Dont let the scaremongers frighten you off. This synth is awesome. DSP Limitations can be worked around. Especially as u can internall sample AN VL or FSDP sounds into memory. OK, it would be nice to have more AN voices, but hey, for the money this is a great package...

And once the slow SCSI is fixed I'll be totally happy.

The slow scsi-problem is solved, there's gonna be an update. Th timing problem is also solved. Yamaha really listened to us users. My dealer is getting the updates in a few weeks from now. For all the other problems, it will be solved. But how about the price?? you won't buy a Trinity for that. If you're only looking for a sequence synth. consider the XP-90. The EX-5 is a performance synth. so it's made for stage, not for studio. It will do in the studio, but you'll have many other instruments there. On stage it's really cool, I use it with the Yamaha DX-11 and a Roland RD-600. It's really very versatile, from Classical to Gabber. If you don't like the piano, sample a piano yourself, or buy a piano-sample-cd. You can get all the sounds that you want. GRTZ

Only reason this machine only gets a 4 instwead of a five is because of the few probs with the operating sys. Have spent six days with it and it got better. Sound is always personal so I won't say it's better or worse...etc but it is VERY playable and once you start using the performance features then the sound takes off! I found a number of sounds that I could take straight away onto the stage. Heaps of editing possibilities cept for the VL voices( which sound fab). Only thing that annoyed me was the DSP Full message!!

"NOTHIN BUT NET"!! Yep, if you are into the complete gambit of jazz, fusion, new age and experimental...nothing beats the the capabilities of the EX-5...now or in the forseeable future. I have used it alone, and with my EPS 16+ and two rack-mounted M3R's. Buy one if you you can...they are very scarce. Also the problems with this initial version 1.0, will definately be addressed by Yamaha before too long.

Be still my beating heart...even as a midi guitar player, I can forsee a fabulous future in store...and speaking of "stores", I head back to Guitar Center today to upgrade from the module to the full keyboard...I want all this groovy stuff right in front of me. The keyboard and synth sounds are fantastic...havn't tried the other stuff yet, as I want to return this module in "unmolested" condition!
