Korg Triton

From Academic Kids

The Korg Triton is a workstation synthesizer featuring digital sampling and sequencing created by Korg. All Tritons use Korg's HI Synthesis tone generator. They are available in several models and various upgrade configurations.

The Tritons

All Tritons are based on the so-called "Classic" Triton. The "Classic" Triton was named "Pro" when configured with 76 keys and "Pro X" with 88 keys. Otherwise its functions and features were the same. The Triton Studio could be fitted with an optional hard drive and CD-R/W drive. All models except the Triton Rack and KARMA are available in 61, 76 and 88-key configurations. They can also be upgraded with increased sample RAM as well as Triton expansion boards for additional sounds. The Triton Rack was not a keyboard-based synthesizer, rather it was a rack-mountable model, requiring a stand-alone keyboard to control it via MIDI. The Triton "Classic" and Studio boasted touch screen capabilities. The Le, KARMA, and Rack, however, used a more conventional display.

The Korg KARMA was released in 2001 with the Triton synthesis technology but without the sampling functionality. It instead included the more specialised KARMA music system. It was only available in a 61-key version.

In 2004 Korg released the Triton Extreme, which boasted many of the features of the Studio models plus the addition of many previous Triton expansion boards, giving it a broad range of sound. Also featured in the Triton Extreme was Valve Force circuitry, allowing for a warmer, tube amp-like sound. Unlike the previous Tritons, which were white-silver, the Extreme boasted a deep blue color. Like the Triton "Classic" and Studio, the Triton Extreme includes a touch screen interface, along with the usual knobs and buttons.

The Korg Triton line may be seen as the direct descendants of the previous Korg Trinity line of workstations. They are aesthetically and functionally very similar. The Trinity had similar naming conventions with the Triton Classic, with Pro and Pro X being designated to models featuring 76 and 88 keys respectively. The Korg Triton are most comparable to the Yamaha Motif and Roland Fantom.
