    Re: Major Release | Anthology: Celtic Wind

    Looks like I'm finally going to have to buy Kontakt one of these days just so I can have the Bela D libraries. Looks and sounds really cool. I've been admiring the Giovanni library for quite some time now. This is going to push me over the edge I'm afraid. Now where was that credit card..........? Seriously though, sounds great, best of luck (which has probably nothing to do with the success of Bela D.

    Disapointed there isn't a good musette accordian - and where do all the other sounds in the demos come from?

    What exactly is a 'war horn' - and why is it Celtic?

    Seriously, I'd like to know more about this instrument (Celtiberic War Horn) - I can't find any reference to it on the web. What is it exactly? And where on earth did you find one to sample?

    I'm with Eric on this one.

    Need to buy K2 after all.

    Bloody hell more money to spend. The upright bass, then K2, then the anthology! and sooooo many more are waiting! :@

    Ok!

    Heard the demos!

    Mighty impressive indeed! I have to say that the concept is original (don't think that there are many Celtic libraries out there really. I personally know none...) and that the price is something more than great! Which also reminds me that Bela D. Media has EDU prices, which can be used commercially(?) Unless I'm mistaken here.

    But either way 189$=100£ which is more than brilliant price! Especially for a whole library and not a solo instrument...

    Thanks Francis! Thanks Bela D. Media

    Those demos sound great. I'm excited about having the different whistles since I'm tired of the same ol' recorder sound I have.

    I'll definitly have this on my Christmas list.

    Congratulations.
    Some passage of the demos seems to me a little too loud for the spirit of the instruments, but the overall sound is very effective and evocative, it shows the library potential.

    Wow! The Uilleann Pipes demo is quite real sounding. This is definitely a hard instrument to do right.
