Korg's Triton LE synthesizer is the entry level keyboard in the Triton line and is available with a 61, 76 or 88-key keyboard. The main difference between the Triton LE and higher-end models is that the LE does not have on-board sampling capability. However, a sampling unit can be purchased as an optional upgrade. Getting familiar with a few tricks can also help reduce frustration and make the LE a flexible instrument for studio and live performance.

Consistent Song Playback

If you load new sound collections or sampled drum kits into your Triton LE via the SmartMedia slot, take a note of the memory space to which they are loaded. When you turn the Triton LE off, it does not save non-preset sound collections and you will need to reload them. Loading them in the same memory space ensures that performances played back via Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI) are consistent.


If you play along to recorded music or with other musicians, you may need to tune the Triton to match their pitch. To do this so that all sounds are tuned simultaneously, you need to adjust the "Master Tune" settings of the "Global" system settings. Tuning can be adjusted plus or minus fifty cents, or a total of one semitone. Remember to save the setting to the "Global" memory if you intend to keep the tuning settings after you turn off the power.


The Triton comes loaded with sound effects that can be applied to any of its sounds individually or to a whole song. If you want to listen to an instrument sound without any effects applied, you do not have to edit each sound or program individually. You can quickly bypass all effects by turning either the "Insert effect," "Master effects one" or "Master effects two" off. Enter the "Global" settings, press "Exit" and then press the "F1" key. You can then select the check boxes for the effect you want to bypass.

Menu Shortcuts

By using control key shortcuts, you can quickly select different pages within the various memory modes. To scroll through pages within a particular mode use the arrow keys while holding down the "Menu" key. If you know the page you want to view, hold down the "Menu" key and type in the page number using the keys on the number pad.
