Fantom X as a groovebox

Postby eamusik2008 » 03:19, 24 February 2017


I was wondering is it possible to use fantom x6 like a groovebox? For example, I create patterns in the sequencer. Then i hook it up to an external keyboard with a sequencer and everytime I press play on that sequencer the pattern plays from the fantom. Is there a way to do this with only the pattern getting synched with my external keyboard. In other words, all the other notes I play on my keyboard and buttons I press does not affect the fantom. Thanks Friends

You can connect them via MIDI making sure that the send and receive channels are different. You can then sync them via MMC. I have two Fantoms and run the sequencers in sync that way. It's a bit fiddly but it works.
