**Upgrade from ERA Medieval Legends to ERA II**
ERA II takes you to a distant journey, deeper into the medieval than ever. Eduardo Tarilonte, creator of award-winning libraries such as Forest Kingdom, Desert Winds, Epic World and Shevannai, presents the considerably expanded version of the first edition of ERA Medieval Legends.
ERA II offers an even more comprehensive selection of historic instruments. This library holds the perfect instruments for film - and television soundtracks with historical background, fantasy-games as well as folk-music, medieval-rock and related compositions.
For ERA II, Eduardo Tarilonte has created 25 new instruments, resulting in a total number of over 70 instruments, all being recorded in highest detail and quality. In addition, there are a large number of soundscapes available - all ready to be used within the advanced Engine-Player and its generously expanded and specifically optimized user interface
Recordings for ERA II took place in different selected spanish studios, such as Madrid's Infinity Studios as well as Eldana Studios in Dueñas, just to name some. Also, numerous talented musicians contributed their skills to the project, among them Rinaldo Valldeperas (crumhorns, shawms, renaissance soprano recorder), Efren López (Gittern, Bass Citole, Medieval Psaltery, Medieval Lute), Cecilia Nocilli, Lorena Porres and many others.
All instruments and voices have been recorded using a Neumann U87 microphone being accompanied by selected highest quality preamps from manufacturers such as Avalon and Neve. The instruments have intentionally been captured with close mic techniques avoiding unwanted room information to enable the user full control over the following sound shaping process and added effects.

- 10 flutes
- 8 reed instruments
- 4 war horns
- 3 brass instruments
- 9 bowed strings instruments
