Wie bei allen Sample-Libraries muss man bei aller Klangqualität entscheiden, ob man diese Art Klangfarben für seine Arbeit benötigt. Erste Zielgruppe dürften die Produzenten von Film-, Fernseh- und Werbemusik sein. Forest Kingdom 3 stellt die nötigen Tools zur Verfügung, einen Score in der Dschungel-/Wald-/Fantasy-Thematik auf die Beine zu stellen. Aber auch diejenigen, die sich um Klanginstallationen aller Art kümmern, könnten sich durch diese Tarilonte-Library inspirieren lassen.
Die Auswahl ist riesig, die Klangqualität ist enorm und der Preis ist mit 259 Euro absolut angemessen. Nutzer der Vorversionen können für 99 Euro upgraden.
"Forest Kingdom 3 might just be the finest offering yet in Tarilonte’s mushrooming canon of excellence."
Forest Kingdom 3 ist die erste Wahl, wenn ausdrucksstarke ethnische Instrumente sowie von der Natur inspirierte Klangwelten gefragt sind. Besonders die neuen Flöten lassen sich bemerkenswert ausdrucksvoll spielen. Aber auch die übrigen Instrumente wie die sehr dynamisch spielbaren Trommeln und Percussion-Instrumente überzeugen auf der ganzen Linie. Und die organischen Flächenklänge sind auch für Ambient, Downtempo, Chillout & Co. eine echte Bereicherung. Wer schnelle Inspiration sucht oder gar mit einer Deadline im Nacken komponiert, wird die 300 Multitrack-Performance-MIDI-Grooves schätzen.
Sample Library Review 06/22/2021
"Eduardo Tarilonte has once again proven he is the master of cinematic sampling with Forest Kingdom 3. The library is huge, beautiful and is everything you need to create lush cinematic scores, ambient backdrops and meditative soundscapes. Highlights such as the new Native American flutes with plenty of articulations and playing styles, lead to much more realistic and human performances. The all new phrase-based and midi pattern content only offers more inspiration and creativity and every single instrument sounds like it belongs in the forest. If you are used to using any other Eduardo Tarilonte libraries, you know what to expect. If not, Forest Kingdom 3 is the perfect place to start. A must-have library for the modern composer."

The Forest Kingdom library has been an inspiring addition to my palette. The performance legato featured on the solo ethereal voice is programmed remarkably well and I´ve used a variety of the library´s sounds on several of my most recent film scores including Snow White and The Huntsman
American composer of film, television, and video game music (World of Warcraft and Overwatch).
Eduardo Tarilonte’s libraries never cease to inspire and open doorways to sonic worlds we never knew we couldn’t live without. Imaginative and evocative, Forest Kingdom 3 takes it to the next level and will firmly rooted in my palette for a long time to come.
With 3 Grammy nominations, 20 Billboard hits, and millions of fans worldwide, David Arkenstone has established himself as one of the best contemporary instrumental musicians of our time. Arkenstone was also a member of the composing team who developed the music for Blizzard Activision´s World of Warcraft videogame´s Cataclysm expansion.
Eduardo has expanded on the already beautiful Forest Kingdom series with another inspirational sound tool. It’s quite fun for me to just hold one note down in the Soundscapes section and immediately get inspired and then add some of the other percussive and melodic sounds in the library. Instant song!'

In case you ever wondered what Elves and Ents are dreaming about, it definitely must contain Forest Kingdom. Beautiful and stunning soundscapes from nature and the forest meet brilliant recorded and programmed ethnic instruments. Eduardo and Bestservice definitely created a sample library masterpiece!
