A True XV-Series Synth

At the heart of this half-rack module is Roland's advanced synthesis engine based on a powerful 4-Tone architecture with stereo waveforms per Tone and expressive Matrix Control. There are 1,083 high-quality waveforms in internal memory (equivalent to 64MB), giving the XV-2020 a broad range of sounds that are further enhanced via onboard reverb, chorus and a choice of 40 multi-effects. Edited sounds can be saved to User memory.

Expandable Design

This half-rack module can hold up to 192MB of waveforms by adding two optional SRX-Series Wave Expansion Boards. These boards each contain 64MB of waveforms and hundreds of presets: from grand piano sounds or drums to collection of dance sounds.

Easy USB Connectivity

With its built-in USB port the XV-2020 simplifies everything from MIDI connections to sound editing. Just connect a USB cable from the &endash;2020 to your computer, install the included driver software and you're set. This feature also makes the XV-2020 a companion to laptop-based systems since no external MIDI interface is required. And you get 16-part multitimbral synth .

Editing Software Included

Following Roland's latest trend of integrating hardware and software, the XV-2020 includes a powerful editing program for Mac or PC. Just install the software from the included CD-ROM, make sure the USB cable is connected, and you can edit everything from multimode filters to envelopes and effects, or alter the semi-modular Structure Types, using a sleek graphic interface.
