FANTOM Sound Pack

Composers, musicians, and audio engineers use FANTOM series DAWs to create and edit music. These DAWs include an electronic keyboard, a mixing console, and a menu that allows users to select from and use many tones, effects, and other features.
Users who want to add more tones to their FANTOMs can download additional tones or tone packages from Roland's online tone library. Tone packages, which usually contain about 30 tones related to a specific music genre or theme, are saved as SDZ files. After downloading an SDZ file, users must place it on a USB drive and use that drive to import the file into their FANTOM.
NOTE: In 2020, Roland released an update for JUPITER-X, RD-88, MC-101, and MC-707 devices that allows those devices to also use SDZ files.
How to open an SDZ file
You can open an SDZ file by importing it into a Roland FANTOM workstation (or other compatible Roland device). To do so:
- Place the file on a USB drive and insert the drive into your FANTOM's USB MEMORY port.
- Press your FANTOM's MENU button.
- From the MENU screen, select UTILITY → IMPORT → IMPORT TONE.
- Navigate to and select your SDZ file. Select NEXT and follow the prompts to finish importing your SDZ file.
You can then select and play the tones your SDZ file contains.
