Roland Fantom Series

Roland Fantom 8 Workstation

  • Roland is continuously updating and improving Roland Fantom, and they’ve already released numerous updates adding new features. Check out the added features from the V2.50 Update, making the Fantom even powerful than before.
  • The Roland Fantom comes with a 2-year warranty.

Overview By GAK

While all 3 variants of the Roland Fantom share the same controls, inputs/outputs and internals, the Fantom is available in 3 key configurations. The Fantom 6 has 61-semi weighted synth-action keys with aftertouch, while the Fantom 7 has 76 of the same style.

The Fantom 8 gives you 88-fully weighted wooden piano hammer action keys courtesy of Roland’s PHA-50 keyboard action. This hybrid wood action has stabilising pins to ensure there is no unwanted side-to-side lateral movement, along with graduated and individually weighted keys. The action has both ebony and ivory feel, along with escapement, which enables you to play at softer dynamics mirroring the mechanism on an acoustic Grand Piano. This is the same piano action found in the Roland flagship digital piano, the GP-607. The PHA-50 can also be found on their flagship stage piano, the RD-2000.

To complement the exceptional piano-like action on the Roland Fantom 8 features a dedicated V-Piano engine that is built upon the Zen-Core technology. As well as having an authentic piano feel, the V-Piano technology allows the Fantom to completely model all the characteristics of an acoustic grand piano in detail, which is impossible to capture in samples, meaning it behaves like an acoustic piano too. V-Piano Modelling allows you to customise every element of the piano sound to your heart’s desire with unlimited polyphony, giving players the best piano experience in a workstation. For the best piano playing experience, partner with the Roland DP 10 Piano Style Sustain Pedal (sold separately).

The Fantom 8 fits perfect into the Roland SC-G88W3 Semi-rigid 88-Note Keyboard Case with Wheels and sits on the Roland KS-10Z Keyboard Z Stand.
