    Workstation synth 61 keys

    UTILIZATION

    simpler configuration than other wokstations but still too sharp, it can be simpler and more ergonomic use seen that the majority of people do.
    This says to use just keyboard (without using the audio input), it will.
    The manual is not clear at all uncommon in Roland.

    SOUNDS

    sounds are all oriented styles, but of course the modern sounds are bluffing and configurations.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Only 15 days. I like the all in one branch where his voice and keyboard playing time. That said must cling to understand the logic of the effects section! It's like a pro studio in there, it is useless for a keyboard I think.

    But hey, competition is......

  • its a great workstation

    Roland Fantom G6Publié le 09/25/11 à 21:42
    The roland fantom g 6 is extremely powerful, everyone in the industry uses this board or has used it at some point in their musical career. The price for it is pretty high, but if you look around on eBay or Craig list you can find a used one for very cheap, that’s what I did.

    UTILIZATION


    DAW like sequencer. Plug in a USB mouse and you have computer-like sequencing at your fingertips. Highly robust, reliable, accurate sequencer with 128 MIDI track capability. Unheard of. No button pressing delays like the XS.

    SOUNDS

    Buffet of extraordinary preset patches that are mix ready and can be seamlessly overdubbed together right out of the box. Roland sets up presets ready for your mixes.......

    SOUNDS

    Buffet of extraordinary preset patches that are mix ready and can be seamlessly overdubbed together right out of the box. Roland sets up presets ready for your mixes. Drum kits are banging, EQ'd just right. Pianos, organs, Rhodes, wurlies, bass (acoustic and synth), leads, pads, brass, etc etc are all AWESOME. Can not wait for new Keyboard expansion card. Incredible. No glitch LIVE mode that guarantees no delays between switching performances live in concert. Finally a company listened to us. Thank you Roland. Live mode is SO cool


    OVERALL OPINION

    Overall its great, but if you don’t need the sequencing you can always go with the fantom rack and have all of the sounds, I think the fact that it’s a workstation is what makes it so expensive, because the rack is over a grand cheaper. but still roland always comes out with great products and this one is perfect.

    The characteristics of this machine are based on substantial changes to the previous Fantom X, the main changes are:
    - New routing effects (there is a multi-effects per patch / channel MFX1/MFX2/CHORUS/REVERB of year) which allows for sounds identical mode live / studio / single. This is the main evolution in sound, and it changes many things (more or making compromises to limit head impact).
    - New interface via a mega screen (I know the biggest I've seen on a synth). All graphics are super caring, very fine and is super smooth. Everything is instantaneous unlike a PC or there is a lag time.
    - The maximum memory RAM for sampling / recording audio goes a 1GB.

    - The maximum memory RAM for sampling / recording audio goes a 1GB.
    - The backup is done by external standard flash disk (8GB works, I think even more)
    - The sequencer has been completely redone with 128 tracks midi/24 audio tracks. The sequencer is great because vraimment super simple to use.
    - The ARX extension that uses their own synthesis engine.
    - The interface / menus / file system are much better organized, everything is vraimment more intuitive.
    - The interface that can be used via a mouse

    UTILIZATION

    The happy to use because everything is intuitive, it does not have time to think about technique as one might do on a PC. We do not ask what revision of soft / driver, what OS, what dongle, why the sound card does not work, for which the VST does not start properly, etc ...

    On this machine, it only makes music, everything works, it's instantaneous, honest, simple, fast and there is no bug.

    For me the level of functionality and interface completely competes with a configuration PC. I have not felt any limitation so far.

    SOUNDS

    The sounds are the evolution of the previous series.

    In the same spirit as the FANTOM X but a big improvement has been made overall. The acoustic sounds are superb.

    However, if the use is strictly limited to the function synthe I do not think that justifies spending FANTOM FANTOM X G.

    One point to consider is the extension of the SRX series is no longer available and replaces it with the ARX. ARX ​​is an extension UIA includes the synthesis engine in the.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Overall, I am super happy with this machine.

    For 10 years (when I had my XP80) I expected the machine on which to do everything (audio, midi, synth, sampler, live, sequencer ...).

    The previous Fantom X was approaching, but the FANTOM G finally done.

    I advise vraimment, and especially to those who do not feel comfortable on the computer configuration.

  • Best board out...

    Roland Fantom G6Publié le 08/05/11 à 13:12
    The Roland Fantom G6 is the standard for production. Roland always puts out the most creative and warm sounds. Very clean, there is a port to use a mouse so its easy to navigate the screen. The G6 has 5 octaves but you can transpose if you need too. Everything on this board is well built and put together to last.


    UTILIZATION

    This board will last you for years to come, and you can upgrade with the expansion board whenever you want to. No need to purchase a new keyboard. The sounds effects are great, it has all of the basic sound effects plus more. I use this with a windows computer, I use it as a vst and it works like a charm.

    SOUNDS

    Everything with this board is easy as possible and straight forwarded, you probably wont even need to pull out the manual unless you are a beginner. Setting it up was easy, plug and play. You can browse through all of the presets easy and see everything on a bright big screen. Not like other keyboards where the screen is really small and not high quality.


