Roland’s Fantom-X Series now includes the Fantom-X Audio Track Expansion operation system, which adds eight stereo linear audio tracks to the Fantom-X’s sequencer.
Any Fantom-X6, X7 or X8 can be upgraded to version 2 via the FAN-X-UP1 Audio Track Expansion Kit. The upgrade kit includes a CompactFlash card with installer software, PC card adaptor and a CD-ROM that contains V. 2 OS, an updated Fantom-X Editor, a Multisample Editor and an S-700 file converter for Mac and PC.
The platform has added eight stereo linear audio tracks to the mix. Unlike sequence-driven samples, these new audio tracks can be played back from any point in the song, and can be synchronized perfectly with the MIDI tracks thanks to the Fantom’s real time time-stretching. The user may also output a Skip Back sample to an audio track.
