Korg Trinity, quiet buzzy sound out of all four outputs...
I have recently acquired a Korg Trinity Plus... reaalllly excited about it... but heres the problem I've run into: Barely any sound on any of the outputs! At first I thought it was just a bad solder joint... typical problem but all of them not working? Including headphones? ... also, when turning the volume all the way up, you can hear it... but its VERY quiet. When on synth patches, and hitting more then one key, it gets louder..but buzzy and nasty...
So... I found out about the self test thing... went into that.. and I get sound!
The local mode box is checked... I suppose it could still be a weak connection somewhere... only allowing the higher power signals through?
But I'm not sure.. couldn't find a lot of information on this around the web.

Hello. try going into edit mode and check the amplifier and distortion settings. sometimes they are too strong before the sound even leaves the keyboard. i notice it more on the keyboard than i do the rack version. the rack version has a nice loud output, i believe is better than the keyboard. your problem is most likely a 'clip' in the patch itself. and most likely in the distortion part. Regards, Joe

It looks like the Korg c-15s has a internally mounted speaker and so I will assume that the speaker and amplifier are part of the piano base. It sounds like either the speaker is blown (crackling sounds heard as deformed voice coil scrapes the magnet structure) or the audio amplifier is distorting the audio.
Connect the piano's output to an external amplifier and speaker to properly identify problem.
1. Power-off the PS60.
2. While holding down the four PERFORMANCE
buttons and the OCTAVE DOWN button, power-
on the PS60.
The PS60 will be initialized, and the factory-set data
will be written into internal memory. The display
will indicate "Initializing..." while data is being
written. Never turn off the power while this
indication is shown.

Go to www.korgpa.com/pa_root/pdf/pa800/Pa800-200UM-ENG.pdf.Page 226 has the audio output section.Page 19 has the rear panel explanation. Left/Right: These are the main stereo outputs. Use them to send the final stereo mix to an external device. Connect either to get a mono output. Set the output level with the Master Volume slider. 1/1: These are the sub outputs. Use these to create a stereo submix of just some tracks or to output just a single instrument to be mixed alone or to be processed or amplified externally. Not: the Master Volume slider has no effect on these outputs. Signal is sent dry with no effects applied. Hope this helps.
