« good quality workstation but... »

Published on 04/10/12 at 15:18
The Roland Fantom x6 is a 61 key workstation that has all the bells and whistles that you will need. It probably has more than you will use! I compare this to the Yahama Motif and I feel they are alike and do the same thing. The Fantom sticks out a little more to be because of the screen and flow of the (software). It just seems more put together and easier to operate. It also has pads on the right side that you can assigned samples and such too. That is something that the motif doesn’t have.


UTILIZATION

This keyboard’s sound editing can be a bit overwhelming if you havent used it before but once you get the hang of it you will be just fine. Or you could pick up the manual and figure it all out pretty quick. The general set up is pretty easy. When it turns on it just loads everything up and you can start working right away.


SOUNDS

Sounds are great! I love the strings and brass. Some of the sounds are a little dry and thin though. that’s where I feel like the Motif wins at. The Motif sounds are much more full and thick. Also, they could have used a few more sounds that are distinct. I feel like some of these sounds are the same as other previous fantom boards. But I guess that’s what is suppose to happen.


OVERALL OPINION

Overall, a great quality board. But if you love this one check out the Motif, it will blow you away! This board cost a good dollar though so make sure you can afford it. Most all of the popular workstations cost a good amount of money so be prepared to spend your savings on them. But they will last you a very long time unless you are dropping it or getting it wet. Keep it nice and clean and it will last you a lifetime. Great board, I recommend it.
