Licht und Schatten
P aus HH, 22.11.2019
Abgesehen davon, dass man sich etwas vera... fühlt, wenn das Gerät kurz nach dem Kauf um 500€ reduziert wird, hat es softwareseitig noch so einige Schwächen, die hoffentlich mit einem Update behoben werden. Weiterhin ist die Bedienung per Touchscreen tendenziell unausgereift und bockig, sodass ich den Fantom 8 bereits einmal tauschen musste. Das Austauschgerät funktioniert besser, allerdings um Längen nicht so zuverlässig, wie man es von einem iPad o.Ä. gewohnt ist. Die Natursounds (Ausnahme Piano Engine) sind enttäuschend und bieten kaum mehr Authentizität als Klassische JV/XV-Klangerzeuger. Der einzige Grund für mich den Fantom zu behalten sind die aufgrund der Stimmgewalt brachialen Soundwände (Synth), die m.E. nahezu konkurrenzlos sind.

Pas mal, mais il manque un truc
Fynn13, 03.02.2020
L'utilisation est pas mal, beaucoup de possibilité.

La prise en main est un peu dur au départ, mais une fois qu'on a compris le concept de scène tout devient plus simple.
Pour expliquer un peu, la scène regroupe les 16 pistes avec les différents patterns ( enregistrer soit en direct, TR-Rec "mode boîte à rythme" ou en programmant les sons dessus) un peu comme sur Abelton.
Par scène on peut programmer un "song". Pour faire ça, on regroupe certains pattern en section (A,B,C, Verse1,Chorus,Bridge...) et après on sélection le nombre de fois et la succession des différents sections.

Pour les Sons le gros point fort c'est la création de sons. Soit on utilise des sample ou on a un simulateur de synthé très complet.
Mais, beaucoup de preset doivent être modifier pour valoir le coup, voir être évité.
Tout ce qui est Guitar, strings... les instruments réelle sont assez mauvais pour le prix. Les pianos acoustique laissent à désirer, plus de choix, un Steinway, un Yamaha, Bösendorfer bien simulé serait plus que la bienvenu.
Sinon tous les sons électronique sont excellent.

Petite note à part, le Motion pad est une bonne idée. Mais je n'arrive pas à en tirer autant avantage que je le voudrais.
La version de base à quelques problème, mais que les Updates sont assez simple à installer et corriger des choses sur la version de base.

Colds, 15.12.2020
Per anni ho utilizzato prevalentemente sintetizzatori. Poi sono passato all'uso di software plug-in pilotati da master keyboards. Era tempo di tornare all'hardware. Fantom 8 offre infinite possibilità, che aumentano ad ogni aggiornamento di sistema. Ottimi materiali costruttivi, buona comprensibilità del sistema operativo, anche se non è così indispensabile cercare di capire da subito cosa c'è "sotto al cofano" perché la maggior parte di ciò che serve per le attività di sound design si trova fisicamente sulla plancia di controllo.
Tastiera pianistica, tasti in legno, peso e risposta al tocco ottimi.
Campionatore interno, Pads assegnabili e utilizzabili, volendo, come smart controller, il sequencer a patterns (clips) è buono e migliorato con ultimi aggiornamenti, touch screen impeccabile. Buona integrazione anche con sistemi DAWS (soprattutto Logic e MainStage).
Al momento ho trovato un solo vero "difetto": le gestione delle divisioni ritmiche (click, sequencer, ...) è banalmente limitata al 4/4 e 3/4. Non è possibile impostare altre time signature e non è possibile avere varie divisioni all'interno della stessa song... Davvero limitante. Si spera in aggiornamenti futuri.
