I've been wanting to hear this exact combo, do you have any samples?
I don't. It was a thought experiment. :sb:

Picked up a Trident on a whim a few weeks ago. Absolutely shocked. Was not expecting zing to sound like it does. Absolutely amazing. The harmonics are incredible and just like described; a harmonic ring-mod. Brilliant.

This seems really cool, but I'm concerned by the lack of sines, to give a more mellow pallet. They can be patched in from outside, but you lose the sync and close tracking that seems like a central feature of the design. Any users got any comments on that?

I'm not a user but I think you'll be OK with triangle waves.

Same here, would be great to have sine on primary and the second oscilator for softer timber and cross patch FM.

I've loving this oscillator! But I'm not liking that the soft buttons don't retain their state like Linnaeus. Hopefully there's a firmware update soon!

Unfortunately not. Trident is 100% analog, so no firmware.

Marco, as I spend more time with this oscillator it's definitely becoming one of my favorites. However, since the buttons don't recall state, would it be possible to replace them with simple 2 and 3 way switches?

I've been playing with the trident for the last two weeks and I've found my favorite thing to tweak is the Coarse Freq on Osc 2 and 3 when the Zing is turned up. Unfortunately there is no cv control for this :-( Its still fun to turn them by hand when playing but I really wish I could dial in some cv to do that for me.

That's what the 1v/8va inputs are for.
It's done!

I want to share this collection of textures here.



You can click through the album to get an idea how the Trident can sound: it is the only source here. Mostly raw and unprocessed: but need to mention a bit of LP filtering (VCF1E) and granularization (Morphagene) plus overdubbing and layering via DLD. Basically all modules on this recording are the same as on the video in previous post.

if somebody could record/sample some waves from their trident and submit, i'm compiling a bunch of samples to put into a ROM in a EMU command station/Proteus 2000 - i already have samples from EMU modular
(would be nice to close the circle)

I could do that... shall I just record a droning note and turn various knobs so you can pick out the waves you want?

Everyone still loving their Trident? I love thick dirty analog sounds like from a Moog, and this seems to be the thickest oscillator out there. My ears like the sound more than the Verbos Complex.

oh absolutely! Sounds like a ton of bricks. To the point I'm considering selling both my black wavetable VCO and my 0-coast, I used to love them but they just don't sound as good no matter how I patch or tweak them. Might be a matter of taste too of course.

I love my Trident but it is quite different from my other oscillators in a good way. I use it with Morpheus Z Plane filter and also like to feed it to 100 Grit and Angle Grinder and use it in different ways sometimes sequence the 1v/oct with Stillson Hammer. Sometimes I send it to Rings and Marbles for a lot of interesting textures.
