Era Medieval Legends, a wonderful collection from a forgotten fantasy world of knights, princesses and dragons...
2 time EMMY winning composer, The Borgias, Immortals, The Scorpion King 3
"I have lived in the language of Ancient and Medieval instruments for more than
a few years in my work on "The Tudors" and "Pillars of the Earth", and I can
say that ERA is the best sounding, most cinematic library of its kind I have heard.
An instant addition to my palette, Bravo."
Video Game composer of Rayman Origins, The Adventures of Tintin: The Shadow of the Unicorn among others.
"As a composer I worked last year on Rayman Origin's, a UbiSoft Video Game.
I needed to find Middle-ages Instruments to animate the World of princesses and dragons in our next project, Rayman Legend !
I found all I needed in ERA.
I was really thankful to Eduardo to have succeded in making such wonderful program allowing the best playability possible.
Thank you Eduardo for your wonderful work."

"Era has been loaded into my template, and has already proven really useful. Eduardo Tarilonte's attention to detail is always top drawer."
Stephan Massimo Jauch
Music and TV composer
"Eduardo Tarilontes ERA Medieval Legends war mir bei der Komposition des Scores zum „Vermächtnis der Wanderhure“ von unschätzbarem Wert. Die beeindruckende Klangqualität und die intuitive Spielbarkeit dieser Auswahl mittelalterlicher Instrumente sucht Ihresgleichen."

Keeping it real
While a collection of authentic medieval instruments won't be to everyones's tastes or requirements, there's little doubt that Era perfectly fills a gap in respect to sensitively sampled authetic music instruments. Those of a more creative persuasion will undoubtedly see the musical potential behind the sounds included especially given the detail and expression behind their sampling and mapping, and for instance inspiration, the Sound Design collection is a great additional resource to an otherwise pletiful collection of instruments.

I don’t believe there’s a product on the market that can match this libraries sound and level of detail on such a wide array of historical instruments. Eduardo Tarilonte has really hit it out of the park with the entire package. Although I have my gripes about the interface, it can be easily overlooked when there is such a wealth of opportunity within the library.
I believe this library is going to immediately appeal to video game composers as fantasy and historical music tends to be more prevalent in the medium, although many film and TV composers would have use for this library if their projects are fantasy/historical orientated.
Era Medieval Legends provides a great collection of realistic, authentic and most importantly, usable instruments. If you’re a composer looking to add some new color into your historical or fantasy music, this library is a must buy. Chris Mooney

What’s the bottom line?
Anytime Best Service releases a new product from Eduardo Tarilonte…I get excited.
I know the instruments are going to be super realistic and organic, and I know there are going to be another collection of amazing soundscapes, ambiances, and fx.
I give Era 4.5 out of 5 subs, regardless if this is your style of musical instrument or not, the quality and playability of the content just can’t be denied.
His libraries always allow me to experiment with instruments I may otherwise never encounter. Many I have no clue how to pronounce or their history….but that doesn’t stop me from playing them!
I also really dig how he gives you a quick info block on the instruments directly in the interface, really helps in exploring the content.
