NAMM: Fantom-X Version 2
The Track Edit page in Fantom

Press release from Roland The Version 2 operation system for Fantom-X series adds eight stereo linear audio tracks to the Fantom-X’s sequencer. Meaning that you can now use any Fantom-X6, X7, or X8 to playback up to 8 stereo tracks of HD audio, making the Fantom-X a powerful live tool. Your X can be upgraded to Version 2 via the FAN-X-UP1 “Audio Track Expansion Kit.” The upgrade kit includes a CompactFlash card with installer software, PC card adaptor, plus a CD-ROM that contains Version 2 OS, an updated Fantom-X Editor, a Multisample Editor, and an S-700 file converter for Mac and PC. The eight stereo linear audio tracks all get realtime time-stretch capabilities for syncing audio to MIDI. Unlike sequence-driven samples, these new audio tracks can be played back from any point in the song, and can be synchronized perfectly with the MIDI tracks thanks to the Fantom’s realtime time-stretching. It’s also possible to output a Skip Back sample to an audio track. More information
