Card Differences

Some of the SR-JV80 cards behave differently in certain synthesizers. For instance, the SR-JV80-18 when installed in anything below a JV-1080 will have 203 patches, whereas it gets 256 patches on a JV-1080 and above. When you install SR-JV80-04 in a JD-990, you get exclusive extra patches that none of the other series get.

SRX Missing Patches

For the waveforms that the SRX cards *do* have (again some have a few missing), the JV patches are missing. Mark has converted and cobbled together Roland's packages that they sometimes distributed with the backported JV80 patches:
