Hi everybody, I'm a new user here and I'd like You to help me in this hard decision.
I saw some similar topics here, but the point is to let you know what I need in my workstation, so You could tell me which one would be a good choice for me.
I've posted this message on some other forum, but I didn't get the answer yet.
Let's get straight to it:
I think it's about time to buy myself a professional music equipment. I'm strongly confused about those 3 workstations. Each of these is soooo good, that I'd like to buy them all, but my financial status is not big enough
A very relevant aspect is a good sound. My workstation should work on WAVe files, because I want to master the sequences on a computer. Therefore, a good and easy compatibility with the computer is very important to me. I don't want to use it to play it, but primarily, to compose and use it as a sampler.
Do you know some known producers workin on some of these workstations? Cuz I've seen Timbaland working on Triton, I know that Scott Storch is using a Motif and I've heard some sounds from Fantom in Sean Paul's songs.
Korg Triton has one of the best music keyboards outthere, Yamaha Motif is said to have a great instrument's sound and Roland Fantom is the only series which has 16 dynamic pads just like an MPC, so it makes the drums sound very realistic! Some people say that Triton is mostly used in R'n'B/Pop industry, Motif does a great job in electronic music and Fantom is a perfect machine for hip-hop productions because of the dynamic pads and interface.
Anyway - I would like somebody to help me decide, and that's why I have a BIG request for all the users, tell me something about the useful options of these machines. Here are some features which I find the most important and which I'd like to be discussed:
*best sampler (slicing etc)
*biggest sound bank
*easiest connection to the computer and file transfer (USB - because I'd like to have an option which allows to transfer the samples from the computer to the workstation and after the work, to save the finished sequences back on the computer)
*biggest effects bank
*compatibility with *.wav files
Your help will be highly appreciated
