The Roland MV-8000 goes V2

Roland’s MV-8000 sampling workstation takes a quantum leap forward with the new MV8-VGA expander option and Version 2 software, which transforms the MV-8000 into a complete digital audio workstation with mouse and VGA monitor control.

View and edit your MV-8000 track and sample data in style on a big screen*, and use the included optical mouse to expedite operations. Even when you’re using an external display and mouse to operate the MV-8000, you can still use the onboard physical controllers (velocity pads, numeric keys, etc.) and view information on the MV-8000’s built-in LCD screen, just as before. You can use the physical controllers for VGA screen operation as well.

In addition to monitor and mouse support, Version 2 expands the MV-8000’s file-import compatibility to include Akai MPC2000/XL program files and Akai S1000/3000 program and sample files. In addition, Version 2 allows the MV-8000’s velocity pads to double as Track Mute/Solo switches. The entire upgrade, software and hardware, is user-installable.
