Roland Fantom-0 Synthesizer Keyboards Roland has introduced the Fantom-0 series of synthesizer keyboards for performers , producers , and music creators . The Fantom-06 , Fantom-07 , and Fantom-08 models combine the sonic power and fluid workflow of the top-of-the-line , previously-released Fantom series in light , streamlined instruments that are ideal for both studio and high-level stage performances .
Roland ’ s reimagined Fantom , launched in 2019 , is known for its advanced sound technologies and unique creative workflow .
