UVI has released Falcon 3, which they say is a significant update to their flagship hybrid instrument, featuring new oscillators including VOSIM, a tribute to vintage vocal synthesis, Bowed String, a bow and string simulator, and Harmonic Resonator, a multi-layer exciter feeding 6 tunable resonators; new effects including Opal, a physically-modeled optical compressor, Ladder, a classic East Coast filter, Dispersor, a unique transient shaper, and Harmonic Resonator, a tunable resonator bank; new performance scripts including Node Arp, Motion Grid, and Snowflakes; new workflow features including Workspaces, allowing you to effortlessly move between customized UI arrangements, MIDI Out, enabling control over external software and hardware instruments and effects with Falcon's rich library of scripts and sequencers, improved MPE support, Program Templates, helping users jump-start the creative process with numerous starting points, a new Startup Screen that helps you quickly launch recent projects and program templates, and a completely refactored factory library of 1500+ presets with improved macros and all-new UIs.
Falcon 3 is a free update to all existing users and SonicPass subscribers, available immediately through the UVI Portal desktop app.
In addition, UVI have released 2 new Falcon expansions; Modular Noise, and Organic Pads. Modular Noise delivers 100 presets created from complex noise samples created on a hardware eurorack system, featuring charactered, hardware-inspired Bass, Arps, Sequences, Drums and more. Organic Pads extends the 'Organic' expansion series with 100 presets exploring evolving, sustained sounds in categories including Light, Dark, Mystical, and Nature, each featuring performable XY control over 4 discrete sources (sample, synthesis, noise, and texture).
A spokesperson told us, "Falcon represents the pinnacle of hybrid instrument design, with unlimited use and layering of oscillators, effects, modulators, and event processors. 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 provides simultaneous authorization on up to 3 computers or iLok keys."
