Roland announces the FG Connects Live project 24/03/10
Roland has used te platform of the show to announce the new FG Connects Live project. Made exclusively for the Fantom-G Series Workstations, they tell us that this free download will emphasize the powerful live performance potential of the Fantom-G, adding new rhythm patterns, patches and live sets, and creating a new world of flexibility and versatility with new Motion Phrases. Here's all the details from the press release...
Designed with contemporary pop, hip-hop, and dance musicians in mind, the new FG Connects Live project adds hundreds of unique tempo-synced effects phrases to create instant motion to any sound. Using the Fantom-G's 16 dynamic pads, players can now experiment with adding combinations of filter effects, panning, cutoff, and gating to their sounds. This gives performers of all kinds infinite possibilities to inspire remixing and sound manipulation on the stage and in the studio.
With FG Connects Live, these unique Motion Phrases are preset in over 50 RPS sets, which are organized in many new Live Sets, and can be recalled instantly in the Fantom-G's Live Mode. These RPS sets can also store samples, rhythm patterns, backing tracks, or entire full songs. Combining these elements with tempo-synced Motion Phrases adds a new exciting element to the vast live performance experience that the Fantom-G workstations are known for by players around the world.
The FG Connects project also includes:
Hundreds of new patches, including new piano, wind and orchestral sounds
New contemporary rhythm pattern sets and kits
New arpeggiation phrases
Unique RPS motion phrases
New Live Sets focusing on electronic pop, R&B, hip-hop, and dance sounds
