About This Keyboard

WOW! This Triton Extreme is in very good working order with one exception. We can not get the CF card reader to work but the USB port works well and everything else seems to be perfect. All of the knobs and buttons work perfectly and there are no broken or chipped keys and they all play well. The touch screen works and is bright and clear. Cosmetically it is in good condition with most of the scratches confined to the end panels. It has a whooping 96 megs of added sampling ram. You will also get a power cord. I wish my little webcam could pick up the audio better because this keyboard sounds awesome! I have included a lot of pictures and a video and I think you can just let them speak for themselves.

The Triton Extreme in General

In 2004, Korg released the Triton Extreme, which has many of the features of the Studio (such as the entire PCM ROM from the Studio model) plus 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. It also has new PCM data that is not available on any other Triton models including improved pianos and acoustic guitars giving it a broad range of sound, 160 MB total compared to the 32 MB ROM of the classic Triton. Also featured in the Triton Extreme is Valve Force circuitry, using a vacuum tube and an analog ultra gain transistor to allow for warmer, guitar amp-like sounds for more extreme analog overdrive/distortion sounds, and is especially useful for warm luscious pads and organs, and adding depth and realism to acoustic sounds, especially piano. Unlike the previous Tritons, which were white-silver, the Extreme boasts a deep blue color. Like the Triton "Classic" and Studio, the Triton Extreme includes a touch screen interface, along with the usual knobs and buttons. It can use a USB cable to interface with a PC, allowing exchange of samples, sound programs, sequences, and other Triton-compatible files through an installable Compact Flash card. Compact Flash and micro drive cards up to 8 GB are supported, negating the need to sample directly to RAM. The USB port also allows control over software synths and host applications over MIDI. However, unlike the Classic, Studio, and Rack versions, the Extreme can not be fitted with sample expansion boards due to the expansion ROMs having been pre-installed. However, it is compatible with the MOSS board, as is up to 96 MB of sample RAM. Also missing are SCSI and mLAN. Also, the ADAT option was not available, but there were optical stereo S/PDIF ins and outs, although it is impossible to use the Valve Force Tube with them. Also, there is another USB Type A connector, which can be used to connect a USB hard drive or a CD-R drive for making music CDs and loading AKAI format sample libraries. The sequencer was upgraded with in-track sampling.

It is important to remember that when buying a used keyboard it may not operate or look exactly like a new one. Used keyboards develop wear over time that can cause such items as function buttons, knobs, sliders etc. to fail to operate as smoothly or easily as when they were new. Our technician does check these items and if they are deemed unusable they are replaced but some function buttons may require more pressure or manipulation to make the appropriate changes. Cosmetically your used keyboard may have scuffs, scratches, cracks to plastic pieces, discolored keys or other visual impairments that might not show up in the photos. We try to mention any obvious visual imperfections but may not consider them serious enough to post in the listing.
