In [this interview](http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/jul07/articles/djpremier.htm) on djpremierblog.com, Dj Premier talks about gear and artist among other things. Interviewer: "Speaking of the product, what kind of equipment do you use to make music? What’s in your production arsenal?" Dj Premier: "MPC50, Turntable, Mixer, AKAI S950 Sampler, [Roland Fantom-XR Sampler Synth] Rackmount Module. The rest are plugins for Pro Tools because a lot of plugins are vintage equipment that we used as far as analog output gear."more
"For her latest award-winning CD Sliver Ship, Suzanne employed one of Roland’s finest synth modules: the Fantom-XR. “Basically, I used the Fantom-XR in two ways,” she explains. “I used it to mock up all of the parts while doing the arrangements for strings, oboe, flute, cello solo, guitar, and bass. Then, for the recording, I created the electronic sonic design for the piece called ‘Snow Crystals’ using the XR’s digital output for a really clean signal. The Fantom-XR is a great tool — very easy to navigate and quite editable.”"more
