I owned a yamaha motif, but wanted the korg triton studio, thinking that i can finally own the dream synth...needless to say, i spent $2000 for one new...turned it on, and tried the sounds and edited, etc. but still couldn't get it as 'realistic' sounding as the motif. Korg seems to be using the same strategy as the Roland does....fill it in with crappy samples, and then make the user spend more for their ahem..expansion boards...i mean the triton studio has 7 expansion boards, and each of them costs around $150, that is in addition to the $3000 or so you will spend on the keyboard! Absolutely ridiculous!

I do like The MOSS expansion ...that is really good, its not just a stupid sample board, its an actual VA synth engine...

Needless to say, I sold both the motif and the triton studio and bought a motif ES (newer version of the motif)...its only $2000 for a brand new 61 keyboard!! Needless to say, I was thrilled, it had 128 note polyphony, and 3 expansion slots....it doesnt need 7 expansion slots because the built in samples are awesome unlike the triton, not only that, the 3 expansion slots add FM, VA, VL VH or other synthesizers!! instead of some stupid samples like 'dance extreme'...

the sound quality of the motif es can't be beat.... the "MEGA VOICE TECHNOLOGY" guitar samples are extremely deep! many of my veteran guitarist friends say it sounds 99 percent like the real thing!! the AN synth engine is as good as the MOSS engine, but i installed 2 AN to get 10 polyphony, and a DX board for FM sounds...

Also lets move on to the sampler...the triton studio has a very lame sampler with 192 ppq, the motif es has 480 ppq sampler

Moving on to the sampler...the triton studio sampler has some nice features, but es has 'real time loop remix' that lets you remix loops live on the fly! and studio has 96mb sample max, while es can have 512 mb max.

only thing i like triton over the studio is it has a slot for built in CD burner and a harddrive, but its really not worth it, because if i want harddrive and cd burner with excellent 24/96khz sound card, the triton studio's recording quality sucks in comparison.

Make informed decisions. THe strong part of the motif es over the triton is that it has 160 mb of built in superb quality samples compared to triton studios 48 mb of lame samples, thus needing to spend more $$$$ for their 7 expansion boards...don't get fooled by the touch screen or other funky stuff...listen to them both, you will agree with me hands down.

After owning several of Roland's 'flagship' synths, (at the usual $2-3,500 a piece), I was very excited about the new Fhantom S88. Well, while I was at the dealer the Korg Triton Studio 88 caught my eye. Let me just say this; After spending 4 hours each on the two competitor's keyboards, the Triton is hands down the best keyboard as far as features, sounds, expandablity, interface, etc., that I have ever seen or played. Now, we can go on and on about how so & so manufacturer has better pianos or strings or whatever... I myself need a tool that lets me create the moment inspiration strikes, NOT one where I have to spend 3-6 months learning the manual, only to find out that one of the features falls short of the advertisment. I mean, who honestly gives a crap what the salesman thinks is "the best keyboard" (we've all been there right?). The bottom line is folks... if you are serious about writing music that is truly your own, don't let the price stop you. Go and buy this thing as soon as humanly possible!

I purchased a studio pro the Sun. after xmas... it rocks. I've used Korgs before, this one has them all beat. Nothing sounds better to me than the new Orchestra Expansion boards, they are very colorful and realistic sounding.

Good job, Korg. Looking forward to OS 2.0
