Hey!

Folklorica is now live!

www.folkloricasounds.com

Folklorica is a virtual instrument project designed and built by composer Lucie Treacher (me!), which uses tales, taboos and superstitions as starting points in creating colourful and conceptual virtual instruments for Full Kontakt 6.4.1 and up. A meeting of technology and mythology, these instruments have been created by fusing together field recordings with rare acoustic instruments and electronics. The interfaces are really cute too, featuring bespoke illustrations by Margaux Carpentier.

50% of the profits from sales go to an environmental charity :)

My 3 latest instruments up there are
- Extinct : a set of virtual instruments that reimagine long lost animals (6 patches, 6 animals)
- Fiddlestycks : a nyckelharpa atmos instrument to transport you to the snow-speckled forests of Scandinavia
- Bothy Beats : a free percussive toolkit recorded in the Highlands of Scotland

50% of the profits from the sales of Extinct go to an environmental charity :)

Thanks and really hope you enjoy them!

Lucie

Love the sounds and beautiful design/artwork... obviously a passion project(s)! Don't have K6 yet, but I'm going to snag Fiddlesticks because it just feels right... and maybe push me to fork out the $50 to upgrade. Good fortunes with your endeavors!

Congratulations! Totally love all the instruments, grab them all and love love love the sound.
However I wish there's a pan option for Extinct.

I'm pleasantly surprised! Very natural and organic-sounding libraries that often remind me of recently released "Albion Solstice". I will definitely keep them on my radar for future purchases should I need the sounds in that vein. Also, congratulations on very creative and imaginative artworks and for supporting environmental charities.

All the best in your work!

defo buying Fiddlesticks, nice work on it! although must admit i feel a bit limited by having a very small portion on the keyboard for each "patch/expression", nonetheless the sound design is top notch

Just snapped up fiddlestycks! I’ve been wanting some nyckleharpa textures for a while and I’m loving the organic quality of the demos; looking forward to playing around with these sounds later today!

Thanks a lot and good luck!
