Roland Keyboard


A big thank you to my friends in Norway for stopping by. One friend in particular, Ballademaker, has shared his own music with us at SoundClick. He has been playing piano since he was nine years old. His influences in music are: supertramp, elton john, and billy joel, and jean michell jarre. He uses lots of equipment and knows how to put it all together in a song he has created: dx7 korg karma xp 80 roland keyboard. powermixer pmp 1000 behringer monitors is ms16 behringer midi interface romio software powertracks audio 9 laptop dell presicion m60 xp pro.

I have played a Roland Keyboard and love the Vintage sounds. The Fantom X8 (to me) has the more realistic sounding grand pianos. But I must say, I'm more comfortable playing on my Motif. for me, it's the better board. I found this great discussion on Motifator regarding Motif ES vs Fantom X

Ballademaker created many of his songs w/ a synthesizer. I agree that the manuals for the Motif workstation and Fantom X are not user friendly. It takes perseverance to digest the info and apply it to your board.

"The Fantom-X Series are the world's first "Giga-Workstation" keyboards, giving Fantom- X6 musicians nearly 1GB of wave memory when fully expanded and powerful 128-voice polyphony. The synthesis section's new waves include a gorgeous 88-key split stereo-sampled piano, plus room for 4 SRX expansions. The sampler can be upgraded to 544MB of RAM, which provides enough recording time to use it like a digital recorder. The Fantom-X Series is also the first line of workstation keyboards with a color LCD screen. Between these features and their sleek new looks, the Fantom-X Series is poised to become the workstation of choice."
