"An extremely comprehensive collection of instruments and effects. You’re likely to be able to find every sound or processor you need for most kinds of music."
AskAudio's resident tech guru, Hollin Jones, has been taking a close look at Total Studio 2 MAX and was impressed with the breadth of the collection, the flexibility and the quality of the sounds. Here are some of his key comments:
"IK Multimedia is one of the most prolific music technology companies around, its range of software and hardware products arguably rivalling that of Native Instruments in terms of sheer diversity."
"Total Studio 2 MAX consists of 94 products which is practically every piece of software that IK makes for Mac and PC."
"It’s fair to suggest that if you opt for the full package, you aren’t likely to need to get too many other third party plug-ins."
"What you get is an extremely comprehensive collection of instruments and effects that replicate the kinds of sounds you need for bands, orchestras and studios."
"You’re likely to be able to find every sound or processor you need for most kinds of music."
Hollin's final verdict was:
"Extremely comprehensive bundle of instruments and effects. Covers all bases for many kinds of music production. Mind boggling number of sounds included. Full versions of flagship products and all libraries. Significant saving compared to buying separately."
