The acoustic basses are the best! - Reviews Spectrasonics Trilian

Spectrasonics Trilian is a plug in that can be used on a Mac or a PC, it is a virtual bass instrument plug in with acoustic, synthesized and electric bass sounds that are perfect for any genre of music. Being that we make different styles of music from Pop to Rock it was great to have a VST that could emulate any sound that we needed for that particular track. The Trilian has given us so many different types of basses! All of the acoustic guitars are really amazing, I have used them in about 20 different songs so far and they are way better than another other VST plug in that I currently had at the time. I was using Hypersonic for bass before I had Trilian and it was ok for a while and I actually thought it was great until I got my hands on Trilian.


Installing Trillian was very easy, it installs just like any other VST does on my Macbook running 10.5.4 OS. It was quick and easy to install. I purchased this directly from Spectrosonics and it only took a few minutes before they sent me a link to download it. I was at first not into spending 300 bucks on a guitar software but after using it for a year now I look back and see just how many songs I have used this on. I have gotten well more than what I paid for it and I will continue to use it a lot.


The Synthesized bass sounds are the weakest basses in this VST though, but they are still usable. I will still use the Hypersonic synth basses with Guitar Rig to get the perfect synth bass though. The electric basses are pretty good and they sound similar to the electric basses that are on my Korg keyboard.
This software is a great buy, and I am very happy that I purchased it last year. It has brought our bass sounds to a new level and gave us realistic bass when we could not bring in an actual bass player
