What You Need to Know About Korg TRITON 1.0.1: The Perfect Reproduction of the Classic Workstation

The Wave Variation and Wave Group are the areas where Triton differs from Trinity, which are now entirely parametric. Wave Group allows the user to quantise (via internal or external software) how many semitones (a 'tone') of variation (between 0.5 and 2 semitones, offering 'flavour' controls) Triton will adopt during a single oscillator's playback. This, it is claimed, produces an effect at the boundary between two common synth timbres. Wave Variation produces multiple waveforms from the single oscillator and again can be quantised with semitones, offering slightly different sets of sounds, respectively. Wave Group and Wave Variation are best applied in tandem with a Wave Arpeggiator, offering possibilities like a bass notes from 'Dorian', for example.

Korg TRITON 1.0.1

The flexibility offered by these sounds - let's not forget, this is supposed to be Triton's flagship model - bring good news. The fact that it is sample-based, at least at the raw waveform level, helps the user to get away from the common, clichéd reverbs, especially when you consider that a good time based reverbs is still possible and a superb built-in method of choice for creating pulsating, oceanic-like reverb. The programme editor is more like a production assistant, with a dialogue box that allows the user to edit many aspects of a part, including a set of internal options for compression, saturation and flange, and a palette of various parameters ranging from glissando to soft staccato. It's a great interface and you'll often have the beat instantly but where the sound comes from is where you'll have to look, and, sometimes, grope a bit, to locate the answer. Why not just press a button? Always an option. The most interesting functions are Dynamic Variation, where the user can select between two or more ranges of the musical spectrum, and Velocity Scaling, where the user can control the relative amplitude of waveforms by velocity switching a specific factor. At the end of the day, if you think sounds are fine just the way they are, then Triton will make an excellent choice for you, though I will admit that it can take some time to get to grips with. While you do, you may enjoy its clean, open and immersive sound, as well as its extreme adaptability. Like a very enterprising neighbour, the Korg Triton has a quiet mind, but big ideas.
