The FA-08 is a pro-quality 88-key music workstation that features a built-in audio interface and one-button DAW integration via USB. There is a wealth of sounds included from the Integra-7 sound module and a huge amount of studio-quality effects - sixteen independent MFX engines, six COMP+EQ processors for drums, unique TFX (total effects), as well as global EQ, chorus, and reverb.
All of the comprehensive feature set is complemented by a powerful built-in sampler and 16-track sequencer, plus D-Beam, Rhythm Pattern, Arpeggiator, and Chord Memory functions all helping to expand your creative palette.
Connectivity is also abundant as you'd expect from a flagship workstation. There are dedicated Guitar/Mic and Line input jacks for performing, sampling, and DAW audio recording - dedicated input reverb provides ambience for performing/recording. You'll also find USB ports for sound expansion data, updates, and audio/MIDI interfacing with a computer. MIDI communication with the iPad is possible when using Apple's iPad Camera Connection Kit (not included).
This unit is great in both the studio and the live stage offering all the tools of the trade in a unit that weighs in at 5.7kg, allowing you to make music wherever inspiration takes you.
