Anicent ERA Persia review

Sound Bytes

Excerpt

Final Thoughts

As always, Eduardo Tarilonte made a library that will be automatically ordered by people who already have some of his libraries.

Eduardo Tarilonte​It is not a standard sound library with a wide collection of all possible articulations for one or two instruments but a collection of many different instruments and tools that will help you to tell a story in the times of ancient Persia. ERA Persia is the best tool for that purpose, as Eduardo is a great storyteller. If you are in media music production then you are reading this article just to prove to yourself that you did the right thing by buying this library in advance. If this is not the case, then it is maybe a good time to check at least some audio and video demo clips that you can find on the Best Service Era Persia webpage.

Ancient ERA – Persia is a great collection of loops, phrases, instruments and soundscapes covering one very specific era and place. A perfect tool for all games, media and movie composers.

Coming Soon: Synthogy Studio Grands

Studio Grands coming soon

Two exceptional Studio Grands recorded in legendary Studios!

The latest in Synthogy´s highly acclaimed Ivory II series of virtual pianos, Ivory II Studio Grands features two classic studio grand pianos recorded in iconic studios.

Steinway Model B Grand Piano Power Station New England - Waterford, Connecticut

The Steinway B is one of the most recorded pianos in history and is widely considered the ideal studio piano. Its unique balance of size and power make it an extremely versatile instrument for all styles of music. This particular instrument was hand selected and prepared with the kind cooperation of Steinway & Sons® at their factory in Astoria New York.

Before recording, all piano regulation, voicing and tuning was done on-site by a Steinway concert technician before painstakingly sampled by Synthogys expert team. The recording sessions took place in the classic tuned live room of Power Station NE, an acoustic replica of the famed Power Station New York.

Bösendorfer 225 Grand Piano Firehouse Recording Studios - Pasadena, California

This Bösendorfer 225 Grand Piano possesses a deeply resonant tone and balance in all registers and has a distinguished place in the history of recorded music. Slightly longer than most studio grands at 7' 4", and with four additional low keys, this instrument has appeared on numerous Grammy®-winning and Grammy-nominated recordings. The sessions were engineered by Tony Shepperd in the state-of-the-art Studio A at Firehouse Recording Studios in Pasadena, its venerated sound captured in this historic piano room.

Coming Soon: The Orchestra

The Orchestra

The Orchestra by Sonuscore puts the sound of a complete European session orchestra at your fingertips.

Instead of going for the polished Hollywood-sound, we took a more direct approach, leaving our samples sound as real and edgy as possible. In a light-weight and no nonsense approach, all important articulations are made available to you in a streamlined and efficient virtual instrument. All sections are recorded in one room and designed to sound together out of the box without a lot of effort in mixing.

With the groundbreaking Ensemble-Engine, The Orchestra provides a vast number of inspiring orchestral colors and rhythms for you to discover.

5 stars for Kwaya

Congratulations to Eduardo Tarilonte  for the 5-star review in the SOS March issue!

Kwaya SOS review

 

 

 

Best Service Kwaya

Published March 2017

By John Walden

There is something quite magical about the sound of African choral singing. Producer Eduardo Tarilonte, who has an impressive track record when it comes to delivering high-quality niche sample libraries, and Best Service have done their best to capture the essence of that sound in Kwaya. This sample-based virtual instrument designed for Kontakt (the free Player or full version) features the voices of the award winning Uganda-based Aba Taano choir, a group of four male and two female singers. The library is built upon 10,000 individual samples and some 7GB of data.

Vocal Codex review at SLR

Vocal Codex Review

SLR

excerpt

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 Eduardos 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.

Best Service at the Synchron Stage Vienna

vienna calling

Best Service and VSL have a long history, going back to the year 2002 when the first VSL products were released and we at Best Service had the great honour to act as distributor for their fantastic products. VSL came a long way, Best Service too and sometimes along that road you unfortunately lose sight of your friends, especially in a fast changing virtual instrument market.

So what better idea could we have than to close down our office, surely not our web shop, pack our bags hop on the train and off to Vienna we go.

Staff Outing Deluxe!

 

It was probably the hottest weekend of this year when we arrived in this beautiful metropolis on the Danube river, all humming the famous Johann Strauss waltz.  Checked into a nice Hotel near the Naschmarkt we took a short break to get ready for the impressions to come, weve all seen the pictures, weve all talked about it… nobody has seen it in person.

building

Too far to go by Fiacre we reluctantly grabbed a cab, drove off toward “Rosenhügel” (rosehills). An area with plenty of history, 1919-1923 the Rosenhügel Filmstudios was built here. At that time the biggest and most advanced film studios in Austria. In the three years between 1939 and 1941 next to the Rosenhügel Studios a synchronisation complex was built, with a large and a small synchronization hall, cutting rooms and offices, now the home of the 
famous Synchron Stage Vienna.

 

welcome with ice cream

Stefan and Sabine gave us a warm welcome and safely guided us through the bustling technicians, artists and roadies packing up their film kit... everything top secret… naturally... We couldnt help ourselves but to have a quick peak from the foyer into stage A… Collecting our jaws from the floor, again Stefan and Sabine knew best what brings us back into the real world. Ice-cream!

Time for a break, ice-cream served, ice cold drinks and time to chatter. Herb Tucmandl, mastermind behind all this joined us so we could reconnect where we left off too long ago.

Synchron Stage welcome

Time for the tour! Finally Stefan showed us around, not only into one or two rooms, no. We got the full tour. The outside of the Synchron Stage might not impress, but what you find on the inside leaves you with your mouth open for a few hours.

composers loungeLets start with stage A, the huge 540 sq. m. recording space accommodates orchestras of up to 130 musicians. The room-in-room construction, based on a huge concrete foundation, features an up to three-meter gap all the way around the central main hall.
The massive construction, combined with the sound insulation and the special design of the air condition results in a ridiculously low noise-floor of 20 dBA with the air conditioner running. The 80 sq. m. Stage B had a challenge to impress after seeing Stage A, but hey, it offers natural light, Isolation Booths, Control B, tons of offices... all introduced to us by Stefan with little anecdotes about their creation until we finally reached Control A.

floor planThe tech-heads among us could not wait to get into this room equipped with finest state of the art technology. So we lingered here for quite a while, listened to the first recordings, talked tech stuff and were utterly impressed. Oh… yes, they also have a composers, producers and editors lounge… any questions?

Time again for some fun and amusement in the basement, where the instrument storage is located, it goes without saying that all rooms and the storage are connected to the same air flow. Well-tempered piano anyone? Ask yourself where the fun in that is? Well, VSL has as many as 200 percussion instruments in perfect condition stored down here… my ears still ache! 

After so many impressions we all were starved and thirsty and spent the rest of the evening at the great Tancredi, with delicious food and drinks… thanks friends!

fun in vienna

The next day we spared the VSL crew, and did all the things you must do when youre in Vienna, visit the Naschmarkt, eat Schnitzel at the Viennese institution Figlmüller, cruise through downtown Vienna in a Fiaker and last but not least enjoy a wonderful evening at the Heuriger. 

 

Thank you Best Service.

Wolfgang Wanko
