OVERVIEW

61-key music workstation, with an ultra-fast workflow.

The keyboard workstation continues to evolve, responding to rapidly changing workflow requirements on the part of people who write, record and perform music. It is a dramatically different landscape than the one that birthed the idea of the keyboard workstation in the 1980s when having your sequencer, drum machine and multitimbral synthesizer all in a single package was a previously unimaginable model of efficiency. The Roland FA-06 Music Workstation moves far beyond that structure and into a modern design that reflects the performance and recording realities of the contemporary musician.

The sound engine in the Roland FA-06 is derived from the INTEGRA-7 sound module and incorporates the SuperNATURAL synth and acoustic instrument timbres. The SuperNATURAL sound engine is the same as the one in the RD-800, Rolands flagship digital piano. It contains more than 2000 sounds from the INTEGRA-7 sound module, and features internal wave expansion slots for even more sounds, providing access to Roland’s vast sample archives.

The onboard sequencer features 16 tracks with easy export via an SDHC card as a mixed stereo file, or as multitrack audio, or as MIDI data for use in live environments or in your DAW. It also has an onboard sampler based on the wildly popular SP-404SX, which can be triggered live via 16 pads with four banks.

Sound editing and creating sounds from the ground up has never been easier. Polish your creations to the finest sheen with 16 independent effects engines, six compression and equalization processors for drums, unique TFX (total effects), and EQ, chorus, and reverb that can be assigned to a global mix.

Your FA-06 can “learn” the parameters of your DAW and data can be shuttled back and forth between them with a single touch of a button. This feature is incredibly handy for performing musicians who do a lot of preparation in the studio.

As a compositional tool, your workflow will align seamlessly with the FA-06’s design. Play, create and imagine, and when you hear something you like, capture it and develop it. When you are done, transfer your work to your DAW. Once you have perfected and tweaked your idea, transfer it back to your FA-06 for presentation at live events. Whether you are writing, recording, performing or all three, your FA-06 is a perfect workflow tool.

FEATURES
  • Reimagined music workstation designed to maximize your creative flow
  • Light, mobile body with 61-note velocity-sensitive keyboard
  • Over 2000 sounds from the flagship INTEGRA-7 sound module

Comments about Roland FA-06 61 Key Workstation:

The Roland FA-06 is the best bang for the buck in the $1200 category. Simple to use as well. There are so many good quality sounds and tons of user locations for editing your own. You don't have to overwrite other sounds to store your own. Editing is easy. Sampling a no-brainer. I used to own a Kronos X, but sorry I don't need 9 synth engines on one confusing un-user-friendly, workstation. The FA is where it's at. The Piano can be just as good as the kronos with a little tweaking too. The FA also is now my Audio Interface, so not only can i sample whatever is on the PC with ease and hear it on the FA's outputs, the FA can be recorded into the PC all via one USB cable. Now i can sample Omnisphere onto my FA way more easy than when i had a Kronos. The USB audio interface functions very well, just like the Yamaha MOXF6's, and also the, oh wait the three thousand plus, Kronos, doesn't function like that.
