Roland FANTOM V2.0 update brings multisampling, new effects and more

Roland FantomRoland introduced the FANTOM in 2019 as an all-in-one music production environment. Version 2 overhauls the sampling engine, introduces effects to the master section and brings automation editing to the touch screen.

FANTOM System 2.0

The update is a system update for existing FANTOM 6, 7 and 8 synthesizers – it’s not a whole new synthesizer. It’s downloadable from the Roland website and free to install.

In the previous version the sampling engine was pretty basic. All you could do was load up samples to the sample pads and trigger and loop them. In version 2 you can now sample directly to the keyboard for instant sample playing and pitching and you can stack samples up into detailed multi-sampled instruments. They are known in the system as Keyboard Samples and can be saved as part of a Scene. You can use them as new instruments or you can your samples as the basis of any oscillator/partial in a ZEN-Core tone. FANTOM contains Roland’s ZEN-Core technology as found in the Jupiter-X synthesizer and Zenology software.

TFX or Total Effects is now available on the Master section complimenting the existing compressor and EQ. TFX has 90 effects which can be applied to the master output although many are designed for individual sounds rather than running on a multi-layered master output.

Also new in version 2 is the ability to layer or split internal and external sources together as well as transpose them independently. There’s a “Microscope” view which lets you fine-tune notes in the sequencer and you can now draw and edit automation with your fingers. Oh, and you can change the touchscreen’s background – awesome.

jHudStudio jParaComp

jHudStudio jParaCompSomehow we managed to miss this free stereo compressor when it came out last year. jParaComp from jHudStudio offers independent controls for each channel, which can be linked on a per-control basis. For example, you can link the thresholds and keep the attack and release times separate. Or link the compressor controls, but use different clip drive settings for each channel for stereo effects. A solid free compressor with many useful and creative options.

jParaComp is available for Windows 7 or higher and macOS 10.7 or higher in VST, VST3 and AUformats.

Get jParaComp here

MAAT GON

MAAT GONMAAT is best known for its extremely deep, but expensive equalizer plug-ins like thEQorange and thEQblue. But their latest plug-in GON is completely free. Monitoring the phase relation between the left and right channels is crucial in mixing and mastering, and this free goniometer gets the job done with a very clean GUI and easy-to-use features. MAAT says that it’s also light on your CPU, which is great if you can’t afford to waste CPU power on metering.

GON is available for Windows 7 or higher (32/64) bit and macOS 10.8 or higher (64 bit) in AU, VST, VST3 and AAX formats.
