NADA - Meditation Sounds

Nada is the primal sound or the first vibration out of which the whole creation has sprung.

“After a whole life, having gone through many musical styles, one has always been in my heart. Because, deep inside me, it is a significant part of my soul and my essence from which I cannot let go: New Age Music - to which I owe it all; what I am and what I feel. I went from Ethnic, Folk, Antique to Soundtrack music, and every single note I composed or sampled was imbued with it in some way. Sometimes I thought it had left, never to return, but it was always there, dormant and feeding from those new styles and, at the same time, providing them with all its spirit. Now it has returned, more beautiful than ever. NADA is a spiritual voyage through the deepest sounds of my soul” - Eduardo Tarilonte

"Nada s'avère parfaite pour composer simplement des musiques méditatives et envoûtantes. Du côté des souhaits, on aurait aimé que certains instruments proposent plus de variations ou soient plus finement échantillonnés afin de créer des micro-nuances en jouant sur le timbre et l'interprétation ... Mais rien n'empêche d'utiliser Nada pour poser une base musicale sur laquelle on jouera un "véritable" instrument avec toute sa complexité et sa subtilité. Quelle que soit l'approche retenue, une chose est certaine: Nada ouvre de nouvelles perspectives aux musiciens en quête du son originel et de la vibration première."

NADA is not a cheap package, and one which is, by design, targeted at a specific genre and end user. However, its finesse is truly impressive and we think the sound set will also appeal to anyone who regularly uses evolving textures and atmospheric ethnic sounds.

What’s more, the instruments in NADA Meditation Sounds are just so ‘playable’; they invite you to get stuck in and start creating, and we think that’s the best praise that can be bestowed upon any software instrument.

MusicRadar verdict: We really like this package. It hits the mark sonically, offers plenty of variety and is great fun to use.

Nada ist eine fabelhafte Bereicherung für Produzenten, die sich auf meditative Musik spezialisiert haben und sich eine Basisausstattung an musikalisch gut einsetzbaren Klängen wünschen. Für einen fairen Preis bekommt man eine umfangreiche Sammlung, die so einige Perlen enthält. Angesichts dieser exzellenten Sounds fällt es eigentlich ziemlich leicht, diesem Produkt eine volle Punktzahl zu vergeben. Allerdings sollte man sich darüber im Klaren sein, dass einige Instrumente und Gesänge bereits in früheren Produkten von Eduardo Tarilonte erschienen sind. Am meisten profitieren also Interessenten, die noch keine Library von Tarilonte haben und sich rhythmisch nicht durch Groove-Vorlagen inspirieren lassen möchten.

New Age wird mit Nada zum Genuss. Unser Glückwunsch zu einem Produkt mit magischen Klängen.

While NADA might not be a toolkit that every composer feels compelled to have within their virtual instrument arsenal, as a sonic palette for the creation of New Age or mediation music, it is both a joy to explore and can be completely self-contained. This has undoubtedly been a labour of love for Eduardo Tarilonte, and the passion shines throughout. It might be niche, but it is absolutely top-quality niche.

NADA besticht durch eine geschickt zusammengestellte Auswahl an Sounds und Instrumenten, die man im Genre New Age, Meditation im weitesten Sinne benötigt. Damit ist die Zielgruppe auch schon gut umrissen, wozu wie immer auch die Film- und Videokomponisten gehören.

Die Sammlung an Klangfarben und Instrumenten ist umfangreich und stilsicher zusammengetragen worden. Ein Lob auch an den Kurator. Die Bandbreite ist hoch, der Bogen spant sich vom Overtone-Gesang über Klangschalen, Tablas bis hin zum Piano. Das machte diese Auswahl so attraktiv. Kritiker könnten argumentieren, dass man manche Sounds auch in anderen Libraries finden kann. Mag sein, aber hier hat man aber alles zusammen in einem Paket, muss nicht lange suchen und kommt zu einem schnelleren Ergebnis.

Und – ganz entscheidend – alle Presets sind klanglich und ästhetisch aus einem Guss produziert und passen daher optimal zusammen. Da muss man eigentlich gar nicht mehr viel schrauben. Eine tolle Library für eine bestimmte Zielegruppe, ein tolles Klangerlebnis. Und das alles zu einem Preis von 199 Euro. Da gibt es nichts zu meckern.

