******New to the world of synthesizers******
Great, but dont ever forget what you did before you came here. MUSIC... try your best to use the Motif 8, dont look to the side at other keyboards and their features....
Gear lust... a serious habitual disease in the electronic world. get your stuff and dont look back. The Motif is great but each board has its own unique features. Big deal. Return to making music and people smile.
