However, if I had to choose just one I would go with the JV because of the amount of expansion cards and the fact that the JV expansion cards seem to be a lot less expensive that e-mu ones. The JV also sounds better to my ear, YMMV.

That said, I think post-processing is the norm with most synthetic productions, so base sound quality may not be that strong of a determinant. I find the modern Proteus-engine machines to work very well with pedals and rack processors in that they provide a sound quality that lets post-fx shine. So it depends if you want the warmer and thicker tone of the Roland or the thinner, more precise sound of the E-mu.

was looking at the E-MU and JV's.. but I'm thinking maybe Kurzweil K2000RS.
just thought I'd share. Might wanna take a look at those.
