Software Compatibility

Most software is compatible with both Mac and Windows computers, but check to make sure.

If you're using Pro Tools, AAX plug-ins (or RTAS for older versions) are what you need. Most other Mac DAWs support AU plug-ins. VST is compatible with a number of Mac and Windows programs. Be sure you choose plug-ins that work with your DAW!

Rich Bass Sounds — the Follow-up to a Classic!

Be ready for incredible bass tracks with Trilian, Spectrasonics' "Total Bass Module" plug-in. Inside, you'll find a huge core library of rich-sounding acoustic, electric, and synth basses — all really playable and immensely tweakable, so you can develop the right bass sound for your tracks. One cool feature in Trilian is its extensive "Round Robin" sampling, which helps to make bass lines with repeated notes sound natural and expressive, instead of mechanical. The follow up to the award-winning Trilogy software bass plug-in, Spectrasonics takes the low-end to new heights, with Trilian!

Trilian takes the enormously popular Trilogy to the next level. Loaded with enhanced versions of all of the original Trilogy bass sounds, Trilian is packed with tons of new acoustic bass, electric bass, and synth bass sounds — all unbelievably rich sounding, and ready to serve as the strong foundation your tracks have been needing.

Sepctrasonics based Trilian on their advanced STEAM Engine technology, first introduced in Omnisphere. What you get, are tremendous expression and realism — Trilian lets you sculpt and adjust all the right controls, to bring your bass tracks to live. Also, because Trilian and Omnisphere are based on the same engine, Spectrasonics made them fully compatible with one another. You can use any of the Trilian sounds right inside Omnisphere, so you can stay in the same environment as you develop everything from bass to melody to ambient pads and effects.

Trilian is all about giving you natural-sounding bass lines when you want them — though you can always take them in your own unique direction using Trilian's integrated FX racks. One feature to help give you those natural lines, though, is Trilian's extensive "Round Robin" sampling feature. When you play a bass line with repeated notes, Trilian plays subtly different samples — that way your tracks sound musical and dynamic.

You'll have no problem finding just the sounds you need. Trilian features Spectrasonics' state-of-the-art browser, which lets you navigate sounds by searching, browsing through attributes/tags, or flipping through images.

Covered for bass

Nice to know i can't do better for bass sounds and don't need to audition any other sounds from various modules. I'm covered with Trilian.

Trilian is Awesome

Love it! Love it! If you Omnisphere, Trilian is the logical next step for you. Resistance is futile. It is easy to use, sounds great, and works just like Omnisphere. If you don't have both of these soft synths you need to get them. You don't have to be a great synth player to get great results.

One word: Amazing

Yet another astonishing release from Persing and Co. When you couple this with Omnisphere, holy $H!T!

5 more stars!

I simply cannot say enough about this product! I bought this to go with Omnisphere, and I couldn't be happier! Terrific sounds, perfect integration with Omnisphere (even gives you the "VIP" library), and I get to know that I'm helping support the Spectrasonics guys and the amazing work they're doing with these products. If you're even thinking about this one, just do it. You won't regret it!

Sweetwater Advice

Aaron Smith

If low end is what you're after, Spectrasonics Trilian is the answer. This is THE library for acoustic, electric and synth bass. I have used this in literally every single session since I added it to my studio. Do yourself a favor and add it to your virtual instrument arsenal. When your next studio session comes around, you'll be giving your bassist the day off.
