The Korg TRITON line has been taken to extremes, with the TRITON Extreme music workstation/sampler. Introduced at the 2004 NAMM Summer show, it delivers all the features that have made the TRITON popular, plus many new sounds and enhancements.
TRITON Extreme has a generous 160 MB of wave ROM, sampled at 48 kHz. It features a broad selection of new samples, including acoustic and electric guitars, woodwind and brass instruments captured with their natural vibrato, organs, authentic choirs and an all-new concert grand piano. Also included are the entire sample sets from Korg’s best-selling Trance Attack, Orchestral Collection and Vintage Archives expansion boards, as well as the best of Korg’s Dance Extreme, Studio Essentials and Pianos/Classic Keyboards collections, plus the complete TRITON Studio ROM.
From this massive ROM, Korg has created 1,344 programs, 50 drum kits and 1,280 combinations, each consisting of up to 8 Programs, split, layered, zoned and velocity-allocated across the keyboard. In addition, General MIDI Level 2 Presets contain 256 programs and 9 drum kits.
Twin tone generators provide 120-note polyphony. In Korg’s Hyper Integrated synthesis system, each oscillator is processed with a multimode filter and multiple envelope generators for precise, accurate sound shaping. Two LFOs each offer 21 waveforms, and can be synchronized to the built-in arpeggiator, sequencer or outboard MIDI gear. 42 alternate modulation source (AMS) types and 51 modulation destinations are also provided, as well as dual polyphonic arpeggiators with 489 preloaded patterns.
