Spectrasonics Trilian

In the end I resisted all BF stuff and bought Spectrasonics Trilian! I have spent the day ploughing through the Groove 3 Trilian course to get the most from my investment.

Would love to hear from other users. I’m primarily an audio person, guitar player and singer, but a year ago after taking massive of soundings from the great people on this forum, I plunged in and bought Omnisphere. It was a choice between that and Kontakt...which I still haven’t got but will one day. I have used Omnisphere in a lot of my compositions since and I am so glad I bought it. I nearly went for Kontakt again this BF but I honestly think (hope!) that Trilian will bring something new to my music. I’m a reasonable bass guitar player, but what seems possible with Trilian is way beyond. Super excited.

Any experiences Trilan folks would like to share?
Cheers

    Started with Trilogy, upgraded to Trillian.
    It’s deep, not sure if I’ve even scratched the surface.
    I do love it.

    I bought Trilian only because I lacked a good acoustic bass. I wasn't at all interested in the synth basses it offers, as Zebra can perform that duty much more efficiently. I also didn't care that I could pull up Trilian patches in Omnisphere.
     
    However, after a couple years with Trilian under my belt, I find I'm using it more and more, and not just the acoustic basses that I originally got it for. There is an instrument called Hardcore that I really like for heavier genres. But still can't get excited about the synth stuff.
     
    I have two complaints re Trilian. First, the samples are huge and take a long time to load. Second, it's not as easy to program as a good Kontakt library. If I'm going to feature the bass prominently with lots of articulations, I'll usually fall back to one of my old Kontakt-based favorites such as Orange Tree Samples' awesome Rickenbacker.
     
    Trilian's integration with Omnisphere is kinda OK. I hate clicking on a patch and not realizing it's a Trilian patch until it becomes obvious when the "loading" progress bar takes forever. Same thing with loading Keyscape patches within Omnisphere. There are a lot of cool possibilities with layering the three Spectrasonics instruments, but I am too impatient to explore them fully.


    All else is in doubt, so this is the truth I cling to.
