In the Sound Modules category, Roland are offering up the XV2020 64-Voice Expable Synthesizer Module  for our consideration... What's it all about then?

The XV-2020 64-Voice Expandable Synthesizer Module puts Roland's flagship XV sounds in a convenient half-rack design complete with USB. Expandable via 2 SRX-Series Wave Expansion Boards, it's like a powerful 'plug-in' synth with up to 192MB of sounds, three independent effects processors and intuitive editing software.

Sound modules are basically sound generators - or synthesisers, if you prefer - but without the keyboard, well, technically-speaking anyway. They are generally triggered by MIDI messages to produce its on-board sound.

What others are saying:

i really do not use any feautures on this unit so i can't really comment, but the feautures in the unit itself seems good.

everything is fine. if you are going to be controlling the unit manually than i suggest that you don't do it in the dark, but the lighted numbers on the front.that is my only gripe. i wish they would have made the unit more recognizeable in the dark enviroment.

i think the price is fair, but it could be a little cheaper.

the sounds are beautiful in such a little package. the piano is superb, and the crchestra is very good.overall sounds are all exellent

if customer support is a must. i would not recommend roland to anyone. i still want to choke the guy out at roland that didn't help me with anything, but attitude and debating.

this is my first module, and i am in love with it. this will be what i will consider a classic in my book.
