Eduardo Tarilonte DARK ERA

Sorry for the inconvenience
Would a crossgrade from Era II Vocal Codex be available or would it have to be one of the other Era libraries?

"Thank you Goldie for reminding us! There indeed was a discounted crossgrade offer to Celtic ERA from various other ERA libraries for one month... I just had a quick chat with all the relevant people and I can confirm that we decided to do this for Dark ERA as well. So, keep a close eye on our newsletter or website :2thumbs:"

@Robo Rivard,
Oh. Missed that. *facepalm*
It's OK, we still don't know what will be the deal this time. Fingers crossed. I just bought Cinematic Studio Brass with the crossgrade, and it really makes me appreciate the company. It's important to take care of your faithfull customers.

I wonder what other instruments does this library offer. He seems to be focusing mainly on percussion, throat singers and flutes.
There are also the soundscapes.
But what other instruments are there? What instruments were used in the pre-medieval era that we know of? Any stringed instruments? Keys? Brass/horns of some kind (that's not already on medieval era II)?

I think there's a high likelihood that a talharpa/jouhikko will be included.

Interesting. But it seems it's not from the "dark ages". Eduardo said this library is all about instruments from the era before the middle ages.
On wiki regarding the jouhikko, it says: "Perhaps the earliest definite depiction of this kind of instrument is the stone carving from Trondheim Cathedral, Norway, dating from the second quarter of the 14th century"

The video for the lib said that bowed harps are included. The talharpa/jouhikko is considered a bowed harp or lyre ... so even if those instruments exactly are not included, there will be something very similar ;)

Just to clarify: continuing news of this product's release and loyalty discounts will be done via Best Service, correct? I was not previously aware of Tarilonte maintaining a separate website and/or mailer.

I really don't mind ENGINE, and it's been stable for me for a few years now. I think the one thing I might have noticed is that some of the settings may not be retained upon re-launch of the plug-in in a saved project (Audio Units version), such as reverb level. But that may have been fixed.

I would rather have all of these related products running on the same, uh, engine. :) This makes it easier to quickly compare. And for whatever reason, I find the way that "playing techniques" are presented in these ERA series products (and the related libraries from Tarilonte), to be much more intuitive and easier to learn than a lot of my Kontakt scripted libraries.

Hi there,
Thanks for your kind words guys! Sorry for being MIA. I have been very busy with the latest fine tuning. Please, let me show you this demo done 100% with dark era sounds.
Regarding Tagelharpas....YES! You get a small one, a big one and a crwth! You will listen to the Crwth in this demo. Hope you like it :)

Within 2 minutes, I've gone from 0 bottles of mead to 12 bottles.:2thumbs:

Awesome demo! Really.
But i have to say that as someone who has also medieval era and celtic era, your choice of how to compose the melody makes it sound like something that is somewhere between celtic and medieval. Less obvious what's the "identity" of this library is, from the demo.

Thank you!
This demo wanted to show some kind of fantasy/pagan style. The library itself is pretty versatile, but you get that ancient sound.

Does the "identity" really matter? If the instruments are compelling and they fit your style of music, then that's the most important thing :) Whether it's called Dark Era or ERA III makes very little difference IMO.

In "identity" i mean what sets it apart from those other Tari libraries. The wind instruments sound great, but somehow not that different from what's on the former libraries. So in that sense they sound good - but at the same time similar to what is already in era II and celtic era.
What would be interesting to hear is the rest of the stuff which makes this library unique. Hope i'm making more sense now.
