INFINITE SOUND


Falcon gives you everything you need to create the sound of your dreams, delivering an extensive collection of cutting-edge tools in an open-ended semi-modular environment.

A powerful instrument for seasoned pros and beginners alike, Falcon can be easily adapted to serve many needs. Whether you're looking for inspiring sounds for a new song, or are deep-diving into creative sound design, Falcon can be as nimble or calculating as the task requires.

Explore sound with precision and finesse, from basic sample slicing and synth design to modulated multitimbral hybrids, create incredible layered synths, expressive MPE instruments, powerful drums, intricately chopped breaks, multi-channel surround sound, imaginative sound design, generative sequences, wild effects and much more.



UNLIMITED SOUND SOURCES
Falcon includes 20 oscillators providing a wide range of synthesis and sample-based sound generation including virtual analog, wavetable, phase distortion, FM, additive, drum, noise, formant, pluck, harmonic resonators, bowed string, sample, stretch, granular, and more. Layer them, map them, modulate them, make them yours.

POWERFUL, INSPIRING EFFECTS


Over 100 high-quality effects are included, giving you numerous flavors of delay, reverb, modulation, filtering, EQ, amps, distortion, dynamics, analyzers and more. Effects can be instanced throughout your patch, used in parallel, and deeply modulated. UVI's proprietary DSP ensures pristine quality, from lush modulated reverbs to incredibly accurate physically-modeled compressors, and beyond.

MODULATION
Add movement and dynamics to any part of your sound with envelopes, MSEGs, LFOs, drunk and random generators, and more. Modulate your oscillators, your effects, even modulate your modulators! Remap and quantize them with Mappers, or make it physical with extensive support for MIDI CC, OSC, and host automation sources.



EVENTS AND SCRIPTING
Manipulate incoming MIDI or generate it algorithmically using a wide variety of included scripts to enhance, augment, and modulate your performances – then pipe that data to the rest of your studio, all without needing to know how to program. And for those comfortable with Lua, Falcon offers a powerful way to extend its functionality, and create unique processors and instruments of your own design.

WORKFLOW
Falcon's interface is adaptable to your needs, from exploring presets and editing sounds, to creating instruments, mixing multichannel performances, and more. Features like UI Snapshots, program templates, extensive preset implementation, and tree view make realizing your inspirations all that much faster.



WHAT'S NEW IN FALCON 3?


Since Falcon's initial release we have been committed to refining and expanding its creative potential. With one ear to R&D, and the other to user feedback, we regularly add new features, content, and optimizations, all at no cost to our existing users.



Version 3 sees the addition of 3 new oscillators including VOSIM (formant), Bowed String, and Harmonic Resonator, 4 new effects including Opal, Ladder Filter, Dispersor, and Harmonic Resonator FX, MIDI Out support, new scripts, numerous workflow improvements including UI snapshots, launch screen, and more, and an updated and refreshed factory library.

Falcon 3 comes with 3 all-new oscillators! VOSIM (a tribute to vintage vocal synths) offers 2 unique modes for creating formant sounds, Bowed String gives you a virtual bow and string with multiple articulation modes, and Harmonic Resonator gives you a multi-layer exciter feeding 6 tunable resonators with coupling.



4 new effects deliver powerful creative possibilities within Falcon. Explore Opal, our advanced physically-modeled optical-compressor, Ladder Filter, our take on the classic East Coast filter, Harmonic Resonator, a signal-based resonator bank effect, and Dispersor, a unique transient shaper with variable spread, frequency, order, and stages.

Falcon event processors are a huge resource for creative inspiration, version 3 adds a number of new and improved scripts including the MIDI CC Smoother, Node Arp, Motion Grid, Snowflakes, and improved MPE. Last but not least, you can now control external software and hardware instruments with MIDI Out.

Work smarter and faster with new features like Workspaces, allowing you to save and recall UI states to quickly move between customized views, a new start screen with 21 new program templates can help users jump-start the creative process, a new 'Mappers' editor and tab bring these powerful tools closer to the surface, finally numerous UI improvements have been made to help fine tune legibility and use.

A completely refreshed Falcon Factory offers 1,500+ presets with improved macro controls and all-new UIs, enhancing the entire library while adding dozens of all-new sounds.
