Updating my studio with Roland FANTOM Workstation Synthesizer

Angel and the BEAST

My post on Roland FANTOM - Roland FANTOM Flagship Workstation Synthesizer Keyboard

Roland's way of putting together panels on synthesizers is logical, intuitive and easy to work with. All the controls are in the right places for performance ability. The controls are programmable and assignable for anything we want - offering extensive control over what we are doing and providing an incredibly flexible platform for sound design, studio work and live performance....

My article on Roland FANTOM - Updating my studio with Roland Fantom Workstation

Top Reasons to Buy the Roland Fantom! | Overview

4 partials per tone
Each partial has its own oscillator, filter, amplifier, envelopes, effects, 2 LFOs...
16 tones per scene (16 layered instruments simultaneously)

=> Each scene can have up to 64 oscillators and 128 LFOs!
(it has 4 chips to process and do all that heavy lifting without glitching or crackling - one chip dedicated entirely to V-Piano engine)

128 Scenes x 4 Banks => 512 scenes total

NOTE: Synthesizers have a meter reading showing when it is maxing out on memory. Well, Roland eliminated the meter from Fantom saying that it will never have the issue of maxing out on resources.

2GB internal memory to store our samples and tones.

iPad Pro Buying Guide

Confused whether to go for 11" or 12.9" iPad Pro?

I bought both these sizes in 2018, used them for over a month and evaluated their usabilities. I wrote a detailed article comparing both editions here -

Hope this helps...

What do you guys think and what are your experiences with these sizes?


PS: Apple seems to be working on a 12" iPad Pro this year. If this is real, more work for developers again optimizing their apps -

  • Welcome, Intro, Help & Rules

    Hey, there!

    Welcome aboard MobileMusic Forums and the community. Here, we ask/answer and discuss about music, apps and hardware (devices, gear and accessories) on various platforms and also chit-chat, showcase our creations and Chat live (really!).

    My name is Shekar Reddy and I'm the Administrator of this site. I go by the pseudonym, "MobileMusic" and I have an Artist channel on YouTube with the same name (linked in the signature below).

    We take pride in doing what makes us happy and gives us immense satisfaction - offering very high quality content coming from a passionate and vibrant community.

    This site is best viewed in Google Chrome browser on a desktop/laptop or a tablet.


    Please make sure you read our Site Terms & Rules (also linked in the Footer menu).


    You can find our Privacy Policy linked in the Footer menu.

    We have zero tolerance for spam. All spammers WILL be reported to Anti-Spam agencies including your email, IP address, etc. and you will NOT be able to register on many other online forums - FOREVER. Keep in mind - this administrative action is PERMANENT and cannot be undone!


    Please post a new message in this Introductions forum introducing yourself to the members and see for yourself how much positive difference it makes among the community.


    Remember to complete your Profile and customize these sections (such as your Timezone, etc) to your liking -
    Timezone is defaulted to [GMT] Western Europe (London) during registration. If this is not set by you to your local timezone in your Account settings after registration, date and time values on content here may show some offset. For instance, if you live in Chicago, you are 6 hours behind GMT but all posts show as posted 6 hours out into the future.

    Also check out the My Profile page (accessible from the User dynamic dropdown menu on the top after you login) where you can change these from its various tabs -
    • Edit Avatar - set your Profile photo
    • ACTIVITIES tab > Post Activity messages

    • ABOUT tab > Post your Status messages

    For attaching/posting regular files/images, you can hot-link/embed them from Google Image Search, Google Drive, DropBox,,, other online images, etc. and right-click, copy image and paste into the editor while posting (very simple and easy). Coping an image and pasting into the editor hot-links the image from the remote site.

    If you are using the Image popup from the toolbar, paste the image URL into the popup and uncheck the "Retrieve remote file and reference locally" checkbox so the file gets hot-linked.

    Feel free to embed videos liberally, wherever necessary.


    There is a plethora of interesting data on our Homepage to peek into from time-to-time -
    • Site Explorer
    • Newsletter
    • Daily Dose
    • Latest Groups Topics
    • Groups Trending
    • Latest Forum Topics
    • Forums Trending
    • Recent Blog Posts
    • Recent Articles
    • Top Active Users
    • (Your) Friends
    • Today's Birthdays
    • Upcoming Events
    • Calendar
    • What's Going On?
    • Statistics
    You could send birthday greetings to those users in Today's Birthday. Birthdays are set to be shown (without age) only of those users who added their Date of Birth in their Account. If you are concerned about storing your real birth year, note that you can specify and override precisely in your Account what to display/hide about your date of birth. Here are the display options you can choose from the dropdown -
    • Display Age and Full Date of Birth
    • Display Age
    • Display only Day and Month of Birth (this is all that is need to compute Today's Birthdays)
    • Hide Age and Date of Birth


    We have a dozen forums for various topics and platforms. Check out the Forums page to see which ones can be used appropriately for what kind of discussions. Forums are public and there is no need for a user to join them to post.


    Groups are public or private micro-Forums that YOU create and manage. How cool is that! You can communicate with its members in a focussed manner using Groups. You can even create multiple groups for various group categories! Users may need to join a group before they can post based on how you configure their permissions.

    NOTE: For song tutorials, song requests and song discussions, please surf to Groups (micro-Forums) that have tutorials and discussions on various music genres.


    Chat could be as popular as the vibrant Forums feature! With one-on-one and group-chat, nothing should stop you from doing what you want to do. Chat away... all day - to your heart's content - like there is no tomorrow! You can check other members' online status from Who's Online or Member List submenus under Forum menu and initiate a chat with them right from those pages by clicking the Chat icon next to each member. Get to know each other, make new friends, bond with others and keep in touch...

