Bold New Sounds

Explore entirely new sonic landscapes with a brand-new 64MB-equivalent wave ROM created just for the Fantom-S88. Painstakingly sampled in world-class studios around the world, these new stereo-sampled waves are the finest building blocks ever offered in a Roland keyboard. But don't worry; you can start making music right away. Roland has already created an entirely new set of inspiring Patches and Rhythm Sets sure to fit into the music styles of today and tomorrow.

An Audio and MIDI Powerhouse

The idea behind the original Fantom was to keep the music flowing. So for the Fantom-S88, a strong emphasis was placed on the way audio and MIDI are integrated. The result is a fluid environment in which both worlds can come together as one. Audio can be sampled using the stereo analog inputs, or imported via USB, and then integrated directly as a waveform in the expressive stereo 4-Tone synth engine. Audio can also be sequenced alongside MIDI data. The Fantom-S88 will even automatically stretch your samples in real time to match any tempo!

Beyond Sampling

Instead of just adding sampling, Roland carefully thought out ways to make it even more useful in production. To start, the Fantom-S88 comes with 32MB of sampling memory, expandable to 288MB - more sampling memory than any other workstation and enough space to resample an entire song! The onboard USB port makes it easy to load .WAV/AIFF files, or export your finished song to a computer for CD burning or Internet distribution.

To make triggering samples easier, Roland added a Dynamic Pad Bank. Samples can be easily mapped to the touch-sensitive pads; the pads can even be used to play ROM sounds or RPS patterns. Another Roland innovation is Skip Back Sampling. This function continuously samples your performances so you'll never lose a great idea. It also makes for an easy way to resample any realtime knob and controller tweaks.

Streamlined Mixing

A new Mixer View screen gives the Fantom-S88 the feel of digital mixer - with intuitive graphic editing of a multitimbral Performance in one simple screen. Mix down your song using four knobs and the LCD to change track levels, panning and effects settings. Now audio and MIDI can be mixed together with the feel of a digital recording studio. Roland even makes it easy to set up your Performance using the new Layer View screen with quick graphic editing for layering and key zones. Features like these turn the Fantom-S88 from a workstation to studio.

Complete Studio Effects and Mastering

The Fantom-S88 is loaded with a complete set of pro-quality effects to take your song all the way to final mixdown. To start, you get 24-bit reverb on par with rackmount processors and professional plug-ins, plus a dedicated chorus processor that serves up warm, rich chorus and delay. Three multi-effects processors handle everything from tempo-synced delay and Lo-Fi processing to COSM Guitar Amp Modeling, Slicer, Isolator and more. Finally, a dedicated mastering processor lets you add the finishing touch with multi-band compression.

USB for Direct Sample Exchange

With onboard USB, importing samples from a PC or Mac is easier than ever. Just browse your computer's hard drive for .WAV and AIFF files, and import the sounds you want using simple drag-and-drop commands (the Fantom-S88 will appear on your computer as a hard drive). Now the audio can be used as a synth waveform or even assigned to the Dynamic Pad Bank for sequencing. Likewise, you can also export a fully mastered song to your computer for burning CDs or MP3 creation.

V-LINK Onboard Video Control

With Roland's V-LINK feature, musicians can integrate video clips with their music for a more captivating performance. Using the optional Edirol DV-7PR Digital Video Workstation (sold separately), you can trigger video clips from the Fantom-S88's sequencer or Dynamic Pad Bank. Capture your background music using Skip Back Sampling and paste it with the clip onto a single pad. Any audio/visual combination you perform can be recalled so you won't lose ideas. Never before has so much power and flexibility been offered in a workstation keyboard.

Local customers may choose to pickup their order at the store free of charge during the checkout process (click & collect). Free local delivery to Brandon, MB addresses is also available for orders over $25. 

Here's the thing... some larger/heavier items may be subject to shipping charges. Canada is a big place and shipping companies calculate their rates using "dimensional weight" meaning larger items are very expensive to ship - even if they don't weigh very much (i.e. an empty guitar case). 

We want to be completely transparent with our shipping policy, so here is a list of items that we have to charge some shipping on. (these fees usually work out to about 25%-50% of what we actually pay).

Faders Subsidized Flat Shipping Rates (within Canada)

  • 61-76 Note Keyboards : $39 + tax
  • 88 Note Pianos : $89 + tax
  • Electronic Drumsets : $49 + tax
  • Empty Guitar Case (hardshell) : $39 + tax
  • Guitars < $350 Value : $39 + tax
  • Amps 25+ watt : $49 + tax
  • Guitar & Bass Bundles : $49 + tax

If you make a purchase from one of the listed categories and choose Free Canada-Wide Shipping, we will email you a secure link to pay the shipping charge after you've made your purchase. It's super fast and super easy. 

Note: Some remote or rural locations may be subject to additional shipping charges. For example, if your delivery address is a PO Box and you order a large or heavy item then we will email you a secure payment link with a subsidized flat rate shipping charge determined by the item(s) ordered and your delivery address.
