I recently purchased a Triton Pro. I believe its an awesome high tech machine, with a great display. The acustic pianos and the electronic sounds are perfect, but as usual in Korg, the electric pianos does not sound very good. Does any body have a self-designed e.piano that could share with me? I am looking for a strong sound for fast songs.

My God!

The Triton is my major synth in my whole setup, I make trance/electronic music, the pads and motion sounds are super brilliant!

The Combi's are Super, the only downside is you can only use 1 combi in sequencer mode Aargh! well i solved the problem with an Adat machine

I also got the MOSS board, SCSI and studio essentials board installed, if you know the Z1 then i don't need to explain how great it sounds the studio essentials board has very useable sounds check them out.

With V2.0 i'm using the sampler more offten, yes, still no resampling, but a nice sample slice function is added.

I compared it with the new K2500s the only thing thats better is the Piano sound Overall i like the sounds and specifications of the Triton.

Judge for yourself......

The new Triton 2.0 OS is out! It adds a couple of nice features to the sampler like time slicing, time stretching and crossfade looping. It improves some on some aspects of the operating system. It adds a couple of gimmicky features to the sequencer that most user won't care about.

Where is resampling- even your new Electribe sampler will have this!!!!! This is essential for modern sampling Korg! What about some decent quantizing options in the sequencer (like in Rolands XP, Yamahas EX and Kurzweils K series sequencers). What about adding sys ex support in the sequencer!!!!! You have it in program and combination mode- WHAT IS GOING ON? How about letting us create multi track patterns instead of just single track patterns (just for a change).

I do really like my Triton so mabey I'm sounding very critical- but after going through the added manual that comes with the new OS, I think that Korg added some features (notably to the sequencer) that we couldn't really give a shit about in general (giving us these extra fancy loop options to play intros rather than adding at least swing and groove quantizing to the sequencer??????? and sys ex support??????).

Yes no instrument will ever be perfect but Korg lets see you continue to develop this instrument in future upgrades to include the above requested features plus others. Surely they can't be impossible to implement and I congratulate you in advance if you are already working on them!

Guys&Gals! If you are happy with your Trinity, then why even consider looking for something new- Just because it's the next big thing???????

I sold my Trinity Plus for the Triton and I don't regret doing that one bit! I loved my Trinity but as far as I am concerned, the Triton has fixed up some of the Trinities 'limitations' most notably the 32 notes of polyphony (Korg were bonkers to do this to the Trinity!) and adding a sampler, fixing up the Trinity's spastic output routing scheme, adding 2 fantastic arpeggiators, improving the user interface (touchscreen) and search function, adding extra features to the sequencer (notably different loop lengths for seperate tracks and cue lists), giving extra real time control etc.

Yes as far as I am concerned, the Triton does not sound any better or worse than a Trinity. However, whilst the Trinity was awesome, the Triton has converted me back to using it's sequencer (I own Logic and Notator and whilst I use them, the Triton's sequencer is so quick to use!!!!).

Also with the Triton, you get a free high quality 2 in 6 out multi fx unit with vocoder!

Yes the Trinity offered flash ROM and 4 track hard disk recording- but these were expensive options that still didn't allow you to sample and lets be realistic in saying that 4 tracks is not all that much for the amount you paid for that option- better off buying a Roland VS840 or Korg D8 and hooking it up to the Triton. Or better still, look at the New Hot Korg D16! Team this up with a Triton, some good monitors and mics and you have a great little portable sequencing/recording set up!!

If the Trinity does it for you, then hold on to it! I knew I needed and wanted the extra features the Triton offered and that is why I traded up. Simply because the Triton came out doesn't make the Trinity any worse than it was before! And yes Korg, you guys are a bit spastic for leaving any kind of Digital I/O option for those who want it- The Trinity offered this!

Let me sum up by saying that BOTH THE TRINITY AND TRITON KICK ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
