        Vacuum tube processing, USB audio CD burning and data sharing, CompactFlash data storage, digital I/O, and an incredible array of sounds!

        More than meets the eye

        Beneath the cool blue exterior of the Korg TRITON Extreme 88-Key Workstation lurks a red-hot 160MB of clean, crisp 48kHz wave ROM -- 5 times the ROM of the classic TRITON! This massive ROM includes sizzling new samples -- expressive guitars (both acoustic and electric), woodwind and brass instruments captured with true natural vibratos, stellar organs, authentic choirs and an all-new concert grand piano are only a few of the highlights. TRITON Extreme also includes the entire sample sets from the best selling Trance Attack, Orchestral Collection, and Vintage Archives expansion boards; the best material from the Dance Extreme, Studio Essentials, and Pianos/Classic Keyboards collections; and, of course, the complete TRITON Studio sample set.

        Mounds of Sounds

        When it comes to sounds, the TRITON Extreme is a treasure trove, delivering an out-of-the-box palette of sounds that is second to none. The preload data -- created by the top programmers in the game -- includes an incredible 1,334 programs and 50 drum kits. Add to that another 1,280 combinations, each composed of up to 8 programs, split, layered, zoned, and velocity-allocated across the keyboard. We're still not done; additional banks of GM level 2 presets contain 256 programs and 9 drum kits. If you wanted to spend a mere 10 seconds checking out each preloaded sound, be prepared to add some overtime to your 8-hour day!

        Unchained sound creation horsepower

        Twin tone generators combine to pump out a generous 120 notes of polyphony. Korg's acclaimed hyper integrated synthesis engine provides breathtaking audio quality and an amazing degree of sound editing control. Each oscillator is processed through a multimode filter and multiple advanced envelope generators for precise sound shaping. Each of the 2 LFOs offers 21 waveforms, and each LFO can be synced to the arpeggiator, sequencer, or to your other MIDI gear. Plus, you can breathe new life into your sounds using 42 alternate modulation source (AMS) types and 51 modulation destinations. Supercharge your TRITON extreme by adding 6-voices of DSP modeling (stolen from the legendary Korg Z1) with the optional MOSS (EXB-MOSS) and leave everyone else eating dust.

        Dual polyphonic arpeggiators can spit out machine-gun cascades of notes, hold down a groove, or generate a simple acoustic guitar picking pattern. 489 arpeggiator patterns come preloaded.

        Sizzling sampling

        Without equal as a synthesizer, TRITON extreme is also a robust 16-bit, 48kHz sampler. Korg's exclusive open sampling system unlocks the power and benefits of sampling from every mode. This opens the door to creatively resampling your TRITON Extreme performances -- including performances enhanced by the sequencer playback and the arpeggiators. Auto-setup functions automatically optimize multiple parameters for a variety of sampling situations. By far, one of the most important features of the TRITON extreme's sampling engine is in track sampling, where you can sample audio directly into the sequencer as it plays. The possibilities are endless, but now you can add vocal lines, guitar solos, and other audio performances to your sequenced songs! Finally, you can sample or resample directly to CompactFlash or Microdrive media. Resampled songs saved to media can be converted to audio and burned to CD via USB.

        Expandable to 96MB, TRITON Extreme ships with 16MB of sample memory, which is conveniently added through a pop-open hatch on the front panel. A complete set of grid-assisted sample editing tools is provided -- including time slice, loop, truncate, and time stretch functions. TRITON Extreme is compatible with WAV, AIFF, AKAI S1000/S3000 and KORG format sample data. Advanced conversion load allows AKAI programs to be loaded into a new program or multilevel combination with the filter settings, envelope settings, and velocity switching parameters preserved for enhanced compatibility.

        Exhilarating effects

        Korg's new tube-driven Valve Force circuitry can be used as an insert effect or on the final outputs, adding just the right amount of warmth or snarl to your sound. You can even sample an external sound through the Valve Force circuit to impart "tube" quality to the sound. Valve Force has proven itself in the ESX-1 and EMX-1 Electribes. The enhanced version in the TRITON Extreme provides that same fullness of tone and also incorporates an ultra boost element designed to punch up the low end without muddying up the sound. In addition to Valve Force, TRITON Extreme also dishes out a generous serving of 5 Insert effects, 2 stereo master effects as well as a master EQ effect for 8 simultaneous effects. Multiple timbres can be routed to the same insert effect, and you can chain insert effects together to create outrageous custom multi-effects. Master effects can run side by side or in series for maximum flexibility. Effect parameters are freely editable, can be modulated in realtime, and are saved with the sound. Insert effects draw from a deep well of 102 effect types, and there are 89 master effect types. Effects can be applied to both internal and external sounds, even as a sound is being sampled. By resampling an effect laden performance you can free up effects and use them over and over.

