At the heart of the new Fantom synthesiser keyboards are a wide variety of genre-defying sounds taken from Roland’s ever-expanding library. From classic bass sounds to atmospheric pads and cinematic brasses; the sound library is packed with studio-grade sounds ready for you to use with a single touch.
Offering a comprehensive sound range from authentic acoustic instruments to cutting-edge electronic and hybrid sounds, ZEN-Core pushes the Fantom into new sonic territory. Building on the success of the Fantom workstation series, the Fantom Synthesizer Keyboard features an advanced Zen Core synth engine providing cutting-edge synthesis.

Zen-Core provides precise control over your sounds with a large amount of polyphony and full patch remain, meaning you never experience note drop out when changing scene. A scene can contain up to 16 individual tones, which you can combine for impressive splits or layered sounds. A single tone is made up of up to 4 partials, with each partial comprising a complete synth voice (with oscillator, filter, amplifier and dual LFO). This means a single scene can contain up to 64-oscillators and 128-LFO’s.
You can capture internal sounds, incorporate sound from hardware devices, DAWs and much more with the Fantom-08. You can even capture samples and send them to the RGB performance pads so you can instantly trigger each sound. You can do it all with the Fantom-0 series!
Borrowed from classic Roland drum machines, the TR-REC pattern sequencer is perfect for creating percussive loops and much more utilising both step and real-time sequencing for maximum versatility. Not only that but the onboard colour touchscreen allows you to use clip-based sequencing for instant pattern recording and triggering, providing hands-on control for you patterns.
The Fantom-0 features a comprehensive control section, comprised of a wide range of knobs, sliders and even RGB pads. You can use the sliders for controlling modulation and volume, perfect for making quick, on-the-fly changes. You can achieve everything from smooth sweeps to finer adjustments of texture and sound with the onboard controls. It also includes a dedicated synth section with high resolution (1024 step) controls for oscillator, filter and envelope, as well as buttons and pads for triggering and sequencing.
