Product Description

The Roland FANTOM-08 Synthesizer Keyboard brings your creative world together, combining the sonic power and fluid workflow of the top-of-the-line FANTOM series in a streamlined instrument that goes everywhere your inspiration takes you. Play and produce with Roland’s best sounds and unleash your musical vision with a color touchscreen, hands-on controls, and deep computer integration derived from the flagship models.

YOUR MUSICAL EVERYTHING

FANTOM-08 has everything you need to create and perform at the highest level. And with its interactive design and expansive I/O, it blends into every workflow with ease.

EXTRAORDINARY SOUNDS

FANTOM-08 includes thousands of professional sounds from Roland’s immense, trendsetting library, with further expansion available through Roland Cloud. Create with synthesizers and rhythm sounds that have defined entire musical genres. Build organic compositions with pianos and other acoustic instruments. Or shape sounds of the future with a deep array of modern synthesis tools.

INSPIRING PLAYABILITY

FANTOM-08 feels fantastic under your fingers with an expressive 88-note keyboard with weighted action and loads of high-res controls.

BUILD SONGS IN A FLASH

Designed for non-stop music creation, FANTOM-08 lets you shape sounds and make music without interrupting the flow. With the hands-on knobs and sliders, color touchscreen, quick sampling features, and clip-based sequencer, every session is inspiring, productive, and fun.

YOUR CREATIVE HUB

FANTOM-08 slides seamlessly into modern production setups with a built-in 4x32 USB audio interface, while native integration with Logic Pro, MainStage, and Ableton Live lets you interact with the software using the touchscreen and hardware controls. Going further, you can freely combine soft synths with onboard sounds and interface with your favorite MIDI hardware via the dedicated MIDI output.

MAKE MUSIC EVERYWHERE

FANTOM-08 is easy to carry from your home studio setup to rehearsal rooms and performance stages. It weighs significantly less than most other professional 88-note keyboards with weighted action, thanks to a molded body design that’s sleek, attractive, and ultra-rugged.

PLAY AND PRODUCE WITH ROLAND’S BEST

Equipped with Roland’s most innovative technologies, FANTOM-08 puts a huge selection of electronic and acoustic sounds at your command. And with a growing range of expansion options from Roland Cloud, you’ll never run out of creative fuel.

NEXT-GENERATION SYNTHESIS

Explore the influential sounds of Roland’s storied past and craft the sounds of tomorrow with the ZEN-Core Synthesis System, Roland's most advanced synth engine to date.

SUPERNATURAL POWER

With Roland’s SuperNATURAL technology, you can play nearly any acoustic instrument imaginable with unparalleled sound quality and authentic articulations and response.

A GRAND EXPERIENCE

FANTOM-08’s all-new SuperNATURAL pianos play and respond just like their acoustic counterparts, and you have a range of onboard tools to customize them for your style and touch.

ORGANIC ORGAN

Evolved from the famous VK organ series, the Virtual ToneWheel engine faithfully emulates the sound-generating process of a real tone wheel organ, backed by quick-fire playability and direct control with the touchscreen, sliders, and knobs.

DEEP SAMPLING

Using FANTOM-08’s intuitive sampling tools, you can easily expand and personalize your musical palette by capturing internal sounds, hardware devices, DAW tracks, and more. Capture directly to the pads for triggering or the keyboard for instant pitched sounds. Or build detailed multisamples to create new ZEN-Core tones.

EXPAND YOUR VISION

With Roland Cloud, you can dive even deeper into the historic and ever-evolving world of Roland synthesizers. Model Expansions let you infuse FANTOM-08 with the authentic sounds and unique characteristics of the JUPITER-8, JUNO-106, and other vintage icons. And with the growing selection of Wave Expansions, Sound Packs, Sample Packs, and more, you’ll always keep your music sounding fresh. To get started, you can download 15 Wave Expansions and 10 Sound Packs at no charge from Roland Cloud with your FANTOM-08 purchase.

NO ROADBLOCKS JUST PURE CREATION

FANTOM-08 supports your music every step of the way with a smooth, rapid workflow that’s completely free of confusing modes and technical frustration. Immensely powerful yet easy to use, FANTOM-08 enables continuous creation with fluid composition tools, instantly recallable setups, deep computer integration, and more.

MAKE A SCENE

With custom creative spaces called Scenes, you can store sounds, patterns, performance layouts, templates, and more and recall them with a single touch. A Scene can also be an entire song or section of a song, and they can be chained together and switched seamlessly with no gaps or glitches.

SOUND THAT MOVES

FANTOM-08 makes it easy to create long evolving passages, modular-style animated textures, and sounds with deeply intricate movement. You have two LFOs per partial and four partials per tone—and since you can stack 16 tones, that’s a staggering 128 LFOs per voice! Step LFOs are also available with 16 steps of beat-synced automation and 35 curve choices per step.

FROM SPARK TO FIRE

Different musical genres need diverse production styles and specialized tools. You can capture music in a variety of ways with FANTOM-08, from real-time and step sequencing to the famous TR-REC pattern sequencer inspired by iconic Roland drum machines like the TR-808 and TR-909.

INSTANT CONTROL

FANTOM-08 lets you realize musical ideas as quickly as they come. The color touchscreen provides instant interactive control, and the hi-res knobs deliver organic, ultra-detailed response. There’s also a dedicated synthesizer section with oscillator, filter, and envelope controls, plus buttons and pads for sequencing, triggering, and more.

MAXIMUM EXPRESSION

Some players like levers or wheels, while others prefer external pedals. With FANTOM-08, you can use any of them—or all of them. And there’s even a dedicated USB device port to extend your workflow with your favorite USB MIDI controller.

GET VOCAL

Connect a mic to the rear-panel input and sing in the studio or on stage with high-quality processing from FANTOM-08’s wide-ranging effects. Or fire up the 32-band stereo vocoder and use the expressive power of your voice to create classic VP-style ensemble tones, robot voices, otherworldly textures, and more.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
