Cinetools is fast becoming one of my favorite modern cinematic sample library developers. From the recently reviewed Otherworld and Disturbia, I can say with confidence that they now have a good history of releasing cutting-edge cinematic libraries. Titanomachy is part of their latest offering, and it is a collection of 800-plus cutting-edge sounds full of tension-building whooshes, hits, powerful impacts, soaring horns, war drones and majestic battlefield atmospheres for use with movie trailers, cut scenes, games, TV and film music. Weighing in at 5.5 GB, there are several sound categories included in the digital download. Unsurprisingly, the 117 soundscapes and atmospheres are good for scoring fantasy and adventure films. Titanomachy has a very distinct sound and approach – it’s epic and cinematic, yet majestic and mythological at the same time. Its style reminds me of sounds used in movies such as 300, Warcraft and Troy. My favorite samples of the bunch are the Drum & Percussion Beds and the Raw Sources & Field Recordings as these include materials that are sure to fire up your creative senses. Overall, this is a good pack that can be used as a reference point for your next TV or film project. And with the files delivered in 24-bit/96kHz, this is worth getting as part of your arsenal of samples.
