I been using the prox for about 2 weeks and all I can say is tha this beauty is awsome may need some work in the pianos sounds but overall if you use the sequencer the piano sound is not a big deal, excellent special effects, user friendly, I believe that there's is no perfect workstation out there yet, but the triton came close, and for those who are bore with it, its not he machine, maybe you need some imagination and creativity. Be Good

This keybaord looms before me daily at work, but i still play it, Its the 88 key version, so of course the build is way better then the 61. The interface is good, i do wish they had more knobs for the cutoff, i hate the multifunction knobs for assignables. The "log" is cool as well. Very neat effetcs with it. The sequencer is very good, not as versital as the rm1x or the soon to be rs7000, but still good. Sounds, bells, guitar, brass, i dont need these, so its space wasted to me. Pianos are ok, but i havent found one yet that is good on any synth. Basses, some are good, but dont squeel well, or have good low end. The mos impressive is the drum kits, which are saturated with effects as well, But after i took the trition home and sampled all the drum kits out, i no longer need a triton. The touch screen is the best thing about this keyboard, very cool, later when i go home i long for my virus to have one. It does make it so easy and fast to edit, and make songs. But the sounds, if they would upgrade the sound quality, and not fill the keyboard with useless sounds, it would be cool. But for price and the price of upgrades,m its not worth it. I hate upgrades, its a roland tactic. But Snoop uses a triton so it must be cool! Hehe , Ill wait to see what the Karma is like which so far has me curious.

I don't use any sounds on this thing, just the sequencer, RPPR, arpeggiators, and sampler. Absolutely great for controlling other modules or VAs. Totally awesome as your MIDI command station...

Well, I've had my Triton since April, so I figure it's time I gave my opinion.

First of all, the sounds, which is probably the main reason to buy any instrument. I know some other reviewers have complained about the factory presets, especially for certain genres, but I've found that there is a nice cross-section of different styles, and I've found them very useful in performance.

Sounds that I've found useful have included the organs (I'm very picky about these, I'm a Hammond player), the much-maligned pianos, and the strings, brass, and woodwinds.

I've been performing live with my Triton since I bought it, and it seems sturdy enough. Still, do what I did and buy a hard case. When you're spending this much on a piece of equipment, you can't protect it enough.

I've not used the sequencer yet (I use Cakewalk at home), so I can't really say anything good or bad about it. Often I record things into ACID, so the available effects processors hasn't been a problem. If you're using your Triton at home, seriously look into some sort of multi-track recording software. You'll be able to use as many programs or combinations as you like, without worrying about fx or polyphony.

I added the MOSS board a few months ago, and that thing is KILLER! Even without getting into the non-analog type oscillators, it's kind of like a cross between a Prophet 5 and a Memorymoog; the sub-oscillator is more like the main osc on many synths, and the two main ones have a lot of features, like simultaneously available multiple waveforms and waveshaping that you usually only see on modular synths.

Other oscillator types include Ring Modulation, VPM (a type of FM), Cross Modulation, Comb Filter, Resonance, Sync, Organ (3 drawbars), Electric Piano, Brass, Reed, Plucked String, and Bowed String. The last four are 'double-size', meaning you only have one osc available. All the rest are 'single-size', you can use any two of them. The sub-oscillator is always available, as is the noise generator .

Two multi-mode filters are very analog-sounding, and the noise generator has its own filter. There are also two mixers, four lfos with 18 waveforms, five envelope generators, and all the fx and controllers the Triton normally has.

All in all, it's a very professional piece of equipment, and easily the best purchase I've made in years.

I have been using synths since 1975 and the Trition Pro is my third Korg workstation. (Previous models were the 01/W Pro and T2). There is a lot to be impressed with in this instrument. Certainly the display is the main selling point. It adds to the ease of use and availability of information to the user. Electronic pianos, organs, strings, brass and the like are all wonderful. I have one complaint and it is major: the acoustic piano samples are terribly poor. If you hold a sustained chord and let the instrument ring, it sounds completely dead and lifeless. I am so unhappy I'm considering selling the Trition Pro and getting a Kurzweil K2600XS. Can anyone who has installed the piano board in their Triton please e-mail me and say whether it is a usuable improvement?
