I couldn't live without the Fantom, it is now a foundational part of my music.

I couldn't live without the Fantom, it is now a foundational part of my music.
Having a vast array of instruments, this is the one that adds so much.
My first one died and I had it repaired a couple of times, finally bought another one and it has been sensational ever since.

UTILIZATION

Easy to use despite a somewhat daunting manual.

SOUNDS

Sounds correct on the whole, the ARX cards are a plus.

OVERALL OPINION

Keyboard 88 keys, a lot of sounds that can be set to different styles of music (for my leaving Electro)
I would put 9/10

UTILIZATION

general use is fairly simple when you have already used the Roland.
Full manual and I advise to read despite the pavement
Editing sounds and effects is easy thanks to the screen (the usefulness of a mouse is desirable)
I would put 8/10

SOUNDS

The touch is really great (for my leaving), it remains one of the only hit that I loved.
Regarding the sounds, they are suitable for different styles of music (I was the electro / house) it can be used in the studio or concert (watch the weight though)
I would put 8/10

OVERALL OPINION

I used it for around two years and I can tell you that for me is one of the best hit.
I had other models like the pattern 8 and other equivalent but I just tell you that the hit is the thing I love the most and the sounds of Bass.
Value / Price: I bought two months after its release before the price increases: excellent results!
With experience and the price at which I got I do it again this choice without hesitation!
I would put 9/10

The keyboard of 88 keys Fantom G8 is, for me, a real treat to play fast, accurate and very heavy!
Connectors and controllers available are the same as found in general on the synths in this category.
The real plus: the TV that Roland was grafted on this synth!

UTILIZATION

The gorgeous color screen and the mouse makes all functions very easy to use. Whether for editing sounds, effects routing, or for sequences we are close to ergonomics can make a software. The difference is that it does not crash (even after several hours in a row!).
The manual provides information on many things but to use it so forget getting started is easy.

SOUNDS

I use the Fantom G8 especially sequences at the moment. The sound palette is wide and varied. The sounds of acoustic and electric pianos are very good. Guitars, basses, drums and percussion are very good too. The organ sounds and strings require a little work to get to ring. The brass and winds in general (sax in particular) seem to come from another time (style JV). Extensions ARX correct this (well I hope!).
The synth sounds are rich and varied: large sheets, lead mordants and dynamic.

OVERALL OPINION

I use the Fantom G8 for over a month now and I'm delighted! I like the keyboard, the dynamics of sound, ergonomics and comfort of the real work that provide the screen and the mouse (which are not really widgets).
It lacks an effective grid editor for drum tracks. You need a computer to load SMF (??!!!!).
It also lacked the multisampling and an undo function on the sequencer but this has been corrected with the OS 1.10 comes out.
Simple, powerful, dymanique fast, it is a machine that will delight the musicians.
