I have played this at a local music store and I loved it so I bought it. It has so many features for the money
Ok so I purchased this item about 2 weeks ago. I wanted to check out all the features before I came back and wrote. Let's start off with what I don't like. Well there was only 1 thing... the sequencer. I have been producing for 11 years and I have never seen a sequencer that was difficult when creating a full song with breakdowns. I mean creating a loop us easy, but after using the MPC 2000 for the last 7 years, I got tired of the Fantom X6's sequencer. You cannot copy all events in 1 stroke, but you have to copy every note by note. This is so fustrating but lets move on. Sounds are incredible. I'm amazed everyday at how I can manipulate sounds on so many ways. The mastering quality puts ameturs on the level of Professionals. The Mixer screen allows you to tweak each intrument, and there are so many drum kits you shoudl never have 2 songs that sound the same. Let's talk about sampling. I have never sampled and usually like to create beats from scratch. This has changed my mind. This is because it makes sampling so easy. You can sample something, chop it up and trigger it where you want and it will even sync the tempo of the sample to your song with just a few steps. This is phenomenial. All and all I love this keyboard and I'm sure I will keep it for years to come.
The Phantom series have the best sequencers in the market. It's easy to build sequences and arrange, and its is very easy to use. The Sample Skip back feature is greatest thing since peanutbutter and jelly and although the sounds are not the best compared to the motief es series, it still allows you to create your own patches and create your own sounds.
I own this machine. To date this is perhaps the best keyboard workstation offering ever available from any manufacturer. I think it has an awesome value in a production studio whether small or large. What it doesnt have is a hard drive, mic pre, voice transformer effect, and it sports a very limitted d-beam missing perhaps one of the best features ever ...addlib...why???????? Also does not allow you to tweak the Variphrase functions...the pads are not as sick as the MV8000 but they are way better than the fantom s pads...and kill the lousy mc909 pads. If you are used to computer sequencing the fantom's sequencer will not be easy to get used to ...but none the less a killer board..beats all the others by a mile.
I bought this board probably 3 or 4 years ago and instantly fell in love. Over time I'm beginning to realize the patches aren't quite the quality I'm looking for. I noticed rolling the bass completely off my amp helped with clarity alot. Roland really did it with the upgrade the fantom Gs. Their patches are pretty nice. But I bought the wrong board for myself. I need a simple board with many nice sounds in it instead of one that is infinately adjustable and a complete studio in one. Overall this is a great board, top of the line, for the right person
This piano has it all better then all the pianos made. This piano has effects that sound really clear. Then there is those inputs where you could put more to it like bass, giutar, trumpet any instrument. It's all on one piano. No piano has that kind of design that this piano has. IT HAS IT ALL!!!!!
While I am a skilled guitarist I am not a keyboard player, however this X6 is not only turning me into one quick, but has taken my sound to a new level. I originally bought the Juno just so I could get some keyboard sounds into my recordings. Problem is I outgrew it very quickly.This is not a toy but a serious workstation that will allow you to be a one man band. The learning curve is not that tough but you need to build a relationship with it first, I don?t think even by next year I will now all of it?s features. I have only scratched what this can do and it still amazes me that it can do some of the things it does.I added a couple of SRX sample boards to get some more sounds into the unit (World and Ultimate Keys) and I couldn't be happier with it. The sounds are very professional and the best I have ever heard from any keyboard. I wish I would have taken more time to save the money for this unit in the first place, a great investment for the price.
This keyboard makes a difference in our services. This board has good quality sounds, this has everything we wanted
I did my shopping for months and months. Did my research just like you are right now. The Yamaha Motif is cool and the Triton are great boards, don't get me wrong here.... but, the Roland Fantom X-6 sounds UNBELIEVABLE! The onboard sounds blow everything away, in every genre... and I don't say that lightly. Motif and Triton just don't cut it compared to the Fantom. The big LCD display is wonderful and production so easy, with every feature you could every want on board right in front of you.... don't worry about have a million devices, the Fantom has it all.I purchased the ram and storage card so that I could store and do the sampling I need to. But LISTEN UP to those that want to get this board: You must buy the Expansion cards for this board, they are somehow even more unbelievable then the onboard sounds. SO crystal clear and full sounding, really go to your local music store and listen to the difference your self.My only quarrel with this board is the PC to Fantom features... wish I had more options then just file transfer and midi. But even that portion is simple, well designed... thats why I gave features a 4.5 out of 5.After I purchased this board all of my friends and fellow musicians could not believe how all of a sudden I sounded Professional.... and you wanna know a secret, I used all factory sounds, no effects, not even any mixing.... the sounds are THAT GOOD.
After Hurricane Katrina my studio is looking good again because of this magnificient Workstation. It has crystal clear sound out the A-Hole the sampler is clean. Get ready to spend hours just going through the amazing sounds, and the Drum sounds, Wow!!! How'd they do that. Just what I needed to make things right again. Thanks Roland.
