FANTOM-08 brings your musical vision to fruition.
Hailing from the legendary Roland FANTOM pedigree, the 88-key FANTOM-08 synthesizer keyboard was designed to easily fit into your workflow, while giving you powerful synthesis and customizable creative control. It was engineered to give you free rein to explore, shape and fine-tune your sound using a color touchscreen, hands-on controls and deep computer integration. Jam-packed with the classic Roland synthesis and sampling power we love at Musician’s Friend, it doubles as an audio interface with more-than-capable DSP in a lightweight yet robust format—making it a dream to perform and produce with.
Enhance your workflow
In addition to packing some serious synthesizing power, the FANTOM-08 is primed for any kind of performance or production workflow. With Scenes, you can effortlessly recall sounds, patterns, performance layouts, templates, settings and sections of—or even entire—songs. This is ideal whether you’re writing in the studio or performing on stage.
Add it to your setup
FANTOM-08 is many things, including a 4x32 USB audio interface—and it’s got the DSP to back it up. Boasting native touchscreen and hardware integration with Logic Pro, MainStage and Ableton Live, it’s ready to jump right into your setup and get to work. It adds the top-shelf feel of hi-res knobs, sliders and RGB performance pads to your creative workflow, with deep computer integration putting the power in your fingertips.
Sample with Roland
Cutting-edge ZEN-Core and SuperNATURAL technologies come into play in a big way on the FANTOM-08, loading it with thousands of high-quality electronic and acoustic sounds from Roland’s renowned library. If you’re a pianist, you’ll love the new SuperNATURAL pianos, with their authentic acoustic grand tone and responsiveness. The Virtual ToneWheel Organ gives you a faithful recreation of the real-deal playing experience, offering quick-fire playability and harmonic control via the touchscreen and onboard hardware. Should you choose to expand your palette down the road, you can via the Roland Cloud library.
Synthesize and sequence
FANTOM-08 lets you construct evolving passages, modular-style animated textures and sounds with intricate movement. With two LFOs per partial and four partials per tone—plus the ability to stack 16 tones—FANTOM-08 can provide up to 128 LFOs per voice. In addition to the iconic TR-REC pattern sequencer, inspired by the TR-808 and TR-909, step LFPs are available with 16 steps of beat-synced automation and 35 curve choices per step.
Express yourself with FANTOM-08
Roland thoughtfully designed FANTOM-08 to give you absolute freedom of expression. Modulation is a cinch whether you love levers and wheels or prefer external pedals. The 32-band vocoder gives you creative expression from VP-style ensemble tones and robot voices to otherworldly textures and other stimulating effects. There’s even a dedicated USB port for connecting a MIDI controller, if you opt for that accompaniment. With all the possible permutations of expression at your beck and call, the sky is the limit to your creativity with the FANTOM-08.
