"Yet Another TRIUMPH"

"Trilian is yet another triumph for Spectrasonics, offering an exhaustive collection of some of the best bass sounds we've ever heard... Easily the most comprehensive source of bass sounds yet produced. From delicate and expressive acoustic models through earth-shattering electric and synth basses, Trilian produces superb results that define and enhance the low end of your mix."

"The ONLY Bass Plug-In You Need? ABSOLUTELY."

"Could Trilian be the only bass plug-in you need? Absolutely. In fact, it could be much more besides. Its forte is with bass and if you're drawn to its electric and upright 'side', then you'll find plenty of what you're looking for, as the plug-in produces stunning, lifelike performances with sumptuous bass recordings which come alive under your fingers... this is a truly comprehensive instrument which I can't recommend highly enough... if you can't find the bass you need here, you're doing something wrong."

"a SERIOUS piece of work..."

"Trilian's new acoustic upright basses are perhaps the most intimately detailed sampled instruments I have ever heard... Trilian's Chapman Stick—whose range extends from bass through guitar— is a serious piece of work, and had me channeling (or at least attempting to channel) Tony Levin... The remarkable attention to detail pays off in a big way, as these instruments shine in exposed solos and in dense mixes."

"Sets the GOLD STANDARD..."

"Trilian is a musical instrument, and begs to be played... The attention to detail in the sample library is scary, the voicing parameters are powerful, the user interface operates very smoothly, and the sound is amazing. Trilian isn't just the best bass instrument on the market, it sets the gold standard for years to come."

"Huge Musical Power"

"A classy instrument with very wide applications and huge musical power... Auditioning the range of bass guitars recorded for Trilian is like taking a stroll through the history of rock and pop... Spectrasonics have gone to town with the flagship Studio Bass...The acoustic bass recorded for Trilian is world class... an amazing array of synth bass timbres... a worthy (and far more capable) successor to the 70s generation of analogue synths... Trilian is an investment that won't let you down."

"Enormously POWERFUL and DEEP..."

"Trilian is an enormously powerful and deep instrument that can keep you busy for hours. Every patch, be it synth or string based, sounds brilliant in isolation, making it great for upfront 'lead' bass sounds; and the performance features and effects enable you to create unique and impressive tones with ease."

"A Dream Come True..."

"Trilian is a dream come true for anyone seeking acoustic, electric or synth bass sounds. The integration into Omnisphere is not only intelligent but also incredibly useful. With the massive amount of sounds in here, you'd be hard pressed to not find what you're looking for."

"The Bass Fanatic's Bass Instrument..."

"In typical Spectrasonics fashion, Trilian goes the extra mile... I figured Trilian would be great fun to review and then would likely sit on my hard drive. Nope. This is the bass fanatic's bass instrument, and it's going to get a lot of use. Spectrasonics is synonymous with top quality instruments; Trilian remains true to that legacy."

VI Magazine  


"It Draws You In..."

"What strikes you right away is not just the tone of the basses but the details—release and transition sounds, legato transitions, rattles and scrapes... The mark of a great virtual instrument is that it draws you in so you don't want to stop playing it. Trilian is in that category."

Keyboard Player  


"The quality is SKY-HIGH"

"What does it sound like? Well, the range of sounds on offer is, quite frankly, staggering... The quality is sky-high... Not only have Spectrasonics selected and sourced some superb examples of the instruments involved, they've engaged some of the world's top players to produce the samples... The versatility offered here by Trilian really makes you think about just how a live bassist or synth player would play his part and gives you the means to recreate it, not just in its basic sound, but in the actual playing style... "

"Words Can't Describe It"

"Words can't describe it, you really have to hear it. 5 out of 5... this is just a must-have for bass... There really is no bass sound in here that isn't covered in here, and covered well... There are things that you may not even realize are missing from your bass sounds/instruments, until you play with Trilian!"

"The Possibilities are INCREDIBLE"

"The numerous possibilities to create unique sounds within Trilian, or when combined with Omnisphere or Stylus RMX, are incredible... Trilian will satisfy the appetite of a musician's bass instrument desires... You'd be hard pressed to find any bass software that can compete on this level."

"As If You Had MARCUS MILLER In Your Studio"

"It's the bass engine to end all bass engines... The sounds are just as if you had Marcus Miller in your studio with you... If you had to purchase this number of basses, synths or stomp boxes, you would have to be worth as much as Eric Clapton!"

"IDEAL for Electronic Genres"

Trilian covers every aspect of bass design, from synth bass tones, to acoustic and electric basses — For the dance market, the synth bass sounds are something else. Trilian features some pretty hefty filter and oscillating effects, and the resonance and modulation is ideal for electronic genres. In fact, some of the sub bass sounds, and the bass growls, were truly stomach churning. The guys at Spectrasonic used hundreds of synth sound sources to create the bass sounds, emulating some of the world's most exotic and coveted hardware synthesizers."
