The Fantom-G8 from Roland is a powerful and versatile 88-key workstation keyboard that offers an advanced sound engine, intuitive interface, great playability, superb connectivity, and a realistic piano feel.

The advanced sound engine, which has 256MB of wave-ROM capacity, offers hundreds of Roland's SRX-quality sounds for authentic performances. ARX slots are also provided, which accommodate two SuperNATURAL expansion boards. SuperNATURAL uses Roland's high-quality modeling technology to provide organic, natural tones.

The Fantom-G series is the first from Roland to offer their redesigned power sequencer. By using the 8.5" color LCD screen, the sequencer offers a fully-integrated audio/MIDI graphical environment with 128 tracks. A mouse can be connected to the workstation for working with computer-like ease. You can also use the versatile connectors, which include XLR/TRS combo jacks, Hi-Z, and line-level inputs, to connect condenser mics, guitars, and more.

Playing the Fantom will be a pleasure with its PHA II "Ivory Feel" keyboard with velocity and channel aftertouch. Besides the pitch bend and modulation lever, there are 4 control knobs, and 8 control sliders making it easy to create the proper soundscape.
