    I've got one. I did this with a mks 20 and a 1080. Not the best string writing, I'm basically just padding with it, but hey...it is what it is. I wish I'd never sold it. Great for a quick arr. This was a down and quick one dayer rush job.. Cathi sounds great. First and only take.

    I have an XP-80 which is the same engine as the JV. I also have the Bass and Drums, World, Special FX, and Orchesta II card in it.

    It sounds great. I am always amazed at how many musical sounds are in it based on the amount of rom it has. The world expansion card is great. it may not have the perfect duduk, like Bela D's, but it has a ton of nice musical patches that inspire me.

    I am toying with buying a Roland D-50 for this reason. It has nowhere near the horse power of todays soft synths but it just sounds bloody fantastic IMHO.

    Also, the JV expansion card Orch I (I wish I had it instead of Orch II) has a fantastic warm string patch on it that I love, love love. (I had an XP-30 for a while and this card was included) It doesn't sound as real as a lot of the huge libs, but again, is very musical sounding and so damn warm.

    2 cents,

    I have 3 1080's and an XV-3080. Sound good, but orchestrally no comparison to EW, etc.

    But great back in the day!

    yup, load up tons string sample is not always necessary, and eat up tons of system resources. When i just padding i use 1080 as bass line and a small sample size string ensemble patch as pad background.

    , or even just add one more solo string, it just sound like
    a orchestral band.

    I still use my JV-880 a lot. Bought it before the 1080 came out but it also has some really nice string sounds.

    I have the XP-30 and I can get a lot of mileage out of it. You're right about the "Warm Violins" patch. There is something just magic about that one. In addition to the orchestral stuff, there are just a ton of other really good meat and potatoes sounds. I wont be selling mine anytime soon.
