I am more than satisfied with the features of the Fantom-S!!! Where can I start...I could talk about everything from the Sequencer to the Velocity Sensitive Pads, but I'll comment on the most innovative feature of them all, which is the Continuous Sampler. At my studio we "play" around alot, and the have been many times when I can't remember what I just the sample playback feature is a Godsend!!! OH...I forgot about the USB capability! Maybe that's the most innovative thing about the Fantom. The fact that you can drag and drop files from the computer to the keyboard is sickening!!!!

Price paid



The Fantom is easy to start with right out the box. But in order to know what's really going on, and capture all of it...I really suggest checking out the manual. If only for reference every now and then, reading the manual and not strictly playing everything by ear will help you to understand how the Fantom "thinks" and operates. Overall the user interface is very friendly for anyone who understands the basic makeup of workstations/synths.


The overall sound quality is superior! Especially the guitars, and synth sounds. Roland always does a great job on creating warm and realistic sounds. I have only had this board for a week, but I really can't complain about any of the sounds. I've worked with several workstations, and the factory drum sounds are some of the best that I've heard. The drumkits are very nicely laid out.(Of course if you want the cutting-edge percussion...well that's where sampling comes in) OH YEAH......did I mention the onboard effects??? The Fantom even comes with mastering effects including compression and eq!!!!


Being that I've only had it for a week...and the fact that I don't plan on doing hardly any live gigs with my board kinda makes this category non-applicable for me...BUT The craftsmanship is incredible....pretty solid/heavy feels very sturdy....not so delicate like the Triton.

This is the best thing that I've ever bought in my life!!! At least musically anyway. If I had to give everything else up(Godforbid), my PC, software,mixer, speakers, mics, processors,etc. I would definitely keep the Fantom and start over with everything else!!!! It really is the heart and soul of my studio!
