Tob takes Trilian on a nasty little Hip-Hop spin. The clever thing here is that all the sounds are coming from Trilian, including all the blips, groovy arpeggiated sweeps and squeeky fifth lines too. Definitely shows Trilian's power to move the hind quarters! Some freaky Stylus RMX work here too....

J.S. Bach on Trilian? Dave Scoggin takes the Acoustic Basses to see the master with beautiful results. The Pipe Organ sound is a custom synth preset of Dave's, but the rest is all Trilian.

From our session with legendary keyboardists George Duke and Greg Phillinganes. This jam is long, but well worth it....and keep listening after the first ending for "part 2" where things start getting really nuts!

In this soulful jam, George greases it up on Trilian's Clean Fender Electric Bass and Greg rips through a history of soul/boogie riffs on Wurlitzer and Acoustic Piano -with Bob Wilson's trademark grooving on drums.

Don't miss the artist video of this session on the videos page....it's priceless!

This one comes with a built-in party! Tob brings back the glorious grease of the 70's by serving up the thick Old School Funk bass in a mix that Bootsy would surely dig.

All the synths and clav sounds are coming from quirky ways to use Trilian too. Really shows you how much fun can be had with just Trilian and Stylus RMX. Even the organ is coming from Trilian by running it through a leslie effect!

Tob cranks Trilian to "11" here with a great example of the Classic Rock Pick Bass, by running it through Amplitube. You get ultimate flexibilty in tone, since the amp sound isn't "locked" into the raw samples, so you can use Trilian's built-in amps or external ones. All the synth stuff and guitarish parts in the bridge are Trilian too.

Tobias whips up another batch of fun here that features Trilian's "Moogy" side. All the synths in this tune are coming from Trilian, it's a real showcase for how smooth, fat and analog Trilian can sound. In fact, if you didn't know that this was all virtual...I think it would be very hard to guess that this wasn't done with a bunch of vintage analogs. Love that Stevie Wonder style-ending too!

One of the most unique Basses in Trilian is the Martin Dreadnought Acoustic Bass Guitar, which is great in more exposed settings like this - perfect for those unplugged moments. The Guitar is live on this one, Stylus RMX for percussion and drums, and everything else (even the pseudo-Wurltizer) is from Trilian.

Tobias decided to poke a little fun at us LA types! He definitely nails the vibe and feel of 70s/80s "Happy Jazz" ala Carlton, Graydon and the Crusaders. What's really remarkable though, is that this whole track is Trilian, and he's getting so much mileage out of it beyond using it for the Electric Bass part....All the higher guitar and keyboard parts are treated with clever FX to transform Trilian and Stylus RMX into a tight little slick "Baked Potato" band. :-)

EP takes us on a late-night "Chocolate City" journey back in time, with a very good example of using the True Staccato technique to create a realistic repeated note Bass line using the "Old School Fingered" Bass. It's a cool and warm Fender/Music Man type of sound, and Eric played this primarily in real-time. The mellow Rhodes sound is coming from the Jaco Harmonic Tines patch (!), and the strings are coming from Omnisphere. Groovy!

Beautiful example of Trilian's Retro 60's Epiphone Viola Bass, which is very similar to the classic Hofner Beatle Bass, but with a rounder and more versatile low end. Larry played this track completely live from his MIDI Guitar triggering Trilian for Bass, tracking with drummer Tony James for the Artist series videos.

This track is all Trilian and really shows how it can be used as an amazing all around synth for Club tracks. You can hear the quality of Trilian's filters really well in this track. As usual, another highly creative, and mind-expanding track from UK remixer Adrian Clarida.

Cool "concept" demo from Tom (aka:Atlas Plug), that shows off the vast potential and beauty of having all three types of Bass all in one very powerful instrument.

The demo starts with some Electric Bass harmonics, and an Acoustic Bass line. Then a TB-303 "Acid" sound is added, and soon a Fretless counter line. Pretty soon, more an more synth textures are woven in to create a powerful linear force. Also shows how cool Trilian is for Synth lines very well. This demo is also a showcase for Tom's considerable Stylus RMX drum programming chops!

Created with 15 Trilian parts using many different fretless sounds, articulations and FX in creative ways, to create a rich tapestry and layered result. Hans makes very clever use of the Harmonics and Harmonic FX to use them as Chords and Melodic lines. He also uses the Fretless X-notes to build the groove subdivision. His programming of the Jaco True Staccato sound is very realistic too, as well as the multiple expressive solo lines that each use a different Bass. There's also a fat Minimoog Ballad synth Bass at the bottom of this mix, that really anchors everything. Great example of how you can really compose with Bass sounds using Trilian.

Big, Dark and just a little bit scary! Diego shows a whole bunch of different Basses in this track, starting with the Blown OSCar sound. He then adds some of the Finger Funk Electrics and ends with building into some of the radical sync shreds that Trilian can do.

Its great how Chris starts this demo with just the superfat Moog Voyager sound, and then builds more and more textures on the same line. This is really only possible with Trilogy because there are so many types of synth textures represented (Moog, Roland, Oberheim, OSCar, ARP and many others).

Good one for a video game!

One of the coolest things about this demo is that the Trilian Bass parts were played by Larry on his MIDI Guitar, which really makes a big difference in the realism of those bass parts. This is featuring the Modern Funk Bass, which was originally from Trilogy, but also appears in Trilian.

Tobias gives a great example of using Trilian, Omnisphere and RMX together in a modern scoring setting - nice variety of Synth tones and arpeggiation lines from Trilian in a convincing "action cue" kind of setting. The percussion and drums are all coming from Stylus RMX, and the ambient vocals and granular textures are coming from Omnisphere....everything else is Trilian.

Showcasing Trilian in a more "Zimmer"-style cue, Tob creatively features the Picked Electric Basses by using delays and then accenting the main part with Drones and Pulses from Trilian's synth section. This is a good example of how effective Trilian can be in a non-pop setting. Everything is Trilian, except Omnisphere for the strings and RMX for the percussion and Noise FX.
