Recordings for 'Era II: Medieval Legends' took place in various 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 reverb and the sound shaping process.
