FG Connects Live for Fantom-G Series

Roland Corporation announced that the new FG Connects Live project is now available on the Roland website.

As part of the Version 1.50 Update for the Fantom-G Series Workstations, this free download is designed to emphasize the live performance potential of the Fantom-G, adding new rhythm patterns, patches and live sets.

The FG Connects Live project also includes:
  • Hundreds of new patches, including new piano, wind and orchestral sounds
  • New contemporary rhythm pattern sets and kits
  • New arpeggiation phrases
  • RPS motion phrases
  • New Live Sets focusing on electronic pop, R&B, hip-hop, and dance sounds

Designed with contemporary pop, hip-hop, and dance musicians in mind, the new FG Connects Live project is designed to add hundreds of 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, unique Motion Phrases are preset in over 50 RPS sets, which are organized in many new Live Sets, and can be recalled in the Fantom-G‘s Live Mode. These RPS sets can also store samples, rhythm patterns, backing tracks, or full songs. Combining these elements with tempo-synced Motion Phrases adds a new element to the live performance experience.

Along with FG Connects Live, the Version 1.50 update includes an enhanced file utility function for the Fantom-G sharing content between projects.
