I'm new to the forum and was hoping someone would be able to answer some questions for me about Trilogy.
I am a hip hop and electronica producer from Canberra, Australia and I'm thinking very seriously about buying the Trilogy module from Spectrasonics. I have two questions I would like answered before I make my decision and I'm hoping you won't mind taking the time to answer them for me. I have looked online and read Spectrasonic's FAQs but can't find the information I'm after.
I also sometimes write gear reviews for a local free music mag called BMA and will possibly do a review of Trilogy as I'm so impressed with the sound. You'll find my questions below to be technical I guess (though not for you guys of course) because that's the angle I usually approach my reviews from. I also like to give the readers some information not covered elsewhere.
I have heard Trilogy in one of my associate's studio and was very impressed with the sound quality. VERY impressed. Listening to the basic synth waveforms I was pleased to note that there were no harsh artifacts present as I played the keyboard up into the higher registers, as one would expect from a sampler pitchshifting a single waveform. So I must assume that these are multisampled. Speaking specifically about the synth waveforms only... how many times has each been multisampled?
Also, I can hear a fair bit of movement in these oscillations (which sounds very nice) so I'm guessing that each waveform isn't simply a single-cycle loop. How long is each sample (in cycles or seconds) before the looping begins?
Thanks in advance for your help :-)
