Ancient ERA Persia – The Sound of Fairy Tales in Ancient Orient
A collection of sounds from forgotten places of the middle east.
Create your own melodies with 28 (!) fully playable instruments, deeply sampled, with true legato and glissandi, different dynamics and lots of articulations
Once again, Eduardo Tarilonte seduces you into almost forgotten sonic worlds. This time, he strikes out to capture sounds of the birthplace of magic and mystery and their ancient civilizations. Experience the arcane sounds from Arabian Nights, the soundtrack of desert sand trickling away in time and music that makes the Prince of Persia dance.
Following his works of Forest Kingdom, Desert Winds, Epic World and ERA Medieval Legends, Eduardo Tarilonte has dedicated this library to the sound of the ancient orient: Ancient ERA Persia.
Two years of development formed Ancient ERA Persia into an extensive library with both popular and less known instruments from the Middle East, that will spark your fantasy with its touching sounds.
Therefore, this library is the go-to choice for movie soundtracks and television documentaries about this region. At the same time, the library is suited for traditional music productions and also provides a perfect background for videogames taking place in the Middle East.
For Ancient ERA Persia, Eduardo Tarilonte recorded 28 percussion-, wind- and stringed-instruments in highest quality and finest detail. In addition, you will find authentically performed phrases as well as inspiring sound atmospheres. The instruments offer all articulations being used in the phrases. Several microtunings allow the use of every desired tuning for the instruments.
Just for the percussions, there are 1.000 loops in different tempos and rhythms aside from the playable instruments.
Ancient ERA Persia carries the sound and musical atmosphere of the Middle East from times past into the modern DAW-supported production environment. The carefully programmed user-interface of the Engine player enables a fast and easy workflow, that will set musicians in a state of pure creativity.
Ancient ERA Persia is suited for different applications and genres. The spectrum covers scoring antique compositions with authentic timbres, fantasy-games, movie soundtracks and new age songs.
The sounds of Ancient ERA Persia are truly unique and cannot be found in any other library. The excellent choice of instruments, articulations and sound atmospheres provides musicians and producers with an extensive compendium - it leaves no sound to be desired.
In detail, Ancient ERA Persia contains:
Percussion: Bendhir, Daf, Darbuka, Davul, Dayre, Riq, Riq plastic and Tombak
Wind: Turkish Mey High, Turkish Mey Low (combined in a single instrument), Turkish Clarinet, Kaval, Turkish Ney, Persian Ney, Zourna, & Duduk
Strings bowed: Turkish Violin, Lyra 1, Lyra 2
Strings plucked: Kopuz, Dutar, Santur, Oud, Baglama Big, Baglama Small, Tambur, Rabab & Tar
The instruments of this 17 gigabytes spanning library consist of extensive multisamples (24 bit, 44.1kHz) with several dynamic layers, multiple articulations, round-robins as well as real legato- and glissando-samples.
Ancient ERA Persia was recorded at Eldana Studios in Dueñas, Spain by Jorge Calderón and Eduardo Tarilonte. All instruments were played by virtuosos including Efrén López, Michalis Kouloumis, Stellios Petrakis, Jerome Salomon and Iván Karlón.
For the recording of the instruments, Tarilonte used selected Kahayan U47- and Neumann U87-microphones with API-preamplifiers and Kahayan Epsilon summing amplifiers. In this library, the instruments were intentionally captured close without significant room ambience, giving the user full control of the subsequent sound-design and effect selection. Thus making it easy to combine the sounds of Ancient ERA Persia with other Eduardo Tarilonte libraries.
