Burbank, CA (April 13, 2009)–Spectrasonics has released its virtual instrument, Trilian, the successor to the company’s Trilogy bass module.
According to the company, the new instrument has a much larger core library and features detailed new acoustic, electric and synth basses, as well as enhanced versions of classic Trilogy sounds.
Sporting a new user interface, Trilian is the first 64-bit native software based on Spectrasonics’ Steam Engine and is the first virtual instrument to feature full library integration with the company’s flagship Omnisphere synthesizer.
“At Spectrasonics, we’ve always loved bass sounds,” notes Eric Persing, founder and creative director. “When we started 15 years ago, our very first product was the best-selling Bass Legends sample library. Then in 2002, we introduced Trilogy, the world’s first bass virtual instrument. Today, we are very pleased to announce Trilian, which represents a whole new generation of our bass development. Trilian is built on the Steam Engine that powers Omnisphere, which has allowed us to create the most expressive and flexible bass module we’ve ever made.”
Trilian is set to be released May 18, 2009. The MSRP is $299US/229Euro. All Trilogy customers can upgrade to Trilian for $99US. There is also a special free upgrade offer for Trilogy customers on the Intel-Mac platform and for customers who purchase Trilogy in 2009. Upgrades will be available exclusively through Spectrasonics’ online tech shop.
