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.
