Small precision: THIS IS the same sound engine as the X6 (same quality) Although there have less sound!

Just click here-a versatile workstation 5 octaves
In-wheel controller it is pitch-modulation, two types of pedals are connected: Hold (sustain) and the control of volume.Le D-beam, an IR laser assignable knobs 4 (default cutoff, R resonance, Attak and release) and of course volume gnral
-Connection for 2 pedals (dja cit, noon DIN (in-out-thru), USB, PC CARD (for memory, audio input for the sampler, for example (L mono / mic and R, level) and finally output the PHONO jack for headphones and 4 outputs (mono and Stereo)

I do not know how he did his yen but as a package, they can be more crs, all styles, because there ditables biensur.en Reverb, chorus, distortion (3), rotary, EQ, compressor etc. ...
We can conect to the PC
128-voice polyphony
I put 9 because he did not like the X6 color screens and dynamic pads

UTILIZATION

-The setup is simple when you know it, but after one week (if you have the manual in french) we dbrouille
-The edition of the sounds is complicated, you need quite a bone up the book, when the effect is quite simple
-The manual provides silent in English for me, but strong Luckily it can be found in french on the french site of ROLAND, otherwise it is clear.

SOUNDS

-Noise level, we have a wide choice, the piano sounds are exlents (piano pad and E-piano), with all the sounds I think about my foot shoe (for a sample based in a rock band)
Ralistes-sounds are piano, violin, guitar exlent, but the top brass are not to my taste
-Effects not to say they are perfect but not so editable
-The keyboard is dynamic and I have nothing else to say, except that it is a touching piano synth and not (come on X8)
"I love the piano Pad, sound FX ambience are great,''Music Box''sounds exlent; kit drums also sounds less like brass

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for three weeks, this synth is versatile, great for a base sample in my rock band, we approach the possibility of almost YAMAHA MOTIF ES but for a lower cost! I, who have for years jou on a keyboard arranger GEM (1992) I see all the Difference! The value for money is a vrment case, because with all the possibilities we are not dcu I think, against the memory is rstreinte, but you can add the RAM
I remake that choice without hsit is all I need! not asked for more except maybe a little more memory for samples
The X6 (or x8) are better now because there have the color display and more opportunities but it has vrment key CHARACTERISTICS them and then he vrment cheaper!

UTILIZATION

Super intuitive synth this for all the basic function I did not need the manual, everything is well thought good To create sounds, sampling the other I'm fine having to open the pav . The manual air well.

SOUNDS

The sound suits me perfectly, there's gots all, I love acoustic pianos, electric, and roland pads made in the battery pack are effective, less like the brass, but hey I do use them and then if something does not please you or the SRX slot sampler and you're jou.
The effects are really good too.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for one week and I'm over the moon, all this wearing of fingers is too small, no more mouse and catch up and head to the music, I tried a x6 and I do not think such a cart MRIT price avex xa.Rapport the top quality price, I wait for the hsit juno G CHARACTERISTICS very close, but appears if you look over the prs juno 4 audio tracks but will not know the grate multisamples or patterns, two key things for me more than the AudioTrack. The XA of the bomb finally for me.

The features are very good for the price. This is a great synth to start personally in my case I have some time to understand all the possibilities of Fantom XA.

UTILIZATION

This synth is very easy to use from the time you master it. It took me a year to master and almost completely as a beginner I think it's a great synth for its price. on the other hand I think there are a few too many sounds that are useless musically. The French manual is not very clear but it is very comprehensive.

SOUNDS

With this synth is very easy to make techno, hip hop etc. ... especially with the rhythms. Against by the sounds I use most are the ones I created with the waveforms mals that are used in...…

OVERALL OPINION

It's been almost a year and a half that I have this synth and I find it very good in the end for what I can do with. It really taught me how to make the well-known musicians to create songs or pieces tehnos. If it again I think I will buy this synth for beginners, but only because I think the Fantom X6 should have better sound card and then I will buy with supreme dance.

not knowing what to play guitar synth Deplus bcp I had to buy a roland exr-5s (+ / - 500 euros) a year before and xa sounds clearly better but I regret not having enough to try synth This now changed and I lost money but at least I am now happy!! negative opinion

Can be found quickly enough good ideas of compounds, but it is not obvious what the polyphony synth just to justify its range!!
