that's not a fair poll, because it depends on what do you want to do with it... if you're into synth, then the 6HD is a clear winner, and if you are simply after ready to go presets, then any of the other 3.

The Fusion is not supposed to be compared to those! Let's be fair!

I can't stand the endless knobs on the Alesis. It's really hard to do fiter cutoff/resonance tweaks accurately when you can't see where the knobs are positioned.

The sounds also didn't blow me away.

The Korg TR series really underwhelmed me. I have a Triton Le, and the TR is like a repackaged Le, with VERY minor differences. Why did they bother?

The Yammy Mo series really impressed me. Best sound set out the choices Tweak presented by far.

The Juno I didn't even bother with. Heard so many bad things about it that I rather spend the time fondling the Access Virus or Korg Radias--much sexier fun.

The E-60 delivers incredible, hi-impact sound thanks to its powerful four-speaker, bi-amplified sound systems, complete with Bass Reflex System and Digital Bass Enhancer.


Never thought I'd see the day....ew. That really smacks of "cheesey Casio keyboard"-ness

what most people don't realize is that the Fusion is worth much more!
they just go for Hype...
it's has a killer synth engine that's begging to be tweaked..

i am trying to decide between Juno-G and MO6
does anyone have suggestions on how they compare?

i do mainly electronic music + industrial metal (e.g. rammstein style)

i love Juno-G sounds, but the keys suck... haven't tried other features yet
and i am hearing only the best stuff about MO6

so i wonder what everybody thinks
many thanks! :wink:

MO 6 but watch it because rebate time at Yamaha on the MO and Motif Rack ES means something might be afoot.Maybe a MO XS 6 or MO X?

Just a few months earlier I would've voted for Da "G" but then I went on the lemonade diet and had an epiphany of sorts.....

I always knew that KORG sucked in the acoustic sounds dept. and Roland is still "living in the '80's" so to speak.

Yamaha is the best for acoustic sounds and their modern stuff ain't half bad either.

the Korg TR has very good sounds for live performance, the metals, the acordion, sax, trumpets, are great for Cumbias, Mambos, Cha-cha-chas, it sounds well!!! :oops: (sorry. . . in mexico, people love this stuff and i need to eat) But, at the studio, writing a bit of experimental metal, all the sounds are a little boomy, but with a good eq the synth pads are just great!!! in

I still stand by the MO 6-For the money NOW (1k) it is more than ever an incredible sounding keyboard.

If I had the extra k though,I would get the Motif XS.

I'm still holding hope for a "MO XS" though.

Poll has been updated
Old results at bottom.
The winner was the Juno G, which i predict will have a tough time against the Korg m50.

I voted for the M50- touch screen, and you can add Karma (software) to it... Meanwhile, the Juno-G can add sample RAM... Take yer pick!

I voted for the MM8. Buying one used tomorrow as I wanted a lighter Motif ES8 to gig with. And I like the action.
