Roland Updates FANTOM Synthesizer Series


Roland has announced a free Version 2.5 update for owners of the FANTOM 6, 7, and 8 synthesizers. Here's the details in their own words...

Released in 2019, the versatile FANTOM series has become the leading keyboard workstation solution for both stage performers and studio musicians, thanks to the deep, expandable power of the ZEN-Core Synthesis System and regular updates that bring new sounds, features, and refinements to the platform. The user-installable Version 2.5 update adds classic organ sound and playability with Roland's Virtual ToneWheel engine, plus extended DAW control with integrated support for the popular Ableton Live music production software.     

Evolved from the famous Roland VK organ series, FANTOM's new Virtual ToneWheel engine faithfully emulates the sound-generating process of a real tone wheel organ and includes several tone wheel types with adjustable percussion, key click, leakage, and more. There's also a lush rotary effect with variable speed, brake control, and tube distortion characteristics. FANTOM's touchscreen, sliders, knobs, and keyboard action are automatically configured to complete the authentic organ experience, providing hands-on sound control and vintage quick-fire playability.

FANTOM now features official integration with Ableton Live, expanding on the previously included support for Apple's Logic Pro X, GarageBand, and MainStage software platforms. Via FANTOM's high-resolution touchscreen, it's possible to view and launch clips in Live's Session view, access Live's mixer parameters, and trigger transport functions. And with FANTOM's knobs, sliders, and pads, users can operate Macro Controls, control mix levels, play Drum Racks, and more.

Pricing and Availability:
