Best Service 75158 overview

  • 1Description

ERA II Vocal Codex from Best Service is a virtual instrument that offers an extensive library of authentic-sounding, medieval solo singing voices recorded with exceptional sound quality. For composers, producers, and sound designers, the software brings the moods and sound aesthetics of the medieval bygone times to the production environment of the digital audio workstation, and is well suited for films, documentaries, video games, and music projects.

Created by Eduardo Tarilonte, the library includes 14,000 individual samples of one female singer and two male singers performing in four distinctive vocal styles. The voices are close-miked and recorded dry to capture all the nuances, and allow users to add their reverb of choice. The library also contains 30 sonic landscapes with atmospheric sounds.

The easy-to-use interface of the Engine 2.5 player facilitates working with the library and provides a fast and simple workflow designed to inspire and enhance musicians' creativity. The Engine 2.5 lets you play multi-samples with dynamic layers, various articulations, and five, true-legato vowels.


Detailed samples of one female voice and two male voices – 14,000 samples / 8.5GB
Five true legato vowels: A, E, I, O, U
