New Unique Motion Phrases!
Designed with contemporary dance, pop and hip-hop musicians in mind, the new FG Connects Live update adds hundreds of unique tempo-synced phrases to create instant motion and texture to any sound. Using the Fantom-G’s 16 dynamic pads, players can experiment with adding combinations of filter effects, panning, cutoff, and gating to their sounds. This enables performers all kinds of possibilities for controlling multiple motions while simultaneously playing the keyboard, thus inspiring remixing and sound manipulation both live and in the studio.
With FG Connects Live, these unique motion phrases are preset in over 50 RPS sets which are organized in over 200 Live Sets, that can be recalled instantly in the Fantom-G’s Live Mode. Combining these elements with temp-synced motion phrases, adds a new exciting element to the vast live performance experience that the Fantom-G Workstations are known for by players around the world.
