Keyboard Synthesizers: Roland Corporation has released FG Connects Live – a free download designed to enhance the live performance potential of the Fantom-G, adding new rhythm patterns, patches and live sets, and versatility with new Motion Phrases.
Designed with contemporary pop, hip-hop, and dance musicians in mind, the new FG Connects Live project adds hundreds of unique tempo-synced effects phrases to create instant motion to any sound. Using the Fantom-G’s 16 dynamic pads, players can now experiment with adding combinations of filter effects, panning, cutoff, and gating to their sounds.
With FG Connects Live, these unique Motion Phrases are preset in over 50 RPS sets, which are organized in many new Live Sets, and can be recalled instantly in the Fantom-G’s Live Mode. These RPS sets can also store samples, rhythm patterns, backing tracks, or entire full songs.
The FG Connects project also includes:
- Hundreds of new patches, including new piano, wind and orchestral sounds
- New contemporary rhythm pattern sets and kits
- New arpeggiation phrases
- Unique RPS motion phrases
- New Live Sets focusing on electronic pop, R&B, hip-hop, and dance sounds
