Eduardo Tarilonte Vocal Codex – Voices of the past
Vocal Codex is the perfect addition to Era II Medieval Legends of 2015. It completes this extraordinary medieval-library by adding authentically sounding solo voices. Eduardo Tarilonte, creator of several award-winning libraries such as Forest Kingdom, Desert Winds, Epic World and Shevannai, recorded a blistering extensive library of historic singing voices with incredibly convincing sound quality, creating the perfect addition to Era II.
Vocal Codex takes the moods and sound aesthetics of the medieval and bygone times to the production environment of the digital audio workstation. The carefully designed user interface of the Engine player simplifies working with the library, allowing the voices of Vocal Codex to inspire and fully unfold the musicians' creativity.
Vocal Codex contains over 14,000 samples with a total amount of 8.5 gigabytes of data. The detailed recordings comprise two male and two female solo voices. By offering five true legato vowels (A, E, I, O, U) per voice, velocity-sensitive triggering of syllables and extensive controller navigation, creating utterly lifelike vocal phrases becomes possible. In addition, 30 inspiring soundscapes have been added to round up Vocal Codex with corresponding atmospheric sounds.
The library scores with extensive multi-samples, several dynamic layers, various articulations and true legato samples.
Among other features, Vocal Codex includes the exclusive contents of „ERA II Limited Edition“, that were only available for a limited time. All owners of this limited edition will find Vocal Codex in their user accounts for free immediate download.
Vocal Codex consists of four parts
Celtia is the charming, soft and almost heavenly voice of Celica Soldream with her enchanting, celtic feel.
Heroica presets a different powerful and earthy side of Celica Soldream – a voice that is perfectly suited for epic and emotional music.
Bard is the equally fascinating and delicate voice of Iván López of Evo, an ideal offer for gentle and ancient music.
Medieval Tenor, the voice of Víctor Sordo, sounds exquisite and elegant likewise and is therefore predestined for solo- and sacred-ritual passages.
For the production of Vocal Codex, greatest care was taken to every detail. The recordings in Eldana Studio, located in Dueñas, Spain, were performed using an U47 Kahayan microphone, an API preamplifier and the analog Kahayan summing unit Epsilon.
All voices were recorded intentionally close to avoid room-ambience and leave full control over sound and effects to the producer. However, Vocal Codex also offers an adjustable reverberation effect.
Best Service Engine 2.5 required.

I enjoyed working with ERA II Vocal Codex from the first time I installed it. Like I said earlier, I have worked with all of Eduardo’s libraries and Vocal Codex is hands down another masterpiece from the master himself. I think there is a great deal of flexibility in the vocal capability and it is hyper-realistic. With a little bit of time and persistence, you can achieve a highly convincing vocal performance. The asking price of $159.00 is another pro for me. Well worth the investment.
Era II Vocal Codex ergänzt die Era II Software um mehrere, gut ausggewählte Stimmen, sowie 29 Landscapes genannten Pads. Die Software ist einfach zu bedienen und eignet sich vor allem für Film, sowie für altertümliche Musik.

"In Eduardo Tarilonte’s sample libraries, especially “Era II Medieval Legends”, I have found exceptional sound quality creative tools and a huge variety of early instruments. In my work, I place big demands on quality and workflow, particularly orchestration and high quality atmospheres. It has been a huge pleasure for me to work with these powerful tools and adapt them to my musical universe."
