DT fans need patience. Ever heard of Rick Wakeman? or Keith Emerson. Or better yet Oscar Peterson or Marcus Roberts?

Of course! But my fave is the former DT keyboardist Kevin Moore. Too bad he quit (Jordan Rudess does a very good job) and started making this Chroma Key stuff!

I only got 1 keyboard, the Korg Triton Extreme. Which is extreme in all ways!  ph34r.gif

I would like to have the Nord Electro stagepiano and the Yamaha Motif, and Alesis Andromeda, and Minimoog Voyager........ fists crying.gif

Oh I never heard of the Extreme. What's that like? Is that a new or old one? unsure.gif

It is the latest (and the last (I think)) addition to the Triton series. It is (As it states on the keyboard): It's everything Triton taken to the the extreme!

The whole ROM from the Studio edition, plus a couple of hundred new programs. In total 1344 programs and 1280 combinations. I have also the MOSS card, so I have a few additional program/combinations.  1022.gif

It has also a tube-driven Valve Force circuitry that can be used as an insert effect or on the final outputs, adding just the right amount of warmth or snarl to your sound. It is mega cool, and I think Korg are the first to have this (dont know if its going to be a hit or not).  1022.gif

Here's a link to Korg's homepage:

Here's a pic of the monster (the Valve Force are the blue bulb up in the left corner):

I am VERY happy with it! I read on Korg's homepage My Webpage that if you order it now you get the MOSS card for free. The Moss card costs approx USD 500-600.

Here's a synth for Ya:

The Alesis Andromeda!

What about this, the new Korg Oasys (costs about USD 12.000 in Norway  angry.gif  )

I just bought an Alesis Fusion 6HD  biggrin.gif .

It was relatively cheap and it is such an amazing board, i've been able to coax some pretty amazing stuff out of this thing.

I really would like a Stage Piano and a 'hands-on' synth (again, I sold my SH-32 a few months ago) I wouldn't mind an Andromeda but thats way out of my price range.

I fully recommend the Fusion however and I got mine for around 1050$ CDN after duty and taxes (USED).

FULLY recommended.

This Oasys looks very different in that picture than the one sold in Canadian or US stores.

The Oasys here is in two pieces (ie. The Brain and then the master controller) and is completely silver all over and dosen't have that CD-drive and also dosen't look as cool!

It does sound very good though but it isn't what I want to use to add to my palette  laugh.gif .

I would like to try Alesis, but I never buy anything not tested. Sadly, it is very rare to find Alesis in musicshops in Oslo. It is all about Korg, Roland, Yamaha, Clavia.


Have you tried the Korg Radias? It looks and sounds rather special:

Thank the heavens for this thread laugh.gif

I'm trying to get into synths, but i'm not looking for one that would be used to play melodies. Anyone here heard Muse's Black Holes and Revelations? I'd like one that makes sounds like the synths on there

Thanks for any help biggrin.gif

You should! If you want a lot of synth for the money you should get the Yamaha MO6. It costs around NOK 12000 brand new, but it should be possible to get an used one by now.

Well, you can get a couple of newer KORG models for a better price nowadays. I saw a Korg Triton LE (the lightversion of Triton) for Nok 5000 at musikkweb.no. Korg Karma goes for around 7-8.000. Jordan Rudess used or still use Korg Karma.
