Korg Triton 61
The Korg Triton is a digital keyboard workstation that has preset sounds for just about every keyboard based instrument you can think of. It has the ability to record and also has two pitch benders that are each in different form. It has a 1/4 inch output to send this to an amp, and it also has a 1/4 inch out for sustain as well as a number of other outputs for various applications.

UTILIZATION

The configuration of the Triton is pretty easy to follow, but there are a lot of different things to learn about using the Triton and can take a while to figure out all the ins and outs of this powerful workstation. This being said, it is quite easy to pick between the many traditional sounds as the interface of the screen is easy to figure out. The manual is sufficient and is helpful when learning the Korg Triton.

SOUNDS

The sounds form the Triton are varied and are great for all types of music. It has your traditional sounds like different pianos and organs as well as a ton of different synth and pad sounds. All of the sounds are realistic and all sound pretty awesome to me. The Triton has a reputation for having a sound bank of great sounds.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using the Korg Triton for about three years and I have found it to be a great overall keyboard for both live and studio use. I would compare this to a Yamaha Motif, but it is hard to choose one or the other as they are both full in what they can do. I love the sounds the Triton has and it is pretty easy to use overall. The price is about right for a workstation of this type, and is probably not for the beginner because of this price. Overall, for the experienced keyboard player who wants a ton of sounds in one place this is absolutely worth a look.

Korg Triton 61
I did a lot of research by reading tons of reviews and specs before I purchased it. I knew what I was getting. Still somethings impressed me more then I expected, and again other things I was more disappointed in than expected. Overall Im extremely happy with the features.

Price paid

$1,400

UTILIZATION

Sequencer is incredibly easy to use. The most difficult thing about using the triton is learning how everything is set up. It is set up differently than other workstations that I've been using for years (ASR 10 & MPC 2000). But once you get the concepts of drum kits, programs, combis, sequencer, etc, down, things run very smoothly

I bought it used. Everything seems good. No complaints YET

SOUNDS

Sounds great. Presets are alot better than imagined. The sampling engine sounds great. Nice and clean, and can still grimey it up if need be. I think the effects are decent, could be better, and it could with out doubt use a "re-sample with effects" feature (like the Triton Studio or ASR 10).

OVERALL OPINION

Im still learning it. So it will be a while before I can move to the love stage. I can see myself down the line loving this piece, but not until after I know it like the back of my hand (like my ASR 10). Once I get to the point where I dont need to consult the manual, or even think about what I have to do for a specific result, then I think I could learn to love it.

Triton 61 bought in 2002 for features you do not go back on it.
I think (for me) it's the best investment I could do at the time.

UTILIZATION

Super intuitive, touch screen, awesome at the time in fact I just had a motive XF7 and frankly it lacks the tactile serious ....
I never read the manual and I am broke !!!!! sounds very good to say anything especially in "combi" card but moss is required!!

SOUNDS

The top of the newt does not leave indifferent we like it or not ...
even now it is a monster.
I think he's disgusted holders "trinity" because exit too early
And especially with a technology for the era that destroyed everyone ... now is the "KRONOS"
The Triton has everyone agrees
was the heyday of the "workstation"

OVERALL OPINION

I tjrs my Korg Triton, which is coupled to a Audity 2000, "EMU" and a pattern XF7 is simply awesome

Korg Triton 61
Trs a good synth with a keyboard to the touch of trs good quality (at least my taste). The sounds proposed by default are impressive by their quality and number. This is a synth workstation complte intgrant squenceur an in-house, a sampler, a arpgiateur, many effects (compressors, reverbs, delay, etc ...) with excellent quality.

UTILIZATION

The doc is complte trs. APRS regarding the handling of the "bte" and many a request forcment few hours of use. This is not a "toy" and face the multitude of possibilities it seems natural to have to spend time in order to master this synth.

SOUNDS

The sounds are plentiful and suit a variety of musical styles. Personal I was used primarily for these layers of synths (Trance) but I could see many groups in various musical styles using a Triton. APRS is obvious that this synth is not all there today rcent and probably much better on the market but a good balance of high quality sounds trs .

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for nine years ... This is the first real synth that I bought and cost me a sweet era ... but I would do without this choice hsiter.

UTILIZATION

SOUNDS

Trs good ...

OVERALL OPINION

APRS prsence several years, the Triton is an excellent synth far from being deprecated ... If you are looking for acoustic sounds, it's good and it's not the top step him that he must look ... everything scratches, piano, brass, it's really rough, but acceptable on a scne (but not in a compound pro). but cons, level ground, strings, basses, there is excellent. MOSS card is mandatory when you have this synth is not having a ...... crime! :-) In fact, all sounds electro, electronic hacking original sounds and will be able RALIS grace this card, and it increases enormously and much of the sound quality of your card without the Triton .... It becomes a simple workstation capacity to limit council .... I also purchased a card to replace the piano preset trs trs existing poor quality ...
Finally, still NEWS workstation for a quality price ratio trs Hon! MOSS think the map ...

Korg Triton 61
Triton Classic 61 key
A polyphony of sufficient live (without sequencer)
A plethora of sounds (I must have at least 2000!)

UTILIZATION

Super easy to use thanks to the touchscreen. Still, should be husked manual thoroughly.
Using the performance mode is great thought and I find it regrettable that there are only eight shares in this mode
Only the arpeggiator seems very complicated to program (unless programmed to chance ...)

SOUNDS

The sounds are generally great. Notament thanks to the many effects of good quality.
Saw the 5 insert effects. In performance mode, it makes sacred services when using several sounds used to restructure the different effects.
It's true that the pianos are very limited (to be nice), the strings too varied, and acoustic sounds, there's good and bad.
In association with Roland, the sonic palette expands staggering!

