Hello,

I've been using my Korg Triton Pro 76 key model as my main Midi Controller for the past 4~5 years and then very recently, I found out the true power of this beast. Customizing Combinations and uploading custom PCG files through MIDI cable (sysex) opened a whole new world for me and now, I really wanted to explore more.

Then, I decided to have a go at 'sampling'.
Turntable, line out, connected it back to Triton and successfully recorded 5 secs of string sections.

I was noodling with it, key-mapping, converted it into Program and tweaked a little to make it sound more ambient. Fun, fun! So powerful (because MPC lacks keymapping option only up to 16 zones...).

But........

I was not able to save the program... well, technically, I could save the program's parameter settings (?) but NOT samples... I needed a storage option...

I went onto Google, searched about it for a day, and found out I could replace my floppy drive with USB-emulator.

Ordered one cheap on eBay.

But then, again, 1.44mb limit per virtual disk could be really inconvenient.

I went back on google again and found out about SCSI-flash drive mod (not so sure if this is possible or relevant these days)...

So, my question is,

I would really like to explore more on my Korg triton pro,
a) Trying out free custom patches on the internet, loading it up easily through the disk option
b) Saving my custom patches and banks without limit
c) Saving my sample-based patches without any limit


What WOULD be the best bet...?
*my Triton has no SCSI expansion, unfortunately.

Um. I guess the real downside is, USB emulator, limits the virtual floppy drive ONLY up to 1.44mb... (I did not know this...) That IS really small capacity for reasonably recorded samples... my main purchase was exclusively FOR saving samples and sample-based patches fluently...........sigh



Anybody has any good suggestion or.. would this be the best I could get?



Thanks in advance you all.
(Sorry for the long writing)

I think I haven't done enough research about it on the forum...

And I believe I have found I needed to know...


Sorry for bringing up such an old repeated topic Smile

I will try USB floppy emulator first, see how I go and then later, I will look for EXB-SCSI board and SCSI2SD converter.


Thanks.

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

SCSI2SD v5.5 Pocket Edition

https://store.inertialcomputing.com/product-p/scsi2sd-v5.5.htm



I purchased mine from eBay, the seller was Inertial Computing.

Theoretically, you simply plug this pocket device into the EXB-SCSI DB25 port.
It is unclear whether the Triton will provide power, or whether I will need to connect a USB cable.

The device uses a microSD card as storage.

I haven't received it yet, but I will post back with an update when I do.

You would first need to install the Korg EXB-SCSI expansion in your Triton.

The SCSI2SD v5.5 works!!!

I was able to plug in this device to the back of my Triton-Rack (via the SCSI port), then was able to format the microSD card using the Triton-Rack.

The Triton-Rack (all Tritons) limit the format to 4GB of space.

Just ordered one of these.
Now I can stop burning CD's to import samples.
Installed a HD kit in 2004 and the drive finally failed.
This little SD guy should be much better.
Thanks for confirming functionality.
