Great keyboard... It is not my first but my best. It is good for someone who is a part time or hobbyist and has a great interest in music production / recording. For some people the learning curve may be longer than others. But once you have master the N264, You may not have to get a triton. The difference bxn the triton and the n264 is that the triton has that damn touch screen (which makes it look cool and all), and you may have a bigger library of sounds. I use several modules with my n264 (E-MU and Yamaha), and my n264 is my master sequencer. And the sequencer is really good to use.... Like I said, really no difference to the Triton.(once you know how to use it, you will realize that almost all the setting=g on the n264 is the same as the triton. I use the heck out of my n264 (like almost every project) and I absolutely LOVE the rich, crisp, realistic sounds it produces (best pianos and strings and synths), Sweet Envelope generators, and the Variable tone generator allows you to tweak the sounds and many ways. And the variable pitch modulator is pretty cool too. Bad stuff (and yes every machine has its bad side to them):
I could used a bit more ram on it to use and a MIDI data filer for my Yamaha module…I keep finding myself using tricks and shortcut with my sequencer to save memory.
Also I wish that the combinations did not actually take up like 8 tracks on my sequencer, so I’m only left with 8 tracks and program changes for the rest of my production tracks.
all in all it really great!!!! I have made some of my best produation with this korg...and It is not exactly what you get.....but how you use it is with counts.

This is by far one of the best instruments I have ever owned. I do a lot of live playing and initially I was only using it for the sounds it could produce for me while I was playing live with a full band. In addition to keys (me) we also had bass, drums, guitar, and horns. I eventually left that group and formed my own smooth jazz trio. In order to keep that "full" sound while only working with a skeleton crew, I began using the N264's on-board 16-track sequencer. I now have entire shows that are stored onto disk and we seem to get great reviews everytime we perform. The quality of this keyboard's sounds and user friendliness are it's biggest selling points for me. Also, when I first got this instrument I thought I was having a problem with it. I called Korg customer assistance @ 516-333-9100 and the support they gave me was incredible. Nice to know even though they already had my money, I wasn't at all treated like I was a bother to them. They even called me back to ensure I had my issue resolved! Hope they keep up the good work!

I HAVE USED THIS KEYBORED FOR THE LAST 3 YEARS AND HAVE WONDERED HOW KORG COULD POSSIBLY TOP IT.
IT HAS AWSOM SOUND AND E THE 16 TRACK SEQ...WOW THE FACT THAT IT HAS 76 KEYS MAKES IT EVEN SO MUCH NICER. I PLAY WITH EVERYDAY...YOU WOULD TOO!

I've used a couple of older synths, like the Korg 01/W, the Yamaha DX-7, and a few Casio CZ-series synths, but the Korg N264 is by far the most versatile keyboard I've ever used. Make no mistake, this isn't just a synthesizer, it's a music workstation - which means a big difference! Besides over one thousand on-board sounds (programs and combinations), this keyboard comes with a floppy disk drive (for saving/loading song files and program data/patches) and a 16-track sequencer, essential for any serious musician. I bought it two years ago at close to $2,000, but the price has come down now - it's still one of the most capable workstations on the market, though! Another incredibly useful feature is the Realtime Pattern Play/Record (RPPR)...hard to explain unless you own one, but amazing to use once you get the hang of it! If you do any serious live performing, sequencing, or recording, the N264 is definitely worth the price! It's by far the first choice for a workstation if you can't afford a Trinity or Triton.