OVERALL OPINION

I bought it in 2000 and the only live with.
I did not need to try other since I panache with other machines (01w D70 and soon X7) so my palette of sounds is well covered.
The only big flaw is the storage via SCSI. it's handling more time and read / write are long ... If it again, I waited for the Triton Extreme before buying because of that.

Korg Triton 61
Hi I will not dwell on the subject, just donenr my opinion, and at first I had a lot of synth general and all the brands.

UTILIZATION

This is the top level ergonomics with a small problem, the change of sound on stage should have been even easier but hey, it's worth 10/10

SOUNDS

The pros: the organs are very good, the strings and brass, synths in general.
the -: especially the rhodes pianos, the lead missing potato.

The effects are very good to my taste, at least well enough for a synth.

OVERALL OPINION

So I have this beast that seems still be huge, and frankly if there are not happiness, I think you have to question, because when you see some guys making music with spoons ...

Beezoonours's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Korg Triton 61
Good features, we will not extend, it is available everywhere ....
For my part I have a Triton Pro (slightly larger)
The only weakness I found in the characteristics, the number of keys "stop" mode RPPR on a Triton Pro and ProX (I know, it's technical), I had spoken to the time on TritonHaven.
Otherwise it's all good! The knobs, ribbon nice, a good joystick (solid saw my use), six outputs ....
The only thing that has not aged is the SCSI port, it is clear that it is not USB. Vi Ah, another major weakness compared to newts following: no hard drive, so you need to load your samples at each ignition ...

UTILIZATION

As well tell you right away: my book is horny, erased, torn ... But now it is really rare that I open it.
Editing of sounds does not seem very complex (at the same time it's my first REAL synth editable after Roland XP10) and worth the trouble to look.
By flat against the mapping of samples (fair) and the sequencer (yuuuurk), but I think any musician no masochist turns to his computer for that.
Otherwise, the beautiful touch screen simplifies the task quite a lot for editing.

SOUNDS

So it's especially good that I wish to speak ...
For my part, I like the sounds grimey, the NIN, Aphex Twin, Squarepusher ...
I transferred all sounds "realistic" and now my Triton is composed almost sounds as characters, created from scratch or by torturing presets.
So much to say right away that I have not managed to make great filter effects analos hot, but for everything else .... SONNE this synth! And I insist heavily on it! You can safely do so screaming, moaning, screaming, cooing, purring, crying ... Combi mode, synth waves more than adequate, the effects hallucinations, four LFOs, give you plenty of opportunities to make big sound or sound that zarb squeaky fart and burp. Seeking, plenty of effects and features that you can turn to the drill, the feedback, the parasite, etc ...
So yes, it's a ROMpler (I said that I have no éextension or MOSS), but hey, to stop spitting on it, it can do a little of everything and a lot more than that, we can make zarb, electronica, etc., on a ROMpler!
I add to what I found the aftertouch (essential for my game) more than adequate.

OVERALL OPINION

Ralalah my Triton is a solid love story ...
As strong as my lower back, which they start to complain!
at the time, I remember too that I had tested other, but for me it was sure it was him and no other. I think in retrospect to have been close to two years to exploit 80% of possibilities, but hey, hey, this is my first REAL synth, again!
I love its effects 7, the ribbon, its outputs (which prevents the sound engineer farts more cable than is necessary ... for the record, the first question I always balance it, " the distortion is normal? ")
I do not like his sequencer, sound samples and mapping ... that his successors (studio, extreme ...) are so attractive!
One more thing: there is a community ULTRA ACTIVE Tritonhaven on, among other sites, which allow beginners and confirmed to move faster
Today, I confess, I am reluctant to sell it to relieve my lower back and to turn to a keyboard and a micromodular ion or other microQ or something like that .... But I confess that I am very afraid to take the plunge! We will see in the future!

See tech sheet

UTILIZATION

Trs simple.
Manuel trs clear. See more at TRITONHAVEN for more.

SOUNDS

Sounds: incredible beauty.
It has everything.
To those who say that the piano is not good. Not true: It is good (they are good).
(I have a Yam CLP920, so I can compare.)
Effects: Whoah.
The keyboard enjoyable, soft

Sound prefried: MAGIC GUITAR !!!!!

OVERALL OPINION

1 month

Plus: Touchscreen

I had the X3 that I regret. So I turn to the CLASSIC to be found on the same stamp. It's still 10 times better.

Q / P: 900 euros with OCCAZ 64Ram, PCM04 and SCSI card.
There's nothing really to say is TOP.
I have long hsit with el TRITON LE. For the same price I OCCAZ slices for the CLASSIC

Yes, the same choice without a doubt.

youmolobors's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Korg Triton 61
Hello everyone.
I just give an overall opinion on the machine.

notice to critic of korg! the newt (base so) is a highly versatile machine, used by many groups (spyro gira, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea in addition to the Fender Rhodes as well as many other artists) c it is still not closed out of interest. pianos are not top it's true but I personally sample of a Steinway concert and sound that takes up much space, but there is a tear vraiment.il superb bass among others for running jazz walkings c excellent.je is doing the scene for 20 years and I used the roland yamaha, korg, and I'm in a long time and I would not change what is plus.pour price, a member is cheap, but it's not a good Bontempi not, let us put things in perspective.

In conclusion, you have a great bike for the price, you can go without fear.

UTILIZATION

Config not very complicated.

editing is reserved for programmers (in my opinion).

the manual is very simple, quick start for the scene with the original sounds.

SOUNDS

The effects are basics, should not be too angry to that side.
biien keyboard reacts to velocity and aftertouch.

I find the sounds of hammond b3 not too bad on stage that also requires the fait.le piano (with a good sound engineer anyway).

OVERALL OPINION

I used the last 2 years.

value for money more than correct anything to say.
