So many years I've looked for Digital synth. I'm working in Real professional condition, so I decided - Ex5.

When I met Stevie wonder at Santamonica beach, He mentioned about this machine.

It's really cool. Here is my opinion; Ex5 > Trinity > Trinity rack(TR rack) > Karma

You know Triton's filter is terrible.

Thanks a'lot

This a GREAT synth. I was looking for something to compose with when i'm away from home so i bought the ex5r. The sequencer has to be one of the best hardware sequencers that i've used and i'm a die hard cubase fan. THese can be found really cheap i paid $1049 brand new. Get one!

I traded my Korg Trinity for the EX5, even got $200 in between. And I feel sorry for the guy who got my Trinity. The EX5 sounds are amazing, the only thing I miss sound-wise is a great grand piano.

It's a great master/controller keyboard. I don't use the sampler/sequencer as I have computer for sequencing and an external sampler.

I bought my EX5 for 540 quid. It took about a month to really get into the depths of it and you find that its very powerfull in the FX section and is great for dance music. The only thing is that it has an annoying timing problem with layed instruments that use a lot of polyphony. This cant be avioded. Also the SCSI is so god damn slow that there is no point in loading any samples bigger than about 2mb cos its boring waiting for them to load and you forget any ideas that you have to tweak them. I'm thinking about getting a standalone sampler and sound module but I'll miss it dearly.

Well now, this was my first synth, it does take a bit to get into, it is very deep, 4 types of synthesis, you probably know this already.

Personly I find the FDSP stuff no use, apart from the water filter, the AN stuff is very nice and warm, VL can achieve some great sounding wind instruments, and good old AWM.

If you get this synth you will get sick of seing the words 'DSP RESCOURCE FULL' (oh if only i could spell) In a performance you can only have 1 of either AL,VL,or FDSP. If you use any of these in a performance you can only use one insert effect (i think)

I would say this synth is more suited to dance, techie stuff rather than the traditional sounds (such as piano, harps, chiors etc)

If I was to wake up an find my EX5 had be burned, quite frankly i would be quite curious how, and then would rush out and get another- It does every things, I have a love hate relationship with it, if you have the patience it can do anything.

(n.b. if you would like this synth to do everything you will have to buy the SCSI board (£150) and 64mb of funny RAM (£120) a zip drive (£124) and coffee (£2.99)and the synth (£900ish)
