Roland Fantom FA-76

The FA-76 is the first synthesizer to bear the Fantom name and it has the same sound set as the Roland XV-5080. It was followed by the Fantom-S, Fantom-X, and Fantom-G series. It is a ROM-based synthesizer and lacks the sampling capabilities of the models that followed.

The 3.5" floppy drive can store up to 99 songs with a total of 120,000 notes on a 1.44 MB 2HD floppy or 60,000 notes on a 720 kB 2DD floppy.

Other features include a D-beam controller, General MIDI Level 2 compatibility, and 24-bit digital outputs.

The Fantom can be expanded with one SR-JV80 expansion board and two SRX expansion boards.
