Purchased when it came out for $1100, i think it is a great board

-the keyboard is lighter than the classic, but it doesnt bother me, the advantage being it contributes to the lighter weight

- the quality of the sound itself through headphones or monitors is astounding

- sounds can be editied to be improved upon, so dont always go in a store and say "that bass wasnt good"- work with it

- the menu system is excellent- buttons are well placed

i do melodic trance and i own a lot of analog synths and i needed one do it all keyboard this is by far better than the triton classic for the price. the sounds are better and a few extra ones too. the sequencer is awsome and so easy to use. if u want a 100% proffesional workstation and dont want to break the budget get the triton le you wont be sorry.

I think the Triton LE w/sampling option is one of the best values out there. I've always liked the Triton's sound, but felt that a) some of the sounds were over effected and b) I wasn't going to warrant spending over 2 grand for one. So when the Triton LE came out, and I heard it, I actually liked it better than the Triton (only thing I miss is the Touchscreen, but this thing is hella easy to get around).

It's very useful for most types of music. I make R&B, Hip Hop, Pop, Dance, New Age/Soundtrack-type music, on and on...This thing slides into different genres quite easy. I haven't gotten deep into programming sounds yet, but so far it's pretty easy. Sampling is great and easy. It didn't take me long to figure out its functions without opening the manual.

I'm also in love with the SmartMedia format. I used to hate the idea, but, other than the price, it's a nice format. Quick with saving and loading. Oh, and the feel of the keyboard doesn't bother me at all. I rather like it.

Overall, you can get full tracks done with JUST this piece. But I incorporate it with some other pieces, and it helps picking and tailoring the right sounds MUCH easier. Bottom line is, if you can't make music with this thing...you can't make music.

THIS SYNTH IS REALLY COOL. I JUST DISAGREE WITH ALL THOSE TECHNO RYTHMS IN IT. WHY ADD RYTHMS THAT I'LL NEVER USE, I PLAY OTHER TYPE OF MUSIC TOTALLY DIFFERENT. BUT ANYWAYS BESIDES THAT. THIS SYNTH HAS IT ALL.

"The keys feel terrible and it is full of dance sounds...shame on Korg."

It is full of dance sounds - it is also full of jazz, rock, R & B, classical, film score, pop, and country sounds. Everything is here. I think Korg (probably Jack Hotop) did an excellent job at making sound choices. Of course, when I started buying synths in the '70s, you had to '"roll your own" sounds. If you don't like the dance sounds, get rid of them and program!! The keyboard is definitely not the best available. But come on, the thing costs $1300. brand spanking new. Herbie Hancock plays the Karma on stage - same keybed as the Le. Seems to be good enough for one of the foremost pianist/keyboardists of our time.