        Stay in Control

        How do you rein in a beast with this much power? In addition to its mighty and intuitive TouchView display panel, TRITON Extreme provides an array of unique realtime controls, including a joystick, ribbon controller, and 2 assignable switches. 4 realtime control knobs can switch between Valve Force parameters (input trim, ultra boost, tube gain, output level), sound editing functions (cutoff, resonance, EG-intensity and release), or any 4 parameters of your choice -- including controlling external MIDI gear. The back panel accommodates multiple pedal types that can be assigned to a variety of functions.

        Beyond sequencing

        TRITON Extreme is one daring and dangerous performance instrument, and it's also an amazing compositional tool. 16 tracks, 200 songs, and 200,000 notes are just the beginning. Step time, real time, looping, and pattern-based recording modes allow you to capture your musical ideas your way. Sequencing is so much more than just record and playback, and TRITON Extreme delivers the tools you need to polish your songs into gemstones. Quantize functions tighten up your timing or add swing to a steady beat. 24 tone adjust parameters let you quickly edit the timbre assigned to any track without exiting the sequencer, and leave the original program untouched. Sys Ex recording allows you to automate your mix in new and creative ways—muting tracks, soloing others, loading new effect programs during different sections, and more. TRITON Extreme also uses song "templates" to give you a head start when laying down tracks. Each template assigns timbres to each track, assigns and routes effects, and can even offer up a variety of rhythm patterns to get you going. 16 song templates, each tuned to a different musical style, are preset and you can also create 16 all your own, eliminating repetitive steps when you want to get your ideas down.

        If you'd like to work on your masterpiece in smaller chunks, you can compose individual songs for the verse, chorus and bridge etc.; the cue list function allows you to string these individual parts together. Once you have decided on the right order -- and you can try a number of versions -- simply convert the cue list into a single song. You can also create your hits from even smaller building blocks. With Korg's realtime pattern play and record (RPPR) function, short sequenced patterns can be assigned and played back from individual keys on the keyboard.

        Behind the scenes muscle

        Its not just what's up front that counts. The TRITON Extreme's back panel is decked out with all the trappings a modern synth should have. In addition to the main left and right outputs, there are 4 assignable individual outputs to send your sound where you want it. 2 audio inputs with adjustable gain and mic/line level switching allow you to sample from a wide range of sources, as well as access the internal effects. Digital in and out is provided in S/PDIF optical format. Here you'll also find the CompactFlash media slot, MIDI connectors, and the damper/footswitch/footpedal jacks.

        Welcome to the USB universe

        We saved the best for last. 2 USB connection ports open up a world of possibilities. By connecting a CD-RW drive to USB Port A, completed songs (once they have been resampled as WAV files) can be burned to CD as audio. This connection also allows you to use external USB data storage units with the TRITON Extreme. USB Port B allows an external computer to access the media in the CompactFlash slot, allowing you to share files back and forth.

        I've always loved playing piano and got quite good at it so I decided to step it up a notch and buy a syth/workstation. I love this thing to death. I play it everyday for hours. This thing has more bells and whistles than you'll ever need and has an overwhelming sense of KORG quality. This keyboard feels, plays, and sounds like a million bucks. It's absolutely amazing in every aspect. I love it to death! At first I was debating between this and the roland phantom but I'm glad I chose the KORG because the touchscreen navigation on this thing is really revolutionary. This is the last workstation you'll need for many years to come. It's an awesome toy, an essential tool, a great investment, and a hell of a lot of fun. You won't regret buying it! The only thing about it is it's surprisingly heavy, but I suppose that has to do with the fact that its jam packed with high tech circuitry (which reminds me, that valve force tube is awesome) and its made of strong materials. Anyways the bottom line is: This keyboard rules.

