Massive Collection of Essential Synth Sounds

Loaded with 266 distinct synthesizer emulations, Best Service's Titan 2 is a real workhorse of a virtual instrument, both when you produce music in your studio and when you want to take soft synths onstage. A stellar preset library makes it easy to find the sounds you need, and in-depth editing plus great effects allow you to tailor your sounds to your needs. Extensive MIDI mapping, as well as powerful arpeggiation and step sequencing make performing with Titan 2 a blast, but possibly the most impressive thing about Titan 2 (aside from the sheer value of this plug-in) is how incredibly easy it is on your computer, allowing you to stack up as many synth sounds as you need.

Best Service Titan 2 Synthesizer Virtual Instrument at a Glance:
  • Packed with premium sounds, presets, and more
  • Impressively easy on your computer's CPU
  • Fueled by Engine 2 sample player software
Packed with premium sounds, presets, and more

Without sacrificing sound quality, Best Service managed to pack the 80GB sample library included in Titan 2 into 25GB of data, but that hardly conveys the awesome scope of this instrument. Inside, you'll find 11,000 synthesizer multi-samples, equating to about 200,000 single samples distributed across 266 unique synthesizer emulations. This includes 1,800 drum and effects sounds, which you can access via 12,800 excellent presets. That may sound daunting, but they're sorted by categories that make it easy to find the type of sound you're looking for. Top it off with 1,500 rhythmical sequences; 2,000 arpeggiator, sequencer, modulation, and effects presets; and a convolution reverb with 1,000 impulse responses, and you'll never run out of inspiration.

Impressively easy on your computer's CPU

With all of that content on top of an already sophisticated sound-shaping engine, it's reasonable to assume that Titan 2 is a bit of a resource pig, but you'd be wrong. By using what can best be described as modern programming wizardry, Best Service somehow managed to keep Titan 2's CPU and disk access draw minimal. We didn't believe it at first either, so when Titan 2 found its way to Sweetwater, we started stacking up synths. Dozens of instances later, we still hadn't made the CPU meter move. What's more, new sounds load almost instantly, and you'll never hear the switch between sounds as you play. So, if you're looking for a powerful soft synth that sounds great and won't tank your session, even if you take it onstage, then Titan 2 is it.

Fueled by Engine 2 sample player software

From its easy-to-use interface to its powerful sound-shaping tools, Best Service's Engine 2 sample player lends impressive strength to Titan 2. Thanks to its capabilities, you'll find patches with multiple dynamic layers and up to 61 key zones. All parameters in Titan 2 are fully MIDI mappable, opening up an extended range of real-time expression, while Pro-Edit mode lets you dive into the nuts and bolts of your sounds. In addition to the awesome arpeggiation and polyphonic step sequencer, Titan 2 includes a Randomizer and an Attacker for added sonic variety. Finally, there's a complete Auto-Playback section, which lets you explore chord and polyphonic arrangements.

More synths than you can shake a stick at!

I purchased this on something of a whim when I realized that a third-party sample library for Kontakt I'd intended to purchase had some deal breaking issues, but I had the $ to do something with, so Titan 2 became the alternate choice. There are essentially two libraries in Titan 2: One is the Titan 1 library (which, near as I can tell, is derived primarily of material from vintage hardware synths, i.e., Moog, Oberheim, Yamaha, etc.) and the other is the Titan 2 library (which, near as I can tell, comes from samples of assorted contemporary software synths(!)). The names in the former library are not helpful (they're categorized, i.e., "basses, sub" and then only numbered, i.e., 1, 2, etc.) and the names of sounds in the latter library are cryptic enough that if you're not a major soft synth geek (I'm only a mild one), you may not know what the source of the sounds are. Gripes about organization and naming aside, the sounds themselves are excellent in many cases. You'll occasionally stumble on a group of sounds that seem same-y as you go through them, but there are some real gems throughout both libraries. The sheer number of presets (12,000+) is almost overwhelming. If you plan on going through them all in one sitting... don't kid yourself. You're gonna need a couple of long weekends to do it. LOL. There are some top notch effects (including arppegiator and step sequence...though don't start playing with those unless you have time to burn! LOL) and sound shaping tools within the interface itself (nearly all of which can be activated/deactivated) and the option exists to transform that obnoxious stereo woo-woo lead into a more manageable-in-a-mix mono sound with a single mouse click.If you're looking for a good all-rounder on the synthesizer sounds front and you don't mind digging through categorized sounds to find what you want, this is a solid choice. If you're looking for an all purpose ROMpler, this is NOT what you want. Suffice it to say, between this and NI's Komplete 10, I have all the synthesizer sounds I'm ever likely to want/need. (One last thing: I ordered this at 2:00 A.M. on a Saturday, and within five minutes I had an e-mail confirmation of my purchase AND the initialization code required to begin the download process on the Best Service website. 90 minutes -and an account creation/registration w/ Best Service- later, I was installing Titan 2 and five hours after that... I realized it was daylight outside. LOL. Sweetwater never ceases to deliver amazing service, which is why I keep coming back to them whenever I have the funds to grab another music-related bit.)
