Roland Fantom X8

The Fantom-X Series is the flagship of the Roland workstation family, offering musicians nearly 1GB of wave memory when fully expanded, and 128-voice performance. At the top of the vast soundset is Roland's finest 88-key split stereo-sampled piano, with each note individually sampled at multiple velocities. In addition, the Fantom-X provides room for four SRX expansion boards, so users can customize their soundsets to their specific needs and stylistic preferences.

The Fantom-X Series is the first line of workstation keyboards with a color LCD screen. Combined with an inviting icon-driven user interface, the Fantom-X has been globally heralded as the most powerful-yet-friendly workstation on the market.
