We heard on the grapevine that UVI had something rather special planned to be released before November this year... but despite the best attempts of the good folks at UVI to assure us it was something rather special, we didn't quite realise just how impressive it would be until today. Here's what UVI have to say about their new Falcon hybrid instrument.
Paris, October 28th, 2015 – UVI announces Falcon, a fully-featured hybrid instrument with 15 oscillators covering both synthesis and sampling techniques, over 80 effects, extensive modulation control and more, available now at an introductory price of $229 through November 9th, 2015. As an added bonus, every Falcon license includes a free $100 voucher good towards any soundbank on uvi.net.
Falcon represents the pinnacle of hybrid instrument design, allowing unrestricted use and layering of oscillators, effects, modulation generators and event processors. From advanced time stretching and granular sample engines by the renowned IRCAM institute to pure synthesis oscillators like Wavetable, FM, VA, Drum and the Pluck physical modeling oscillator, Falcon provides a sophisticated set of tools for near in nite sound and instrument design potential.
Falcon sports a fast and intuitive interface that adeptly handles both basic tasks and deep instrument design. Easily slice a sample across your keyboard, add effects globally or per note, drag-and-drop modulations and sub-modulations or grab one of the many script processors to creatively tune, modify or sequence your patterns. Parameters can be mapped as macros and easily controlled by MIDI, OSC or host automation and even arranged as custom control panels through a built-in visual editor. Advanced users can take instrument design further with scripting. Create custom script processors to generate or modify MIDI data or even design fully-skinned instruments with the Lua language.
Falcon offers native 64-bit operation in stand-alone and plug-in formats, supports surround setups up to 10.2 channels, is compatible with all UVI powered soundbanks, and allows simultaneous authorization on up to 3 computers or iLok keys.
Pricing and Availability:
Falcon is available immediately at an introductory price of $229 through November 9th, 2015 (regularly $349) from authorized dealers and the UVI online shop. A free $100 voucher is included with every Falcon license, good towards any soundbank at uvi.net (valid for 2 months from time of purchase).
