Hi all guys, as far as i understand i have two upgrade options.
1, 99$ adding Prophecy, Triton Extreme and miniKorg
2. 149$ adding Prophecy, Triton, Triton Extreme and miniKorg

So i wonder which differences there are between Triton and Triton Extreme.

Any opinion?

thanks
Clearly take the cheaper one. I too got both options. I 'think' the 99 is the upgrade from v2 and the 149 is my upgrade from legacy.
My korg installer app always shows both legacy and v2 at the top, like if they are two separate packages.

For example, i didn't really like the unison "phasey" character.
I noticed that today also.
It would be nice if they added a switch to turn retrigger on/off.

Finally—A software version of the Korg Prophecy! :)

And with polyphony!!! I didn't realize at first that the voice settings are under the FX section. I was ready to come to terms that it was just staying true to the original and that I would have to wait for a Z1 plugin for polyphony... Errie Combstring is brilliant as a polyphonic patch!

I used to own a Prophecy and it's great to now have a software version from Korg. Worth the price of admission here!

Actually, I'm starting to think the MiniKorg is the star of the show! Its got a lovely tone and I keep finding sounds that I want to play.

Yep they nailed its character. Very simple, but spectacular sounding synth.

As I said in the bargains thread it's got sounds that can leave space in a mix, but a lot of those synths like Triton and Prophecy feel a bit 'everything and the kitchen sink' though they still do sound great and you can use filters to slightly lessen their track dominance.

If it had polyphony, it would be a Z1.
Well no, Prophecy doesn't have all the oscillator modes Z1 has, and IIRC there are also some other differences (Z1 can be 6 part multitimbral, for starters).

At any rate, FX page bottom left section has the polyphony option. Up to 256 voices. :hihi:

Strange that the prophecy doesn't have the Output boost or cut option in Global like all the recent ones.

Indeed, it could use a 6 dB boost for sure. I guess this is why we have faders in our DAWs, haha.
If my memory isn't too fried, I think the Z1's engine was closer to the MOSS board for the Triton. Two oscillator models in the MOSS board that aren't in the Prophecy are bowed strings, and drawbars. Still, my experience so far with the Prophecy plugin has been good, and it seems to work fine on Window 7 (I know, I really need to get a new computer some day), despite the minimum requirements stating Windows 10. I'll play with it some more before I decide to buy or not.
I wish I could sing as well as the voices inside my head...

I already had Triton.. no reason why I would take the more expensive one.
I would end up with the same number of vst's :)

Nice surprise to just have this drop today, I enjoy when stuff just "appears" without any hype. Glad to see new stuff. Like others have said, that MiniKorg is pretty cool. Upgraded for the $149.

Ah, I missed that :dog: although you could probably sell a Triton licence for more than 50 bucks!

Wish they'd add MOSS to the Triton. I'm still hanging on to my Triton rack because it has the MOSS board, which is not in the Triton plugin.
