An (un)surprisingly amazing softsynth
I bought Trilian last out of the full Spectrasonics suite, thinking "oh, I already have lots of bass sounds, I won't need this!" I was very wrong. Trilian, simply put, is BRILLIANT! The richness, detail, and clarity in the samples is amazing, and you get a wonderful selection of synth basses, fretless basses, electric basses, everything is represented and it is wonderful! Definitely one of the best softsynths in the past decade.
Utterly amazing acoustic and electric bass emulation.
When it comes to real physical instruments, nothing will ever sound better than the real thing. But if you are looking for a pretty mind-blowing emulation of acoustic and electric basses, look no further. The subtlety and nuance Spectrasonics have managed to capture with this is jaw-dropping. There are some classic synth patches on here too, but bear in mind they are sample-based and not from a synth engine (like Omnisphere). They still sound pretty excellent though. You can also load Trilian patches in Omnisphere 2, so when you pair the two together you have a really versatile and professional-sounding set-up. Spectrasonics are the best!
Versatile and near future proof!
I bought this years ago in hopes of getting an electric P and J bass sound for synth keys. After some tweaking I did get that sound - although some tweaking was done in post. However, in the years following I began to get more into EDM and electronic-experimental production, and this is where this VST really shines! I've used this for almost every project I've done for the past 7 years. Everything from jazz to rock, from EDM to exploratory - this will do it all! Highly recommend.
