OVERVIEW

Includes Fantom-G8 workstation, stand, and bench.

The Roland Fantom-G8 Workstation is a dream keyboard instrument that redefines the boundaries of playability and creativity. Roland has included an advanced sound engine, revolutionary ARX SuperNATURAL expansion bay, large-sized color LCD, powerful audio/MIDI sequencer, first-class "Ivory Feel" weighted keys and more to the Fantom G8.

Advanced Sound Engine

Driven by a powerful audio processor, the Roland Fantom-G8 provides incredible sonic depth and versatility. With twice the wave-ROM capacity of its predecessor, it contains a treasure trove of Roland's world-famous SRX-quality sounds, but what really sets this instrument apart is its ARX expansion, which allows additional SuperNATURAL sound-sets and fully dedicated synth and effects engines to be added to this already powerful live workstation.

SuperNATURAL ARX Expansion

Fantom-G8 keyboard workstation provides ARX slots that accommodate two SuperNATURAL expansion boards. SuperNATURAL is Roland's unique behavior-modeling technology that enables organic, emotional expression previously unattainable in synthesizers. Applied to traditional-instrument sounds, SuperNATURAL enables the delicate, organic tonal changes and playing nuances of real musical instruments. It's also a powerful tool for electronic and non-traditional sounds, breathing amazing life and expression into audio synthesis.

Power Sequencer Onboard

The Fantom-G is the first Roland instrument to feature Roland's newly designed power sequencer. In conjunction with the large-size LCD, this pro-level composition tool provides 128 tracks (including 24 audio tracks) in a fully integrated audio/MIDI graphical environment. A mouse can be also incorporated for computer-like speed and ease. The keyboard other convenient features include combo XLR and TRS connector, phantom power for condenser mics, Hi-Z input for guitar and bass, and line input. This road-ready package also includes a keyboard stand and bench.

Luxurious Extra-Wide LCD

One look and touch and you'll know that the Fantom-G8 is an instrument without equal. Only the highest-quality materials have been used to create this dream synth, with a stylish, futuristic design that will turn heads. Front and center is the extra-large 8.5" wide TFT color LCD for enhanced productivity. A first-class assortment of hands- on controls is provided as well, including eight sliders, four knobs, and ten buttons below the LCD.

Amazing FX

Fantom-G8 is loaded with a state-of-the-art effects engine, with multi-effects available for each Fantom-G8 sound/part. In 16-part multi-timbre mode, up to 22 effect routings can be used simultaneously. Create complex setups with 16 insert effects per multitimbral patch group, plus global reverbs and choruses. Mastering effects are provided for polishing songs created with the onboard sequencer.

Supreme Keyboard Feel & Action

The Fantom-G8 is outfitted with Roland's top-of-the-line PHA II "Ivory Feel" keyboard. This amazing keyboard technology reproduces the real surface feel of ivory acoustic piano keys providing a familiar stability and comfort to the pianist. The white keys have a two-piece structure which reduces the developed keyboard surface material is designed to absorb moisture, ensuring a secure, slip-proof feel that your fingers will love.

Comments about Roland FANTOM-G8 Package:

I bought this package, and was very disappointed with the sound of the amp and the quality of the stand. The amp is just a cheap piece of crap. I tried tweaking it for about an hour without any improvement. The stand is not sturdy enough to hold the 80lb keyboard. It has already started to bend under the weight. The Fantom however worked great as expected.
