Korg Legacy Collection - Triton question on included sounds

Recommended Posts

Howdy - I happened to see that Korg has gotten around to recently releasing a soft-synth recreation of their Triton keyboard, and I am trying to understand its included sounds.

I see from the doc, that it comes with a bunch of expansion packs, but what is not clear to me (never having owned the actual original keyboard), if the collection of sounds that comes with the new soft-synth version have all of the sounds from their Triton Extreme keyboard.

I am asking for a friend of mine,  a fellow keyboard player, who happens to own and still use an original Triton Extreme keyboard, and he is potentially interest in buying this new software recreation, to use live, because the original keyboard weighs about a billion pounds, but he is concerned about whether or not the software version has all of the "Combi" sounds that came with the Triton Extreme keyboard.

He is a bit leery of dropping $249 on the software version, if it doesn't have the Combi sounds from the Extreme included, because those are the sounds he would be interested in.

I looked at a couple of his combi sounds (he sent me phone pics of the various parts of 2 of his combi sounds from his keyboard's display window, which show all of the effects and internal routing that give those sounds the rich depth that they have, and I had thought perhaps I could create equivalent sounds using Kontakt instruments and applying similar effects, etc.... to save him from spending the $249, but it seems like a bunch of work for me to do that, SO I thought I would ask here - if anyone knows if the current sounds included with the new Korg software recreation of its original Triton (with its included expansion packs), would then also have the various combi sounds from the Triton Extreme - and if so, that then might justify my recommending he spend the $249 and pick it up, for live use.

Sorry for the long post - trickier to explain than perhaps necessary, I need some coffee and am pretty sleepy.  :)

THANKS to anyone who might know the answer to the above.

I still use the Triton Extreme in my studio.  I wonder if the software has the Moss sounds which are really great in the Triton Extreme.

I downloaded the demo - which seems to operate for like 15 or 20 minutes, so I will try to work through all of their combi sounds.

Can you please confirm that these 'Moss sounds' you referred to, are Combi sounds?  Or, are they basic presets (not Combi)?

Moss, or M.O.S.S., was a hardware addon for the Triton that provided an alternate synthesis engine. True synth rather than samples. I doubt that Korg included that in the VSTi. If they had, I'm sure it would be listed near the top of the features list.

The expansions are additional samples that were sold as addon cards, similar to Roland's JV/XV stuff.

I got the impression from the Korg website  that the VSTi is based on the original Triton. https://www.korg.com/us/products/software/korg_collection/triton.php

I purchased the VSTi and I comes with all of the expansion presets but not the "MOSS sounds".

Thanks for that info. Helpful to know.
