    A month or two ago, I posted that I was going to upgrade and get a new synth, and I was deciding between the Triton LE, Motif 6, and Fantom XA. I have eliminated the Triton as a possibility, and now I am trying to decide between the Motif and Fantom. I have gone to different websites to see what they say, and I have tried playin around on both at Guitar Center but I didn't get to hear all of the sounds on both.

    So which one would you recommend? I am getting them strictly for the synths, but if I had the Fantom I'd probably use the pad they have for samples but it's not that important to me. I have heard that the Motif has better acoustic sounds, but the Fantom has better synth sounds. With me, it's a hard call to say which one I feel is more important. It seems like the Motif has better drums and basses from what I played around with. If any of y'all use either one, and you have songs up on your site that use one of the boards, drop a link so I can check them out.

    Also....what is the Fantom S??

    How much different is the ES versus the regular? Damn, a lotta these things are confusin since I don't know many people with either one. I was messin around on Jerzey Devil's Fantom, but he had the configurations on there weird as fuck so I didn't know what to do wit it.
