The Roland FA-08 is a powerful 88-note, velocity sensitive keyboard, 16-track sequencer, onboard sampler and over 2000 preset sounds. The Roland Fantom FA-08 represents a bold new step forward for Roland - bridging the gap between live and studio keyboards that never seem to quite cater to both worlds.
The original Phantom synths were highly revered by keyboard players around the globe, with the new Fantom workstations taking it to a new level of portability. A re-designed, lightweight enclosure ensures that the FA08 is more manageable and versatile for live users.

FA-08 is the perfect solution for live players that like to work on their stage sound at home in the studio, with a hassle-free migration when playing on stage. FA-08 lets you do it all, in one portable, powerful and practical synth.

No Work, All Play
Music workstations play an important role for keyboardists in a wide range of creative activities, from live performance to song development to production in the studio. However, they can often be complicated and difficult to use to their full potential, bogging down the creative process and inhibiting the flow of ideas. In developing the FA series, Roland has completely reimagined the music workstation to provide musicians an inspiring platform that’s extremely powerful and versatile, yet simple and intuitive at the same time. With a streamlined interface and focused, practical features that maximize your creative flow, the FA series allows you to experience newfound freedom to deeply explore and develop your musical ideas with less effort than ever before.
