Roland Fantom Patch Editors

The Fantom Editor is awful. On has to get within a 4x4 pixel square to select/deselect a voice, and these popup menus are driving me nuts! For each sample change, I have to navigate through 3 layers of popups. I could go on, but those of you who are familiar with the editor already know its limitations. It's always true that you get what you.

Roland Fantom Patch Editors Review


PatchI could go on, but those of you who are familiar with the editor already know its limitations. It's always true that you get what you pay for. Yamaha's free editors aren't worth the price, either.

Is there another editor available from a commercial publisher, like SoundTower, or even a public domain editor available?

Roland Fantom Patch Editors Software

I've googled, but no luck so far. I wonder why SoundTower hasn't ported their XV editor?
