Default studio or extreme?

I'd like to replace my TS 61 with a TE 61...
but someone said the STUDIO SOUNDS BETTER than extreme, for the better quality of D/A convertors...

is it true? thanks a lot..

I've read a Sound on Sound review that said that the Triton Studio is effectively the top of the line triton as it has a fair few processing tools and sequencing tools, better sound quality (apparently) which the Extreme does not have, not to mention the built in CDRW (if you have that option)...But you do get a larger rom set of samples, the Tube and USB connections. I also thought the Extreme was very very similar sounding to the TS so I think you'll be wasting your money if you think you're gonna get a completely new instrument from the TS you already have. But the best thing to do is go to your local music shop and try an extreme out and see if you'll be getting any functions that you must have...I've played both a fair bit and they both sounded pretty much the same to my ears, almost identical on some patches.

They're both great boards...yeah, basically it's up to you. I'd definitely go for a Triton Extreme if I had the possibility...well, if you have a Triton Studio, it isn't a priority anyway...if you have to spend $200 more than what you get from the TS sale, well, just keep the TS and buy a MIC200 to route your signal into the tube :). Or save money for another board or a good weighted midi controller (Oberheim MC2000 is a must :D).

I have seen that conjecture on Irish Acts, too

The Extreme does have the Studio ROM set plus it has all that extra ROM plus tube. Plus Korg did revoice some or many of the multi samples.
Plus Korg tuned up the volume on many of the programs.

One would have to carefully A/B the Extreme's Studio ROM programs/combi's ( keep the tube off) to the same Studio programs/combi's.

That would be a lot of work to identify IF there was a difference
with ' all ' or some of the programs/combi's and WHAT the difference is.
I am skeptical of the conjecture until someone breaks it down.

Or until we see the official Korg response on D/A converters.
