UVI updates Falcon to version 1.1
UVI has released Falcon v1.1, adding new presets, effects, enhanced oscillators, MPE device support and more.
Falcon 1.1 increases the factory library with 100 new presets. The update also debuts ‘Thorus’, a new, 8-voice chorus effect designed to reduce artifacts for more depth and clarity. Thorus’s variable voice architecture and intuitive controls provide rich and dynamic textures beyond the scope of traditional chorus effects. In addition, two new rack FX have been added, including mid-side maximizer MaxMS as well as multi-band distortion effect Fuzz4.
Enhancements have also been made to the FM and Pluck oscillators, hence extending Falcon’s synthesis capabilities. The FM oscillator is said to have been redesigned with new controls per-operator, including a fixed frequency toggle (Hz mode), fine ratio control (operating as a frequency multiplier in Hz mode), phase start control and harmonic snap mode. The Pluck oscillator has been updated with extended sample controls including Start Time, Detune and Key Follow, and the Noise section now includes a Sustain Mode and the String section a stereo mode. Finally, support has been added for MPE devices such as the Roli Seaboard and LinnStrument, allowing Falcon to take full advantage of these devices' advanced expressive capabilities. Dedicated MPE presets are also included in the updated Falcon factory soundbank.
Falcon 1.1 is a free update for all licensed Falcon users. It is available immediately through the ‘My Products’ page at uvi.net.
For others, Falcon can be purchased for $349 at UVI's website and through authorized dealers, and a free $100 voucher is included with every Falcon license good towards the purchase of any soundbank at uvi.net (valid for 2 months from purchase date).
