Great underrated synth. Lack LFO? No problem, on back panel ther's VCF IN control, you can put inside two external LFO or any kind of CV signals. Strings aren't the best , the Korg Lambda strings are much better.

i own a korg trident (mark one), i paid 300£ with one cigarette burn in a key and the wood is a bit scratched, but who cares those other people are correct in every way, i use it to make really wicked soundson logic pro 7, it takes about 2 hours to get fully (warm) and fat sounding. i used to think it was broken but it just needs time. i much prefur analogue to digital synths, you can use your hands! if anyone actually knows the current prie please email me, just interested - i wouldn't sell it unless i was stone broke! ill send you mp3 sounds i have produced aswell if you're interested send me yours!

I bought it for less than 300$. I had a Waldorf Q and a Roland Mks30, and was quite happy with these 2 synth.I think you can't compare the possibility of the 2 machines (Q and Trident), the Q is a monster in therm of flexibility and filters and sound choice. The Mks30 is a lovely machine with quite a cheesy sound an a cool Chorus. The Trident Mk2 is a monster in therm of warmness an analog sound, that a Q and a Mks30 can't do. The Q is cold, german, precise but not warm. Take all the effects away of the Q and listen to it. Do the same withe the Trident, it still blows you away.

That sure, the Trident is not as flexible as a Jupiter8 or a Prophet5, and the lack of an arpegiator make it not so good for techno music...

If you're playing sound like progressive rock, if you like the sound of the keyboards of Pink Floyd, Genesis, etc...this is the perfect synth.

You can really do massive, incredibly warm, sirupy and atmospheric analog Pads...perhaps the best pads for the money. But it's also possible to do some nice lead sounds, or basses. Far better than every virtual analogical synths.

This Keyboard is heavy and looks very cool in a keyboard set-up. Thank you Korg for this warm piece of gear.

This is the best analog synthesizer I've ever heard. Beautiful pads and brasses. It's got very, very warm sound. I love it. You can make very special sounds on it. Worth a lot of money!!!! Super performance synth!!!

For all of its size and features, it is a poor synth. The phaser kills sensible sounds and the strings and brass aint as good as most general polys. The reliability is poor and it is very heavy. The front panal is smothered with control. In practice it's not as variable as you would think. Only buy if cheap. It looks better than it is.
