Trilian’s basses come equipped with custom controls that give you lots of creative ways to modify them. Omnisphere Integration lets you expand Trilian’s sonic possibilities even further by applying Omnisphere’s sound-shaping and performance features.

Here are just a few examples of the things you can do:

Combine Sounds

Using Omnisphere’s multiple Parts, you can combine Trilian and Omnisphere sounds or combine more than one Trilian sound. It’s important to remember that many Trilian and Omnisphere sounds contain thousands of samples and that certain synthesis tools and effects can be very CPU-intensive.

You can use Stack Mode or Live Mode to create useful combinations of sounds by using keyboard or velocity splits, layering, or applying Part-switching to a Multi in Live Mode.

In this example, we show Trilian’s “Mango Fandango” loaded in Part 1, Omnisphere’s playable texture “Distant Memories” in Part 2, and Part 3 uses “Tranquilimba,” a rhythmic kalimba-based sound, also from Omnisphere. Using Stack Mode, the three parts play as one layered sound.

Using the same Multi in Live Mode, you can instantly switch between the three parts using keyswitches.

Use the Arpeggiator

You can apply Omnisphere’s Arpeggiator to Trilian sounds to create rhythmic patterns. Here, the Trilian Patch, “Baritone Octobass” uses Omnisphere’s Arpeggiator

Use Omnisphere’s FX Units to Process Sounds

You can use any of Omnisphere’s great-sounding FX units to modify Trilian sounds or get under the hood and tweak what is already in use. Trilian already utilizes many of Omnisphere’s FX Units, but there are lots more! Try a wide variety of high-quality effects to create sounds that range from hard-hitting to ethereal.

In the example below, the Patch, “Picking the Harmonic Belltones” has been processed with Innerspace, an FX unit that creates unique spaces and resonances, and then the signal is fed into a Megaphpne ambience in Thriftshop, an FX unit that models cheap speakers and cheesy-sounding spaces.

Apply Omnisphere’s Powerful Synthesis Tools

Any of the synthesis features inside Omnisphere 2 can be used with Trilian Patches or Soundscources to create unique sounds. In the example below, Granular is applied to a hybrid Fretless bass sound to create an alien choir.

These are just a few of the things you can do with Trilian inside Omnisphere. There are an infinite number of possibilities to explore.
