UVI has announced the release of an update to its creative hybrid instrument Falcon, bringing new features and sounds to the

Since Falcon’s initial release we have been committed to expanding its creative potential. Listening to our user’s experience and feedback, we regularly add new factory content, modules, enhanced functionality and optimizations.

Version 2.8 packs a powerful selection of updates including a new oscillator, new effects, new sequencers and scripts, new presets, and more, all free for existing users!

Changes in Falcon v2.8

  • All-new Texture oscillator designed to help you create complex and evolving textures and noise with two channels of sample playback, streamlined controls, filters, blending, and a massive library of preset sounds to get you going.
  • 7 massive new effects, including a brand new pitch shifting engine available in Shifter (single) and Harmonizer (multi) flavors, the enhanced Dual Delay X, now with dispersion, diffusion, digital grit, and tape saturation in the feedback loop, the all-new Diffuse Delay and Velvet Delay, two novel delay lines ideal for morphing sounds into lush ambient washes, Granulizer, a granular audio effect ideal for adding texture and variation, and Feedback Compressor, a modern and featured take on vintage compressor designs.
  • New sequencers and scripts ranging from creative pattern generators to powerful performance utilities. Explore the new Chip Arp to instantly create video game arps, Ostinato Arp to create evolving 4-parts patterns, Slice Remixer, a powerful expander for the Slice oscillator that gives you a discrete interface for sequencing and randomizing your slices into new patterns, Strum Wheel, a performance utility that lets you strum notes using MIDI CC, Tape Mod, for adding a lo-fi vibe with wow and flutter, and more.
  • Updated Factory Library, now with an all-new “Organic Texture” category. Here you can find 100 new patches exploring territory made possible by the new Texture oscillator, new effects, and new scripts included in version 2.8. Now with a total of 1500 presets, the Falcon Factory Library continues to expand and inspire.
  • Enhanced Multi Envelope modulator. You’ve always been able to drag-and-drop an audio file onto a Multi Envelope to extract a gain envelope, but now you can do the same and extrapolate envelopes for brightness, transients, and pitch, opening many exciting doors for sound design.
