hey!
ah, it's nice to join the community finally, often explore these threads and have been very useful over the years.

My name is Lucie, I'm originally from Scotland and based in London.
I'm a composer for media but also do sessions for video games using my nyckelharpa and voice.

I've started building virtual instruments and just released a kickstarter raising money for a bigger project called Folklorica.
Folklorica is a meeting of technology and mythology : we want to create colourful and affordable virtual instruments to inspire composers. Each instrument draws from a folkloric theme, a myth, a superstition or a taboo. Our interfaces are pretty snazzy too...

If you'd like to see more and support the project you can explore here!
Or, perhaps you know someone who might be interested in the project...

Thanks! and Have a lovely day !

welcome! glad to have you here.

i like the way your instrument sounds and will most likely support the kickstarter. i did have one thought though: in the video it says that you wanted to make a virtual instrument that was more accessible but, on the kickstarter it does not indicate this will be for Kontakt player.

if it is for kontakt full you may want to specify that so people know they have to make an additional investment. you may also want to set a stretch goal to try and raise more money to put the instruments into the kontakt player version(if they are for full).

the only reason i mention this is because in the video it seems like you are well intentioned to new/inexperienced users but, the issue is that most people that dont know much about sampled instruments also do not know the difference between kontakt full and kontakt player.

congrats on the really cool sounds and artwork. i am excited to see what Extinct looks/sounds like.

do you have a graphic for the t shirt yet or what color the shirt would be?

Ah! Thanks so much :)
and for your useful feedback too!

It's true, I did think about this, it might be misleading in the video as I don't mention kontakt. I did think that if i manage to raise a bit over my target I would try and license them with Native Instruments... I might actually adapt the text now to make it a bit more obvious about the kontakt thing. Thanks for that!

Yes, Extinct should be interesting, I'm in conversation with an instrument archive in London about developing it!

I don't have a set graphic for the t-shirt yet... I'm thinking it will be black or white with the logo. Am tempted to use the snake/anteater... These were my initial ideas...suggestions welcome!

Hi,

sorry for searching.

I think I found your youtube channel, your singing reminds me of Kate Bush. Nice Sounds, nice Instruments, nice harmonics.

Is their a way to share your kickstarter video within forums? I'm not able to share it on the german Synthesizer Forum and I think a video is always good thing when it comes to catch a persons interest.
But you may try that yourself, the users tend to get a bit hectic when a woman enters the forum, but it might be a good shot when raising funds.

Hey thanks so much for this, and so glad you like it!

That's a really good point about a video- I've uploaded the kickstarter video to vimeo so if you'd like to share it on the German Synthesizer Forum that would be so appreciated! :)
Hopefully this works: this is the video where you can find the URL. Thanks !

Good stuff, love how it sounds on your demo. People on this forum love instruments like Nyckelharpa, Tagelharpa and would pay good money for that. Keep going.
Won't be surprised if guys like Spitfire would hire you in future.
