Folktek Collection Volume 1 version 2 (sound library)

"The Folktek Collection Volume One by Big Pauper with Arius Blaze is one of the most unique sample collections I have ever heard. Each sample has been meticulously recorded with careful attention to detail and playability. I have longed for having many of their beautiful instruments and this collection now brings all of that into one environment. Highly recommend to all producers/sound designers looking for new sounds that are totally unique and out of this world!"
-Richard Devine (Warp Records, Native Instruments)

With the release of the Folktek Collection Vol. 2, the price has now been lowered.

By strong request, we've created this version 2 of our folktek collection for those who choose not to delve into the kontakt-based vst environment. We've recorded and arranged a massive collection of over 1.76gb of the best folktek sounds to be integrated however the player likes - whether it be with other programs such as Logic, Audio Mulch, Ableton, etc. or straight to hardware sampler.

The Folktek Collection Volume One by Big Pauper with Arius Blaze digs deep into the copper clad lines of electric and pulls fourth the nastiest, sweetest, most monstrously beautiful and torturous sounds of Folktek.

We spent over a year compiling and creating these sounds and arranging them in a coherent manner for easy use as kits, noises, glitches, sweet drone and extended sound scapes.

Volume One features sounds intentionally designed for a broad range of artists and players - whether you're scoring a film and need something atmospherically innovative, a producer tired of the same old 808 sounds, or a musician looking for an expressive new sound to "play".

This sound library includes the majority of the sounds from the Kontakt based Folktek Collection Vol 1 Version 1 with the addition of new and previously unreleased folders and sounds.

The Folktek sound represents a large body of work (hundreds of instruments) created over the past 12 years.

In this project, we've done what very few folks could possibly do by allowing multiple small scale and larger folktek works to intermingle. We asked the question; what happens when the Harmonic Field taps into the Time Scape Wave Sequencer and runs through the Time Machine?

This collection takes what we believe to be the finest of Folktek work and the sounds they create and makes integrated into any format you're familiar with whether it be hardware or software. The result is a vast array of folktek sound, from ambient noise scapes to hardcore percussion.
