POWERFUL HYBRID SYNTHESIZER FOR INFINITE POSSIBILITIES

Mix and modulate samples, synthesis modules, fx and more in todays most extensive and streamlined hybrid instrument




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.

WIDE RANGE OF SOUND SOURCES


Mix and match sound sources using sampler-like key zones with sample-based or pure synthesis oscillators:
— Each sample can be individually manipulated using timestretch and pitch-shift algorithms as well as granular synthesis from IRCAM. Loops can be sliced, chopped-up and mapped to the keyboard using the Slice oscillator.
— 9 pure synthesis oscillators including virtual analog, wavetable, phase distortion, FM and additive type, and even physical modeling with the pluck oscillator

UNIQUE AND POWERFUL EFFECTS


Over 90 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. Add effects at the patch level, as sends or even per note. Including Sparkverb, Thorus, an optimized convolution reverb and many, many more.

MODULATION


Rich sound means movement and Falcon can create it whenever and however you need it. AHD, Analog ADSR, Attack Decay, DAHDSR, Drunk, classic and parametric 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 AND SCRIPTING


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, Drum, bassline and euclidean sequencers, Micro Tuner, Chorder, Harmonizer, Strum simulator, MIDI Player, Unison and Shepard effects, or code your own from scratch with the powerful Lua scripting language.

WORKFLOW


Extensive, adaptable, Falcon's resizable HiDPI interface helps you easily focus on the task at hand with a clear and efficient workflow. From the Tree view where you can jump in and edit any aspect of your patch, to built-in browsers for files, favorites and modules, Falcon is built for speed. New features like User Templates and the Modulation Quick View are just a couple of the ways we're continuing to make Falcon faster and more powerful to use.

In-Depth

Oscillators



Falcon includes 16 oscillators covering a wide range of modern synthesis methods from basic sample playback to more advanced generators like Pluck, Wavetable and IRCAM Multi Granular.
One of Falcon's greatest strengths is its ability to freely layer oscillators to create elaborate hybrid instruments that capitalize on the unique features of both sample-based and algorithmic sound creation. There are no preset limits on the quantity or type of oscillators you can use, you're limited only by your computers processing power and imagination.

Synthesis


ANALOG

A virtual analog oscillator outfitted with a traditional selection of waveforms including Sine, Saw, Square, Triangle, Noise and Pulse. Includes pulse width modulation, sync control and a robust unison section supporting phase, tuning and spread control on up to 8 voices.

DRUM

Designed for the creation of rhythmic and percussive sounds, DRUM utilizes both a pitched oscillator and noise generator. Both pitched and noise oscillators sport discrete AD amplitude envelopes with the former providing pitch modulation. EQ and distortion are available in the master section for broad shape control.

ANALOG STACK

An 8-voice implementation of the Analog oscillator designed to facilitate the rapid layering. Each voice utilizes the same basic engine found in the Analog oscillator, substituting the Unison and Sync sections for Pan and Gain to facilitate spatial and level mixing and a pitch section for subtle to extreme voice detuning.

FM

A four operator FM oscillator which can be used in either ratio or Hz modes and is arrangeable in one of 11 configurations. Additional operator controls include Fine Ratio/Freq Multiplier, Snap Ratio (which quantizes modulation frequencies to harmonics) and Start Phase.

NOISE

A robust noise oscillator offers 15 unique noise shapes including Band, S&H, Static I, Static II, Violet, Blue, White, Pink, Brown, Lorenz, Rossler, Crackle, Logistic, Dust and Velvet. Dynamic shapes provide additional control such as Static Density and Logistic Chaos.

ORGAN

A drawbar-style organ oscillator with 8 bars representing different harmonics traditionally used on pipe organs. ORGAN provides discrete Gain and Pan controls for each partial and a percussion section with Fast/Slow and Harmonic controls. Pair with the rotary effect for a classic organ sound.

