Titan, de grootste en meest uitgebreide Synthesizer Sound Collectie aller tijden!
De ontwikkeling en sampling van deze set geschiedde uiterst nauwgezet en over een periode van niet minder dan 10 jaar! TITAN biedt 5500 multisamples, met de beste klanken van maar liefst 200 (!!) klassieke Analoge Synthesizers en modulaire systemen, de grootste en bekendste digitale synths en Workstations van de jaren ‘80 en ‘90, maar ook de nieuwste virtuele instrumenten en hedendaagse synthesizers: alles in één massieve plugin!
Dat betekent maarliefst 40 jaar aan synthesizergeschiedenis en klankvariatie: de dikste (en grootste) verzameling klanken en stijlen ooit! Bij de totstandkoming van Titan is nadrukkelijk gelet op behoud van de unieke klank en karaktereigenschappen van ieder individueel instrument: daarom zijn de instrumenten deels gesampled met hun eigen, originele effecten en filters: veel daarvan kan eenvoudigweg niet worden gereproduceerd in het virtuele domein!
Alle instrumenten werden nauwgezet gesampled en gelooped, en pasklaar afgeleverd in combinatie met de geweldige Best Service ENGINE.

.....Titan won’t dazzle you with reverb-laden one-finger wonders, and it can sound reserved when compared to some ROMplers. However, as thomann a high-quality source of bread-and-butter patches, it fulfils its role admirably, and the Engine interface offers plenty of potential for layering and effecting the sounds yourself.
Titan is an incredibly useful tool to have in your sonic pallet, in fact it is amazing to have every decent patch from 200 famous, analogue synths recorded beautifully and at your fingertips for instant recall. The strings are really lush and edgy, there are some great bass sounds and the synths are very usable, it sounds great in the mix. It brings a smile to flick through the patches and hear the sounds from all the classic 70s and 80s electro records like Depeche Mode and Gary Numan! If you are looking for a comprehensive library of analogue sounds and inspiring patches, Titan is the synth plugin of choice.
Marc JB (of Bimbo Jones)
Titan brings together more than 5000 sounds from the last 20 years of synthesis history. Mark Cousins weights it up.
Sampling 200 synthesizers and creating more than 5500 accompanying patches is certainly a gargantuan task by anyone`s standards, so it’s no surprise that Best Service’s latest virtual instrument has been given the rather apt title of Titan. As well as offering an impressive amount of patch and sample data (36GB at the last count), Titan is also notable in the fact that it utilizes a sample engine developed in conjunction with Yellow Tools. Not surprisingly, therefore, Best Service’s “ENGINE” shares many similarities with Yellow Tools’ Independence Pro, as well as having a series of dedicated controls and features that relate specifically to the Titan library.
Setting up Titan requires installing Best Service’s ENGINE, followed by the Titan installer for all the various preset files. You then have to manually install Titan’s Image files into the corresponding Image folder in the ENGINE root folder. It’s worth noting that the ENGINE root folder can be installed on any available drive, enabling you to store the 36 GBs of sample data separate from your main system drive. Copy protection is via Yellow Tools’ E-License system, a challenge-and-response solution.
Given that this is the first ENGINE-based product from Best Service, we were eager to see how the instrument performed. If you’re familiar with independence Pro, ENGINE won’t come as a great surprise. New users, though, will be pleased to note how efficient and easy to use it is, with its clear performance layering system accessible to the left of the interface and a large QuickEdit page providing immediate control over elements such as filtering, envelopes and effects. Delving deeper into the architecture, it’s also possible to use the Pro Edit page to gain more detailed control over each layer.
The organization of Titan’s patches follows a functional and ordered approach. Patches are listed by instrument type (synths, basses, pads and so on), with futher sub-categories. Given the range of synths used to source many of these sounds, it might have been good to see some indication of their origins, although those who are acquainted with ‘classic’ synths will recognize many of the sounds.
Overall, the quality of the multi-sampling is excellent, with the patches playable over a large range and many of the original details seemingly intact. The additional programming (beyond the basic sounds captured in the samples) seems to be sensitively light – adding small amounts of ENGINE’s filters, for example, rather than smothering the samples with multiple layers and effects. The step sequencer and arpeggiator also add to many of the sounds, providing a suitably contemporary twist on the basic patches.
Hard not to be impressed by the range and number of instrument patches on offer. Although there are plenty of great-sounding basses and analogue pads, some of the piano and keyboard sounds have a distinctly 90s feel to them. Still, given the amount of raw material and the features available in ENGINE for modifying the basic samples, there’s still plenty of creative potential.
Clash of the Titans
Titan is an impressive first outing for Best Service’s ENGINE system and an exciting indicator of things to come. If you’re new to the world of recording and music production, then an instrument like Titan certainly represents a cost-effective way of acquiring a large number of key synth and keyboard sounds, especially given Omnisphere’s fondness for ‘unusual’ sounds and textures rather than conventional pianos, pads, organs and so on. Those of a more creative persuasion, though, may prefer the sonic possibilities of a good contemporary software synth, even if the palette of sounds might be slightly less extensive.
· An exhaustive collection of synth sounds
· Powerful playback engine
· Clear patch organization
Walk on by
· Source instruments aren’t identified

Titan represents an impressive collection of sounds for your money, as well as featuring one of the most finely tuned playback engines to date. Some of the sounds are slightly dated, but there’s still plenty to explore.
