"The name Trilogy of course (in the same vein were, for example, the Korg Trident, the ARP Omni 1/2, and the Moog Opus 3) comes from the fact that this instrument features three sections: Organ, Strings, and Synthesizer.
These 'Multi-Instrument Keyboards', as they were called at the time, were very popular among keyboardists - because back in the early 80s, "proper synthesizers" like the Prophet-5, Oberheim OB-X or Jupiter-8 were much more expensive.
The String section in particular sounds great.. very retro, and very similar to the classic ARP String Ensemble (Solina).
The Synthesizer section is big, brassy, and typically 80s-sounding. In all, this is an impressive (not only visually - it's very large and heavy) synthesizer, capable of vintage sounds unavailable anywhere else."
