EON by Cinetools Review

Looking for a massive collection of action, fantasy, horror, and war sound? Or do you look for fitting atmospheres and underscores across those genres. EON by Cinetools has elements from field recordings, designed elements, and soundscapes.

EON is different from what you would expect from a company that is in the business of creating exceptional sounding effects libraries like Witchcraft. EON is 21GB of sound files touching dark and unnatural ambiances, anxious dreamscapes, emerging and epic warfare drones, natural soundscapes, robotic drones, paranormal atmospheres, science-fictional environments, organized textures and a wide variety of stingers. Cinetools did send a review copy with no strings attached.

After purchase, you receive the needed information to download the product. Unpack it and you are ready to browse through all the included content, best done with a third tool made for such a task.

Sound

You get in this library two different products in my view bundled into EON. In the first half of the library, you get ready to use sounds and tracks sorted by  Action & Sci-Fi, Fantasy & Adventure, Horror & Thriller and War & Mystery on the top level and then by the needed emotion for the genre you need. Of course, those are only suggested catalog, you want to go outside the box and use a Dark patch in the War folder for you next horror score.

At a top level, you find in the second part of this library Designer Tools. Here you have all needed single elements conveniently meta-tagged (great when you use a tool that supports this like SoundMiner or AudioFinder) and sorted on your hard disk.

It is hard to describe the complete content of EON, as there is so much useful content is included.

Do you look for rain sounds, jet sounds, drones, subs, vocals and instruments phrases?  EON includes over 500 (equals 10GB) sounds sorted by Ambience & Field Recordings, Drone & Tonal Layers, Stingers, Textures & Subs, and additional Vocal and Instrument phrases. In my view, the included sounds could have been also split up across many products and I would have said what a great collection.

Overall you get in 23GB more than 1000 Files (24 Bit / 96kHz). Cinetools counted all as you can see below:

You receive WAV files that you need to use in an application. You could use your OS tools or third party tool to browse all files included. I use usually SoundMiner, AudioFinder and some other tools for WAV files on my hard disks.
