What we say:

Here at guitarguitar, we absolutely LOVE the Roland FA range! The amount of power at your fingertips is mouthwatering, especially when you consider how good those sounds are! There are a large amount of SuperNATURAL sounds on board here along with hundreds of others ranging from orchestral to piano, percussion, vintage synth leads, pads, ethnic instruments...the list does go on and on.

This is a workstation so as you can imagine, there is a powerful sequencer on here as well as a Live Set mode which allows you to practically create orchestras on the hoof! There is an unprecedented level of details available for building sounds if you want that but if you don't, there's also a good few handfuls of realtime controls for you to grab and adjust as you play. The 61 synth action keys feel comfortable and respond well to any velocity-sensitive sounds you may have programmed in (it's easy!)

There is also a Sampler section with a collection of pads on the far right for launching one-shots or assigning to all manner of other tasks. It's important to note how inviting and accessible the FA06 is: despite it's power it's easy to just dial up famous Roland tones and play away as if you're Jean Michel Jarre one moment and Brian Eno the next. In fact, you can be whoever you want to be or, better still: be yourself in as kaleidoscopic a way as you can! This technology allows you that and more.

Specification

Roland FA Series Workstations
  • Two models featuring easy to transport lightweight design: 88-note Ivory Feel-G Keyboard (FA-08), 61-note Synth action keyboard (FA-06)
  • New music workstation designed to maximize your creative flow. Featuring intuitive, streamlined interface with large color LCD
  • Over 2000 sounds from the flagship INTEGRA-7 sound module, including SuperNATURAL synth and acoustic tones and drums

  • Onboard sampler based on the SP-404SX features 16 pads x 4 banks and direct recording/playback via SDHC cards
If you use a workstation to make music, you’ll recognise the dilemma. Studio keyboards don’t cut it live, and live keyboards don’t get on with studio gear, so each instrument solves only half of your problems. The new FA-06 workstation makes the problems disappear; studio heads will love the built-in audio interface and DAW integration, and live players will appreciate the pro-quality keyboard and 5.7kg weight. And whichever camp you’re in, you’ll definitely love the huge collection of sounds, taken from the popular Integra-7 module and spanning the entire musical spectrum. Each of the 16 parts has its own effects engine, each with 67 effect types, on top of dedicated processors for drums, EQ, chorus and reverb. Add a powerful sampler and easy to use sequencer and you’ve got all the tools of the trade - ready to make music wherever you are.

Awesome workstation. Sold all my keyboards, analogue gear and recording set up for this one keyboard. So glad I did. I used to lose interest by the time I got everything powered up now I'm able to play without fuss. Is easy to learn within a few hours how to start recording songs and I'm happy to take the time getting to know and master this workstation. Inspired purchase!

Good product, and Roland service was excellent in sending me the free gig bag offer. It was sent within a day or two.
