Overview

The Roland Fantom-G6 Workstation is a dream keyboard instrument that redefines the boundaries of playability and creativity. Advanced sound engine, revolutionary ARX SuperNATURAL expansion bay, large-sized color LCD, powerful new audio/MIDI sequencer, first-class "Ivory Feel" weighted keys and more make the Fantom-G6 a keyboard to contend with.

Advanced Sound Engine

Driven by a powerful new audio processor, the Roland Fantom-G6 provides new sonic depth and versatility. With twice the wave-ROM capacity of its predecessor, the Fantom G6 contains a treasure trove of Roland's world-famous SRX-quality sounds. But what really sets the Fantom-G6 apart is its new 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-G6 provides ARX slots that accommodate two SuperNATURAL expansion boards. SuperNATURAL is Roland's unique behavior-modeling technology that enables a new level of 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 new life and expression into 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. Other convenient features include combo XLR and TRS connector, phantom power for condenser mics, Hi-Z input for guitar and bass, and line input.

Luxurious Extra-Wide LCD

One look and touch and you'll know that the Fantom-G 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-G is loaded with a state-of-the-art effects engine, with multi-effects available for each Fantom-G 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.

DO NOT BUY

By Wes

from Oregon

Comments about Roland Fantom-G6 Workstation Keyboard:

I WILL NEVER BUY A ROLAND PRODUCT AGAIN. THIS IS THE 2nd KEYBOARD I HAVE GONE THROUGH SINCE I BOUGHT IT BRAND NEW 5 MONTHS AGO. FROZE 4 TIMES. I TOOK IT TO A ROLAND SHOP TO GET IT FIXED, TOOK IT HOME AND IT DID THE SAME THING A WEEK LATER. PIECE OF JUNK. NOW I CANT RETURN IT AND AM OUT A BUNCH OF MONEY. LOST VALUABLE MUSIC IN THE PROCESS ALSO. DO NOT BUY. YOU ARE RISKING MONEY IF YOU DO.

Great onboard Display

By Music_man

from Baton Rouge

Comments about Roland Fantom-G6 Workstation Keyboard:

I bought the G^ took it home and played around with it for 7 days, before I took it back, Don't get me wrong this is a nice Keyboard, and 24 tracks of audio as well as 128 midi tracks, is a major plus. Fast learning curve, and nice sounds. I did not like the feel of the pads, yeah I know its brand new they will be still a little, these pads were very hard and had a terrible feel. The board is very wide, so I had a problem seeing everything on the screen, unless I leaned over the keys. Not the best sampler, my Roland Mv8000 is much easier. I had a problem with the price as well thats why I returned it and bought a used Fantom X6, and saved 1300.00 dollars. The ARX cards are almost twice as much as the SRX and only has room for 2 cards and the X8 has room for 4 cards.

Perfect all around

By Vinnie

from Chicago IL

Comments about Roland Fantom-G6 Workstation Keyboard:

I bought this system about a week after it came out. For as much as this workstation can do it is very easy to use and get around from menu to menu. The sounds are perfect and the fantom has a wide range of them to choose from so no matter what one could want to play it has them. I have played with almost all the leading keybords from the motif xs to the korg M3 and the fantom to me stands above them all. The sequencer is better then any other i have tryed on a workstation. The only down side which is very small for what it is would be i wish the G7 and G6 would have the same keys that the G8 has only semi weighted. Not a big problem like i said but something i wish they would have put on all models. Other then that its all thumbs up for me and i would suggest this product to anyone looking for the future of workstations to look at the fantom G's

It is Fairly...

By ProtoCal aka. Dj Cal

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about Roland Fantom-G6 Workstation Keyboard:

Pretty Friggin nice compared to using a computer to sequence a track. The Interface cant get any easier, I had a few problems with it when I got it but I downloaded the update and everything is grand, this is a close as you will get to working on an open labs product because it simplifies rather than multiplies your duties and makes music alot more fun to make. Its very durable, I move it around without a case, its almost like handles built into the endbells. Great Buy, Every sound u need is here, and not bad pricing at all. 5/5.
