I have a Triton-Rack and I recently ordered an external SCSI to SD card device, specifically a

SCSI2SD v5.5 (Pocket Edition)
(approximately $75 U.S.)

I purchased mine from eBay, the seller was Inertial Computing.
https://store.inertialcomputing.com/product-p/scsi2sd-v5.5.htm

[You can also find these on eBay, searching on "SCSI2SD"]

The V5.5 version is designed as a simple external drive that plugs directly into the back of your old machine or sampler. No cables required.
Power is provided by the host itself (in this case the Triton-Rack); it supplies terminator power on pin25 of the DB25 socket.

NOTE: This is the SCSI2SD V5.5 version ONLY; I don't know if the other versions or models work!









The SCSI2SD V5.5 device has three interfaces on it:
-- a microSD card slot
-- a USB 2.0 micro-B port
-- a male DB25 SCSI socket

The SCSI2SD V5.5 device simply plugs in to the 25-pin SCSI port
[You must have the Korg EXB-SCSI expansion device installed in your Triton-Rack or Triton Classic].

I installed a SanDisk microSDHC 32GB card, but the Triton Operating System won't allow you to use/see more than 4GB of storage.

I used the following procedure to set this up:
-- format the microSD card on your computer (I used Windows 10)
-- insert the microSD card into the SCSI2SD V5.5 microSD card slot
-- power off your Triton (Rack or Classic)
-- insert the SCSI2SD V5.5 device into the Triton SCSI port
-- power on the Triton
-- go to DISK Mode and find the SCSI drive. The display will say "Unformatted"
-- use the Triton-Rack (or Triton Classic) to format the SCSI drive (I gave mine the Volume Name of "SCSI_DRIVE")
-- the SCSI drive will be formatted at a size of 4GB
-- the SCSI drive is ready for use

Also, here is the main WIKI page for the SDCSI2SD (there are multiple versions and form factors)

Update:

Using the available SCSI2SD V5 Configuration Utility, I was able to create FOUR SCSI drives on my microSD Card.

Each drive is formatted on the Triton-Rack at 4GB, so I now have 16GB of storage on a single microSD Card.

Yes, assuming you have at least 64mb is Sample ram installed, which, according to the library you reference, is the minimum ram requirement for that library.

Think of this device as a flash based external hard drive. It can hold anything a SCSI drive could hold.
