some one who used this site asked me a question via email, i thought id let others see it too, to maybe help. i know i used this site for my buying decsions so i know where you are all at. peace.

yes, i make hiphop beats on the triton le. i used to own an mpc as well. the sounds on the triton le are the same as the regular triton, but improved (because it is newer) the only differance is there is no pcm expansion boards, but that is okay because the sampler is awesome! i do admit, the mpc sampler is easier to figure out, but if you figured out the mpc,

then you will have no problom on the le. if you have any basic questions on how to pump out the basic beats on the le, just ask and i will try to help you.

seriously, on the le, in 5-10 minutes, i can get a snare, kick, and hihat hiphop beat going, bassline too. the tritonle has the ability to step record, just like the mpc, but i think it is better than the mpc because of the keyboard and basic sounds you dont want to sample, like the strings (who do you

know that owns an orchestra to sample?) the basses are awesome too. basically all the sounds are professional. plus with the triton you can edit all of those sounds. i mean really edit them, mess with frequencies, lfo, oscalators, etc., octave. you can layer sounds like piano, and a violin, and cool stuff like that. everything is there to produce good hiphop.

lots of hiphop groups use the triton, like the living legends, some commerical too. i know that dr.dre probably used it at some point as well. overall the triton is an awesome piece of equipment.

i make some raw beats. the drums have punch. although its always nice to sample your own and make them real punchy, but the triton is awesome. the keys are anolog too, so the harder you hit the keys, the more they resonate, like on

a snare drum, if you hit it harder it will vibrate more, the drums are like that on the triton.

overall i would say do not think you will be disappointed with the triton le. and i would buy the triton le, not the regular triton, or the karma. the price

is better and everything is the same except the expansion boards, but those are

downloadable off the net and cost alot less then the differance between the triton le and the classic triton.

im into more intelectual hiphop, im fairly new at producing, but i love it. i do not do anything professional, but i make the beats my freinds and i rap or freestyle too. recently ive been trying to hook up with a couple buddies of mine to lay some serious stuff down. i just bought an mrs-4 by zoom. its a digital 4 track recorder. its only 230 bucks, but its high quality, not the best out there, but good because it uses smartmedia like the triton le, so i can record tracks, put them on my computer and burn a cd. for a good hiphop production kit, go with the le, a mic, and that zoom 4 track. i figure that im

starting out, when i get better, i can buy more and better things.

i have a blast with my triton and 4track recorder, i lay a beat, and friend, busts a freestyle and boom ive got it to cd.

i would say i like to make simple beats, but progressive, not annoying bleeping

shit. i like jazzy stuff, although im still learning that stuff, sequencing that shit is wierd, using triplets. i would recomend to help you with that stuff, print out some drum tab off the internet, you can use it to sequence drum tracks using step recording, and learn types of drumming, like jazz.

i also like the quantize on the triton, the mpc had it but ive seemed to get better results when i use the triton then on the mpc. but maybe its just how i do it. do youlike the mpc? i sold mine for the le because i needed a good keyboard, but figured i go with a cost effective package that didnt sacrafice good results. its funny lots of people buy the triton for its sounds, but dont realize they dont really need any other shit to sequence or sample. i guess its

a matter of what you are used to, but if you get used to the triton you will learn a ton of shit.

its a great keyboard. i bought it because im not loaded and i wanted pro gear, i owned an mpc2000xl, i needed a good keyboard, and i decided to go for an all in one for price. the sequencer is great for any kind of music, the sampler is superb, and the synth just blows my mind. the hi system is the same as the full triton, and the karma, unbelievable. i chose the le over the classic triton because i didnt need expensive features like touch screen.

the joystick suffices without a ribbon controler, and i do not need to add any pcm cards because i can use the sampler. you can download the pcm sounds from the internet and put them on smart media. the smartmedia is great, no need to use tons of cruddy disks, plus the price of a smart media drive for your computer is under 30 bucks. on the regular triton or any sampler, sequencer, synth, you need to buy all the add ons, like zip drive, etc. with the le you are set right of the bat, the only upgrade is sampler, (cheap) and more memory. it comes free with a smart media card.

the sounds are killer, im into hiphop and jazz stuff. I also play with some blues friends, so the le is versitile, the strings and organs are great. the acustic piano is great. some complain, but if you are buying the triton for all of its features, you can sample better, or be satisfied. if you want an awesome acustic piano, go for a dedicated piano synth. i personall think its fine plus you can edit the sample. if you buy the korg just for the piano sample, your an idiot anyways.

the user interface is really simple, i have yet to look at the manual. its sequencer is unparalleled, except maybe the mpc, but its easy to capture your creations. i love the smartmedia, i put like 15 drum patterns on the card, then load them and play live dance techno music at my house for parties, its fun. the arpegiator is good, although for writing my other music, i do not use it. overall if you are looking for an all in one, low cost, go for the le. besides if you need anything better than this, you will be able to afford a million other toys anyways so buy them all if you can.

This is a great workstation- got mine for $1100 What is most impressive to me is the sound engine itself, it is very lively, much livlier than my Alesis Qs6.1 and Yamaha/Korg piano modules.

In addtion, the organs and drums stand out. The acoustic piano is a bit of an improvement over the Classic Triton, was able to edit it also to improve it

I think the interface is easy to get around with, and I dont miss the touch screen- it makes me feel like I am using a microwave oven.

The smart media card is an improvement, as it can hold several dozen (if not hundred) songs.

The only drawback is aside from the sampling option you can not add any PCM boards
