probaly upset some loyal korg users but this rack is pants. not that it does,nt sound good ,it does as long as the effects are running. turn the effects off and its just plain average. any of the x or 0 series does the job just as well and at a fraction of the price

Some kind of review. Nothing happens when you touch the ribbon controller on my Ob 12 even if it is set at midi controller 16.The Arp is really worth its weight in gold.Spice up may sounds. The Audition do amazing little melodies to demonstrate the tritons capabilites. Rolands 4 to Korg Tritons 2 sample per note makes a difference though.But many fat sounds in Triton too.Organs, bass and drums are excellent.

Nothing exactly groundbreaking about the triton it is essentially just a 'rompler' but it is very very good at what it does. The sounds are all brilliant, and of course the drumkits are amazing. (one word of warning once you get a triton you'll hear the triton's drumkits on almost every pop/rnb song in the charts).

And its easy to see why the triton is so widely used by proffesionals, the sound that comes out of its DA convertors is so spaciously deep yet balanced and upfront that barely any post processing is needed atall. For me this is the tritons greatest strength, the overall sound quality. It is a strange beast in some ways, the effects and filters for example are good but certainly not outstanding. If they came in a dedicated rack i certainly wouldnt buy it.

However the effects do seem to go hand in hand with the source material - creating rich beautiful textures. For me this is the mystery of the triton, its so much more than the sum of its parts, everything seems to 'come to together' in the end in a way that it really shouldnt - although again i think this is probably owing to the excellent convertors, you can even put some horrid samples into korg and get them sounding all lush and sweet.

The Triton rack is everything its cracked up to be.

It's powerful, capable, versitile and has an amazing range of sounds with outstanding quality. I have never been afforded the chance to use a Korg Triton but I'm lucky that I have purchased the Triton Rack.

The Rack has ALL of the exact same features as its keyboard counterpart so they are exactly the same.

The thing that makes this rack great - like all racks - is it's weight. It's as light as a feather and is easily carrible and accessable from any MIDI keyboard.

Which means a tone of things. It means if you go to school/tafe/uni and need to practice with a band you can just hook up to any MIDI enabled keyboard and you're off and running. This means you can have access to all your created programs that you've done at home right there in practice so you don't have to drag around a heavy workstation. it means you can run around town and gigs with it and hook up to any keyboard regardless of its quality and have the best sounds available to you. It means you can buy a CHEAP MIDI keyboard - regardless of its quality - and have the best sounds availalbe at home.

I personnally bought this rack to use with my Roland AX-7 keytar and I have a light, easy to carry set that I can run all over town and never be weighed down buy heavy equipement OR worry about getting it in and out of my car. In fact you can run around on public transport without any problems and still have the best possible weapons at your disposal.

This also means you'll take up less stage and you'll have more space for the band to move around in PLUS you wont need to carry around a durable keyboard stand.

It's a sturdy little box too - which can take a few bumps.

It is comparativly easy to use when compared to the other types of synths on the market and although its manual is a tad confusing the TRITON is easy enough to manuvor thru with the manual as a loose guide.

A really do suggest you buy 1 of these - you wont be dissapointed.

its a valuable module,u got pcm,moss,scsi for reading samples,8 exp. sound boards and also sampling.i installed 7 sound boards,moss and scsi,and its best tool for playback midi and samples live and quick studio works.the weakiest and silliest thing is the floppy drive,i linked a mo for sequences,samples,programs backup/reload storage instead.more efficient and logical!
