The TRITON Le's extra-large 32 Mbyte PCM ROM (borrowed from the TRITON, of course) 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 16 Mbyte stereo Concert Grand Piano sample set for a total of 48 Mbyte of PCM ROM. High-quality 48-kHz sampling ensures that every detail of every sound is richly preserved.Exciting New Sounds, Plus Many TRITON Classics
The TRITON Le features both high-quality sounds selected from TRITON's preload data and an assortment of new Programs and Combinations voiced especially for the instrument. In addition to its 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.
The new music workstation also contains 384 Combinations, each consisting of up to eight Programs. These Combis include richly layered sounds, splits, velocity layers and controller-assigned combinations that will give your music guaranteed impact.
You can also customize the TRITON Le's Programs, Combinations and drum kits - or create your own - and overwrite them into the 512 programs/384 combinations/24 drum kits in the workstation's internal memory. All of these can be backed up onto SmartMedia cards, an external hard drive or removable media drive (if the optional EXB-SMPL Sampling Upgrade board is installed) to create enormous libraries of your own, personal sounds.Four-Part Effects Section for Studio-Quality Sound
The TRITON Le provides one stereo insert effect, two master effects plus a master EQ (stereo 3 band) and a mixer section that controls their 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.Fully-Featured 16-track Sequencer for All-in-One Music Production
A full-fledged 16-track sequencer with a capacity of up to 200,000 notes and 200 songs is built in, and delivers the same level of functionality found in the TRITON and KARMA Music Workstations. You can record in realtime or step time, and a host of powerful editing tools are provided.
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. One hundred and fifty preset drum patterns and 100 user patterns, a Track Loop function that lets you play back specified measures of a track as a loop, and even a Template Song function (16 presets and 16 user memories) that contains program and effect setups appropriate for various styles of music, all 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.Dual Arpeggiator and RPPR Functions Inherited from TRITON
The TRITON Le provides two powerful polyphonic arpeggiators that can be used to create intricate and expressive pitched patterns or drum grooves. Two hundred and five patterns are provided (5 Preset/200 editable), with 16 User locations available for your own creations. You can use one arpeggiator in Program mode, and two arpeggiators in Combi and Sequencer modes, and you can even record the arpeggiators into the internal sequencer. Korg's unique RPPR function allows you to trigger sequenced patterns from individual keys on the keyboard for cool DJ style performances.High-Capacity SmartMedia for even Greater Convenience
The TRITON Le sports a SmartMedia slot to accommodate compact and high-capacity SmartMedia, allowing you to exchange or backup large amounts of data easily. Imagine storing nearly 90 floppy disks worth of Program, Combi, Sequence and sample data on a card the size of a cracker, with almost no load time! SmartMedia sizes up to 128 Mbyte are supported, and data can easily be exchanged with a computer via readily available adapters commonly used with digital cameras. You can also load samples into a Triton Le using a SmartMedia card.You're in Control
The TRITON Le provides a joystick, two assignable switches, and four realtime control knobs, and lets you use these for Alternate Modulation Sources to apply modulation to LFO and filters etc., to dynamically control effect parameters or to control the arpeggiators.
Finding sounds on the TRITON Le is a breeze. A dedicated (CATEGORY) key brings you to an easy interface for finding Programs and Combinations quickly and easily. This category selection' method is used not only for selecting sounds, but also when selecting oscillator waveforms and effect algorithms.
The (AUDITION) key allows you to preview Programs using a selection of musically-appropriate
