I'm new to the whole synth world, so I'd love any input from people who do.
Which is better for jazz gigs?
Which has the most capability to creat your own individual sound?
Which has the better acoustic piano sound?

Ha! you just beat me to it Martin. I was about to suggest the same. The M3 is indeed a much better comparison. btw, good to see you back. where have you been?
You might want to demo the Kurz PC3X against the Korg M3-88, not the M50.

Yeah you'd have to compare vs the M3 88..
not necessarily a PC3 vs M50...mainly because the M50 wasn't exactly made to be at the PC3 level of competition...
The M3 I'd say is at that level...then it becomes what you as an individual get out of it personally

thanks for your advice, i just sold my M50 to buy a PC361....great job on Animoto, i picked that up a while back...Zero-G is a favorite...
Kurzweil is the answer to all your answers. M50 is a lower budget synth, sure is capable, but it's not on the same level as Kurzweil is.

I use both a Korg Triton and Radias. Most of my music is purely synth-based and it's easy to create the sounds I'm looking for with both, especially the Radias with all the individual knobs. Someone in this thread mentioned that Korg sounds are "processed," however, I'd prefer to say they are "finished" and they sound good in a mix or live. Obviously you can always remove the effects if you like. A friend of mine has an M3 which offers some outstanding acoustic and synth sounds. I'm amazed with the pads, leads and EFX he's created, all without the optional EXB Radias board. Of course the new Kronos is phenomenal with its selection of synth engines, but that's way out of my price range.
However I have not had a Korg, wonder what it would give me that I can't come up with already. I am having some trouble getting the exact synth sound I am looking for but maybe I have not put it together yet. So what is Korg's real forte, what does it do well?
