I just bought a Fantom X7 and it is amazing! I also looked at the Motif and the Triton Extreme. They were all exactly the same price so that put them all on the same playing field. I already had the motif rack so I eliminated the Motif, seeing I already had those sounds. I liked the touch screen on the korg but it was a bit cryptic for my taste. It was hard to navagate as I would often get "lost" for a while. I also found the 60/60 polyphony thing wierd and the sounds were a bit harsh to my ears. I look forward to the new ver2 upgrade which ads the 8 track digital recorder to the already jam packed keyboard

acoustic sounds are the best for my taste with this keyboad, that piano is just sweet once you start playing it its hard to stop, that's when i realized that this was the keyboad that i needed, i tried motif ex, but tho be honest that machine is just too complicated to understand, it sounds good anyways. adios amigos. bye

This is a really great keyboard, been looking forward to having one, now I finally have. I also have an XP workstation, and programming the fantom is almost basically the same, with some added SRX boards, the sounds, patches, waveforms get bigger and bigger, another two SRX boards to add and I will have 1GB of sounds to play with. Right now you can update your Fantom-X to v1.03.

I am really happy with this board, even at the discount price I got it for, just over £200 less than shop retail price, just look over the net to see who is selling it cheaper and buy it.

Although roland are crap at customer support, one good thing though now, is that they have started to put downloadable PDF manuals online, should have done this ages ago, but it only applies to new products - what a pity.

That colour screen makes a big difference, same as the MC-909's screen in fact. Anyway... just buy the Fantom-X and love it.

BTW: Roland have just released the Fantom-Xa, a cut-down version of the Fantom-X6,7 & 8 with 64mb of ROM instead of 128mb ROM etc.

I must say that I love this keyboard. I don't know how it compares to the newest Triton and I do know that some sounds on it are better than the Yamaha ES series while some are not as good...But overall..this has a superb interface that makes me want to program and that is very rare. I highly recommend that you listen and try. This board connected with me and I adore it.

last piece of h/w?

i'm a pads + textures over beats sort of composer...(don't really have much for melody, harmony, and counterpoint to do). i guess i spent a half hour (on first play) trying to find a really weak preset pad...no go...even the ones i didn't like were all useable, and i liked a lot of them. thought i was commited to soft synths, but...i can almost see room for a new kb.

then i tried to create some new evolving textures from given presets...no problem: throw a bunch that already evolve together, tweak up the separation, change the control depths (keep the targets), and you're go. not as easy as atmospheres, but ...

now i'm thinking that an x6 + my laptop (running live 4.0) + midi controller (for the laptop) should about do it for a performance setup.

in the studio, a x6 + qs8 => x8 (so, all is love...)

but, if i was a rich man's son, i'd grasp the trinity: x8 + v-synth + laptop (would the x revert to being merely a, piano, in this setup?)
