To achieve this, TRITON’s original engineers supervised the development process to fine tune the software down to the smallest details.
Over 4,000 ready-to-go sound programs
All kinds of producers, especially Hip Hop and R&B in the 2000’s, loved the TRITON’s sounds. “Preset sounds that can be used as is” were never fully realized before the TRITON. Even famous producers kept the presets around to help them make highly original sounds one after another. The KORG Collection TRITON comes with every on of the original TRITON preset programs. All eight of the EXB-PCM expansions are included, boosting the number of programs to over 4,000. You can obtain the vast sounds that are ready to go and easy to use to this day.

Full of ready-to-go phrases with 307 dual arpeggiators patterns
The TRITON came with a built-in 16-track sequencer and took the music world by storm as a music workstation that could single-handedly create music. Although the KORG Collection TRITON does not come with a sequencer, it does come equipped with the same powerful dual polyphonic arpeggiator as the original. The 307 types of practical presets, including melodies, riffs, and drum patterns, are incredibly useful for songwriting.

Many musicians have used TRITON.
“The Triton was a staple for me, both in the studio & on the stage. Easy to use, with a great versatile sound bank...it was a really cool synth!”
- James Poyser (The Roots)
“For me, the Triton has been one of the most functional and reliable workstations ever. It’s a keyboard that I’ve gotten a lot of mileage from over many years of use between the studio, tours and special events.”
- Greg Phillinganes
“I remember the time when Triton came out at that time, and I was shocked to see how superior it was compared to my 01/W, which was my first synth and I still own and use it. Making a demo for the software version was such a delightful moment for me.”
- Ryota Nozaki / Jazztronik
