In a show of commitment to the MV-8000 platform, and in response to top requests from MV users in the field, Roland announces the newest software upgrade for the MV-8000: Version 3.5. This free upgrade adds several important “recorder-like” functions to the MV’s feature set. New features are outlined below.

From making beats to sampling and CD-burning, the MV-8000 Production Studio does it all—quickly and elegantly. Sample your own sounds or import Roland, Akai, ACID and .WAV libraries, then arrange it all using 16 velocity/aftertouch-sensitive pads and Roland’s most powerful audio/MIDI sequencer. Add a selection of professional COSM effects, onboard mastering tools, a built-in CD-RW drive and USB port, and you’ve got the ultimate studio for today’s producers.

Introducing VGA expansion for the MV-8000!
It’s even easier to take control of your beats and your mix with the new MV8-VGA expansion board, exclusively for the MV-8000. This easy-to-install board lets you connect any VGA-compatible monitor directly to the MV-8000, creating a big-screen working environment. Mouse support is also added with this upgrade; optical mouse included.
