Digital Nostalgia

ableton jv1080 presets

JV is a collection of digital synth patches for Ableton Live, FL Studio, Studio One and Logic Pro X. The patches are inspired by and sampled from the Roland JV-1080, a 90s rack mounted-synth that utilises both samples and synthesis to generate realistic sounds, at least for the time. The sounds may be now inherently dated, but they still retain a nostalgic charm. The JV-1080 was used heavily on Currents by Tame Impala, where it provides the organs, choirs and synth brass sounds that give the album its unique quality.

Digital Tones

JV includes 25 synth patches that use multisamples of the JV-1080 to bring its sounds directly into your DAW. The JV-1080 was used on Tame Impala’s Currents, and this pack includes patches for the cathedral organ in Yes I’m Changing; choir, keys and synth from Love/Paranoia; choir and distorted organ from List of People; as well as the synth from Gossip. The patches open opportunities for manipulation and further sound design exploration.
