Trilian's next generation STEAM engine technology allows powerful integration with Spectrasonics flagship Omnisphere® synthesizer. After many years of development, Spectrasonics is proud to release the brand new virtual instrument Trilian®, the long-awaited successor to the award-winning Trilogy bass module.
