A Completely Customizable Experience 

Trident’s latest console, the Trident 88, offers a wide range of options that will make your studio’s workflow completely unique unto itself. Whether you choose a 16, 24, 32, 40 or 48+ channel console, each Trident features a choice in meters, mic pre transformers, optional automation and even wood grain. It’s important to have a console that feels like it’s your own, and with the Trident 88’s level of customization, you’ll be pleased with the outcome of your choices.


Ease Of Workflow And Sound 

As a split in-line console, the Trident 88 offer multiple inputs per channel, which makes the process of switching between recording and mixing that much easier.  Want to use your own outboard gear? It’s as simple as using the wide range of inputs on the back of the Trident 88 to hook up your favorite 500 Series or rackmount equipment and create the sounds you love. 

Despite offering this easy input option, Trident’s mic pres sound incredible. Each Trident 88 comes packed with discrete Class A design mic pre on every channel, which can also be customized with Lundahl transformers to offer an even wider range of sounds.


Trident’s EQ Of Choice

At the center of Trident 88 is a fully sweepable EQ. Featured on every channel of the console, the 88 EQ has four bands (High, High Mid, Low Mid and Low) and follows the lineage of the Trident 80C EQ, where the high and lows are shelving and the mids are peaking. While the console is filled with incredible frequency control options, the Trident 88 once again offers the opportunity to easily bypass this EQ and work within the confines of your favorite equalizer outboard gear.


Premium Master, Monitor And AUX Section

The Trident 88’s master section features eight AUX masters with AFL/PFL Master and level adjustment. Aside from main speaker outs, each console also features two separate ALT monitors that have level controls and off/on switches. When it comes to the Trident 88’s monitor section, there are two mono AUX, in addition to stereo on AUX 7/8. There is also room for two return stereo signals with levels and a mute button.  Working in the AUX section, the console has eight AUX sends with pre or post fade selection, which can be accessed on every single channel.
