Everything is well!
Asanka, 30.10.2018
The best decision I ever made. FA06 is the best keyboard you could buy in a moderate budget where you want to rule the live gigs.

01)Extremely lightweight in transporting.
02)Elegant Super Natural tones
03)Great accessibility
04)Easy Sampling and list goes on

However, disadvantages so far I experienced
01)No volume control for Samplers - Sample volume all the time set for 127 and louder than the keyboard tones

02)The part view does not reset when you move from Split, Duel or studio mode to single mode (if the Split mode is with a different octave or with an effect when you quite from the split mode, still the octave change and effect will be there on single mode)

Also, it would have been great if it had more expansion slots :) just a suggestion.

overall, it is a workstation with a good value for your investment.

Allrounder mit gewöhnungsbedürftiger Tastatur
nosid, 04.12.2020
Ich habe den FA-07 seit ungefähr 18 Monaten. Das Gerät ist leicht, und das Plastikgehäuse fühlt sich vergleichsweise wertig an. Die Bedienung am Gerät ist ordentlich. Allerdings wünschte ich, es gäbe eine gute iPad-App.

Die SuperNatural-Acoustic and SuperNatural-Synth Sounds klingen wesentlich besser (realistischer und voller) als die PCMS-Sounds. Für mich ein deutlicher Mehrwert gegenüber Rolands rein-PCMS-basierten Synths. Die A-Piano, E-Piano und Organ-Sounds sind im Band-Kontext absolut brauchbar, Solo-Streicher und Bläser-Sounds dagegen weniger.

Leider hat die SuperNatural-Synth-Engine weniger Funktionen als die PCMS-Engine (z.B. nur ein statt zwei LFOs per Partial, keine Mod/Control-Matrix), so dass sie die PCMS-Engine nicht vollständig ersetzen kann. Nach meinem Verständnis erfolgt das erst mit Rolands ZEN-Core-Engine.

Tastatur ist ein sehr subjektives Thema. Ich habe mich für die Version mit 76 Tasten entschieden, ohne es zuvor ausprobiert zu haben. Die Tastatur sieht hochwertig aus und ist gut verarbeitet. Allerdings bin ich bisher damit nicht glücklich geworden, weil sie ordentlich Kraftaufwand erfordert, und weil sich weiße and schwarze Tasten nicht ausgewogen anfühlen (insbesondere bei Nutzung der vollen Länge der Tasten). Im direkten Vergleich fühlt sich die Tastatur meines 20 Jahre alten Roland XP-30 eine Klasse besser an.

Bezüglich Tastatur würde ich empfehlen, das Gerät zunächst irgendwo auszuprobieren. Abgesehen davon kann ich es sehr empfehlen für den Preis.

Uso o FA07 para concerto-live , tem todas as características para um teclista que queira explorar uma workstation da nova geração embora não tenha todas as funções previamente apresentadas pela roland ( serie X e G) . Gostei particularmente de ter uma placa de audio já incutida e a possibilidade da interação in-live com uma DAW.

Gutes Keyboard
EliasRöbl, 12.07.2018
Ich hab das Keyboard nun schon ca ein halbes Jahr und bin sehr zufrieden. Alle Features sind leicht und wie beschrieben ohne Einschränkungen nutzbar. Das Keyboard ist sehr gut für Workstation Einsteiger, aber auf für Erfahrenere Nutzer eine gute Wahl.
Die Sounds sind sehr umfassend und wenn man genug Zeit investiert kann man sich durch die vielen Sounds durchtasten und mit Bearbeitung und mehrere Layer sehr professionelle und eindrucksvolle Sounds machen.
Ein sehr nützliches Feature(besonders für Einsteiger) sind die Rythmic Pattern die dir den Beat für verschiedenste Musikstile gibt.

Was einem vielleicht fehlt sind gewichtete Tasten, was durch die gute Anschlagsdynamik zwar gemildert wird, aber noch nicht ersetzt. Außerdem hat das Roland FA-07 keine LEDs,dh. wenn du in einem schwach beleuchtetem Raum spielst, siehst du entsprechend wenig.

Alles in allem bin ich sehr zufrieden und würde jemanden der in die Welt der Music Work Station eintaucht dieses Gerät auf jeden Fall empfehlen.
