Korg TRITON proX Manual: Disk Mode; Files, Directories, And Icons

Hide thumbs


In this mode you can save and load internal memory data to
and from a floppy disk or a connected external SCSI device
(if the separately sold EXB-SCSI option is installed). You can
also make various settings related to saving and loading.
The TRITON can use MS-DOS format 3.5 inch 2HD or 2DD
floppy disks. After a floppy disk has been formatted on the
TRITON, a 2HD disk will have a capacity of 1.44 MB (18 sec-
tors/track), and a 2DD disk will have a capacity of 720 KB (9
sectors/track). When the EXB-SCSI option is installed, up to
4 GB can be formatted on an external SCSI device.
The TRITON cannot format media with a format of other
than 512 bytes/block (such as 640 MB MO disks etc.).
For details on connecting external SCSI devices and setting
the ID, refer to the EXB-SCSI owner's manual.
ISO9660 format is supported. ISO9660 level 1 CD-ROM
discs can be read.

Files, directories, and icons

The TRITON manages data on disks and other media in a
hierarchical manner, using files and directories. The contents
of a file (whether it is a file or a directory) are indicated not
only by the name but also graphically by an icon. Files and
directories have differently shaped icons.
On the TRITON, files and directories that can be recognized
by MS-DOS (i.e., read by an MS-DOS computer) are referred
to as DOS files and DOS directories.
Various types of DOS files are distinguished by the exten-

.JKB files cannot be loaded or saved in Disk mode –
only in Song Play mode.
When data is saved on the TRITON, one of these filename
extensions will be added automatically, according to the
type of data (except for .AIF and .WAV). If these filename
extensions are modified on a computer, the file will be
treated as an undefined file when it is reloaded back into the
TRITON, and will be handled as a Standard MIDI File.
Files handled by the TRITON have the following structure.
Since .PCG and .SNG files can be opened to divide their con-
tents, they are displayed as directory icons.
