Triton is an awesome unit. However a few short-comings are irksome to me. When sequencing what was wrong with a simple "undo" as I have been used to with Roland. Also in recording you have to work with whole measures as I see no function to rerecord with say the the 4th beat in measure 20. One more thing is to gripe about the manuals. I am a musician not a rocket scientist.

For me as an electronic/dance/hiphop producer not wanting to work on computers the Triton is a very good sounding, flexible and intuitive (touch screen!) machine although the manual could be better. Nature instruments don't sound very realistic but until now I never heard a synth with a really good guitar sound for example. I thik it's better to record a real guitar if you want that sound. But the syth sounds are great and the sequencer is packed with groove features (arpeggiators/pattern play/loop play). The sampler of V2.0 with its time slice option for drum loops is also very useful.

One of the greatest synths ever made. Very easy to use.

Here is the sound breakdown:

Pads- Timeless, rollong quality. Will never get old

Drums - superb

Strings - superb

Bass- Superb

electric guitars - BEst I have heard on any synth

Accoustic guitars- very good

Pipe organ - only decent

Piano -decent

rock organ - superb

analog sounds - superb(especially with MOSS expansion board)

Flutes - superb

Saxes- ok

choirs- superb

electric piano's - superb

Sound fx - superb

This synth has an amazing sound. Add the great MOSS/Prophecy expansion board, and you have the deepest programming synth in the business.

The touchscreen interface and the combination of real time knobs is fantastic. The effects are the best in any synth, period. Sequencer mode is very easy to get into and create songs. Efx routing is brilliant.

You can also use the Triton as an effects box for your other gear. It has inputs you can hook any instrument into.

The Triton is also a full sampler, but lacks resampling. It can be expanded to 64 megs, which is good.

The Triton also has a ribbon controller, built in vocoder, dual arppegiators, and 8 real time control knobs plus real time control knobs for tempo, gate and velocity.

Also, every single patch in the Triton is user writeable. Which means that if you don't like a patch, you can create a new one and permanently save it over the one you don't like, or any other one for that matter.

This is one heck of a synth. But here are the negatives:

1. No seperate banks for PCM expansion cards. What were you thinking Korg? In order to get the sounds from the new expansion boards, you have to overwrite existing sounds.

2. No resampling

3. Sequencer lacking sysex and certain retainment of actions.

All in all, the Triton is top notch stuff. Couple a Triton with Moss with something like a Nord lead or acces virus or REASON software and you have a setup to last you for eternity.
