A very special synthesizer.Pre MIDI type. Sounds warm, analog, it's a medium range synth, and is very collectable if you can get hold of one. One very cool thing is the possibility to combine sounds. The reason for the name Trident, is that it's been divided into 3 different synthesizers. One String section, one Brass section and one Synthesizer section.In split keyboard mode you can play 2 different sounds. The synthesizer section has 2 VCO's and brass and strings one each. Total number of VCO's is 4. VCA 2 ADSR Envelopes or ON/OFF gate. LFO Sine, square with speed, delay, depth. VCF 24 db Low pass filter with cutoff, resonnance, env. intensity and key tracking. You can control the synthesizer through CV. I once had this synth, actually I bought it when it was new, but unfortunatly it was stolen in the mid 80's on the road. I'm trying to get hold of a new, since this was one of the synthesizers I really think has personality, despite it's a quite cheap synth compared with others. If you can get hold of one, it's great value for the money.

Comments About the Sounds:
Sounds very good overall, but not a string type of synthesizer, more a brass type of sounds. Also quite good on Bass sounds.
