The highly detailed Acoustic Upright Bass is one of the
highlights of this instrument. Because of Trilogy's unique interface, you can
get a wide variety of gorgeous tones from this Bass. This is made possible
because the interface has separate control of the Neumann U-47 Tube Microphone
signal and the Direct Pickup signal, which was sampled through a vintage Neve
1083 Console. This stunning sounding acoustic is chromatically sampled, with
multi-dynamic velocity switching. The hardest velocity in every Bass patch in
Trilogy brings in real bass glisses, similar in concept to the idea
Spectrasonics pioneered on the Hans Zimmer Guitar libraries. An acoustic Martin
Dreadnought Bass Guitar is also available in the Acoustic section -perfect for
those "unplugged" sessions!
Trilogy's innovative True Staccato
technique lets you play repeated notes on the Acoustic and Electric basses in
real-time with a whole new level of realistic phrasing, and finally allows for
repeated notes that sound completely natural like a bass player, and not like
the dreaded "machine gun" sampler effect!
selection of Electric Basses are from all new, painstakingly recorded sessions,
and features classic 4, 5 and 6 string models, performed in Fingered, Picked,
Muted, Rock & Roll, Slapping, Ballad, Fretless and R&B techniques
through rare, custom-made tube preamps. Special variations are presented
including Harmonics, Glisses, Fuzz, Trills, FX and thousands of Slides! Both
Modern and Vintage "Old School" Electrics are available, providing a wide array
of tones for different musical settings. All the patches are mapped the same
way, so that one sequence will work with any bass you select.
thousands of samples used in these instruments, mapped with multiple dynamics
for amazing expression. You don't have to "assemble" Bass parts with Trilogy,
it's extremely playable as a highly expressive real-time instrument too!
To complete the picture, every Acoustic and Electric Bass in Trilogy has
a special "Finger Noise" release layer with release triggering, that gives these
basses amazing realism -perfectly simulating the fretboard response of the real
bass. When a note is released, the Finger Noise layer triggers an appropriate
noise sample from among hundreds of tiny fret noises, subtle string scrapes,
squeeks, x-notes, taps and mutes, which add a user controllable "human"
imperfection element to your performance. You can also easily control how much
of this effect you want, since the noise effect is on its own layer that can be
controlled from the Trilogy Mixer.
Trilogy is one of the
most awesome Bass Synthesizers ever made! Have you ever struggled with trying
to fit your synth bass sounds to sit in a track properly? The sound of Trilogy
is not only ultra-fat, but it sits great in a mix. That's because of the high-resolution core samples from legendary Analog Bass Synths like the
Minimoog, Roland Juno 60, Roland TB-303, Roland SH-101, Oberheim SEM, Moog
Taurus, OSCar, Virus, Yamaha CS-80, Arp Odyssey and 2600, Studio
Electronics SE-1, Omega and ATC Tone Chameleon, Sequential Circuits Pro One,
the mighty Moog Voyager and many others! Trilogy's multimode resonant filters
allow you total control over the sound, while still retaining the original
character and power of the classic analog instruments.
programmable layer has its own multimode resonant filters, four LFOs, three
envelopes, adjustable sample start and matrix modulation. There's also an
additional master filter for quick tone shaping.
In addition to
gigabytes of high-resolution sampled vintage synth waveforms, and thick
multimode resonant filters for each layer, Trilogy has the rare feature of
smooth analog synth-style Legato triggering and Glide that software samplers
lack. This capability allows for Synth Bass sounds that truely play like a
vintage analog synth. This feature can also be used with any of the Electric or
Acoustic Basses, for unique hybrid Bass sounds that you've never heard before!
Whether you're looking to anchor your mixes with a giant vault of
amazing Bass presets, or you're searching for a versatile instrument to create
your own unique Bass sounds…there's no other Bass instrument out there with the
tone, variety and flexibility of Trilogy -it's simply in a class by itself.
"Once again, Spectrasonics have delivered some seriously
high-quality, musically playable sounds in an easy-to-use format and at an
affordable price. In short, Trilogy is versatile, convenient, and an absolute
steal." (SOUND ON SOUND)
"We like Trilogy
a lot. As with Atmosphere and Stylus, the key things here are the sounds
themselves and the ease with which they can be ‘Frankensteined’ into something
wholly new." (COMPUTER MUSIC - PERFORMANCE AWARD)
"Trilogy really is a
winner. I suppose the only question you should be asking about any of
Spectrasonics VST instruments is why it's taken this long for someone to do it
in the first place. For the moment though, let's just be rather grateful they
have." (FUTURE MUSIC - PLATINUM AWARD)
"For most people, Trilogy will probably be the only dedicated bass
synth they’ll ever need to buy. It incorporates just about every useful bass
sound you could think of and enables you to combine, layer and re-shape these
into entirely new sounds through its highly accessible interface. One could not
reasonably ask for more." (MUSIC TECH MAGAZINE)
