The Titanium No. 2 - an absolute recommendation!

Ignoramus, 18.10.2015

Der Titan 2 ist nicht nur ein einfacher Sample-Player - denn die Synthengine ist mit seinen Einstellungsmöglichkeiten ist ein vollwertiger Synthesizer samt Effekte und Arpeggiator und mutiert somit zur vollständigen Workstation auf Sample-Basis. Das gute daran ist, dass es neben einer einfachen Oberfläche (Quick-Edit) mit den grundlegenden Einstellungen auch eine detaillierte Oberfläche (ProEdit-Page) gibt. Die Synth-Engine Best-Service-Engine wurde von der Firma Magix programmiert und geht mehr als in Ordnung, denn die Mädels und Jungs von der Firma Magix bewiesen ja unlängst durch Samplitude und Sequoia, dass sie auch in der Profiliga mitspielen. Ganz wichtig: Die Engine läuft auf Windows PCs und MAC-OSX (32/64bit) - sehr schön!
Die Engine mit dem Titan 2 darf man auf 3 Rechnern aktivieren - hervorragend!

Wo die Sonne hell scheint, fällt ab und zu etwas Schatten:
- Die Oberfläche lässt sich (leider) nicht zoomen oder skalieren. So wirken die Bedienelemente ab und zu als "sehr" klein und man muss teilweile sehr genau mit seinem Mauszeiger zielen.
- Die Kategorisierung der Sounds finde ich etwas unübersichtlich und hätte mir mehr eine Sortierung nach Synthesizern gewünscht. So weiß man oft nicht von welchem Synthesizer der aktuelle Sound stammt.
- Die Engine könnte etwas performanter sein, denn ab und zu ergeben sich beim Umschalten der Sounds und direkten Anspielen einige Aussetzer, welche sich nach wenigen Sekunden wieder verschwinden. Ich vermute es hat was mit dem "Laden" der Sounds zu tun. Man sollte also auf jeden Fall mit den Einstellungen bezüglich der Festplatten-Performance und dem Cache in der Engine (unter dem Menüpunkt Preferences zu finden) herumspielen, um so ein Optimum zu erreichen.

Mein Fazit: Der TITAN No. 2 ist eine absolut gelungene Sammlung an aktuellen (z.B. Dub-Step) und klassischen Synthesizer-Sounds (Moog Leads und Bässe) und ist meines Wissens nach eine der vollständigsten Synth-Sample-Libary zum Thema "Synthesizer" und somit vom Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis eine absolute Empfehlung.

Although some chorus or vocoder sounds and other typical elements can be found, friends of natural sounds and conventional non-electronic instruments are less likely to come here - is not the target group of the Titan.

Between simple sounds for direct playing, this synth offers a lot of sequened sounds, effects, loops and drum sounds. A mixture of (almost) all genres. The detailed programming of the sounds has been successfully done, but you should definitely use the velocity of your keyboard, because with a stronger stop the filter opens and the sounds gain at highs - very nice I have to say that you very often a smile in the Face when playing a variety of sounds - the quality is definitely right!

A factory of synthesizers ...

30.05.2015
For Thomann: Commanded and delivered in record time (and very carefully), Thomann faithful to its reputation.

For the app: I use it recently so printing to semi warm:
I use it on an I5 4460, 16 GB of RAM, sound card sound blaster Zx. Win 7 64 bit. DAW: Samplitude
Recognized without problem.
Quick installation thanks to the supplied USB key: 25 GB = 1 hour in usb 3
Phenomenal amounts of sound, effects and presets (arpeggios, sequences, arranger) to no longer know what to make of it.
All the sounds of the 70s (so a little kitch) in the early 2000s.
Possibility to overpay 2 synths for unique sounds.
If you search for Pads / Leads and other sounds Jean Michel Jarre and Vangelis you will be served.
Organization of sounds: Practical but the sounds do not have proper names: classified by synthesizers or by styles: you will have to record your presets or any note. It is impractical but in view of the 10000 (!!!!!!!) sounds presented it's excusable: (example: Pads 1 Nexus2, Pads 1 Alchemist etc ..)
Consumption level it looks ok, I did not have too much time to spit the beast but I still have a good config so hard to say.
Load time between presets true to description (1 second)

Unbeatable value for money, excellent product with enormous possibilities. The big plus: Bookstore Titan 1 included. I do it again this choice without hesitation for a second. You can go there with your eyes closed.

The +:
A gargantuan quantity of pure and hard synth sounds.
Loading time
Available Effects
Value for money: Best Service is well named
Titan 1 included, 2 softs for the price of one.
All what..

The - :
Sometimes a bit too kitch
Sounds do not have specific names.
Several lives necessary to exploit all that the soft can offer ...
