Roland Fantom 08 Synthesizer Keyboard XX Frame Package
At the heart of the new Fantom synthesizer keyboard are a wide variety of genre-defying sounds taken from Roland’s ever-expanding library. From classic bass sounds to atmospheric pads and cinematic brasses; the sound library is jam-packed with studio-grade sounds ready for you to use with a single touch. You can build organic compositions using acoustic instruments such as the SuperNATURAL pianos or take it to the next level with a deep array of modern synthesis tools.
The beating heart of the Fantom is the powerful and versatile ZEN-Core sound engine. Powered by four custom Behaviour Modelling Chips, it's one of Roland’s most flexible and expandable sound engines to date; the product of years of research and development. Offering a comprehensive sound range from authentic acoustic instru0ments to cutting-edge electronic and hybrid sounds, ZEN-Core pushes the Fantom into new sonic territory. Building on the success of the Fantom workstation series, the Fantom Synthesizer Keyboard features an advanced Zen Core synth engine providing cutting-edge synthesis.
Zen-Core provides smooth and precise control over your sounds with a large amount of polyphony and full patch remain, meaning you never experience note drop out when changing scene. A scene can contain up to 16 individual tones, which you can combine for impressive splits or layered sounds. A single tone is made up of up to 4 partials, with each partial comprising a complete synth voice (with oscillator, filter, amplifier and dual LFO). This means a single scene can contain up to 64-oscillators and 128-LFO’s. Finish off your tone with a choice of over 90 premium quality DSP effects including the famous Roland Juno-106 Chorus circuit.
For players who demand acoustic realism, Roland has equipped the Fantom with the latest version of their highly regarded SuperNATURAL sounds. Using a combination of sampling and acoustic behaviour-modelling, SuperNATURAL offers lush strings, detailed woodwind, powerful brass sounds and more, all presented in 24bit 48khz resolution for the very first time. No matter what the genre, Fantom provides sounds to inspire. At the heart of the Fantom-08 is the PHA-4 standard keyboard featuring Escapement and Ivory Feel technology to achieve a truly natural and authentic feel - emulating the touch of of a classic grand piano.
The new and improved SuperNATURAL pianos respond just like their acoustic counterparts, utilising advanced modelling techniques to achieve a truly natural feel and sound. It also features a range of onboard tools which you can customise to suit your personal playing style. As well as providing authentic acoustic pianos, the Fantom synthesizer keyboard also features a virtual ToneWheel engine which is designed to emulate the sound of classic VK organs. Faithfully emulated for modern users, the ToneWheel engine uses the same processes as a real tonewheel organ, utilising quick-fire playability and direct control via the touchscreen, sliders and knobs.
Expand your sonic palette using Fantom’s onboards sampling tools. You can capture internal sounds, incorporate sound from hardware devices, DAWs and much more. You can even capture samples and send them to the RGB performance pads so you can instantly trigger each sound. From chopping up breaks to J-Dilla-esque melodic chops, you can do it all with the Fantom.
Borrowed from classic Roland drum machines, the TR-REC pattern sequencer is perfect for creating percussive loops and much more utilising both step and real-time sequencing for maximum versatility. Not only that but the onboard colour touchscreen allows you to use clip-based sequencing for instant pattern recording and triggering, providing hands-on control for your patterns.
The Fantom features a comprehensive control section, comprised of a wide range of knobs, sliders and even RGB pads. You can use the sliders for controlling modulation and volume, perfect for making quick, on-the-fly changes. You can achieve everything from smooth sweeps to finer adjustments of texture and sound with the onboard controls. It also includes a dedicated synth section with high resolution (1024 step) controls for oscillator, filter and envelope, as well as buttons and pads for triggering and sequencing.
