What we say:

Features We Love:
The Best Sounds
Fantom combines decades of technology. Nailing the sound of Roland's iconic synths with their custom Behaviour Modelling Chips. Pianos and acoustic tones are realistically recreated using the now legendary V-Piano technology. New complex tones can easily be created in beautiful detail through the HD interface and controls.
Three Production Modes
Fantom recognises that different sequencers benefit different production styles. Patterns can be created by recording your performance in real time, using the 808 style TR-REC step sequencer and using a piano roll grid. Patterns can then be chained together to create songs, or split up into clips for a Live style real time performance.
Optimised For Every Performance
Fantom-8 features a beautiful fully weighted keybed with aftertouch. Menu diving is kept to a minimum thanks to a generous selection of encoders and faders. Each made to a high resolution to eliminate stepping and jittering. Finally the HD touchscreen is a dream to use, thanks to the intuitive operating system, your workflow will be effortless.
