can anyone tell me how to use the damn thing? I just bought it a month ago to use in my home studio, and can't get a sound out of it. Of course, Korg wouldn't have the manual either. Help.

I've had the TR Rack for 8 or 9 months now and really like it. This is a great all around synth with a modern set of sampled sounds. It has great strings, beautiful organs, cool synths, excellent guitars, and a nice assortment of other well sampled instruments. Excellent effects, but you have to have 2 sets of stereo outputs connected to be able to use them. Memus are a bit tricky, but like any module, you have to read the manual and experiment. It's not an analog modeling synth, but an extremely good sample based synth.

I bought the Tr-rack 5 days ago and I'm already using it in quite complex setups (multi mode). I must say, reading online reviews alomst scared me inte not buying this synth, but I am glad I did. It's a excellent piece of gear. If you are used to working with controll messages and (some)mididumps you've hit gold with this unit.

Make sure to get all manuals(there are three) cuz they seem to me impossible to get your hands on, unless your willing to buy them from some company located in the states.

The samples are all(execpt for piano) rich and make every old tune you ever hade made come alive.

If you are a beginner and think it's impossible getting started working in multimode just download the multi- or techno-midi setup for cs2x(cubase). You will have to make a few changes to it(which take about 10 sec), but You'll be able to save your trackdata (prognr./volume/Cutoff and some other stuff)in the .mid/.all-file.

The interface is "logical" but also a royal pain int *ss! It takes way to long to change stuff like effects settings.

Even though you don't have to go to bed with the manual(each night)to be able to use the TR-rack, you be missing out on some really neat stuff if you chose not to read it through.

I make trance/club and sometimes even pop and this synth covers these genres well.

The trinity is one of the best worstation every made, and this expander is the same of the workstation, is not easy to program and select patch ( in multi mode is very strong select the sound of the part, only the number of program appear on the display!!! ). But the sound... I love this sound, for the acustic instrument is the better choice, for the pure electronic sound the better choice is the xv 5080 or the motif rack, but for the electronic sound there are a virus, a Q, ecc, this sort of expander is for the acustic sound and percussion and digital synth sound... I can't vote 5 because is very hard to use ( don't try to use it multitimbral, or use only a presets!!!), but the sound is not 5 is 10!!!

I've had one of these for nearly four years now, and it's one of the few pieces that I don't think I'll ever part with. I control all my combi and multi patches with sysex, so the lack of front panel editing has never really bothered me. As a sound engine this is a superb unit. Because no module is perfect for everything I use a lot of gear, but I find I'm using this one more and more. Once you start to edit your own sounds and develop a library, you'll find yourself coming back to this one time and time again. I've teamed it up with some earlier Korg AI2 engine gear, and some more recent Yamaha stuff, and the continuity in the mixes is just great. Meanwhile the Triton gathers dust.....
