At ANR we’re big fans of UVI Falcon (see our UVI Falcon review) and we’re happy to see the French company just released a new, even more powerful version.
Falcon 2 is a significant update to their flagship hybrid instrument now – 16 oscillators, 90+ effects, 11 modulators, dozens of scripts including sequencers, analyzers, harmonizers and utilities, over 1,000 handcrafted presets, 500 wavetables, MPE controller support, microtonal tuning, native multichannel audio up to 10.2 channels and more. Just… wow!
The new version is available immediately. It is FREE for all existing users and there’s a special promotion for new users (see below).
Falcon 2 adds the brand new Additive oscillator, 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; new effects such as Tape Echo, a recreation of the famous ‘70s hardware tape delay; SKF, a circuit-modeled second-order single op-amp nonlinear Sallen-Key lowpass filter; Formant Crusher, a screaming lo-fi take on formant filtering; updated Redux effect with an entirely redesigned algorithm for analog bit-crushing; a new Parametric LFO modulator, giving parametric control to shape, symmetry, pulse width, and swing; multiple new script-based sequencers including Euclidean Tonal, Euclidean Drum, and the featured 8-part X0X-style Drum Sequencer; 160+ new wavetables and 150+ new factory sounds.
Falcon 2 also brings many workflow improvements such as the new Modulation Quick Menu, improving usability of complex patches by providing easier navigation of modulators; and User Templates for keygroups, allowing users to create their own keygroup starting-points in addition to the factory Synth and Sample options.
To mark the milestone, UVI is offering a special promotion of 30% off with 2 free Falcon Expansions. Users can choose from Analog Motion, Atmospherics, Cinematic Shades, Devinity, Digital Motion, Eternal Funk, Ether Fields, Pulsar, Spectre and SubCulture. Additionally, every purchase of Falcon includes a $100 / 100€ voucher good towards any subsequent purchase. This deal is available immediately at uvi.net, valid through October 27th, 2019.
Falcon represents the pinnacle of hybrid instrument design, allowing unrestricted use and layering of oscillators, effects, modulation generators and event processors for nearly unlimited sound design potential. 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 and UVI-Powered soundbanks, and allows simultaneous authorization on up to 3 computers or iLok keys.
