David Newman's main workstation in the composition room, with no fewer than three computer screens and two video displays. Visible in the rack are (from left), Korg Triton Rack and TR-Rack modules, Yamaha CS6R module, Mackie line mixer, Emu Proteus 2000, Audity 2000 and Planet Earth modules, Roland XV5080 module and VP9000 processor.more
"I've got an 8100 Power Mac that was basically outdated the second I bought it. I use Performer, and I have four 760 Roland samplers. I have a Korg TR rack sound module, a Korg O1RW sound module, a Korg X3R, an old Proteus FX and a Roland JD-1080. I've got a Roland R-8M. My keyboard is a Roland D-70. I have an old Ensoniq ASR-10 sampler. I have a Tascam DA-88 and a Mackie 32*8 mixing console, plus a couple of Lexicon reverb units."more
I use it only for church organ sounds. The TR-RACK offers the best church organ samples I've ever heard. I also own some other romplers (e.g. Integra-7, JD-990) but nothing to compare with such a good tones. With a Lexicon LXP-15 to build a cathedral reverb, is terrific.
My experience with the tr-rack was fun to use, it did allowed me to experiment when it comes to music making and i am pretty happy how this synth came to be when using it.
I do have some pros and cons on it that i want to talk about.
Amazing Sound quality
Great selection of presets or patches.
Includes the TRI-PBS Boards (But no sampler function)
Looks pretty great.
Has a selectable patch category.
24 bit Sample quality.
The LED Interface
The lack of the GM mode which was originally on the keyboard version but also impossible to import through SYSEX.
32 Voice Polyphony (While it a okay amount of polyphony but by then other brands switch to 64 voices)
Lack of a Value Wheel.
Making Patches and presets is impossible unless through a editor.
The multi timbral mode not displaying the patches names, making it hard to remember which patch is which.
Cannot use the A or B banks to load your custom patches.
Has no sampler option.
I believe that all of the pros and cons i can give for this synth.
