Any new workstation with color display, the most beautiful effect.
With 2 bones audio track expansion (8 audio track).
For the rest, "News" or Roland.fr

UTILIZATION

Note that a machine for a while (synth, sequencer, floppy sentences, and multitrack)
The system is very stable and very fast processor!!
Level architecture, the FX is a disconcerting ease of use ... Everything has been designed and redesigned
for the user to compound, rather than try and create and configure.
We apreciated also velocity-sensitive pads, which can also be used to trigger samples, sound loops and even phrases (as in groovebox). Roland also allowed to use his last for the different reminds you the most use. (Practice)
Also very convenient to add the fact a text file (wordpad windows style) at your song and put your notes.
Other function ... the skip back sampling.Avec sound crazy, I play the chorus that kills but, unfortunately, my sequencer is on stop. Goodbye my zic ... Oh no! I press Skip Back Sampling, and my chorus is saved as a sample ... and this of course, after typing the pads or keys!! (Giant)
I could go on for hours but the list is too long ....

SOUNDS

Roland user for almost 10 years I have had the opportunity to play with a lot of synth Brand
SON and I know Roland and forth in and through!
But for my part I am very disappointed, on this one the, for the brand! Explanation:

For me that was beginning to have sounds "old fashioned" (if there is way) I said I sell everything and goes FX6 but, after a month of utlisation I realize that sounds not changed they sound without probably better because of polyphony (the mix general) of the new sound engine and the matrix control but too few new sounds ...

For a user who is not long Roland dates, although the sounds are nickels and I come back
not affect other comparative assessment published on Audiofanzine ... (FX6 vs Reason Vs TritonEx)

OVERALL OPINION

Of course the FX6 is an excellent choice for ease of use, which remains the main criterion
In terms of sounds, I think other former users roland, may be disappointed if their criteria
main renewal with new sounds that bring real qque something new to their
.................... creations I say is true shame is that Roland should also think its loyal customers!
Finally, and short, I think the rest FX6 very good in many areas and it addresses a new clientele, composers, film music, rock, jazz, hip-hop etc ... ..................
For those fond of the electro go your way and you turn instead to a Triton extreme ....
