Patchpool has released Falcon Scapes Vol 2, a 1.72 GB sound library featuring 53 patches for the UVI Falcon creative hybrid instrument.
Falcon Scapes Vol 2 contains a wealth of soundscapes, multi-sampled and synthesized pads, icy, abyssal and ominous drones, minimal and edgy sequences, impacts and stabs, beautiful cinematic textures, wondrous and haunting tones and some extraordinary dry and processed samples of sound sculptures made of huge springs, tubes and pipes. Processed vocal sounds and some ethereal choir textures perfect this library to the max.
Often granular textures and sample maps are layered with Falcon’s internal sound generators creating dense and fascinating sounds usable for a wide variety of genres. Quite a few samples were borrowed from the patchpool Iris subscription-library, all other samples were created exclusively for this library.
Many presets make use of Falcon’s multi-granular and sampling engine and there are also patches included using the wavetable, FM, pluck and analog oscillators. Many of these presets are running in split mode and/or layer sound textures via key-switches. Up to 25 Macros and switches plus the modulation wheel are assigned in each patch, many also use aftertouch, providing detailed control over volume envelopes, filtering, amplitude and pitch modulations, EQ-ing, dynamics, stereo animation, effects and more. Often complex tempo-synced modulation assignments are programmed so that these patches can provide interesting rhythmical animations. All patches use some sort of background image in the UI, split patches have colored key-zones in the Falcon keyboard for easier navigation.
Falcon Scapes Vol 2 is available for purchase for 35 EUR. Iris subscribers in 2016 and following get a 40% discount. Requires the full version of UVI Falcon.
