Its a fantastic keyboard, but no good organ sounds, as far as patches are to be set for performance use, xp60 is much better, knobs are cheap. you feel you are using a casio,the pads could have been used to select patches, remaining features are cool,i just purchased fantom x7.

first, there's a lot of whiny, complaining regarding the Fantom. The Fantom just kicks any synth/workstation's a**. I didn't get past the first back of presets before I fell in lust with this beast. For ANYONE with a milligram of creativity, the expectations are endless. The accordian sounds are hot. I would never say that about any synth or sampler for that matter. The synth sounds are killer.....no other synth comes close. The strings and pianos are phenomenal. The basses boom and the brasses are bangin. If you're doing r&b, soul, urban, or hiphop......you would have to have ZERO talent not to make hot music. THIS IS THE BEST KEYBOARD I EVER USED.....EVER. IT DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THE FANTOM x.

Comparing to a Korg Triton Le: 1. WEAK arp! Triton lets you set gate, velocity, offset for each of 48 beats. Fantom lets you set velocity only for 32 beats. Gate & timing are global. Sucks! But the chord function almost makes up for it. Plus the Triton only has a lousy 15 user arps. 2. Room for only 64 user combos/layers on Fantom. Arp can only be used on ONE layer patch! -- as opposed to Triton's 8. 3. To get into the arp, rhythm & chord screens, you have to press and hold a fukking SHIFT key! This is VERY inconvenient, especially if you're playing a guitar: you need TWO HANDS! Other than the above, the Fantom blows away the triton. But the above are important! One more thing: The Triton is jam packed with mostly slimy urban, er, "dance" sounds. You'd think that White music was dead! The Fantom actually RESPECTS people who play guitars and basses -- in other words, actual musical instruments -- and who are looking for some rock/pop beats. (Not that there aren't plenty of the other, mind you.) There are DOZENS of very decent piano, guitar, electric guitar and bass sounds on the Fantom. (And lots of room to write over the useless sax (gag) and brass sounds.) Decent strings too, if that matters to you.
