super JV being one of them. Just like there’s
also a ton of great software. I use both.

Hi Don,
I’m about to buy a second hand Roland XV-5050 and I’m interested in this
patches soundset. I’ve seen that the 5050 has a 128 user preset area, that are blank by factory
default. Can I load your 128 patches into this area, so none of the original presets are erased?
Thank you very much!


Don Solaris
February 9, 2016 at 20:14
You can’t erase original factory presets in 5050. 5/21

So, it has free memory/storage area to uploads your
sounds? I want to make shure if original factory presets
+ your sounds can coexist in a 5050. Thank you!


Don Solaris
February 10, 2016 at 09:14
Yup! My sounds are in U:1-128. Factory sounds
are in A:1-128, B:1-128… and so on!


March 11, 2016 at 12:38

I was so interested in this soundset that I bought a JV1080 and the moment
that I got it I purchased the soundset from Don Solaris. After a little hassle
with getting the .sysex files on the machine (don`t use a usb to midi cable) it worked like a
charm. I tried all presets and there are some great sounds in there that I will definitly use in my
new tracks from now on. I especially like the basses (try using different velocities) and all the
ambient/space sounds this is great stuff! So I would like to see a part 2 in the future because
compared to other soundsets for the JV1080 this is the absolute best you can get!


April 19, 2016 at 00:48

Absolutely fantastic soundset, that shows what a beautiful and powerful

machine the JV 1080 is even today, or should I say, ‘especially’ today!?!!
Some fantastic basses, really original analog interpratations, and “Aural Exciter” immediately
made it into my top5 of ‘Best Pad Sounds ever’. If you own a JV, this soundset is a must have! 6/21

Hello Don,

Thank you for this wonderful sounds for my JV1080

Love the analog patches, reaaaaaaaally inspiring. And Now I’m waiting for a part II Set as
“Analog Dreaming”. I’m sure ther is a BIG Market for that !!
Please, I know you can do it:-)
Thank you:-)

Just loaded the soundset on my XP-50. Sounds great, excellent basses and
evolving pads, interesting modulations. Makes me want to sequence with the good old Roland
alone, again, like I used to 20 years ago.
If only it had assignables outs for external fx.
Anyways, patch 49 ChoralEchoes is dead silent on my synth. Am I the only one ?
Don, I can provide you with the soundset in SVD format, which would allow XP-50/60/80
owners to load the sounds without the need of a computer or a SysEx capable sequencer. Just
let me know.
Keep up the good work!


Don Solaris
May 8, 2016 at 22:53

Hi! I don’t distribute SVD format since 90% of ppl no longer

use/have floppies. Patch 49 ChoralEchoes works perfect in XP-50.
I just tested it. Sorry for the issue, but it ain’t my fault. In case you 7/21

May 8, 2016 at 23:07
Checksum is correct, Sir!
And all the other 127 User patches are sounding okay,
so I suppose there’s something wrong in my synth settings or some levels
at zero. No big deal.
I’ll dive into the Patch parameters later, still have a few brain cell wired to
edit this thing quickly. Amazing after all these years.
And who said I used floppies? Gotek rules. :p
I’ll keep you posted.

wow. these sounds are awesome! the basses are incredible. bought them
after listening to the youtube demo 3 times. some of the best pads that i
have ever heard period. just spent the last few hours testing every sound. not a single bad
sound. i have a lot of secret weapons, now thanks to Don Solaris, I have another in the iv-1080.
Thank you.

Don, thank you for the fabulous sound set. I stayed up much later than I
should have last night because I just couldn’t stop browsing through the
patches on my 1080. I will be using it in a live worship setting, and used one of your patches
last night for our youth gathering. The sound was so sweet! FYI, I used the iConnectMIDI2+ to
get the SysEx file into the Roland from a Mac running SysEx Librarian. Worked flawlessly.
Thanks again for the amazing sounds!

Stumbled across the demo video on YouTube. Watched it in it’s entirety.

