NAMM saw Roland beef up their Fantom line with the introduction of the Fantom-X, the 128 voice workstation expandable up to 1GB of sounds. Three models are available, a 61-note keyboard (Fantom-X6), 76-note keyboard (Fantom-X7) or 88-note Progressive Hammer-Action Keyboard (Fantom-X8). These 128-note workstations are the first with capacity for nearly 1GB of wave data when fully expanded. Each model boasts a brand new wave ROM with amazing new sounds, room for 4 SRX expansions and up to 544MB of sample RAM???large enough to be used like a digital recorder???plus a sexy new look with an industry-first color LCD screen. Put simply, the Fantom-X Series is an entirely new breed of workstation. Powered by Roland???s new sound generator chip, the Fantom-X Series makes it possible to play expressive 4-tone Patches with 128-voice polyphony, and can be expanded to nearly 1GB of wave data???far more memory than any musical instrument on the market. The internal 128MB wave ROM is loaded with brand new sounds recorded in top studios and mixed by talented engineers like Dan Blessinger (Martinsound), resulting in a level of quality and expressive realism that is unsurpassed. Take the new 88-key split piano, for example, which utilizes over 700 samples to create the ultimate acoustic piano Patch. The sampling section is also beefed up with capacity for up to 544MB of RAM using optional DIMMs. This unprecedented amount of memory lets users record long samples in the fashion of a digital recorder with full wave editing capabilities (a new PC Card slot lets users store samples on cards with up to 1GB capacity). Between this ???linear??? recording capability and the realtime timestretch, users get total integration of audio and MIDI using the Fantom-X Series??? high-resolution sequencer. And thanks to their new color LCD screens with smart color-coded schemes, using the Fantom-X Series just got a whole lot easier on the eyes.
