let me start off by saying I don't work for yamaha. I m just giving my honest review...I first owned a korg triton studio, now i own yamaha motif es 88. I am a synthesist and classic pianist!

Now here's my review and comparisons: korg triton has only 32 MB samples, 62 notes polyphony (62 is not enough if you are a classic pianist or if you use the keyboard as a one-man band) and you hear it in every cheesy album put out from hollywood, justin timberlake, britney spears, and the like...

yamaha's motif ES version is currently the best, 175MB with REAL voice technology (megavoice)

yamaha rocks, they invented FM (DX7), VA (virtual modelling - VL1), yamaha has always topped in innovations! and korg is mostly sample board, while a motif ES can turn into a DX7! (FM plug in board), Prophet (AN plug in board) or a VL1 (virtual plug in board)

Its awesome!

Only thing I like about korg is the touchscreen interface!

korg is just another japanese company like roland trying to compete with their big brother, yamaha!

OH my i just had to write another comment on the triton after reading about this keyboard war with the motif es , Il say this all of the instruments have there strengths and faults and there is always a catch to everything you buy period . Also i heard so many stories about how the motif is this and the triton is that and i must admit there both good instuments just that everytime some new gear comes out everybody rushes to buy it just like back in the old days when the Dx7 fm hit the market and the digital sound and presets killed the analog keyboards for years and then we had a workstation nightmare also, i remember you had to work for your sound and create and you didnt have midi back then to link your instruments together it took hard work and sacrifice and good old fashion thought to programing and learning what you had in your instrument and whats really sad is some people dont have the luxuary and means to afford these keyboards there is some musicians still playing less than 32 notes polphony to achieve there sound status so i say its not about apple and oranges its about using the technolgy you got to acheive your craft about your art with the means of good equiptment and another thing whats sad is half of the musicians out there dont even know what a ring modulator is our a voltage control filter is and a few are is still playing presets and as for korg i think they took a bold step in putting out a keyboard with a free burner and yamaha using the polphony scheme hell who needs that many notes if your on stage lol " and lastly the moog cost more than both yamaha and korg and you get nothin but true classic synth and a legends endorsement!!!

Well coming from the old school era with nothin but analog and getting shook with digital for years i seen roland and yamaha beat up on korg for yrs eventho there instruments have been in the main stream for yrs until now , the triton series keyboards blew musicians mind with so much power at your finger tips and its everywhere in studio's and abroad like the D50 did for roland , but i wonder how do you top this. Every aspect of the triton and the studio series is still yet to be discovered inside and out on indepth programing as with the M1 series but the board just kicks but period and i can imagine what korg will do next but the triton line has made a permenant mark in the music industry as a good keyboard .

The Triton Studio is an "INCREDIBLE" addition to my studio set-up. I bought the Triton "classic" the month it came out and it too is a great piece. I used it for 3 years making Hip Hop & R&B beats - everything from extremely "gutter" street beats to the radio friendly PIP HOP(POP+HipHop)sound thats has been destroying radio the last few years. It wasn't until I sold my classic to buy the Studio version that I met a Korg rep who knew that machine INSIDE and OUT. Everything I learned from 3 yrs of making beats couldn't compare to the Tips and tricks the rep showed me. A 30 min introduction to the Triton Studio turned into a 3 hour training session.........

My point is this: 1) The Korgs, Yamahas and Rolands etc. do Sooooo much more then the average "semi pro" realizes. It really takes years of digging into these machines to fully master them. 2) You only get out of anything what you PUT INTO IT! Take your time and master your craft. "...just because beats can be made quickly doeesn't mean they are supposed to be..." quote from Chad Hugo Remix Mag.

There are alot of great machines on the market today that are easy to use and make recording your own material sound professional. Lets make some "Good" music.......
