The Roland FA-08 is a flagship music workstation for live and studio use. It's long been a dilemma that most workstations were good for studio or live applications, but never both. The new FA-08 has a built in audio interface and DAW integration for studio sessions whilst the pro quality, weighted action keyboard and 16kg weight are great for live players. All this plus a huge collection of popular Integra-7 sounds spanning a huge musical range, 16 parts with their own effects engines with 67 effect types, dedicated processors for drums, EQ, chorus and reverb, a powerful sampler and easy to use sequencer. Everything you could possibly need!

Roland have completely reimagined the workstation to maximise creativity and versatility. A 16 track sequencer with non stop loop recording makes it easy to build songs quickly. You can export your sequencer tracks to an SDHC card as a complete stereo mix or as a multitrack audio or MIDI data for use in your DAW.
The FA-08 workstation is light and mobile with an 88 note Ivory Feel-G keyboard that provides for premium performance and easy transportation, weighing only 16kg. Connect a mic, guitar or stereo line level device to the FA-08, which includes a high-speed USB audio interface, great for touring and playing live.
The FA-08 contains over 2000 sounds from the flagship INTEGRA-7 sound module, including SuperNATURAL synth and acoustic tones and drums giving you ultimate freedom. You can add even more tones via internal wave sound expansion slots or download sounds for free from Roland's Axial sound library.
The FA-08's onboard sampler is based on the SP-40SX and features 16 pads x 4 banks and direct recording/playback via SDHC cards. A multitude of studio quality effects including 16 independent MFX engines, six COMP+EQ processors for drums, unique TFX (total effects) and global EQ, chorus and reverb mean you can polish your sounds completely. You can tweak tones, effects and external MIDI devices in real time with six user assignable Sound Modify knobs.
This Roland workstation has Guitar/Mic and Line input jacks for performing, sampling and DAW audio recording. A dedicated input reverb provides ambience for both performing and recording. USB ports allow for sound expansion data, updates and audio/MIDI interfacing with a computer. MIDI communication with an iPad is also possible using Apple's iPad Camera Connection Kit.
With onboard templates for Logic, Cubase and Sonar, the FA-08 will fit right into your existing DAW setup, eliminating the need to spend time learning another workflow. With the touch of a button you can instantly configure the workstation for use with your DAW via USB thanks to the streamlined interface with a large colour LCD screen. D-Beam, Rhythm Pattern, Arpeggiator and Chord Memory functions are all available tools to expand your creative palette.
The on board 16-track sequencer is always recording, therefore will capture your ideas as they happen without risk of missing a take. Once the creative juices are flowing you can add finishing touches on board or export your sound to your DAW. Enjoy fast, flexible and frustration free workflow with the Roland FA-08 Music Workstation.
