About Delivery

The Roland Fantom-08 88-Key Synthesiser Keyboard is a powerful synth that features everything you need to create and perform at the highest professional level. The FANTOM-0 series shares a great many sounds and features as their flagship Fantom models, but presents them in a more compact, portable format.

The ZEN-Core Synthesis System is Roland’s most-advanced synth engine to date and the Fantom-08 pushes it as far as it can go. Combined with the natural keyboard response created by Roland’s SuperNATURAL tech, ZEN-Core has no trouble recreating the authentic nuances and articulations of almost any acoustic instrument you can think of.

The Fantom-08 comes fully equipped with thousands of Roland’s amazing high-quality sounds in its onboard library and offers the possibility of further expansion via Roland Cloud. With a variety of instantly recognisable classics and a selection of groundbreaking new sounds, this synth presents a huge amount of sonic options for you to explore. The Fantom-08’s PHA-4 standard keyboard - with escapement and ivory feel - feels amazingly authentic and offers a great amount of articulation to support the phenomenal depth present in its sounds. This makes the most of the Fantom-08’s amazingly accurate piano sounds and helps them to respond just like their acoustic counterparts. You also have access to an array of adjustable parameters that enable you to customise the response of your sounds to fit your playing style and touch.

The modern artist requires as much versatility from their instrument in a live setting as they do in the studio, and Roland has ensured that the Fantom-08 offers amazingly intuitive creative tools that can be used on the fly. A variety of knobs, pads and sliders - and of course, an easy to use colour touchscreen - provides access to the Fantom-08’s fantastic sampling tools, sequencers, and are able to control all kinds of adjustable parameters.

In addition to a wide array of performance tools, the modern artist also requires versatility from a technical standpoint. The Fantom-08 has been designed to communicate perfectly with many modern production setups. It features a built-in 4x32 USB audio interface and has onboard controls that are integrated with Logic Pro, MainStage, and Ableton Live software, so you can interact fluidly between instrument and studio suite. 

The Fantom-08 also excels in its sampling capabilities. Via a collection of intuitive tools, you can easily personalise your sound using samples captured from your hardware devices, DAW tracks, and more. You can even build detailed multi-samples to create new ZEN-Core tones - you’re only limited by your imagination. A rear-panel mic input allows you to get vocal too. You can use the Fantom-08’s high-quality processing power to add effects to your voice or utilise its 32-band stereo vocoder to produce otherworldly sounds.

By using custom spaces called Scenes, you can store all manner of custom-created sounds, patterns, performance layouts, templates, and more. Content in a Scene can range from entire songs or mere sections of songs that can be recalled at the touch of a button, or chained together with the ability to be switched in real-time with no gaps or glitches.

Users of the Fantom-08 will gain access to Roland Cloud, which enables you to dive deep into the sounds of amazing Roland synthesisers from past and present. You can gain access to the authentic sounds and unique characteristics of the JUPITER-8, JUNO-106, and other classic vintage models and use the Cloud to stay up-to-date with Roland’s ever-growing collection of Wave Expansions, Sound Packs, Sample Packs, and more. To get started, Roland is offering 15 Wave Expansions and 10 Sound Packs for you to download for free as soon as you have registered the purchase of your new Fantom-08.