This is a specialized, niche library and as such it really hits the target. I don’t know many other similar libraries, but this one brings exactly those sort of sounds and instruments that are ideal for the task. All included instruments are up to the usual Eduardo standard, so you don’t need to do any further tweaking. They are all plug and play.

A very playable library that will not leave you short when you start working on your new age, meditation music. Actually, it’s quite rare that you can work on any song in any genre using just one sample based instrument. Nada, however, offers exactly that – from background sounds to the front line. Everything is there. Nice job Eduardo – again!

The Nada library contains more than 440 brilliantly named patches, organised hierarchically in sensible groups and sub-groups. They’re built from a collection of more than 9,000 samples of acoustic and synthesised instruments, and were recorded at the same studio and with the same high-end mics and preamps as Tarilonte’s other libraries – as a result, Nada blends wonderfully well with them.

Some sample libraries are generic in nature, boasting sounds fit for a variety of styles and contexts. Others are single-minded in their focus on a particular purpose. Nada is the latter. If you’re in the business of producing banging beats and room-shaking bass, Nada isn’t necessarily for you (though some of its sounds would service a breakdown brilliantly). If you like to explore less frenetic and more thoughtful music, however, you’d be hard-pushed to find something better than Nada.

Key features:

  • Rich, evolving new-age pads, instruments and voices
  • More than 440 sounds
  • High-quality instrument recordings
  • Built from more than 9,000 samples
  • Quick Edit mode exposes sounds’ most important parameters
  • Pro Edit mode provides greater depth
  • Integrates with other Eduardo Tarilonte libraries

Wer musikalisch auf der Meditationsschiene oder in Richtung New Age unterwegs ist, findet in Eduardo Tarilontes Best Service NADA einen versierten Begleiter, der alle dafür benötigten Sounds in größtenteils hervorragender Qualität im Gepäck hat – ein echtes Rundum-Sorglos-Paket also. Dass dabei der eine oder andere Sound auch in einer der vielen anderen Tarilonte-Librarys vorkommen mag, ist nicht unwahrscheinlich; da ich selber nur einige wenige habe, kann ich das jetzt nicht einzeln überprüfen. Auch gibt es innerhalb dieser Library hier und da Überschneidungen und Ähnlichkeiten, was bei der Masse an Klängen aber wohl unvermeidbar ist. Trotzdem macht man mit dieser geballten, sehr stilsicheren  Sammlung aber nichts verkehrt. Die mit einem skalierbaren GUI noch ein wenig besser, weil nutzerfreundlicher geworden wäre, aber die Optiker wollen ja auch leben. So steht am Ende eine klare Kaufempfehlung; mit einer Library von Tarilonte kann man grundsätzlich ohnehin nichts verkehrt machen.

Plus

  • umfassendes Klangangebot aller relevanten Sounds
  • sehr homogene Library
  • bequeme Zugriffsmöglichkeiten auf den Klang über das NADA GUI
  • sehr einheitlich produziert
  • teilweise auch sehr exotische, aber immer brauchbare Klänge
  • professionelle, gute Vokalstimmen

NADA has to offer so many useful contents that it is quite simply blown my mind away. Eduardo Tarilonte is a master at his own high class who is able to produce a comprehensive and intensely profound relationship to the appreciation of music and sound and inject it into a virtual instrument. This library is a tribute to the music Eduardo has always loved.

Best Services NADA is an excellent sounding and stylish collection of instruments that covers a comprehensive sound collection that is required for producing relaxation music. NADA is highly recommended to producers and musicians who are looking for sounds to write a track that drifts into the stream of flow.

Best Services NADA ist eine hervorragend klingende und stilsichere Instrumentensammlung zur Produktion von ambientlastigen Genres wie New Age und Entspannungsmusik. Besitzer bisheriger Libraries von Eduardo Tarilonte sollten ggf. überprüfen, inwieweit NADA das vorhandene Repertoire eventuell bereits abdeckt. Allen anderen Produzenten und Musikern, die auf der Suche nach Sounds der genannten Musikrichtungen sind, kann NADA aber uneingeschränkt empfohlen werden