    OVERALL OPINION

    Sounds are extremely realistic and the after touch and sensitivity is unmatchable . You wont find a better board, point blank period! The price is high, but you will need this to take your career to the next level. This is a solid investment that you will need to make especially your in hip hop music or jazz music. This fits that genre perfectly. This was my first Fantom, and I don’t regret my decision at all. This is the best board I have own and this board is one that is hands down one of the best on the market. Well built by a trusted company, beautiful warm classic sounds that are industry ready no matter watch genre of music your in.

    I love his touch, extensive connection (the + is the port for the mouse), over 1000 sounds all styles. Beautiful on screen with all the necessary info.

    UTILIZATION

    Very logical in its use and editing sounds. Perfect ergonomics.

    SOUNDS

    In terms of sounds there is good, really good and less good ... The G6 sounds very good for sounds like "synthetic" type pads, leads, FX, for the winds and acoustic pianos are also cons by a small notch below for the "orchestra" and the guitars. But in general the G6 is mixed very well in a mix unlike XS6 or XF6 (I own), the sounds of these machines are so "rich" and stuffed effects we find it difficult to integrate them into a song!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have owned and has a lot of synth type "workstation" and the Fantom G6 is among the best. It is a pleasure to create and play on this synth because very ergonomic and logical. Its beautiful screen also helps clear giant much editing. Its design is beautiful, certainly the most beautiful with the Ensoniq TS-10 at the time ... In addition to the sounds and grain also attach importance to the design, unlike other ;-)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I am far from having been around the machine, but I will not lie by saying he was disappointed by the set offered by the Fantom G. For several reasons:

    1) If I love and know the sound from the Roland U-20 (!), I had a JV880, then a XP60 then a Fantom Xa and now the G6, the synthesis has not really changed since the JV880 (that far anyway!) and especially since the Fantom Xa: some filters (which I find less "digital" so better than the Motif XS which has made a lightning in my set) and the step LFO. The speed of the envelopes is not his forte and he must use tricks to get a bass strikes, even if it seems a little better at this point......

The speed of the envelopes is not his forte and he must use tricks to get a bass strikes, even if it seems a little better at this point that the Xa. But in a pinch, it does not matter, I have VA for that.

    2) The samples are mixed: the guitars and acoustic sounds in general are lower than the Motif XS. There are sounds that are still toy!

    3) Roland mocked the world in 1500 saying provide patches online, but there are plenty of "copy / paste" or "subtle" changes. There are 94 (!) Piano patches, while a dozen would suffice. Paid by the user to adapt these basic sounds in his piece is not it?
    Worse, I do not know the difference between patches and some times there are 4 in a row! I do not understand this, I think the Fantom Xa offered more variety for example, synth sounds, especially with the SRX Ultimate Keyboards. I was hoping that with a 256 MB memory (thus double the Xa with its SRX) the entire set would be good and a consistent level.

    If you are looking for a set of presets and homogeneous quality, take the XS, which only the piano seems way (in terms of rest). Yamaha has solved the problem by proposing a piano sound to a much higher level (S700) to be loaded into RAM XS keyboard.

    Let us return to the GF: Update V1.50 is essential and finally offers a piano right, but yet we perceive the transitions in the layers of samples. One wonders if the problem is not the synthesis that offers "only" 4-layer stereo (it becomes difficult!), Whereas in the XS offers 8.
    I am more inclined to think that I just bought the PC3 Kurz, whose memory, however, a smaller piano conceals much more enjoyable to play because if samples appear less rich, they seem much better managed (12 layers) .

    So why keep it, you say?

    1) Apart from the acoustic piano, I do not want the hyper-realism. I do not care whether my sound is the exact copy of Wurli model 52. I prefer to make "my" sound. Guitars, sax and other sounds are interested but are secondary (phew!).
    2) For the screen considerably higher than that of Reason, which makes it easy to live, even though the ergonomics of the human-machine interface could be even better with the same hardware. The proof of the simple tabulation of values of the edition when such a screen would be talking more beautiful graphics. Despite this, the Fantom beats XS. The XF he filled the delay?
    3) For many effects and a fairly good level (from that side, he did not blush or face the XS Kurz '), but were a little frozen: who uses 16 insert effects ( the PFX) in parallel? I would rather have 8x2 as the XS, or better still a pool of 16 as the Kurz '.
    4) To his manager sequencer 128 MIDI tracks and 24 audio tracks with insert effects with 2 extra. Finally a machine that allows me to move from computer! YES!
    5) His look is a bit flashy certainly good, but a notch below the XS, a real tank (knobs, sliders, wheels, the XS inspires confidence).

    What had happened: I sold and bought ... a juno G with SRX-07 which I found on the Fantom Xa sounds I liked. Admittedly, the machine is less luxurious, but a pure sonic standpoint, the Juno G has nothing to be ashamed of the comparison. Instead, it has the advantage that it can be customized using a SRX, what more does the Fantom G.
