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

The instrument collection is complemented by delicate Ambient Soundscapes, to create deep and reassuring atmospheres using complex sound textures. These textures consist of several elements which can be adjusted in level and panning to your liking in the mixer page of the Engine. In total NADA offers 16 categories of Ambient Soundscapes featuring 200 pads in various subcategories.
NADA is fully compatible with other libraries by Eduardo Tarilonte since it has been recorded by Jorge Calderón Muriel in the Eldana Studio in Spain, using highest quality equipment such as the Kahayan 4K7 microphone and 12K72 preamp. The instruments have been close mic’ed in order to capture all details and to provide a direct sound experience which can be flexibly edited and shaped in all directions by external tools.
Works with Engine Version 2.6.1 or higher
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.
Best Service NADA Test – Fazit
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.

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.
- 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 is expansive, unique, and authentic. It delivers a gorgeous experience and covers every tool you would need to compose a soul-stirring, thought-provoking piece of music.
If you'd like to embark on a journey of enlightenment and add some tranquility to your productions, Nada is a treasure trove of grandeur.

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.
