With its comprehensive design, Trilian brings many different types of Bass together into one extraordinary-sounding virtual instrument. It is designed from the ground up to be the most versatile bass virtual instrument available today with a new level of expressive, realtime performance for acoustic and electric basses - plus cutting-edge synth bass tones with powerful editing and extraordinary sound quality. Trilian is the successor to Spectrasonics' award-winning Trilogy bass instrument, offering deeper control of musical expression and much greater flexibility of sound shaping. Trilian's 34GB library is 10 times the size of Trilogy and features all new acoustic, electric, and synth basses.

Powered by next-generation STEAM Engine technology, Trilian is the first instrument to feature core library integration with Spectrasonics' flagship Omnisphere synth-allowing Trilian's sounds to be used within the Omnisphere environment for further sound design and keyboard/bass splits.

Performance
The new acoustic and electric basses in Trilian are sampled at an extremely high level of detail. The combination of the software's intuitive, automatic selection of legato and release articulations as the user plays-and the extensive Round-Robin variations introduced for natural-sounding bass lines with repeated notes-create a more dynamic and subtle playing experience. Newly developed multisampled dynamic slides let notes realistically slide from one to another. Each of the new basses feature multichannel mixing between phase-locked microphone/amplifier and direct outputs of each bass.

Bass Instruments
Over sixty different 4-, 5-, 6- and 8-string electric basses are presented in fingered, picked, fretless, slapped, tapped, and muted technique variations - providing a huge variety of sounds for any musical genre. Highlights of the new electric basses include a Music Man 5-string Studio Bass, Chapman Stick, Lakland Rock P-Bass, Clean Fender Jazz Bass, a Hardcore Rock Bass, a Retro 1960's Epiphone Viola Bass, and much more.

Trilian's stunning new Acoustic Bass is the most detailed instrument Spectrasonics has ever released, with 4 audio channels and over 21,000 samples in just this one instrument. All this combined with Trilian's high-resolution streaming of the sounds puts a depth of realism into performances that is truly inspiring.

Sound Creation
For Synth sounds, Trilian features newly developed 4-Pole Juicy and Power Filter algorithms with oscillating resonance that are ideal for electronic bass. Hundreds of synth sound sources were created using over 30 exotic and highly coveted hardware synthesizers-from the original Moog Taurus Pedals to the latest boutique analog modular synthesizers. A multitude of extremely powerful editing controls are available for sound design-including the FlexMod modulation system, Dual Filters with more than 19 filter types, 6 multistage looping envelopes, 6 full-featured LFOs, dual morphing modulation, modulatable FX racks, and much more.

Trilian's FX racks include all of the renowned FX processors from Omnisphere and Stylus RMX- including a wide variety of amp and speaker models, distortions, dynamics processors, equalizers, chorus, phasers, flangers, delays, reverbs, unique specialty FX, and more.

Legacy
As Spectrasonics' next-generation bass instrument, Trilian includes enhanced, remastered versions of Trilogy's core library-taking it to a new level of sound and expression. As a special bonus, Spectrasonics' original "Bass Legends" multisamples have also been remastered and included in the Trilian library, featuring Marcus Miller, John Patitucci, and Abraham Laboriel (bass sounds which some hardware synth users may remember from popular Roland Xpansion boards and the classic MBD-1 rack bass module).
