Upgrade from ERA Medieval Legends to ERA II

ERA II Medieval Legends - a wonderful collection from a forgotten fantasy world of knights, princesses and dragons...

ERA II  takes you to a distant journey, deeper into the medieval than ever. Eduardo Tarilonte, creator of award-winning libraries such as Forest Kingdom, Desert Winds, Epic World and Shevannai, presents the considerably expanded version of the first edition of ERA Medieval Legends.

ERA II offers an even more comprehensive selection of historic instruments. This library holds the perfect instruments for film- and television soundtracks with historical background, fantasy-games as well as folk-music, medieval-rock and related compositions.

For ERA II, Eduardo Tarilonte has created 25 new instruments, resulting in a total number of over 70 instruments, all being recorded in highest detail and quality. In addition, there are a large number of soundscapes available - all ready to be used within the advanced Engine-Player and its generously expanded and specifically optimized user interface

ERA II horn

ERA II Medieval Legends contains:

10 flutes
8 reed instruments
4 war horns
3 brass instruments
9 bowed strings instruments
13 plucked strings instruments
3 keyboards
20 percussion instruments
1 singing voice

Recordings for ERA II took place in different selected spanish studios, such as Madrid's Infinity Studios as well as Eldana Studios in Dueñas, just to name some. Also, numerous talented musicians contributed their skills to the project, among them  Rinaldo Valldeperas (crumhorns, shawms, renaissance soprano recorder), Efren López (Gittern, Bass Citole, Medieval Psaltery, Medieval Lute), Cecilia Nocilli, Lorena Porres and many others.

ERA II Screen 2

All instruments and voices have been recorded using a Neumann U87 microphone being accompanied by selected highest quality preamps from manufacturers such as Avalon and Neve. The instruments have intentionally been captured with close mic techniques avoiding unwanted room information to enable the user full control over the following sound shaping process and added effects. 

ERA II harp

ERA II pursues the goal of capturing the musical atmosphere and sound aesthetics of the medieval, porting these old times into the computer-based production environment. The carefully programmed user interface of the Engine-Player supports easy use of the library, allowing the sounds of ERA II to create inspiration and unfold the musician's full creativity. ERA II is very much like an exciting fantasy-novel, taking musicians and composers to a journey into dark and long forgotten times. 

ERA II Screen

ERA II is well suited for different styles and genres ranging from medieval scores with authentic sounding instruments to fantasy-music, soundtracks and new-age-spheres. 

The sounds of ERA II are absolutely unique and cannot be found in any other library. Added is an overwhelming choice of instruments, sounds and soundscapes that provide musicians with a complete sonic compendium for the task that virtually needs no additional sounds.

The instruments in ERA II use extensive multisampling, dynamic layering, diverse articulations, round-robin and true-legato-samples. The library contains 25 gigabytes of sample data including all instruments and sounds of part one.

Eduardo meticulously recorded a lot of organic source material and created compelling, useful instruments to manipulate, customize and create with. From very human, musical performances to wild effects and everything in-between, I’m having fun creating new sonic landscapes with ERA 2 for far away imaginary lands..."  -Bill Brown

a few years in my work on "The Tudors" and "Pillars of the Earth", and I can
say that ERA is the best sounding, most cinematic library of its kind I have heard.
An instant addition to my palette, Bravo."

I needed to find Middle-ages Instruments to animate the World of princesses and dragons in our next project, Rayman Legend !
I found all I needed in ERA.
I was really thankful to Eduardo to have succeded in making such wonderful program allowing the best playability possible.
Thank you Eduardo for your wonderful work."

TAS awesome

Conclusion: ERA II Medieval Legends is full with content that will keep you busy for a long time. There are some sounds that I particularly could do without but I have to say that the sound quality of the whole library is simply staggering. The price is a bit steep but the content, quality and ease of use surely make up for it. ERA II Medieval Legends is simply an Awesome library.

exerpt: What has Tropical House got to do with ERA II?This is a sample library containing sampled medieval instruments aimed mainly at media composers. But as many of you are not media producers, we will try and find out how ERA II could also be useful for producers of pop, dance EDM and rock, seeing as all cinema, advertising, game and other media producers will probably buy this library anyway. The reason is pretty simple: in the world of sample libraries Eduardo Tarilonte has a reputation. He’s the one who killed the spirit of sample pack competitions. In the sound library field, Eduardo is something of a legend, like Tomba was for ski sports, or Schumacher was for Formula 1… Why bother competing when you know who will win? While all other competitors put goggles on at the start of a race, he never takes them off. He wears the goggles all the time – obviously he is some sort of natural born winner.Aleksander ArsovSounBytes Magazine

Exerpt: For me, the strength of Tarilonte's libraries is that all their round-robin and phrasing complexity is taken care of under the surface, so playing Era: Medieval Legends expressively becomes a real pleasure. Highly recommended!Martin Walker, SoundOnSound,September 2013SOS review EraMedievalLegends

Keeping it real
While a collection of authentic medieval instruments won't be to everyones's tastes or requirements, there's little doubt that Era perfectly fills a gap in respect to sensitively sampled authetic music instruments. Those of a more creative persuasion will undoubtedly see the musical potential behind the sounds included especially given the detail and expression behind their sampling and mapping, and for instance inspiration, the Sound Design collection is a great additional resource to an otherwise pletiful collection of instruments. MTM 08/2012 ERA (1)

Conclusion: I don’t believe there’s a product on the market that can match this libraries sound and level of detail on such a wide array of historical instruments. Eduardo Tarilonte has really hit it out of the park with the entire package. Although I have my gripes about the interface, it can be easily overlooked when there is such a wealth of opportunity within the library.I believe this library is going to immediately appeal to video game composers as fantasy and historical music tends to be more prevalent in the medium, although many film and TV composers would have use for this library if their projects are fantasy/historical orientated.Era Medieval Legends provides a great collection of realistic, authentic and most importantly, usable instruments. If you’re a composer looking to add some new color into your historical or fantasy music, this library is a must buy. Chris MooneyComposerFocus review EraML Video-walk-through ERA (1)

What’s the bottom line? Anytime Best Service releases a new product from Eduardo Tarilonte…I get excited.I know the instruments are going to be super realistic and organic, and I know there are going to be another collection of amazing soundscapes, ambiances, and fx.I give Era 4.5 out of 5 subs, regardless if this is your style of musical instrument or not, the quality and playability of the content just can’t be denied.His libraries always allow me to experiment with instruments I may otherwise never encounter. Many I have no clue how to pronounce or their history….but that doesn’t stop me from playing them!I also really dig how he gives you a quick info block on the instruments directly in the interface, really helps in exploring the content.SoundAndGear review EraML