Followed up, and purchased the patches. They are bloody marvellous.
The JV-1080 is a underrated module, and these show it what it’s capable of.. well done sir!

anything related to JD990. Feel free to click on
it. It’s right above. Cheers!!!


September 29, 2016 at 16:45
I’m sorry I was wrong. It wasn’t the end
of the video i was referring to. I hadn’t
watched it for awhile but at mid way
about 14:30 minutes in there is some comment about
giving 64 more patches for your “jd990 sound set” to
people that had already bought sound set. I was
anticipating that since last year, that was just a joke?.

Don Solaris
September 29, 2016 at 16:51
Oh that part. Hehe, nope it’s not a joke.
It’s for real! But i keep it low profile,
since others will have to pay for it once it
gets online. (just trying to earn some cash LOL!) However
those who bought the first JD990 soundset are getting it
for free, as i promised in the video. JD990 demos are
complete but i still didn’t built a video. I’m upgrading to
16GB of RAM and moving from 2 to 6 core. This should
speed up things a bit. Because doing first vid was real
pain. CPU arrived but still awaiting for the RAM. Then i’ll
do the vid, and then the soundset will be sent out. So if
you bought the first JD990, you can consider yourself a
lucky bastard now! But please give me some time. The vid
must be perfect!

in small place, but i was way too confusing haha….


October 12, 2016 at 21:36

What simply blows my mind is that a synth made over 20 years ago still not
only has incredible utility, but also programmable spaces within it that have
yet to be systematically explored and categorized. In other words – this is the best set of
patches I’ve heard for the 1080 yet. It is like the best of the best (for my taste) of the best
expansion cards, which are running close to $100 a pop nowadays. For the price, this is a no
MOTU Express XT w. SysEx Librarian worked perfectly.

Is it possible to import your patches soundset into an Integra-7? I didn’t seem mention of them
being compatible. In fact, I can’t find anything in the Integra-7 manual that would suggest I can
import classic banks of JV-1080 user sounds into it, but in this article: you did mention “now we have the Integra, which
continues where XV series left, maintaining full compatibility and architecture of the Super
JV.” which compelled me to ask.

Sorry. I thought someone was trolling me.
Because absolutely everything is explicitly
written in the video. Every single recording is
detailed, what is it’s content, which patches it contains, where
the drums originate and so on. To answer original question, yes
all the drums come from stock JV-1080. I did not use any
expansion cards or external samplers.

December 16, 2016 at 02:57
Is the JV-1080 custom set included in the soundset?


Don Solaris
December 16, 2016 at 10:11
Actually no because it was never finished. It
contains just a dozen custom drums that are
spread over keyboard, set to different outputs,
really messy to work with, even for myself when i got back to it
after a few months.


February 12, 2017 at 20:39

Hello, I have come across many of your posts and still confused. Simply put,
can the integra 7 reach the lush character of the 990, or even close (how
close- just a few basic examples) its actually the 800 character I am after. I am considering the
integra or 990, just afraid of something so old at this point. If so are your 1080 patches
compatible with the integra if I purchase them. Any suggestions appreciated. I’m new to the
game but technically able to understand. Integra apparently has 800 waveforms.

I don’t want to sound rude but i really don’t
know how should i answer your question. I do
not have Roland Integra. I can recommend
asking it on the forum. There is a link to it at the top of this page.
I hope someone can solve the dilemma. It is very interesting
question to begin with.


February 20, 2017 at 16:44
Not at all. Your replies are well
respected! Sorry I wasn’t clear, I was
referencing the integra to be predicated
as a 1080 -5080 as a whole since that’s how Roland
markets it ; calling it their history. So from there I was
trying to determine via your expertise and hoping it could
satisfy my thirst for what appears to be the 990s superior
silky lush character, along with the 800 grit (or close to).
Since so many of the combined waveforms are all bundled
into the 7. I just don’t know if destructive compression as 16/21
