Best Service 76246 overview

  • 1Description

Powered by the included ENGINE 2 sample player, Best Service Celtic Era is a virtual instrument with a comprehensive library of ancient sounds and instruments from the Celtic culture going back to the Bronze Age. Featuring catchy flutes, dreamy harps, the famous Uilleann pipes, the indispensable Bodhran drums, as well as authentic phrases and inspiring soundscapes, it provides composers and producers with a flexible tool well suited for traditional and historical compositions, film scoring, fantasy games, and more.

Celtic Era offers an 18GB library with 18,000 samples delivered at 24-bit / 44.1 kHz resolution. It comprises twenty-three, multisampled Celtic instruments including winds, plucked and bowed strings, keys, and percussion. In addition, there are three instruments from the Bronze Age, the carnyx, cornu, and war horn, which allow you to tap into the rarely explored world of Celtic sounds from antiquity.

To bring a realistic dimension to your performance, the software provides a powerful assortment of articulations, round robins, dynamic gradations, as well as real legato function and dedicated glissando samples. You can create your own melodies using the solo instruments or quickly set up rhythms with percussion MIDI loops and realistic MIDI patterns of strumming guitars and bouzoukis.

Celtic Era is performed by influential musicians in the Irish music scene and recorded by Eduardo Tarilonte at Eldana studios using high-quality Kahayan U47 microphones and close-miking technique without room sound.

Note: This crossgrade is available to all registered users of at least one Era Library by Eduardo Tarilonte.
