    The Instruments of Celtic Era 2



    For Celtic ERA 2 multi-instrumentalist and sampling-expert Eduardo Tarilonte meticulously captured 36 Celtic wind, string, and percussion instruments in full detail and with immaculate quality. Among them you will find catchy flutes, dreamy harps, the famous Uilleann bagpipes, and striking bodhran drums.



    To achieve an even greater variety, some sounds were created by recording two different instruments of the same kind. This allows you for example to play a harp duet with different sounding instruments.

    In addition, authentic phrases were recorded as MIDI-patterns as well as inspiring soundscapes. Naturally, the instruments are offered in all of their typical articulations with an added true legato function.

    The Recording of Celtic Era 2

    The recordings for Celtic ERA 2 were made in Eldana Studios in Spanish Dueñas. All instruments were played by superb musicians from the Irish music scene:

    Martino Vacca (Uilleann Pipes, Irish Flute, Low Whistles and Whistle), Karen Hickey (Fiddle), Carlos Martín Aires (Acoustic Guitar, Irish Bouzouki, Tenor Banjo), Fernando Mosquera (Highland Pipes 2, Gaida, Galician Bagpipe, Scottish Smallpipes, Wooden Low Whistle and Asubio), Jean Yves Magre (Highland Pipes 1), Marie Agnes Magre (Breton Bombarde), Pablo Vergara (Bodhrans), and Álvaro García "Pichu" (Scottish Drum, Skin Snare, Bass Drum and Tom).

    Eduardo Tarilonte, the creator of this library, single-handedly played the Concertinas and Celtic Harps while the four historical instruments were performed by Abraham Cupeiro.

    All instruments were recorded using selected Kahayan U47 Mics & Preamps as well top-notch Ribbon Mics. Micing was carried out intentionally close and thus without room detail. This procedure offers full control over the subsequent sculpting of the sounds and effects. Therefore, the sounds of Celtic ERA 2 can be combined with Eduardo Tarilonte’s others libraries without any difficulty.

    Works with Engine Version 2.8.0.58 or higher.
