Keyboard Magazine GOLIATH REVIEW
"Goliath as a collection of sounds can't be beat. These are some of the most expressive and musical sounds out there, and there's no other one-stop sample player or library that comes close."
Future Music "VIRTUAL INSTRUMENT OF THE YEAR"!
“Colossus was the clear choice for our Future Music Magazine Virtual Instrument of the Year A.C.E. Award,” said Editor-in-Chief James Rotondi. “Its massive, comprehensive library of instruments, coupled with its top-tier, pro-level sound quality, made it the stand-out all-around virtual instrument of the year.
— FUTURE MUSIC
Keyboard Magazine COLOSSUS REVIEW - KEY BUY AWARD
"Quantum Leap’s contention that Colossus covers all the basic musical genres is accurate, but in some ways, sells the collection short because there’s a ton of valuable, but definitely non-basic, sounds. And while they hit on the “Swiss army knife” concept, frankly, I’d respectfully disagree. A Swiss army knife is practical and useful, but I wouldn’t consider it inspiring. I found Colossus to be all three. Certainly, the luxury of a 32GB “ROM set” is something you don’t find in typical keyboard workstations, and they’re right about ease of use — although operation is simple, not simplistic. So does it have you “completely covered?” Well, nothing can ever cover everything you could ever want. But I’ve yet to find something that comes as close as Colossus. Playing the sounds is a joy, and one can’t help but respect the obvious amount of work that went into creating this library. Overall, Colossus is a superb collection that puts the essentials — and more — in a convenient, well-rounded package that definitely delivers on its promise."
Virtual Instruments Magazine
"There’s no such thing as the last sample library you need to buy, since there are libraries that cover every category in great detail, and there will always be different varieties of everything. But this library is complete enough to stand alone. Given its vast range of high-quality instruments, Colossus is equally ideal as the foundation of a professional sample library and as a fill-in-the-gaps collection. While its $1000 list price is a considerable investment for most musicians, in this case I consider it a bargain."
— VIRTUAL INSTRUMENTS
Electronic Musician Magazine
"Quantum Leap Colossus is a virtual instrument that holds a massive 32 GB sample library, in an attempt to provide practically any instrument that any arrangement might call for. Colossus even features an enormous General MIDI (GM) sound set. Overall, the quality of the sounds in this collection is very, very good."
— ELECTRONIC MUSICIAN
"I like the fact that there’s no crap in this package, it’s hi-end sampling all the way – whether you choose to use the instruments or not. Colossus is not only a highly versatile plug-in for composers, it’s a deep well of inspiration for sound designers and music makers. Colossus comes highly recommended."
— EQ Magazine
PC & Music Magazine
"The price of 799 Euro sounds a bit high in the beginning. However, once you realize how much you would have to spend for the individual components (instruments) and that you also get a lot of extras, it's a bargain. A colossal high-end production with all sounds for all occasions. Quality 5/5, Creativity factor 5/5, Production 5/5, Booklet 5/5, Overall 5/5"
