The best Bass Virtual Instrument on the Market! - Reviews Spectrasonics Trilian

Trillian is a Acoustic/Electric/Electronic Bass Virtual Instrument from Spectrasonics with over 34 GB of samples.

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 to create this single instrument! All this combined with Trilian’s high-resolution streaming of the sounds puts a depth of realism into performances that is truly inspiring.

I’ve used this in Logic Pro 8 and 9, in 32 and 64 bit mode without a problem.

I have a Mac Pro 2.66 Quad Core with 8 GB of ram and a White Macbook with Intel Core 2 Duo Cpu with 4 GB of Ram.
The installation is really easy and the the manual is well written.


The software reacts really well, however to use its full potential you need to have at least 4 gb of ram. With 8 gb and in 64 bit it works like a charm.


I've used this in my home studio for a lot of different projects.
From Pop rock, to Electronica, to Heavy rock the VI always suited perfect in the mix.

A bit pricey, but you will have a Class A product, that was created with an exceptional cure of details. Especially for the Acoustic and Electric Basses, you will have all the nuances and different playing styles available in the original instrument.

It can be a little complex in the begininning and some patches are really heavy on the RAM, but it will give you stunning results.

I used extensively Trilogy, its predecessor, and I can say without doubt that Spectrasonics it's my favourite Virtual Instrument Software house.

Always ahead of the time in terms of features and innovations, and with a stellar sound quality.