PLUCK

A physically inspired string synthesis module, Pluck utilizes both algorithmic and sample-based excitations to create rich harmonic sounds with natural decay. Choose from a selection of factory impulses or load your own samples, modulate sample start time and tune, adjust the initial excitation, coupling of multiple strings, and finally contribution of sample, synth and noise generators.

WAVETABLE

A fully-featured wavetable oscillator provides multiple phase distortion modes and a robust unison section with wave and stereo spread across up to 8 voices and FM support. Modulate the Wave Index to sweep through wavetables which can be chosen from a large selection of factory content. Wavetable can also import a variety of user files including WAV files (single or sequential), user tables or graphic image files which are converted pixel-rows to cycles, brightness to amplitude.

ADDITIVE

An easy-to-use additive oscillator inspired by classic subtractive synthesis, with additive twists like partial stretching, frequency shifting, fractional order filtering, even/odd harmonic control, continuous morph from square to saw and more.


SAMPLING


At the heart of Falcon’s sample oscillators is a full-fledged sample editor allowing you to quickly make changes to your samples without moving to an external application. Crop, normalize, silence, reverse, add fades, or even bounce Falcon’s effects to your sample in place. Additionally, you can select multiple files and batch them all at once.

SAMPLE

A no-frills workhorse sample oscillator, ideal for basic soundboards and traditional sample playback. The Sample display can be interactively resized and provides editing functions such as crop, normalize, silence, reverse and fade in/out along with the ability to apply any of Falcon's effects in-place. Due to Falcon’s ability to efficiently stream samples from disk you can manage tens of thousands of samples at once without a massive RAM footprint.

SLICE

Ideal for rhythmic and percussive material, the Slice oscillator can divide samples into discrete keygroups to be resequenced. Adjust transient sensitivity manually or use embedded markers like those found in REX files. Drag-and-drop export of sliced file maps in a variety of ways including as a Falcon patch, discrete WAV files, or MIDI sequence.

STRETCH

A realtime, low-CPU pitch-shifting sample oscillator. Stretch can adjust pitch up to ±2 octaves while maintaining sample duration. Freely adjust sample start time, playback mode and tempo analysis. Use the Solo Mode button to switch between discrete monophonic and polyphonic pitch-shifting algorithms.

IRCAM GRANULAR

IRCAM's premier granular oscillator, divides an audio sample into grains and recombines them for realistic pitch shifting or soundscape generation. Adjust Grain parameters such as Size, Density, Jitter, Position, Speed, Direction, Loop Mode, Pitch Variation and Correction Method.

IRCAM MULTI GRANULAR

A multi-voice implementation of the IRCAM Granular oscillator which can be used to great effect to achieve a range of complex unison sounds. Includes the same control set from IRCAM Granular with an additional section to control voice quantity, position and spread.

IRCAM STRETCH

Similar to the Stretch oscillator, but implementing IRCAM's high-quality phase vocoder for time-stretching and pitch-shifting with transient and envelope preservation. Requires more processing power than the standard pitch-shifting algorithms used in other oscillators but with a significant quality improvement.

IRCAM SCRUB

Similar in use to IRCAM Granular, IRCAM Scrub offers random-access scrubbing, speed and directional control but uses the same top-quality algorithm found in IRCAM Stretch.


Effects



Falcon includes over 90 high-quality effects, categorized for easy navigation: Delays, Reverbs, Modulation, Filters, Equalizers, Amps and Stereo, Drive and Distortions, Dynamics, Analysis and more. With effects suited for nearly every need from creative mangling to precise sound sculpting, mixing and analysis, Falcon provides a tremendous sound design facility.

Effects within Falcon can be instanced as sends on effect busses, at the program, layer or note level and allow for extensive control of your signal and an unrestricted approach to sound and instrument design. Additionally, effects can be racked in an EffectRack for parallel and multi-band processing, or as a central, reusable multi-effect with macro-driven controls.
