    Anyone use any of these? I am looking for good bass sounds and trilogy sounds interesting- also atmosphere with so many pads could be a good complement to my set up. I am running Digital performer 4.12 (mac, only, of course) and I do have mach five soft sampler plus garrital personal orchestra. Another option would be a bass and/or a pad library for mach five. Any good candidates out there? As I said, my arsenal is lacking on quality basses and pads and I'm looking to expand my palette.

    thanxs! :D

    Or what about Dan dean Giga bass giga CD? Its about half the price of trilogy and I can use it with mach Five- any users out there?

    i have used atmosphere when i used it to score a amateur sci-fi movie, it has some incredible use if you are proficient with understanding scales and music theory, i would recommend it any day...

    Played around with all three of the Spetrasonics plugs at a buddies house.

    Stylus and Trilogy are on my wishlist. I know I can use them right away.

    The amount of useable pads was overwhelming to me.

    The biggest drawback is that each instance of the instruments must load a several Gigabytes of .dat file, can take over 30 seconds to load.

    So if you make a song with Stylus, Trilogy, and mabe a couple of instances of Atmosphere, could take a couple of minutes for the song to load after saving.

    Small price to pay for such great sounds.

    cool on the atmosphere- on the trilogy, how does it differ from getting a giga CD that i can use with say mach five? is the triology instrument better than a regular giga type sampler? do you have extra controllers?
