Trinity Pro X

Post by BJG145 »

Someone just asked me if I wanted a Trinity Pro X. I don't have a lot of space, so I was like, well, how much do you want for it? And they said, no, you can have it.

I suppose I can find a corner somewhere. :D

Seriously, that's a blindingly good result.

The Trinity has something about it that not even its rackmount version matched and is one of those relatively rare synths whose successor (the Triton), despite having an arpeggiator and some better specs on paper, wasn't as good in my opinion.

The Trinity is also a synth for which there is no proper emulation in software that I am aware of, which is a great shame in my book (please, Korg?!)

It's a real gem - treasure it. And if you don't get along with it, please give one of us first refusal on it before advertising it. My Trinity is one of my most valued synths!

Enjoy, and I too am a bit jealous ;)

Should you wish to, here is a thread I made a while ago about how to install a USB floppy drive emulator in it, as the old floppy drives can stop working.

It also has a built-in self-test and diagnostics mode. If you switch it on while holding down the ENTER + 5 buttons together then you will get a menu where you can generate test tones on all the outputs, test all the buttons on the control surface and more besides.

I used my Trinity for a One Synth Challenge submission by the way, all recorded using the onboard sequencer only.

The Trinity also makes a excellent controller keyboard for other synths. In "Song" mode each track can be set to control the internal tone generator, an external MIDI channel or both.

A proper epic piece of gear, superb effects routing capabilities, well ahead of its time and as good today as it ever was :thumbup:

Korg Triton, my fave keyboard, Trinity, doesn’t matter, both are amazing, even by today’s standards.

That would be an ecumenical matter.

Wow, what a powerhouse! I remember seeing Dream Theater w Derek Sherinian, he used the Trinity Pro X, I believe.

I thought he just used a pair of regular Trinity units. (and an organ and a piano in a front-back configuration)

Personally, I tend to try and forget the awful DS era of DT....
