Hi im new member and im thinking about buying a Motif.
The question that concerns me is about the difference between the original, and the Motif es.

Does the Motif have better sounding converters and better sound qualitiy then the original more on board sounds etc?

Re: difference between motif and motif ES

Both the Mo classic and the ES are top quality professional boards and both sound great. Some users prefer the sound of the classic and some prefer the ES so the jury’s out on that one.

The basic differences are:
Polyphony - classic 62 notes, ES 128
Sound memory allocations - ES has loads more in every department, user voice banks, arps etc.
Sample RAM - classic up to 64Mb using SIMMs, ES up to 1Gb using DIMMs (but check those load times !!!)
Storage - both use Smart Media. But the classic can connect to SCSI for other storage options. The ES has a USB “Out” so that it can connect with certain USB storage devices.
Effects - The classic has 3 global effects and 1 insert. The ES has only 2 global, but up to 8 inserts.

Both share the same keybeds. THe ES apparently has new filters which do give it a crisper sound apparently.
The ES has greater onboard ROM.
The ES also has a whammy strip and newer chunkier buttons for sequencer controls etc.

This is only only a summary and as the previous poster noted, much of the detail is buried somewhere in the forum and it will be worth a search.

Hope this helps
