Folk Fiddle 2 is our flagship roots violin library. With a plethora of articulations on offer, and our hyper-powerful overlay threshold functionality, both bringing a playability and fluidity unmatched in its arena. With true legato, and a series of scale-adaptive nuanced turns and grace notes that blend effortlessly into one another to craft beautiful folk inspired melodies.

FREE with every copy of the Folk Fiddle 2 comes THE SHAMAN’S DRUM. A deceivingly complex frame drum texturally, build to be straight forward to use, with a simple ‘beater position’ control that allows you to

move, in real time, between different striking positions.

 

Important Note: Folk Fiddle 2 requires the FULL version of Kontakt 5/6/7 or above. Do not purchase this if you only have Kontakt Player.

Playable and Great Sounding Fiddle

Well, the title sums up my feelings. Amazing tone, well designed GUI makes it easy to set up a flexible and very playable instrument. Without key switches! And the legatos are smooth and fast. Nice library.

Folk Fiddle 2 - Big improvement

I was user from the beginning with a version and I have to say, this company is really working on
improving their products. The overall playability as well as soundwise the convincing instrument
is now far ahead from the Beginning. A rounded library, and I am sure, if something is
to be improved, they will do that. A lot of companies could need a share of this costumer friendly attitude.

I just acquired the latest update for the Folk Fiddle 2 with all the new articulations. It sounds fabulous! When I listen to one of the demos onYoutube it sounds soooo...realistic! I can't wait until I can learn how it all works! Great job! Thanks!
