    Hi all,

    Well straight after work I drove up to Burnley to pick up the Roland Fantom X8 Keyboard that I bought from ebay! It's freakin' brill!!! I love it!!!!

    It's got LOADS of patches from the old Jupiter series of keyboard that made the 80s what it was LOL!!! Even has a special Brass section patch called 'Jump' which is basically the synth sound from Van Halen's Jump. Other patches include those all to familiar sounds from bands such as Human League, Duran Duran, Gary Numan etc etc etc! Bloody great! And the normal instrument/orchestra patches...amazing! The best orchestra patch is one called 'Heros' and it sounds like the typical Star Wars/Superman type John Williams sound! The piano patches are amazing too! In fact the whole thing is great!

    I must have been nuts to consider blowing £2500 on the Fantom G...for less then £1000 the X is more than enough for my needs and is a proper gigging keyboard!

    Have attached some photos of the Fantom X
