This product tutorial set is for the Korg Triton Extreme. The videos go in-depth with the Triton more than the videos from Korg. Korg's videos cover only a limited amount of time in each mode. Our videos dig deep and explore practical and useful applications for the music creation process.
Our videos are on region free DVD or download , so virtually any computer can play them without having to worry about NTSC/PAL formatting. For your convenience, each lesson topic is covered in its own separate video clip. This allows the user to more easily navigate, pause, start, and stop the lesson at any point. The resolution or screen quality of these videos are better than VHS, since the visibility of the Triton's menus and controls don't hold up well on TV resolution.
