Korg Triton LE 88
The Korg TRITON Le 88 Music Workstation Keyboard delivers the breathtaking sounds and powerful performance you expect from a TRITON but at a price that won't break the bank. Korg trimmed some of the extra features of the hit-making TRITON line to make the more affordable Le but kept all the good stuff: the Hyper Integrated (HI) synthesis engine, powerful multi-effects, multiple outputs, dual arpeggiators, 16-track sequencer, and realtime controls. The Le 88 also has a smart layout and efficient interface as well as Korg's top-of-the-line 88-note graded-hammer action and 16MB stereo Concert Grand Piano sample set. It's also loaded with over 1,000 killer sounds and has the knobs and joysticks that let you send each and every sound into new dimensions! Or you can use the power of the TRITON Le to roll your own unique tones. Either way, you'll be pumping out some of the freshest sounds around!
TRITON Le's extra-large 32MB PCM ROM (borrowed from the TRITON) is packed with 425 multisamples and 413 drum samples. They cover a broad palette of instruments ranging from indispensable standards like piano, guitar, brass, strings, and tuned percussion to the most modern synth sounds that are perfect for dance grooves. The TRITON Le 88 also offers an additional 16MB stereo Concert Grand Piano sample set for a total of 48MB of PCM ROM. High-quality 48kHz sampling ensures that every detail of every sound is richly preserved.
The TRITON Le features both high-quality sounds selected from TRITON's preload data and an assortment of Programs and Combinations voiced especially for the instrument. In addition to 448 onboard programs (64 program locations are also available for your own sound creations/edits), 128 programs and 9 drum kits (compatible with the GM Level 2 sound map) are included, allowing the TRITON Le to be GM compatible.
384 Combinations, each consisting of up to eight Programs, include richly layered sounds, splits, velocity layers, and controller-assigned combinations that will give your music guaranteed impact. Customized sounds and original can be saved as one of the 512 programs/384 combinations/24 drum kits. You can back these up onto SmartMedia cards or an external hard drive to create enormous libraries of your personal sounds.
You get one stereo insert effect, two master effects, a stereo 3-band EQ, and a mixer section for effects routing. With 89 different effects types, it delivers the same high-quality processing found in the TRITON; including realtime modulation of many effect parameters and the ability to sync to MIDI Clock or to the internal sequencer. Effects can be set for each Program, Combination, and Song, enabling you to perfect your sound down to the last detail and without the need for any additional gear.
A full-featured 16-track, 200-song sequencer (up to 200,000 notes) delivers the same level of functionality found in the TRITON and KARMA Music Workstations. You can record in realtime, use step sequencing, plus lots of powerful editing tools.
The Cue List lets you assemble your song from separate elements (Verse, Chorus, Break, etc.), and even convert them back into a single song for further recording or editing. Powerful features allow consecutive playback, changes in structure, and rearranging the sections of your song. 150 preset drum patterns and 100 user patterns, a Track Loop function, and even a Template Song function with style shortcuts make music production fast, easy and efficient.
Your sequence data can be saved as SMF format 0 or 1, making it simple for you to exchange data with other sequencers or sequencing software. Data can be saved or exchanged via SmartMedia. Data can also be saved or exchanged via SCSI devices when the optional EXB-SMPL Sampling Upgrade is installed.
