    No Work, All Play
    In developing the FA series, Roland has completely reimagined the music workstation to provide musicians an inspiring platform that’s extremely powerful and versatile, yet simple and intuitive at the same time. With a streamlined interface and focused, practical features that maximize your creative flow, the FA-06 allows you to experience newfound freedom to deeply explore and develop your musical ideas with less effort.

    Perform and Record with Roland’s Very Best Sounds
    Filled with over 2000 tones inherited from the INTEGRA-7, Roland’s flagship pro sound module, the FA-06 delivers in this area and then some. All of the INTEGRA-7’s SuperNATURAL synth and XV-5080 PCM tones are onboard, plus an essential collection of ultra-expressive SuperNATURAL acoustic tones that includes pianos, organs, drums, bass, strings, and more. The FA-06’s sound engine is fully compatible with the large, growing collection of INTEGRA-7 synth tones available as free downloads from Roland’s Axial sound library site.

    Capture Ideas and Create Songs Without Interruption
    The FA-06’s intuitive 16-track sequencer has been designed to let you capture your inspiration as it happens—recording is always just a simple button press away. In a flash, you can build a full arrangement with the FA-06’s huge array of sounds, and with continuous recording in loop mode, you’re able to fill up all 16 tracks without ever stopping!

    In addition to real-time capture, step recording is also possible, and you have complete control to edit and mix your tracks as you go and save your song to an SDHC card as a stereo audio file. It’s also possible to export your tracks as individual WAV audio files and/or MIDI data for further development in your DAW, making the FA-06 a powerful sketchpad for capturing initial sparks that will form the basis for your full-scale computer music productions.

    Seamless Hardware Integration with Your DAW
    The Roland FA-06 transitions into your computer-based music production world with ease. A simple press of the dedicated DAW Control button instantly sets up the FA-06 to communicate with your computer via USB, letting you use the keyboard and knobs to send MIDI data to your DAW for playing software synths, controlling plug-in effects, and more.

    The FA-06 also includes control maps for popular DAWs, providing a quick and easy setup to control transport functions and more in your specific software. You can even use the FA-06 as a USB audio interface to record a variety of different sources directly into your DAW, including a mic, guitar, or stereo line level device connected to the FA-06’s rear-panel input jacks. Sound output is also supported, allowing you to monitor the DAW output through the stereo output and headphones jacks on the FA-06.

    Instant-Access Performance Sampler Onboard
    Based on Roland’s mega-popular SP-404SX, the sampler in the FA series keyboard features fun, fast, hands-on operation and sampling/playback via SDHC cards. You can play audio samples directly from the 16 pads on the FA-06 panel, making it easy to incorporate loops, backing tracks, one-shots, vocal phrases, sound FX, and more. Thanks to SDHC flash memory, your samples load instantly, and you can use the four pad banks and clipboard function to rearrange your samples.

    It’s super-easy to sample the FA-06 synth’s own sounds or external sources via the Mic/Guitar and Line inputs, and you can even play WAV, AIFF, or MP3 samples that you’ve transferred from your computer. A variety of editing features allow you to tweak your samples to taste, including quick adjustment of playback position and level. The pads can also be used for functions such as muting parts, entering numeric values in the display, and more.

    Enhance Your Sounds with a Wide Range Effects
    With its large selection of pro effects, the FA-06 provides numerous options for polishing your sounds and sequencer tracks to studio-level perfection. Independent MFX engines are available for all 16 parts of a Studio Set. Each MFX engine contains 67 different effects types to choose from, with an additional option of a vocoder when MFX are used with Part 1.

    Six separate COMP+EQ processors are dedicated for individual drum sounds, while global EQ, chorus, and reverb are on tap to add a finishing touch to any of your parts as needed. With the unique TFX, you can process the entire output of the FA-06 with dramatic effects such as DJ FX Looper, Isolator, and many others. All the effects can be tweaked in real time via the Sound Modify knobs, making it simple to enhance your keyboard playing, sampling, and sequencer tracks with dynamic sonic textures.

    Fast Workflow and Intuitive Real-Time Control
    The panel of the Roland FA-06 is logically organized into dedicated sections, and the large color LCD presents a gorgeous look with inviting hi-res graphics for selecting tones, working with the sequencer, and adjusting various settings. It’s easy to navigate through the FA-06’s large sound selection by category and assign favorites for fast recall, while dedicated buttons deliver instant access to often-used functions such as transpose, octave range, and many others.

    Very pleased with this purchase
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Great mid range workstation. Cons: -Editing tones can be a little menu intensive but not enough to sour my view of the synth. -The sampler is fairly limited. Pros: -The large screen and recording options make it easy to slap an idea together pretty quickly. -I like the feel of the keys, they are a little off from standard but they feel nice once you get used to them. -The sounds on this thing are great, and there are plenty of them. Plus you can add sounds from the Axial library and even import Integra sounds. -Fast boot time.

    Not bad at all...
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I got this board because I needed something light to take to rehearsals. At 12lbs it's a winner. The sounds are good. The pianos/ep's on my MOXF8 are better but they're close.

    Best Workstation Ever!!!!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I am a pro musician and the FA06 is the fifth Workstation I've owned. And it was completely worth the wait. Former workstations have not been able to keep up with the ideas in my head. This machine is so insanely easy to use, a toddler could write a hit on it. The SHIFT button literally takes you everywhere quickly. Pages are clearly marked. Patch groups are clearly marked. The sampler is super easy and the sound overall is crystal clear. I recommend using a larger capacity SD card and definitely backup all data to your laptop so you will not need to redo your work. The only concern I have is the plastic casing. If this were in a metal case, that would be ideal. The plus here is that is is very light and a good carrying case should suppress fears of damaging it. Just be careful. The sounds are amazing. The Integra sound source is to die for and the Roland site also has even more sounds you can download into the unit. I highly recommend this and plan on buying another one.
