At Falcon’s heart is the UVI Engine XT™, a robust, reliable and CPU-efficient DSP powerhouse that’s been constantly refined over the last 10 years. Leaned on by some of the largest names in pro audio, Engine XT provides a host of features that make Falcon one of the most flexible and feature-rich instruments on the market. What’s happening under the hood has a significant effect on your experience.
Amongst the numerous amounts of features stuffed inside of Falcon, here are some of our favourites to get you intrigued:
Built-in custom scripting language – customise everything from events to pro-level instruments. – Don´t know anything about scripting? Don´t worry, Falcon has a built-in visual editor for creating fully customized macro-driven interfaces.
Fully-compatible with all UVI Powered instruments – if it runs in the UVI Workstation (.ufs file) you can get it into Falcon.
Synthesis – 15 highly-optimised oscillators, covering from synthesis to sampling 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.
Sampling – Falcon comes with an incredible collection of factory presets (including over 600MB factory library) created by some of the most respected sound designers in the world. Tap them for instant gratification or to inspire your own sound design.
Import your own sample libraries – Supported File Formats include: Soundbanks (.ufs), AIFF, FLAC, MP3, MP4 (with QuickTime installed on Windows for MP3/MP4), REX1, REX2, SDII (on Mac), WAV, WAV64, SFZ, SND, CAF.
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.
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 & Performance – 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.
No iLok key required – Falcon uses iLok License Manager for authorisation and includes 3 activations per license. Authorisations can be stored on computer hard drive or iLok dongle. Initial activation requires an iLok account (free) and an active internet connection.
