    Just got this last week, absolutely love it. Great improvement over Trilogy, and that hardcore bass sounds fucking awesome!

    Thanks dude!
    What i did was load 3 channels
    One was hardcore finger sustain
    One was hardcore finger Gliss(short slide in)
    One was hardcore finger slide out
    Set up a midi track and the the channel output to ANY
    Then started programming and when i wanted a note gliss i set the channel to that specific note in the cubase info bar.
    Really simple to use and its very versatile for all kinds of bass sounds.

    I don't know how low the sample were recorded at. I've used it down as low as Bb, sounds a bit flabby on some of the presets but not too bad in the mix. Sometimes I play these notes up an octave, I'd be interested to know if others do the same thing.

    Sounds fucking cool! Nice one brother! I haven't tried the Bongo 5 string yet, there's a lot of them, I'm going to give it a go.

    Had it for half a week (along with Superior 2.0, and waiting for my Cubase 5 as we speak), it sounds awesome i think i'm in love !

    Check this out :

    http://www.netmusicians.org/index.php?section=id&value=6251

    Backing track for 36 Crazyfists' Bloodwork song, only the first minute of the song. I used a Guitar Pro score, transposed it to my tuning (C#), and exported the bass and drums midi parts in my DAW (Reaper) to have them played by my bass and drums VSTi, namely Trilian and Superior Drummer 2, that i hardly tweaked.

    I will post a version with guitars soon.

    EDIT : version with (sloppily played) guitars added :

    From what I've seen the library is quite big (4-5 dvds?), is there an option to install only part of it in your hard disk?

    No you have to install the whole library right away, unless you try the sneaky way and stop after DVD 1 for instance but i'm not sure o what you get doign that (full software but only a couple of full basses, and one bass with some samples missing maybe, and some missing entire basses ?).

    Though there is this interesting feature which is the lite mode, where you can run a lighter version (like no round robin, way less samples to load, etc...) of Trilian to give your cpu some rest. You can switch back and forth between the regular mode and the lite mode almost in a snap IIRR, and you can define how "lite" you wanna go with the lite mode.

    This VSTi is awesome! But it's quite big for me. How about EWQL HardcoreBass? Does anybody try HardcoreBass? I have a friend who want to re-sell his HardcoreBass DVDs for me with a half price.
