Product Description

The long-awaited rack-mount version of the Triton Music Workstation/Sampler, with all of its sound power, sampling functionality, intuitive operation, and expandability.

The Triton Rack provides all of the sound and sampling functionality of the most highly respected synthesizer/workstation in today's music scene - the Triton. In addition, this 2-space, rack-mountable unit dramatically expands the possible number of sounds, provides digital output, allows a total of 8 EXB-PCM boards to be installed, and features numerous other functions that make it the ideal choice for the musician looking for a no-compromise sound source.

Maximum number of sounds for major sonic potential
The Triton-Rack can deliver even more of the HI synthesis system sounds that were so highly acclaimed on the Triton. Fully expanded, you can have immediate access to a maximum of 2,057 programs (including 256 GM programs + 9 GM drum programs for GM Level 2 compatibility) and 1,664 combinations, each allowing up to 8 timbres to be used together. While the Triton could accommodate a maximum of 2 expansion boards, the Triton-Rack allows up to 8 boards to be installed, delivering an amazing 160 Mbytes of PCM wave memory. And the Triton-Rack features the same powerful dual polyphonic arpeggiator function as the Triton keyboard, but with an expanded memory of 328 patterns.

Check out sounds with the Audition Riff function
In the Program mode of the Triton-Rack, you can use the Audition Riff function to efficiently search the mammoth array of sounds or to check a sound that you are editing. 382 riffs appropriate for various types of sound are provided.

Sample up a storm with up to 96 Mbytes of internal memory
The 48 kHz 16-bit linear mono/stereo sampler section further expands your sound-creating possibilities. In addition to the 16 Mbytes included standard, 2 more 72-pin SIMM boards can be added, bringing the total memory capacity to 96 Mbyte (using three 32 Mbyte SIMMs). The Triton Rack already incorporates all the sophisticated functions introduced in Triton Version 2.0, with waveform editing commands such as Time Slice, Time Stretch, Crossfade Loop, and visual waveform editing that make it easy to produce breakbeats.

Time-sliced pattern data can be saved as MIDI data (SMF file) and loaded into an external sequencer. New features include the ability to export samples as .WAV and AIFF files for further editing on computer systems or use in other products (like the ElectribeİS).

Beef up your performance potential with Multi mode
In Multi mode, the Triton-Rack will function as a 16-part multi-timbral tone generator that can play back multiple tracks from an external MIDI sequencer. In addition to Program and transposition settings, you can assign and edit the powerful 5 Insert and 2 Master effects and store the full setup as a "multi" in one of 200 hundred memory locations. A multi also includes pattern, RPPR (Realtime Pattern Play/Recording), and arpeggiator settings, and the specified phrases can be played back in synchronization with an external MIDI sequencer. The Triton-Rack provides 150 preset patterns ideal for drum tracks, and 100 user patterns that allow recording, editing, or recording with the arpeggiator.

When executing the Time Slice operation, you can even automatically create patterns corresponding to the sliced samples and assign the patterns to RPPR. By time-slicing multiple rhythm loop samples that differ in tempo and simultaneously assigning them to RPPR, you can easily match these rhythm loop samples to the same tempo without changing their pitch. You can also use an external MIDI keyboard to play these patterns and control their tempo in realtime.

Extra support for digital output
The Triton-Rack provides a standard S/PDIF connector for high-quality stereo audio output (24 bit internal processing). Plus it also allows an optional EXB-DI to be installed to add a 6-channel ADAT output connector with a 48 kHz Word Clock IN, making this the ideal choice for the digital recording environment.

Expand your horizons
In addition to the freedom to install up to 8 EXB-PCM boards, three 32MB SIMM modules, the EXB-DI ADAT output connector and m-LAN board, the Triton-Rack can also accommodate the EXB-MOSS DSP synthesizer board. Add an entirely new 6-voice tone generator, which provides 13 forms of synthesis, such as analog or physical modeling, to create a truly all-in-one tone generator module. Add the EXB-SCSI SCSI interface board so you can load and save your Triton-Rack data on an external SCSI device, and load AKAI sample data from CD-ROM. Installation of all options is easy - simply open the top cover.

Features
The powerful sound and sampling functionality of the Triton, packed into a 2-space rack module.

The number of possible programs and combinations has been dramatically expanded to 2,057 programs and 1,664 combinations.

In addition to S/PDIF digital output, you can add 8 channels of ADAT-compatible output with the optional EXB-DI Digital Interface Board.

The Triton-Rack is the first Korg product to offer optional support for mLAN - the new digital network designed for musical applications.

Expandability has been boosted even further than on the Triton. A total of up to 8 PCM expansion boards can be installed, each with its own dedicated Bank for programs and combinations. You can also add up to 3 SIMM modules to expand the sampling memory to a total of 96 Mbytes.

The Audition Riff function provides 382 riffs appropriate for different types of sound, to easily try out sounds when a keyboard is not available.

Song data created on the Triton can be played back via a 3.5 in. floppy disk or SCSI device by the Triton-Rack.

4.5 out of 5 (150 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"The Triton is a true beast"
Sound: This box sounds amazing. I love it. Feature: I didn't do my home work. I assumed that it would intergrate with my 01X perfectly through MLAN...I was wrong. However the golden rule is never ass...u....me anything! It makes an ASS out of U and ME! Quality: I got mine second hand and well used and after a year of me using it and my 1 year old lately giving it a good bash I have no probs to report. Value: Once I got over the MLAN thing I love it. Manufacturer Support: I got the factory disks seny out in a jiffy! The Wow Factor: Looks the part and plays the part Overall: I'd give it a 9 but I can't get over the MLAN thing!
Style of Music: I like to give it all a go

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Product!!"
Sound: All of the sounds sound great...except any of the "authentic pianos" All of the others sound warm and full. There are great sounds for pretty much any type of music. The combinations stand out especially. Feature: Plenty of features and editing capabilities. It would be pretty much impossible for one person to use every feature this synth has. Quality: Seems to be built excellently. I bought mine used, and everything seems to be in very good shape still. Value: I think this is valued very well considering everything you can do with it. The Wow Factor: Looks pretty nice, but of course it could always be cooler. Overall: I have had this piece for about a week now, and i am just starting to skim the surface of some of the things this beast can do. Now that i have it, I couldn't imagine living without it. I would definatly replace it if i needed too because of the great sounds, and huge expansion capabilities. 8 fricken slots is awesome!
