Era II is the best VST for Medieval and European folk instruments by far. As I recall, it includes excellent, true legato samples of all the instruments you mention and then some. There is also a fantastic vocal library add on including tavern singers and female voice by Celica Soldream!


Nvm, I just saw you're looking for freeware...

There's an ok uilleann pipe sound included with kontakt player default instruments.

For a harp and dulcimer, you could try this: http://www.dskmusic.com/dsk-world-stringz/ 


For all these instruments though, you could try searching for free sfz libraries. I know I had a few on my old pc. Lots of people sample instruments like these for fun and put them up for free on music forums and such. You'll have to look around a bit to find decent ones though.

I found version 1 of Era for $45 instead of $259 for version II.  Certainly makes a difference for me, and thanks for asking the question, as you helped me to find something valuable at an affordable price.  It looks to be 64 bit also.  Best regards, 5 years later...

Hello. I am looking for various Celtic/Irish Vsts, including but not limited to-

Bagpipes/Urlian (however you spell it) Pipes, dulcimers, harps, penny whistles, and other stuff.

Must be free as well.

If you have found any, please link below. thanks. 

I would defintely go for the really sophisticated ERA VSTi stuff from Eduardo Tarilonte, especially for Celtic ERA 2.

And good news for you - there's a also free version with a few VST instruments from different collections like Celtic ERA, Forest Kingdom II, ERA II: Medieval Legends, NADA, Gu Zheng, Titan 2 and other ones (contains a few VSTi presets with full functions, lots of VSTis with limited playing range or other ones with limited articulations, limited features or just a few VSTi presets as demo versions).

The collection is created for the (also completely free) Engine 2 sample player, which is one of my favourite external sample players, and it is called "Engine Artists Library".
It contains around 2,5 GB of chosen content.

It might be just a tiny piece of the full collections, but it should be MUCH better than most VSTi freeware and it might help you a lot with your remix projects for The Legend of Zelda series.


You can check it out and download it for free at Best Service:


Good luck with that. ))
