A few more words PA-80 as a synthesizer is even better than Triton because you can use 4 OSC. Per program and Triton can only use 2 there are even better samples in PA-80 than Triton, all the styles in PA-80 can be changed including the factory presets. All the data is been taken from official Korg France website and “few words” and more can be learned from the manual…Thank you.
