Korg Trinity Plus
This is a digital synthesizer, with a 32 polyphony and pitch, modulation, sustain controllers. The device is also a MIDI controller as are most digital synths. There is an incredibly wide variety of digital synths. These sounds can be updated regularly. Another cool feature of this synth is the digital touch screen. This makes navigating the machine far easier. This machine is compatible with Logic and most other DAWs. It can be updated pretty regular and the computer and touch screen can both be used to edit the effects.

UTILIZATION

This isn't a particularly simple synth to use, but like most, it can be used effectively after a lot of practice. The setup is anything but simple, as there is a lot of effects routing that needs to be done, but as far as getting it going in the first place, I don't think it's too difficult. The manuals (yes, there are about 5) will explain how to run every feature. It's actually quite a nuisance to get set up, this is the main reason why I get so easily frustrated with these things.

SOUNDS

These sounds are definitely not my favorite types of sounds. I prefer analog, and analog replications, when it comes to synths. That being said, the sheer range of sounds available on this thing is pretty amazing, and considering how easy it is to custom edit effects, the results can be rather impressive. The machine is capable of combining about 8 mono or 4 stereo input effects, as well as adding basic overall effects like modulation and reverb. My main complaint, though, is that the reverb sounds horrible. Most digital reverbs will be less than impressive but this one is abysmal. Luckily I have other reverb options. As long as you know what sounds to avoid (there's too many to list), I think that most people could be happy with this thing if they are interested in having a versatile digital synth. But be forewarned; none of these sounds are really that great. As far as realism goes, it's not very impressive. It is, however, more touch sensitive than most digital keyboards in general, let alone synths.

OVERALL OPINION

I don't really like the large amount of setup that it takes to get this thing working. I'm also not crazy about how long it takes to program and sift through the keyboard finding good sounds. I think that this would be more effective in the hands of somebody who knows exactly what they are looking for in a digital synth, which I must confess I don't always. I've tried a lot of digital synths, and this is probably one of the better ones I've tried. Because of that, I'm inclined to give it a high score, because I know that for people who love these things, this is definitely one to get excited about.

See the information.

UTILIZATION

I do not have the manual. And I gladly pass. I used the M1 and T3. I also used a time Wavestation. We find downright logic Korg. The page order, the parameters ... The touch screen is OK. This is my first synth with such an interface, so it's nice to priori. I stopped for 90 years in terms of new gear. From 90-2000 years, I have bought or bartered as used gear. So my opinion on the Trinity and the programming mode is a little offbeat.

SOUNDS

We find again the spirit Korg: it is even questionable whether the samples M1 and T series have not been reinstated, among others ... It is possible that this is close to 01W, but I can not comment, I've never had this model. The difference is the resolution: 48 kHz, and that means very much. The sound is very crystalline, medium less than previous models, at least this is the perception I have. The realism of imitative sounds better, of course, but without interest. Personally, I turn towards synthetic waves, and filters, and finally resonant! well this "fact". I went to a bank of sounds found on the net: "access". Terrible, real synth sounds. I use this keyboard in a melodic power metal band, so feel rather "classical-symphonic" on Manigance or Stratovarius. The Trinity is the highly job. As usual with Korg sound has its place in the mix, through well, without interfering or overflow. Naturally, it is surrounded (racks and other keyboards). The sound palette is rich and consistent. Side "more" embedded in the beast Prophecy. Although significant, I who had the Prophecy in question, I am very happy to find it. With the touch screen, it is much easier to program, even though we lost a few knobs that dueling ...

OVERALL OPINION

I'm really comfortable with this synth. The HD player was replaced with a USB drive. OK, but beware, each key is formatted with a volume of 1.44 megabytes, such as floppies!! And it fills up fast, believe me ...
The sequencer, I do not know: I use a laptop on stage with FL9 as centralization noon.
This is not a "transcendent" keyboard, but it holds great sound spectrum and its use soon proved very musical. And it shows very good surprises and excellent behavior in purely synthetic sounds. What a real synth ...
If I keep it, I will try to find him MOSS extension that adds the Z1.
