Value For Money : Excellent
Well I do not come back too much on the characteristics of the Bécanne.
polyphony is very broad but beware of the patches that use four basic sounds (yes it reduces by four the number keys at the same time) ..
Comprehensive connectivity: USB, midi audio spdif ....
Compared to the pattern, it is a true workstation ....

UTILIZATION

The choice of sounds is very simple and if the screen is a bit small it does not detract from the ease of use of the machine.
I have not really had time to really create something ...

SOUNDS

I try to do mainly from the New Wave and pop ...
To have had a reason (non-es) in the hand a year ago, I can say that the sounds of acoustic pattern is a little better .. (A little more punch and grain), but if we look a little one soon realizes that the sounds of the Motif are good if you stay mode patch (thanks to the effects ...) but what a disappointment when it is sets mode song (sounds seem at once very flat ....

In the Fantom XR is not, of course, there are slightly less powerful and realistic than the pattern, but when removing the effects, the sound does not flatten completely ....
and what is synthetic sounds, the sounds of plants fantom sound royally ...

OVERALL OPINION

I did not long ago and I am already won ....

the main interest of the Fantom Xr is the synthetic sounds and if it is FX s'acquité 300 euros for compensation through the SRX ... These sound cards have very specialized or very sharp ... The Fantom XR can swallow 6 (but hey 6X300 = 1800 Euros! is more than the price of the bike ...)
I will opt for a map certainly general and that of the string (royale. ....)

So a very good value for money, it retains the possibility of sample was a player that sequence do not cause racks currently ..

A great synth complementary pattern undoubtedly ...
