Best Service announces Titan – 200 Synthesizers in One
Best Service has announced Titan – 200 Synthesizers in One, a virtual instrument featuring 5,500 multisamples of the best sounds from 200 classic analog synthesizers and modular systems including the biggest & most famous digital synths & workstations of the 80s and 90s but also the newest virtual instruments and current synths.
That means 40 years of synth history and sound variety, the biggest sound and style collection ever. We put a great emphasis on preserving the unique sound character of each instrument. That’s why the instruments were partially sampled with their original effects and filters because they can hardly be reproduced in the virtual domain.
- ENGINE, based on the high-end sampler Independence Pro and offers all performance features of a contemporary sample engine:
- Superfast Sound Loading — average access and loading of a new sound with all its parameters and effects in less than a second.
- Direct stepping through the Soundpool.
- Analog Modelling for realistic reproduction of analog synth sounds.
- Solo-Mode, Legato-Mode, Glide and Samplestart Shifting.
- A vast array of parameters, giving unprecedented sound diversity.
