Korg Triton-Rack Expandable HI-Module/Sampler
Complete with power adapter
About This Rack
This Triton-rack is good working order and cosmetically it is about average for a used rack. We used the floppy drive to update to the newest OS version 1.5.2 and it works great. We're including the power adapter and it has 16 megs of sampling ram already installed. I have included several pictures that should speak for themselves.
The TRITON-Rack is a expandable Hi-model sampler that features the HI (Hyper Integrated) synthesis system as its tone generator.
Its numerous functions include high-quality preset multisamples/programs/combinations, an effect section, sampling, multis, a dual polyphonic arpeggiator, RPPR, analog two-channel audio input/six-channel audio output, and digital two-channel audio output. By operating the REALTIME CONTROLS – knobs you can control filter or effects to vary the sounds in realtime as you perform. These knobs can also be used to control the gate and velocity of the arpeggiator, and the tempo of the arpeggiator and RPPR.
Options such as a MOSS tone generator, PCM/sampling memory expansions, SCSI port, ADAT digital output, and mLAN interface board can be installed to further expand the capabilities of the TRITON-Rack.The TRITON-Rack is a powerful tool for music production or live performance.
HI (Hyper Integrated) synthesis system
The HI (Hyper Integrated) synthesis system is a PCM tone generator system with full digital signal processing that guarantees pristine sound, and featuring enormous flexibility in musical extensibility, modulation, and effect routing. The synthesis section (filter etc.) provides Alternate Modulation functionality, and the effect section provides Effect Dynamic Modulation functionality. This allows you to freely apply modulation to
parameters that affect the pitch, filter, amp, EG, LFO, and effects etc. LFO and delay time etc. can be synchronized to MIDI clock/tempo. You can synchronize sounds or effects to the tempo of the sequencer or the arpeggiator.
In Program, the TRITON-Rack provides 1,664 user programs, and 256 programs + 9 drumsets for GM2 compatibility. When the separately sold EXBMOSS option is installed, 128 programs for the Korg MOSS tone generator will also be available.
You can use a wide range of editing parameters, effects, and arpeggiator settings to create your own original program, and save it as a user program. For the oscillator of the program, you can select from 425 PCM ROM multisamples, or use samples/multisamples that you recorded in Sampling mode. You can also create drum programs using the 144 user drum kits or the nine GM2-compatible ROM drum kits. User drum kits can be created using the 413 preset drum samples or samples that you recorded in Sampling mode.
With the factory settings, 512 user programs suitable for a wide range of styles are preloaded in banks INT-A–INT-D. For these preloaded programs and for the preset programs in banks G, g(1)–g(d), you can use the Audition function to hear the program played using an appropriate riff (phrase). This provides a convenient way to audition or edit programs.
The Combination Mode provides 1,664 user combinations. A combination allows you to use layers, splits, or velocity switches etc. to combine up to eight programs together with effects and two arpeggiators, in order to create complex sounds that could not be produced by a program. You can also make settings that include external tone generators. With the factory settings, 512 user combinations suitable for a wide range of styles are preloaded in banks INT-A–INT-D.
When one or more separately sold EXB-PCM options are installed (up to eight boards), programs and combinations for the corresponding EXB-PCM can be loaded into user program banks/ user combination banks EXB-A–EXB-H.
Rivaling dedicated sampling devices, the TRITONRack features 48 kHz 16-bit linear mono/stereo sampling with a maximum of 96 Mbytes of memory, allowing you to create original sounds from your own audio material.
Multi-track musical data can be received from an external sequencer etc. to play the TRITON-Rack as a 16- track MIDI multi-timbral tone generator. The effects, two arpeggiators, and the RPPR function can be used together, allowing the TRITON-Rack to function as a sophisticated sound-generating system with capabilities far beyond those of conventional tone generator modules.
In addition to providing conventional arpeggiator functionality, the polyphonic arpeggiator of the TRITON-Rack can respond to the pitches or timing at which you play the keyboard, and produce a diverse range of chords or phrases. This can be used to play a
variety of drum phrases, bass phrases, or guitar and keyboard backing riffs. The arpeggiator is also effective for use with subtly moving pads, synth sounds, or sound effects. Five preset arpeggio patterns and 328 user arpeggio patterns are provided. With the factory settings, these contain a wide variety of 200 preloaded user arpeggio patterns.
In Combination mode, and Multi mode, the TRITON-Rack provides dual arpeggiators that can simultaneously play two arpeggio patterns. You can apply separate arpeggio patterns to drum and bass programs, or use keyboard splits or velocity to switch
between arpeggio patterns for an even more dynamic performance.
The TRITON-Rack features a RPPR (Realtime Pattern Play/Recording) function. In Multi mode, this function allows you to assign preset patterns or user patterns (with a specified playback track) to individual notes of the keyboard, and playback or record that pattern in realtime simply by pressing the assigned note. The TRITON-Rack provides 150 preset patterns that can be shared by all multis. In addition, each multi can use 100 user patterns.
When you execute the Time Slice function of Sampling mode, a drum phrase or similar sample will be divided into beats, and simultaneously a corresponding pattern will be created and assigned to RPPR.
The two channel audio input allows you to record samples in stereo. The MIC/LINE level select switch and the level adjustment knob can be used to support a wide range of external audio sources from mic level to line level.
The audio inputs can also be routed through the effects. You can apply effects while sampling, use the TRITON-Rack as a 2-in/6-out effect processor, or use it as a vocoder effect that joins the external source with the TRITON-Rack’s internal sounds. In addition to the L/MONO and R main stereo audio outputs, the TRITON-Rack provides four individual audio outputs, for a total of six channels of audio output. The sound from each oscillator, drum, timbre/track, or insertion effect can be routed freely to any output. SPDIF OUT is standard, for digital (48 kHz)output of the same audio signal as the L/MONO and R main stereo audio outputs.

It is important to remember that when buying a used keyboard or rack 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.
