Introducing the New Trigon-6 Desktop Module
Ultimate Polyphonic Power
San Francisco, CA — Today, Sequential announced the desktop module of the powerhouse Trigon-6 polyphonic synthesizer, their modern take on a true-classic analog design. The desktop version is a compact and portable instrument that still packs in all the sound generation capabilities of its formidable keyboard sibling. It features three oscillators per voice and a ladder filter that has been updated with a dedicated drive and feedback control, making it easy to go from silky and smooth to bold and crunchy with the twist of a knob. This versatility makes Trigon-6 the perfect companion for your studio or live performance.
The desktop module is more than just a smaller version of the keyboard Trigon-6. It’s an expressive and potent instrument that delivers warm, organic, analog sound in its own right. “Desktop module designs continue to be a popular choice with our players,” said CEO David Gibbons. “We spent a little extra time on MIDI polyphonic expression capabilities as we finalized this one, in anticipation of people pairing it up with some of the awesome MPE-capable controllers on the market. We’re looking forward to hearing what people will do with it!”
Three is a Magic Number
The Trigon-6 desktop module offers a classic three-oscillator synth architecture with an enhanced ladder filter, inspired by some of the most iconic analog synths of all time. The three oscillators provide a rich and flexible sound source, with familiar waveforms from triangle to more complex saws, and variable-width pulse. You can mix and match the oscillators to create intricate harmonics, detune them for thick chorusing effects, or sync oscillator 2 for hard-edged growls.
Meanwhile, the ladder filter completes the heart and soul of the Trigon-6, providing a smooth and musical response that can shape your sound from creamy and mellow to mangled and aggressive. The filter has a 2/4-pole switchable slope and adjustable resonance that can add a distinctive peak or even self-oscillate for screaming leads and sci-fi effects. And with Drive and Feedback engaged, get ready to melt some faces!
Greater Expression Through MPE
Now Trigon-6 lets you shape every note with MPE. MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) is an extension of MIDI that allows compatible devices to control multiple parameters of individual notes within MPE-enabled synths. This provides for more expressive instrumental performances, as each note can have its own pitch bend, filter cutoff, amplitude, and other modulations. You will be able to bend, slide, vibrato, swell and morph your sounds with unprecedented feeling and subtlety. Experience the classic 3-oscillator, ladder filter sound like never before with Trigon-6, the groundbreaking polyphonic analog synth that lets you truly perform every nuance of your music with MPE.
The Trigon-6 synthesizer is a testament to Dave Smith’s legacy and innovation. It has all the best qualities of Sequential’s acclaimed Prophet-6 and OB-6 synths — 6-voice polyphony, unrivaled playability, and easy programmability. It also features a global LFO, a polyphonic step sequencer, an arpeggiator, and a dual effect processor with chorus, ring modulation, flanger, phaser, delay, and reverb effects. Don’t miss this opportunity to get your hands on the Trigon-6 desktop module, the polyphonic power-synth that fits your studio, your music, and your life.
