Korg Triton Extreme 61 : stompboxjon's user review
The Triton extreme 61 is a very powerful workstation, I remember when it came out and I got my hands on it I was shocked on how “perfect” it was. Out side of some of the sounds and presets I didn’t have a simple complaint about it. It is a powerful machine that can power your whole studio.
It took some time to get used to it. It wasn’t easy, for some reason some of the options and menu’s could have been laid out a little different to make it easier and quicker to use. Seems like they didn’t follow the model from previous Triton boards and created a different path for the Extreme. I had to use the manual several times, actually almost every time for over a month I needed to crack that manual open for something different each time but basically it was for something in the menu that I couldn’t find and didn’t feel like playing hide and seek with it till I found it.
The sounds are really good, some of the things that really frustrated me on some of the presets was some of them just had to many effects already on them. I don’t like a bunch of effects on presets because it sort of turns me off to it . I like to hear them dry then work my way up with reverb and everything. If I go to use a synth that is really spacey and has a lot of reverb I could actually pass it and skip to another one when in reality that could be a great synth to use if I would have heard it with less reverb.
Overall, one of the best boards on the market or atleast it was back in 07 or 08. I had a lot of good times with it while I had it, since I have traded it back in for other gear.
