Roland have said it’s a platform so expect there to be more engines in future including EP modelling and SNS acoustic sounds. Has been discussed on Facebook with a Roland rep

Roland has always been the best for synth strings, Synth brass and pads and the "real" brass are not bad.... It's still a workstation, after 4/5 minutes, I was already a bit overwhelmed by the explanations compared to a a Stage 2/3.... But yes, it seems to be easier than the Kronos....

:shock: :D

Really? Have you actually read the specs? I am confident that this Fantom will not only have multisampling in the next new months but more features that will make it even better than it looks right now. Nord has a great sound, but is not flexible and cannot layer sounds enough.


Yes! I read the specs. I love Roland BTW, but Fantom is still without multisampling. I know my Nord Stage 2 is not flexible as my Juno G, but i have more than one keyboard because they are different.
Fantom looks very nice, and all the connections on the back, wow, are gorgeous.

Has anyone made the move to the fantom ? Feedback to share ? I myself considering it but I am scared to miss the simplicity of my NS3C...
On the other hand, the synth section is very appealing..
