Falcon is an advanced and truly unlimited hybrid instrument, bringing together an extensive collection of cutting-edge oscillators, effects, modulators and event processors and delivering them in a workflow-adaptive and highly-scriptable environment. Falcon allows you to create and manipulate sound with unparalleled precision and finesse, from basic sample slicing and synth design to extravagantly modulated multitimbral hybrids. Falcon runs stand-alone or in your DAW as a plugin, is natively surround capable up to 10.2 channels, can take just about any sound you can throw at it for fuel (and some pictures, too) and is fully compatible with all UVI Powered instruments.

Falcon comes with an incredible collection of factory presets created by some of the most respected sound designers in the world. Tap them for instant gratification or to inspire your own sound design. Component presets are available for everything from oscillators and effects to modulation sequencers, allowing you to quickly explore options and find one that works, fast. Create your own presets for nearly any module and build custom libraries so you can easily recall ideas for future use.

As an added bonus, each Falcon license includes a $100 voucher good towards the purchase of any sound library at uvi.net. Enhance your Falcon experience immediately with one of our premium instruments like CS-M, or grab Mayhem of Loops for a massive fuel injection to your new sampling workstation.

Whether you're looking for a large package of new sounds and instruments to explore or a creative environment to realize efficient, reliable and sophisticated sound design with, Falcon is an innovative and powerful choice.

FEATURE OVERVIEW


OSCILLATORS
Falcon offers 15 highly-optimized oscillators covering the spectrum of modern sampling and synthesis techniques. Sample-based oscillators include IRCAM Granular, IRCAM Multi Granular, IRCAM Scrub, IRCAM Stretch, Sample, Slice and Stretch. Synthesis oscillators include Analog, Analog Stack, Drum, FM, Noise, Organ, Pluck and Wavetable. Falcon's oscillators sound incredible and are optimized for efficient performance.

EFFECTS
Over 80 high-quality effects are at your disposal, categorized for easy navigation: Delays, Reverbs, Modulation, Filters, Equalizers, Amps and Stereo, Drive and Distortions, Dynamics, Analysis and more. UVI's rich heritage of effect design is in full force with sophisticated delays, versatile reverbs (including the Sparkverb algorithm and an optimized convolution reverb), compressors, vinyl, reamping effects and more. Add effects at the patch level, as sends or even per note.

MODULATION
Rich sound means motion and Falcon can create it whenever and however you need it. AHD, Analog ADSR, Attack Decay, DAHDSR, Drunk, LFO, Multi Envelope and Step Envelope modulation generators all come standard and can be used to effect nearly anything in the Falcon environment. Create variation over time or on demand, drive your oscillators, effects or even other modulators, then add the most important parameters to the macro panel for clear and intuitive performance control.

EVENTS
Falcon's Event processors provide control and analysis of the pre-synthesis phase of your sound, from manipulating incoming MIDI data to creating it algorithmically. Utilize factory processors such as an advanced Arpeggiator, Micro Tuner, Chorder, Harmonizer, Strum simulator, MIDI Player, Unison and Shepard effects, or code your own from scratch with the powerful Lua scripting language.

INTERFACE
From editing at the component level to mixing and realtime performance of multiple instruments, Falcon's interface was designed to be both ergonomic and adaptable. Due to the nature of instrument design and interactive music performance, projects can quickly become large and multifaceted. Falcon's UI was structured to help mitigate that complexity and allow you to quickly focus regardless of level of detail.

PERFORMANCE
Falcon was designed with a rich performance toolset including full Open Sound Control (OSC) implementation, host automation, flexible MIDI and audio routing, MIDI learn, key range and velocity range controls, keyswitching and more. Whether you're working with a single instrument or an ensemble, in a DAW or standalone, Falcon gives you the control you need to create dynamic and captivating performances.

SOUNDS
Falcon comes with an incredible collection of presets created by some of the world's most recognized sound designers, but there's much more to discover. Falcon is fully-compatible with all UVI and UVI-Powered instruments from a growing list of companies like Acousticsamples, Gospel Musicians, VI Labs and Virharmonic.

SCRIPTING
Falcon implements custom scripts throughout its architecture allowing you to create everything from custom Event processors to professional-level skinned instruments with the powerful and lightweight Lua scripting language. Don't know anything about scripting? Don't worry, Falcon has a built-in visual editor for creating fully customized macro-driven interfaces.
