Studio Soundbox Sound Collection
A treasure-trove of new sounds for your TRITON-series workstation. The first 64 all-new sounds were programmed by acclaimed LA synth programmer David Polich, who has made sounds for some of the top-selling synths of the last few years. These sounds cover a wide range of acoustic instrument emulations, with full controller assignments and arp settings.

Added to the file are some Programs made using only SAW waves to show off the synthesis power of the TRITON, made by Korg programmer Jack Hotop. Next up are the Lead sounds Jack made for Tom Coster which have been available on our site for some time now. Rounding out the collection are a group of dance/synth sounds developed during the PCM-09 Trance Attack project which use only ROM waveforms, so they can be used in any TRITON without needing the EXB-PCM09 board. Finally, we've included two template programs for using mono or stereo samples. The Bank will automatically load into the "E" Bank. A full name/category list is included in the download.

Enjoy!

Tim Edwards' Bank of MOSS Sounds
This is a new Bank of MOSS sounds created by a loyal Korg user from the UK, Tim Edwards (known on the forums as Timo). Originally programmed for the Trinity MOSS-TRI, these cool and edgy sounds were converted in the Korg laboratories to TRITON format and then the controllers, arps and effects were edited (referencing Timo’s original Trinity settings) by Korg USA’s James Sajeva.

These sounds can be played on any Korg product equipped with the EXB-MOSS Option – TRITON Extreme, TRITON Classic, TRITON STUDIO, TRITON-Rack, and KARMA.

A .pdf document detailing the sounds is included in the download.

  Sounds: MOSS Sounds - MOSS ELP Lead  
   


MOSS ELP Lead
“MOSS ELP Lead” Program

Here is a great lead sound created using the EXB-MOSS board. So good we had to share it!

This sound was created by Jack Hotop for his demos at a recent NAMM show. According to Jack, he wanted a lead sound where he could easily morph between two different “ELP” type of sounds, so that he could continue to play on one program as the backing tracks moved from song to song. This sound was originally played on a TRITON using the Realtime Control Knobs to edit the Cutoff, Resonance and Release of the filter. The Ribbon controller was used to manipulate the Envelope settings.

Although this sound was originally created on the TRITON, it can be played on any Korg product equipped with the EXB-MOSS Option – TRITON Classic, TRITON STUDIO, TRITON-Rack, and KARMA.

You must have the EXB-MOSS board installed to use this sound.

The .pdf document is included in the download.
