Product Description

It's a controller with the built-in sounds of the legendary workstation -- the Korg TRITON taktile. TRITON taktile controller feature a stylish design that projects a sense of presence, together with the same great-feeling semi-weighted keyboard that's used on synthesizers and music workstations such as the KingKORG and KROME. It's loaded with functions that make it fun to play and use, such as a touch pad inherited from the Kaossilator that lets you play melodies using just a single finger, trigger pads that let you generate chords in the key and scale of your choice and an arpeggiator that includes rhythm patterns. Of course, the taktile and TRITON taktile also delivers the functionality that you expect from a MIDI controller. It provides all of the basic controllers such as sliders and switches, and makes setup easy so you can start producing music right away. Convenience is not the only attraction of TRITON taktile; it's a MIDI controller that's full of features that will stimulate your creativity.

In addition, the TRITON taktile adds 512 sounds from the TRITON, KORG's best-selling music workstation loved by top-ranking musicians around the world. From your desktop to live stage performances, it's a USB MIDI controller that you can use in any situation.

The sounds of Korg's best-selling TRITON music workstation

With total sales of more than 300,000 units for the series, KORG's TRITON music workstation is legendary. The 512 program sounds built into the TRITON are included, specially tuned for the taktile (*3). You can register 16 of your favorite sounds for immediate recall at the touch of a switch. The sounds range from standards such as electric piano and organ to synth leads for soloing and elegant pads, making this a treasury of sounds that will stimulate your inspiration as a player. You can also control the TRITON taktile from your computer via USB MIDI as an external sound module to enhance your existing music production setup.

(*3) This is a preset sound module with adjusted sounds based on the TRITON's PCM waveforms, and only some parameters can be edited.

A compact and lightweight synthesizer that you can take anywhere

Turn on the power and start playing immediately. Since you can power-on the TRITON taktile and start playing immediately without having to wait through a lengthy start-up. This is a convenient way to hear your ideas using the internal sound module or to do a bit of practicing or playing when the feeling strikes you. Even when the TRITON taktile is not connected to your computer, you can use it stand-alone with an AC adapter or with mobile batteries (separately sold: USB 2.0 compliant DC5V 550 mA or higher). As a single-unit compact and lightweight synthesizer, it doesn't have to stay on your desk; it can be a trusty partner that goes with you everywhere, whether it's the studio or on the stage.

Use the trigger pads to easily enter chords

The touch pad located in the center of the TRITON taktile feature the Touch Scale function that was so popular on the KORG Kaossilator. Simply stroke the touch pad to generate melodies in the key and scale that you specify; you'll be able to use easy and intuitive gestures to perform musical phrases without needing advanced musical knowledge or keyboard performance skills. There's also an arpeggiator function with fifty different rhythm patterns, so you can play your software synthesizers with a single finger just as though you were using a Kaossilator.

The trigger pads placed in the right of the panel have two banks, A and B, and are also velocity-sensitive. Since the dynamics of your performance will be faithfully conveyed, your drum and percussion input will have a sense of life. The Chord Scale function automatically generates chords according to the key and scale that you specify. By using this in conjunction with the arpeggiator and the Touch Scale function of the touch pad, you'll find yourself finishing entire songs in no time at all. You can also assign chords that you yourself play, opening up endless possibilities that are limited only by your imagination.

Semi-weighted keyboard with a great playing feel

The semi-weighted keyboard featured on the KROME and KingKORG music workstations and synthesizers that are used by players around the world is also featured on the TRITON taktile. No compromises have been made in the playing feel for either the 49-key or 25-key model. You can use these keyboards not just to enter notes on your desktop music production setup, but also for real-time performance.

Touch pad that can also be used as a mouse

The touchpad can also be used as a USB trackpad, with gestures such as two-fingered vertical scrolling and tapping to click. Your productivity will be boosted since there's no need to interrupt your musical workflow.

Customer Reviews
3.5 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Controller I Wanted"
Overall: Built in sounds are great and the chord controls make them wonderful. I needed a controller and still learning how to set it up. Use is mainly for vst instruments. Kaos style pad is fun to use and same sounds used on chord pads sound different so the amount of sounds you can create is endless. Would like a more detailed manual since it is my first controller but dealing with it. I have been using a Korg Mikro so having full size keys now is also a plus.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Korg triton tactile "
Overall: Programmed sounds were great but as a control for D A W it feel short. I purchased the board at a reduced price (return) and just couldn't get it to link to my software. Tried with Reason, Personis, and the included Cubase. After almost a week of frustration I sent it back. NOTE: There was no questioning the return and I am fully satisfied with zZounds. I will continue to order from them based on the return experience .
