The Fantom-XR brings powerful sampling and synthesis to a convenient 1U rack module. This affordable module sets a new standard for expandability.

The internal wave ROM includes expressive new Patches like an 88-key split piano, plus room for six SRX expansions. Full-blown user sampling is also supported, along with .WAV/AIFF compatibility for loading samples via USB. And with PC Card storage, the Fantom-XR makes backing up data quick and easy.

  • 1U rackmount synthesizer/sampler with capacity for over 1GB of sounds
  • 128-voice polyphony and expressive 4-tone stereo multiplex synthesis
  • Flexible user sampling with .WAV/AIFF compatibility
  • Wave ROM expandable to 512MB via 6 optional SRX boards
  • 16MB sample memory expandable to 528MB with optional DIMMs
  • 3 MFX processors, plus separate reverb, chorus and mastering effects
  • USB port and optional PC Card storage with up to 1GB capacity
  • 2 stereo (4 mono) analog outputs, stereo analog input, plus S/PDIF digital I/O

New 128-Voice Sound Engine

Like the Fantom-X keyboards, the Fantom-XR module is based on Roland’s powerful new sound generator chip. This chip delivers maximum audio processing performance at a great price— including an expressive stereo 4-tone synthesis engine with 128-voice polyphony. The internal wave ROM includes quality-focused waveforms—like Roland’s amazing 88-key split piano (a multi-stage velocity-switched stereo sampled piano), lively new string ensembles, fat drum sounds and more—recorded using world-class studios and renowned engineers. The internal wave ROM can be expanded up to 512MB using six optional SRX-Series expansions. No other module boasts this kind of sound library!

User Sampling and More

Out of the box, the Fantom-XR ships with a 16MB sample memory for loading .WAV/AIFF files via USB or for recording your own sounds via the analog and digital inputs. A host of sample editing tools—including a Wave Edit screen, Chop function and real time timestretching—give you plenty of control over your samples. And by adding optional DIMM memory, you can load up to 528MB of audio into the Fantom-XR. Combined with a fully expanded wave ROM, that’s over 1GB of sounds! Editor software will be bundled for detailed Patch editing and backing up data is easy using optional PC Cards (up to 1GB) or via USB.

Made for Sequencing

Even without an internal sequencer, the Fantom-XR’s 128 voices and capacity for over 1GB of waveforms make it the perfect module for use with a computer or hardware sequencer. In fact, it boasts the same tight integration of audio and MIDI as its keyboard cousins, but with greater expandability. Just MIDI it up to your sequencer of choice, and let the Fantom-XR automatically sync up all your audio loops to tempo using a high-quality realtime timestretching algorithm. You can even record linear audio phrases and play them back from RAM like a digital recorder!

Studio-Quality Effects and Mastering Tools

The Fantom-XR boasts the same powerful effects processing found in the Fantom-X keyboards—including three multi-effects processors that can be freely configured, plus separate reverb and chorus processors. The multi-effects are extremely powerful with algorithms ranging from COSM® Guitar Amp Modeling and Lo-Fi processing to tempo-synced delay, Slicer, Isolator and more. A dedicated Mastering processor serves up tools like multi-band compression to give your music a tighter, punchier sound.

The Simplicity of USB

The onboard USB port can be used as a USB-MIDI interface—perfect for sequencing the Fantom-XR from a computer. USB also makes for a great way to transfer audio files to and from the module—just connect a cable, then drag and drop away. The Fantom-XR can import and export .WAV and AIFF files, making it compatible with a wide variety of sounds available on CD-ROM and via the Internet. Give your music a serious sonic upgrade with the Fantom-XR.

PC/Mac editor/librarian software inluded

The Fantom-XR comes bundled with Fantom-X Editor/Librarian software for Mac and PC. Using a simple USB connection, you can edit all the Patch parameters in the Fantom-XR. You can also create Performance combinations with splits and layers - all from your computer via an intuitive graphic interface. The Librarian feature allows you to sort and manage all your sounds quickly and easily.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
