Hey what’s good fam! Back with a new review, this time I’m checking out an Omnisphere 2 library from The Unfinished. He’s definitely got that cinematic, movie score, action trailer style in his libraries.
What is Colossus II?
This is a collection of patches and multis for Omnisphere 2 aimed at film composers, game sound designers, media producers, and anyone else who leans towards this side of sound creation.
There are patches and there are multis, covering everything from rhythmic percussion, organic textures, ambient sequences, hits, and more.
As a composer for film, tv, and games, Matt’s style shines through in every library, and I’ve been a fan for many years.
This is that library for those that want the sounds you hear in the theater, in your living room, or on your console…but never quite knew where they came from.
- content: 400 patches, 70 multis
- format: Omnisphere 2
- price: £59.99 (about $75 USD)

How does it sound?
As I mentioned, I’m a fan of The Unfinished, his music is awesome and his sound design is super inspiring.
What I dig about his sounds is that no matter what style they are, there is always an organic, almost emotional feel to them.
He gives you plenty of soundscapes and evolving textures, you get dramatic hits and organic percussion, movement via arps and sequences, plus many of the patches will change with the simple move of the modwheel.
Oh, and the multis are insane, like instant score insane…really fun to play.
Overall I love the sound, and there are so many tools in here that I have no doubt armed with this you can complete many projects and quickly!
So what’s the bottom line?
Man I love Colossus II, I know I started in reverse by not reviewing the first volume before this one…but oh well! I’m sure that one is amazing as well!
Overall I give this library 4.5 out of 5 subs, it’s super inspiring, fun to play, and a must have for anyone using Omnisphere 2 that is looking for more film, game, and TV style sounds.
I would have welcome a few more organic percussion sounds as those things were really nice, not too heavy, but just enough to add some unique texture.
Go on over and check the library out, heck, check them all out…this guy is really providing some great inspiration and creative tools.
