Hes right, the EX5 series can do things the Triton and Motif can't, i got the Motif rack and its great for some sounds but the EX5r I have is also a wonderful sounding unit, its a keeper! btw...did i mention I have an AN200 for sale?

The EX5 is a wonderful sunth. The sampling is a plus, of course, but even just used as a pure synthesizer, it is quite outstanding. Well-equipped with superb controllers (Infintely better than the Motif, by the way, and containing four types of synthesis, this is a very versatile synth with a sweet tone and a nice synthy keyboard. If you get one for 500-700 dollars, you have made a deal!

Hey douschebag,it's collecting dust because you've never really used it- you've never heard it because you are too lazy to download patches for it - lest program anything original of your own. If you've ever bothered to sample anything you would know that if you sample garbage, that's exactly what you get on the other end- in real 16 bit 44khz, cd-quality fidelity. Just like everyone else.

Come on, fess up- you've never gotten beyond the factory presets. And despite the hype you will find the new gear you mention has not lived up to expectations, is not more reliable and has a whole boatload of new problems.I already know EX has a relatively slow scsi and a scaled- down sequencer, despite this the sonic power and sequencing capabilities are still very intuitive and powerful compared to what's out there.

Anybody who uses midi in a sequencing environment is aware of it's numerous glitches and shortcomings and workarounds- those, like you- who don't know how to program midi will be forced to buy boatloads of new crapola to get the gear to do what you want. One day they will create a keyboard that can read your brainwave state- but until then I'm keeping my EX5. Not a classic synth,true, but a real- blue-collar, workingman's kit.

Now go fiddle with your mc909, you groove approved idiot.

I have made a review already, but when i made the review i was but just a boy having got his first synth

I've had the blue beast for a good 4 years now? it has become the backbone of my 'studio', it may not have the best choirs and pianos..but theres always something new to be found in it. There is a fantastic online community for this synth which realy expands what is possible. You get a sense that the synth is alive and organic, definatly not a piece of machinary..this thing lives and breaths, it has off days and on days.

You'll grow to love it! And you'll never be able to get rid off it!

:-) Uncle Vic
