I love this unit. If you have timing problems, don't worry...so did I. You have to disable the internal sequencer when working with computer. Simple set midi clock to external. Solves all timing problems.

The timing on the EX5 is absolutely appaulling - the worst I've heard ever. The sounds are nothing short of superb, but in multi mode the timing is just terrible. I can't believe it. Sadly this is going back to the store...... Dave (very unhappy)

Ive had my EX5 for a week now...and have had a little time to get into it... Overall I am impressed with its capabilities, though there are a few hitches here and there: Pattern Sequencer - cuts out long notes (ie. pad sounds) when switching tracks to do muting and/or playeffects (real time quantizing)... Pattern Sequencer2 - changing patterns while playing is a problem because the sequencer changes every bar instead of at the END of the currently playing pattern....so you have to wait till the last bar THEN change the pattern or else the next pattern may come in at the wrong time...there seems to be no adjustment for this feature... Both of these problems may be easily fixed by an OS rev....but who knows if they will do this...the cut off notes in the pattern sequencer could easily be the CPU not having enough juice to keep playing while you switch tracks...so this could be a permanent flaw...:( Also, I could have a bunk machine....this is all yet to be confirmed due to a lack of reply from Yamaha...The tech support guy I got at Yamaha seemed to have NO information for me at all... As for the GOOD stuff... The REVERBs are amazing...and the AWM sounds are really good... some of the AWM sounds rival the AN in warmth and fatness... The operating system is very very easy to use... as is the Pattern Sequencer (I had it working in 5 minutes)... Its too bad that it cuts out notes while playing otherwise this sequencer would be the ULTIMATE performance tool (it seems that it was designed to be a great performance tool, I really hope they fix it.) Ill be putting up a web-site soon : For the "Real World review of the EX5" But Im waiting to compile more accurate info...and I havent used all the features yet...(sampling, hooked up to external sequencer, etc...)
