Help me with right Synth


Hi everyone!
A great guy from Kazakhstan (p.s. NOT Borat :)) choosing out from 4 keyboards: Yamaha Motif XF, Roland Fantom G, Nord Lead (Wave ?), Roland V-synth (GT ?) in order of key requirements:
1. fat sound (pads, different multi-layering timbres, great leads, etc)
2. realistic piano presets
3. great drum kits (mostly for techno sounding)
Generally speaking, I'd like to have most of 70th - 80th sound.
Please give me your thoughts and suggestions! The advice of other boards is of encourage)
Thanks in advance!

Don't forget the Korg M3. Great keyboard for the price with an excellent user interface.

This was my thought as well. Would recommend this one or Korg Kronos first and then they Yamaha Motif XS. The Kronos while expensive is an absolutely amazing keyboard and the best all in one IMO.

Yes, if you can afford the Kronos, buy it. It is an amazing workstation... I doubt if you would need anything else.

Hi guys, thanks for your respond, I think I'll get one! i don's see anything competitive, except MOtif XF so far, but anyways KRONOS sounds way better (IMHO).
I need to scrape up some money for this beast!)
So wish me luck!

How is the used market there? You may be able to save a lot of money getting an earlier model Motif, or ?
