Celtic ERA was recorded at Eldana Studios in Dueñas, Spain. All instruments were recorded by outstanding musicians from the Irish music scene.
This is how Martino Vacca (Uilleann Pipes, Irish Flute, Low Whistles and Whistle), Karen Hickey (Fiddle), Carlos Martín Aires (Acoustic Guitar, Irish Bouzouki, Tenor Banjo), Fernando Mosquera (Highland Pipes 2, Gaida, Galician Bagpipe, Scottish Smallpipes, Wooden Low Whistle and Asubio), Jean Yves Magre (Highland Pipes 1), Marie Agnes Magre (Breton Bombarde), Pablo Vergara (Bodhrans), Álvaro García "Pichu" (Scottish drum, skin snare, bass drum and tom) in the studio.
In addition, the creator of the library, Eduardo Tarilonte, played concertinas and Celtic harps himself. The four historical instruments included were recorded by Abraham Cupeiro.
All instruments were recorded with selected Kahayan U47 mics & preamps as well as premium ribbon mics. The miking was deliberately close and therefore without space. So you always have full control over the sound and effect design. This is another reason why you can easily combine the sounds of Celtic ERA 2 with the other libraries by Eduardo Tarilonte.