    You can also access Chat from the Messages dropdown in the header > click Chat and it opens a new small Chat window as desired (on desktop/laptop) as opposed to a full screen tab window from the Top menu.


    Blogs are personal. You create a Blog and add blog entries to it frequently. You can also create multiple blogs for various topics and keep their blog entries separate to niche them. No one can write "your" blog except commenting on them. You can add blog entries every day, every hour or as frequently as you wish. Blogging is addictive. Getting bored? Just blog away... rant away... whatever comes to your mind... For instance, you could repurpose your YouTube content videos by including them in your blog posts here, which builds more credibility and more SEO ranking from this relevant, authority site!


    Articles are global in nature but are still associated with you as their author. Anyone can write an article. Articles offer much more control with advanced options for SEO, Meta tags, Category, Publish Date, various Display options, etc


    Forums, Groups, Blogs and Articles can have Comments and Likes from others and others can Subscribe to them (follow their author). Users can Subscribe to other users too - from their Profile page. Your loyal subscribers would keep you busy asking for more.

    RSS Feeds

    RSS feeds allow you to aggregate and consume content from various websites in a single place. RSS feeds are made available all over the site pages using RSS icons and you can subscribe to them using an app like NetNewsWire or RSS client (eg: Microsoft Outlook, etc) - copy the link from an RSS icon and paste into the app/client. These RSS feeds are in addition to the on-site Subscribe options (Subscribe buttons) that allow you to subscribe to a forum, topic, blog, article, group, member, etc.


    Polls are set to have up to 50 options. We guess that is an ample number of choices for say - while voting on our favorite synth apps. Also, you are allowed to change your vote after you rate it (unlike other sites where once you rate, you are not allowed to change it). It's an online, digital poll - why not?


    There are 4 menus on this site -
    • User-specific dynamic dropdown menu in the Header (right)
    • Top menu below the Header (left)
    • Themes & Languages dropdown menus in the Footer (left)
    • Help, Contact, Privacy, Terms and other action menus in the Footer (right)


    There are a whopping 18 beautiful and colorful Themes in the footer menu this site offers and you must try them out. Remember, Themes dropdown is dynamic and becomes visible and accessible only after you login, in order to remember your preference and restore it next time you login. Once you log out, the site switches back to Default theme (which is my creation after spending several days on it, by the way). When you log back in, it restores your last preferred theme seamlessly. If you were using a non-Default theme but the browser switched you to Default theme, it means you got logged out. Simply login with "Remember Me" checked.

    The Dark theme is really stealth with classy, shiny gold / copper fonts - dark, warm and so easy on the eyes. The Black Red theme has some cool condensed fonts and looks like a real newspaper style. Each theme is unique and you could try one (or more) a day - for variety! Getting bored? Blog away... or just play with the Themes


    There are 4 languages - accessible from the Footer menu (left) -
    • English
    • Spanish
    • French
    • German
    A good reason to start private Groups for, say - Spanish, French, etc. Note that only the site layout data (menus, labels, etc) is translated into the chosen language - the actual content is in whatever languages the users posted in.


    These titles are automatically displayed under your profile at each milestone -
    • Junior Member => 0 posts
    • Member => 100 posts
    • Senior Member => 500 posts
    • Rock Star => 2,500 posts
    • Super Star => 10,000 posts


    If you create a Signature, remember to set it to Show Signatures on Posts on the same Account page.

    The intelligent editor keeps auto-saving as you draft your posting every 30 seconds so you don't lose your content if you accidentally close the window or surf to another link or the browser crashes or something. When you go back to it next time, the editor will alert you to Restore/Discard the previously saved Draft.

    Widgets on the side panels on various pages are collapsible. Their collapsed state is remembered across page-loads and also across different pages.

    QR Codes are added to all pages dynamically so you could scan it with your mobile device to quickly visit that page on your mobile later. You can ask Siri to scan it for you or use your device's Camera or a QR Code app (links provided on all pages).

    Tag Cloud is added to all pages (use tags wherever necessary so the Tag Cloud gets populated with most accurate data frequency).

    Statistics shows Topics, Posts, Total Members and Active Member counts.

    Announcements forum is meant for Moderators to post. You can only comment on those posts.

    Check out our extensive Help section for FAQ and more. We encourage you to give this section, a read.


    Help the community to keep it clean - if you see anything spammy or inappropriate, do not hesitate to Flag and Report such posts and we'll take it from there. The most notorious spam on forums is from small businesses hiring SEO firms and bots to post blogs, articles and links to their business for search-engine ranking. If you see an irrelevant, non-music related blog, article, forum post, link, etc (eg: a Plumbing company or Cleaning firm posting about their business here - don't be surprised, it happens all the time) - please flag it and report it. Community-based moderation kicks ass.


    Go to your Message Center at least once a week and go through each folder and delete/dismiss any obsolete Sent/Received Messages, Notifications, Moderation, Flag Reports, Permanently Delete/Remove items from Trash/Deleted Items, etc and keep it minimal from time-to-time. The best approach is to get rid of it right after you read it when it is still fresh in your mind what it is about so you don’t have to read it again to refresh your mind - if it is not required anymore - so your Message Center is neat and manageable and also saves your time.


    Feel free to share any posts to your other social-media accounts - right from the posting pages.


    If you have any suggestions, let me know in the Comments below or post them in Suggestions & Feedback forum.
