    In-Depth
    OSCILLATORS
    [​IMG]
    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
    SAMPLING

    SYNTHESIS
    ANALOG
    [​IMG]
    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
    [​IMG]
    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
    [​IMG]
    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
    [​IMG]
    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
    [​IMG]
    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
    [​IMG]
    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
    [​IMG]
    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
    [​IMG]
    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
    [​IMG]
    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
    [​IMG]
    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
    [​IMG]
    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
    [​IMG]
    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
    [​IMG]
    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
    [​IMG]
    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
    [​IMG]
    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
    [​IMG]
    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
    [​IMG]
    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.

    Falcon ships with an impressive collection of 1,000 factory patches designed by some of the industry's top sound designers. Covering everything from classic synthesis methods, percussion, physical modeling, sample-driven granular and multi granular soundscapes to multi-oscillator hybrids. The 1,000 presets were all created to an extremely high quality standard, delivering an extraordinary and hugely versatile selection of sounds right out of the box.
    Categorically divided for easy browsing, Falcon's factory sounds provide deep performance and editing control via customized macros. Make broad-stroke changes to get the right feel and then fine tune the sound to fit your mix without ever leaving the macro panel. If a sound is close but still off, you can tab over to the Edit panel at any time for total control. Factory sounds can provide instant gratification or can be used as fuel for your own sound design.

    The only negative thing is that it is using an iLok, so thank you, I won't buy it :)

    You havent needed a ilok dongle for ages.
    You authorise it on your computer in 10 seconds and thats it (not sure what peoples problem is, ha, ha, it takes seconds. Quicker than typing a serial or challenge response. One of the fastest authorisations, after the initial acount set up obviously)

    The 1st one was already a real monster similar to the VAST synthesis, I woncder how this one will sound.

    EDIT: i just finished seeing the demo movie and it sounds truly amazing, the kind of toy that could keep you busy for the rest of your life probably.

    Jesus this is the most comprehensive instrument I’ve ever seen. The thing that always stopped me from getting into it was how having so many options can almost be a paralytic. I still think something like avenger or zebra is all the synth I need

    This is the 'danger' with that kind of power synth: You are so taken into sound creation that you forget to make some music and only concentrate on synthesis.

    Once again, truly amazing: One of the rare soft synth that could easily replace his hardware brothers.

    Since it's possible to install the iLock like a serial number on three machines, there is no USB licenser necessary anymore.
    It works flawlessly and easier than most online auths and much better than Steinbergs USB licenser.

    Em, until your pc or ilok d'ongle crashes which will happen sooner or later, and from what people say reaching ilok guys to help you is a nightmare...
    I'm impressed by the monster (have seen nate aka protoculture use it on videos). But I'm already struggling to make full use of serum, avenger and lately Lion, with thousands of presets for each (and that's only the synths I actually purchased, arf). Still the offer is attractive, but as Adsr was telling, people should resists gear envy as much as possible

    Haha, such an exact word! I couldn't say it better.

    Zebra (and others): Less is more! :disco:
    Falcon: More is more! :unsure:

    @Dave_Music @twoheart @lorenzolamasse I had problems with software iLok, I lost all 76 licenses, it took me a week to recover them, I had to write e-mail to each manufacturer and show them proof of software purchase to reset my licenses, thank you very much for this honor, but never again, long live sister site :metal:

    But the free update for existing customers is a very generous act. Thank you, UVI! Downloaded. Will test it.

    Wow, I can't believe they are giving the update away free, Im downloading it as we speak. I bought it a few years ago on sale for like $149 I believe. Great little surprise for the day! :wink:

    Oh, I really understand your pain.
    It's the same with any form of authorizations.
    This is why we all love our dear sistersite. And hopefully there once will be a k'ed version of Falcon. :)

    Usually that's the bearer of these that crashes first, they are supposedly reliable and maintained (at least a little bit more than ilok software haha)

    UVI gives you 3 activations per software or sound library, so if you crash (which I have had happen once before in 5 years) then you use activation 2 or 3, while you get activation 1 back, if you need to. So dont know why everyone hates ilok so much.
