The JV-880 is the rack-mount version of the JV-80 keyboard and features powerful multi-timbral capabilities combined with impressive sound editing capability, all in a 1U rack space. The immediate forerunner to the immensely popular JV-1080/2080, the 880 provides the same high quality sounds for which the entire JV line has come to be respected. And like its descendants, the JV-880's sampled waveform memory can be expanded (to 14 Mbytes) using Roland's series of SR-JV80 expansion boards and SO-PCM1 cards. Editing sounds is done via the rotary encoder that lets you select parameters and set values at the touch of a button. When editing you can audition sounds right from the front panel by pressing the preview button. There are TVF (filter), TVA (amp), micro-tuning, and multiple LFOs. An onboard effects processor with various types of chorus, reverb, and delays rounds out the package.

Alternative synths to the Roland D-550?

What are you trying to do that the 880 doesn't do? The D50 is a great compliment to the JV line. I would however get a D-05 instead a vintage one. They sound exactly the same and the don't have the issues of a 30 year old synth
