    A formidable sonic arsenal

    Fortified with an arsenal of inspiring, authentic electronic, acoustic, and hybrid sounds; the powerful, versatile, and expandable FANTOM sound engine draws on decades of industry-leading Roland technology, letting you combine various synthesis and sampling technologies along with FANTOM’s onboard analog filter for new cutting-edge sounds and take advantage of new sound expansions and capabilities as they become available. FANTOM nails coveted instruments from Roland’s vaunted legacy of genre-defining synths, while blazing new synthesis frontiers. At FANTOM’s core are Roland’s custom Behavior Modeling Chips, powering the instrument with smooth, precise control, massive polyphony, and full patch remain for seamless transitions.

    Creativity without compromise

    With no confusing modes, technical limitations, or sonic compromises to derail your creative process, FANTOM-6 fuels your creativity with its fast, fluid workflow. FANTOM’s creative process facilitates and enhances the way modern musicians work by providing intuitive compositional tools, instant-recall creative environments, and deep integration with your DAW. Forget about having to remember which features work in which mode — FANTOM is always in Creative mode.

    Make the Scene

    Whenever you enter your creative zone, FANTOM is ready with custom creative spaces called Scenes that contain your sounds, clips, patterns, and performance layouts — all triggerable with a single touch. A Scene can be a complete song, a segment of a song, or merely a starting point with your sounds arranged just the way you want them. You can chain Scenes together or swap them out instantly — with no glitches or gaps.

    Updated classic pattern sequencer

    FANTOM is a self-contained, 16-part multitimbral music composition platform designed for rapid creation and fluid arrangement. You can create patterns on FANTOM in a variety of ways, including step- and real-time polyphonic sequencing or the TR-REC pattern sequencer — ideal for rhythmic parts — as on Roland’s iconic drum machines. The cornerstone of dance music is the step-sequencer, none more classic than the 16-step TR-REC found in drum machines like the TR-808, TR-909, and the TR-8S. FANTOM’s onboard TR-REC sequencer is completely updated with sub-steps for ratcheted parts, motion control for per-step automation, and support for chords.

    Clip-based sequencing

    Also at your fingertips are 16 RGB performance pads, real-time recording with piano-roll editing, and a grid for recording and launching clips. You can use any or all of these tools at any time to realize your musical goals. Build up tracks easily and quickly by arranging groups of clips. Record drums, bass lines, pads, and melodies into clips and trigger them separately or in Scenes. This is an expeditious way to compose — and perfect for triggering
