Hey what’s good fam?
Back with a new review from Best Service, today I’m checking out TITAN 2
This is the next version of their super synth instrument plugin.
It runs on their Engine 2 workstation and comes over 12,000 presets.
Let’s dig in!
So what is TITAN 2?
This is a product that emulates over 200 different synths, it’s like the all in one synthesizer pretty much.
It covers analog and digital hardware synths, and now even covers popular software synthesizers.
The goal is to provide you all of the various popular types of synth sounds you could one, in one interface.
Speaking of the interface, it’s been updated since version 1, now you can layer sounds from 2 different sources and all of your parameters are right on the front page for quick tweaking.
You even have multiple ways of adding movement thanks to the step sequencer, arp, arranger, you can even import and use midi files to trigger your sounds.
- content: 25GB, 12,800 presets
- format: Engine 2 (VST and AU format)
- price: $199

How does it sound?
What I love most is the variety covered, you get ambient leads and pads, deep bass, digital bells, even orchestral string instruments.
Any type of synth and synthesis you can think of is covered. You can browse by sound type, or, if you know exactly what you want you can browse by emulated sound source.
From Osphere, to ASE, to ImpASCor 2, or any of the other 266 sound sources, there’s so many instruments covered here this definitely aims to be a one stop synth shop.
You get it all, from smooth and ambient, to cinematic, to straight up dubstep and rugged synths.
I really don’t see how someone could exhaust all of the sounds in this product at all, not to mention the way you can layer them with the two different synth engines you get at once.
So what’s the bottom line?
If you’re one of those people who get inspired by new sounds and need a constant influx of new content, you will not be disappointed with this one at all.
I give TITAN 2 A 4 out of 5 subs, there’s just so much content in here, with so much variety, there’s definitely something for everybody.
Now if you’re someone that really likes to get down and dirty tweaking your synths, I find this interface a little too small, it really seems to be setup for quick tweaking and adjusting as opposed to deep synthesis work. Of course it could be preference…my eyes aren’t what they used to be, but I did find it a tad small.
Also, the browser system could use some work (though that’s more about Engine 2 than this product), it really sticks out with the amount of content in this library.
Browsing through the pop out menus for thousands upon thousands of sounds can get tedious.
Despite those two issues, I find this to be a great value for the price, not to mention the included impulse reverb which sounds great.
All in all, if you need a huge collection of synth sounds and don’t want to go out and purchase every single synth available, do yourself a favor and check this out.
You may just find it covers your synth needs quite well.
