The Trinity was a major break-through synthesizer for Korg. It is a beautiful, state of the art and superb sounding music workstation which first appeared in 1995. Its most notable new feature to the synthesizer industry is the super-cool 320 x 240 TouchView Graphical User Interface….which is also the heart of the instrument! This workstation seamlessly combines excellent digital sounds, in-depth yet intuitive programming, real-time controllers, upward expandability and elegant design to create the perfect all-around synthesizer. The Trinity’s sounds come out of a 24MB ROM chip with 48kHz multi-samples of about 375 sounds and 258 drums. You can even add an expansion board of Prophecy sounds and Z1 sounds! There’s a good digital multi-mode filter with hi/low/band pass, band reject, resonance and more. There’s also 110 effects for adding life to your sounds…up to 8 simultaneous insert effects and 2 master effects.
The Trinity has an excellent on-board sequencer allowing it to be the center of your music studio…it’s that good! And it’s fun to use the touch-screen. It’s a 16-track sequencer with an 80,000 note capacity, 100 patterns and 20 songs. With the 32 voices and plenty of drum sounds, you can use the Trinity as your all-in-one music studio! Great in the studio, or live there are plenty of real-time controllers including a Joystick, Ribbon controller and 2 assignable knobs and multiple sound outputs. Expandability includes a SCSI port, Internal Hard Disk Recording, 8Mb Flash Rom Playback-Sampler Option (which reads all Korg and Akai sound libraries), Digital ADAT I/O option and the SOLO-TRI Prophecy expansion board.