        I have the Korg Triton Extreme 76. The only thing extreme about this keyboard is it's ability to confuse and discourage you. I bought this keyboad to add flavor to my mix but i also wanted to use the seqencer to create drum patterns. I've had the thing for about 4 months now and i haven't got a single decent drum pattern out of it. The drum hits are randomly scattered throughout the banks, across the keys. so you have no idea where the snares or kicks are at. there is a manual included that has a list of all the sounds, but it's not helpful at all, since the sound names are not informative. So basically you have to go scan through thousands of sounds looking for one half decent one (which there are not as many as you would think) and then once you do find it, you select it. So then you open up the sequencer and go to play your sound but it's completely different because the sequencer automatically throws a bunch of effects on it. i removed all the effects and it still sounded completely different. this keyboard is a hoax. it's designed so that people shopping for a keyboard will try it out in the store and think it sounds great, and they bring it home think it's all good because "oh it will take some time to get used to it and figure things out", but by the time they realize that they will never get used to or figure anything out, it's too late to return it. I wonder how many people out there have this keyboard just sitting there collecting dust. I was really blown away when i couldn't even find a decent preset drum pattern. Even the old Tritons had plenty of good ones. As for sounds- the strings are great, brass is pretty good, piano is fairly decent, but i will tell you- you must use an external sequencer becuase the one on board is just too much too handle, unless you have a gift for effect routing, good luck. I would just try something else like Roland. Ask them to let you make a quick song before you buy it. I'll definitely be getting a softsynth and Reason or Kontact or something. IF you are using this striktly to perform, then it will do the trick. no fears. just don't try to write your masterpiece with it.

        creative bliss

        By Craig-L6idC

        from Chickasha, Oklahoma

        If you are looking for a keyboard to be a creative tool which allows you to make original background tracks, as well as give great live sounds, you don't have to look any further. This machine is not complicated to learn, and the amount of sounds it gives you right out of the box will keep you happy for a long time. I found it to be a little tricky at first to find an eq setting that would give a nice warm sound. (I was used to Kurzweil and Roland keyboards). If you can play, and want to write and arrange, this is the keyboard for you. If I wear out my Triton, I'll just go get another one or maybe look at the Oasis.

        AWSOME!!!

        By abel the lion

        from corpus christi, tx

        This puppy is one bad momma! I bought it and have absolutely no talent, with this puppy I have begun a solo project that has been getting all kinds of compliments, now I know this is not due to my talent so that means that even if you have no skills this baby can make you sound like a pro, it has so many sounds, plenty of effects, you can sample I mean you name it, it is a recording studio in a box, plus if the sounds aren?t enough for you it also is a sweet midi controller, so get some software and go to town. My friend has the triton studio and I played around on it and knew triton was the end all be all of awesome keyboards. So when I saw the extremes with its beautiful blue lit tube I knew this was the one for me. If you have the money to drop and want a piece that will make you sound good period then this is for you.

        Impressive!... with learning curve

        By DrumDirt

        from Lyndeborough, NH

        As a creator for educational film scores/backdrops etc the Triton is a very versatile tool with features that can distract you for hours. I had some noise issues when I first received the keyboard and discovered that I needed more memory to really push the envelope?I highly recommend purchasing right up front. It is also setup so that you can easily start playing right out of the box and then dig deeper and deeper as your patience or talent allows. Great board overall!

        Simple interface, amazing keyboard

        By Anonymous

        from Undisclosed

        The Korg Triton Extreme, in my opinion, has a simpler interface than comparable keyboards such as the yamaha motif es8 and the roland X8. my friend owns a motif and although the interface wasn't too difficult to figure out, the smaller screen of the motif made navigation slower than on the triton extreme's touch screen. i also played around with the roland x8 at the local music store, and although the color screen was bright and gorgeous, i found the interface to be cluttered and confusing.i love how the keys feel, and the variety of all the sounds.the only thing i didn't like at first was the acoustic piano sounds, but they were really easy to edit and change and now sound perfect.overall, it's a great keyboard and is extremely versatile.

        from Wilmington, California

        I just recieved delivery of my Korg 88 key triton extreme, to say the least this machine does it all. In addition to the synth voices which are almost limitless it is a workstation. I enjoy my Triton and eager to get to the keys and noodle with 1000's of voices. I just added the EXB-Moss board and have added additional vintage voices

        A perfect keyboard made on Earth

        By browny

        from Washington

        I have the 88 and the 61 models. Why? Simply because there is nothing that could compare to the Triton Extreme. I do not mean that other pro keyboards are bad. What I mean is that Triton Extreme is unique, top-notch, unbelievable, lovable, dreamable, amazing, a real eye-catcher, a superduper instrument! You need to hear more ,guys?

        This review is directed only at the authenticity of piano, organ and other traditional keyboard voices replicated by Triton Extreme 88. The Extreme 88 makes most of my vintage boards obsolete for recording projects since it is extremely difficult, and sometimes impossible, to tell the real thing from the Triton's voices (especially Wurlitzer A200 electric piano, Hohner D6 Clavinet and any Hammond or Farfisa organ whether miked and amped or direct in)and the Triton is a breeze in the studio. The Rhodes electric piano voicings aren't as convincing but close enough. Same goes for the acoustic piano voices of which there are plenty to work with. Bonus: For those old enough to remember, there are even Mellotron inspired voices (ex.,Strawberry Flute) that are brilliant.
