i have to admit the motif sounds a bit better as far as accoustic sound go but the triton blows the doors of the motif for electronic music.also its the most userfriendly board on the planet. motif buyers beware of the midi delay problem with motif and also its very hard to use. i chose the triton.

Personal Opinion Comment:Rating From (1 to 10%)

Keyboard (Korg Triton sampler) 9.3% Sampler 8.5% Sequencer 9.4 General Patches 9.2% (editing) Wind instruments 8.9% Pads, synth sounds, Rap sounds, ect. 9.8% Clasical instuments (piano, strings, ect). 9.0 % Touch key feeling 8.9% Built Quality 8.8% (plastic sides, why korg?) Effects 9.8% (Good) Overall 9.3% (Good Korg) you're learning.

Am I satisfied? Of course I am, this synth is King. Yamaha Motif is second best, but Yamaha, please learn your leason from your big brother Korg. Next time try to do a simpler synth, and you might win then.

I've had my Triton for 2 years. I started out using the sequencer on the keyboard before i bought Cubase 5.1. Every time somebody asks me about advice on starting a studio, the Triton is the first thing that i suggest. Not only can you record 16 tracks, with 5 insert effects and 2 master effects, you can do full arrangments through the cue list. The sequencer comes with like 200 (approx) loops for drums in all genres (hip hop, rock, house, techno, big beats, drum n bass etc- and i'm not talking about the future loop construction board) which you can import by loading a template song. Great for any producer whos just starting out. The sequencer is also great for tracking your midi channels. I use the triton as my master keyboard. It's like a preliminary computor before it goes to my mac. The arpegiator is great because the stock arps are not only cool, but user friendly and by using the arp editor, you can creat your own arps (like using a midi editor) As far as the sounds go, the triton at os 2.5 supports all the triton classique, triton studio and Karma sounds (which are downloadable from the net). The stock "clasique" sounds are great but the best part is that you have an entire bank (E bank) where you can create your own sounds. Every combination can be re-created and every program can be altered, fx added and so on. The sound possibility is endless. With the moss board you have the same 6 voice mulit ossilating synth as the korg Z1, prophecy and Trinity V3. I have three exb boards which add some serious sounds. Only one problem. The triton only fits two expansion boards. Sucks because there are about four of them that i want. For people who want to make full use out of the Korg catologue i suggest the Triton studio, which is basically the same but with the space for seven boards (plus a moss) and an entire bank selection for quick and easy acsess. Over all, the Triton is not just a keyboard, because it's ability to be taylored to it's owner, it becomes an extension of the self.

I've had a Triton for almost two years now and find it fantastic. The effects are awesome and the sequencer is very easy to use.

The preset sounds overall are very very good. In particular the organs, slow synths and strings are fantastic.

I've also fitted the Vintage and Dance cards to it. Both are sound great. Especially the vintage card, which has some nice sounding electronic pianos and polyphonic synths.

As many people have already said, the bass sounds on the triton are not straight forwardly spectacular. In amongst the dodgy sounds however are more than enough good ones, particularly if you play around with them a bit. My personal favourite is the "superswitch bass," for a heavy and hard slap, which doesn't sound from the eighties.

I've recorded hundreds of sequences internally on the Triton and it has never died once on me in the last two years. Just be careful not to eject a disk while it's saving something, I learn't that lesson!

Overall then, I give the Triton 5 stars. Once you get to know sounds, you'll often recognise them in music on the radio, which is a testiment to its potential. At the same time, there is still pleanty of scope in it to come up with you own personal sound.

Had the Triton for almost a year, now its sold and forgotten. I used for a lot for programming my own sounds, but the synth engine is weak, especially the filters. Sounds are really weak in sequnecer mode! I still think it's good for pop, r&b and hiphop, but I don't do that kind of music. For electronic, ambient/chillout it's not so useful. Drums and bass are actually good, accoustic instruments ok, but synth and pads are too "digital" for my taste. Think and try before you buy it.
