Falcon includes 20 oscillators covering a wide range of modern synthesis methods from basic sample playback to more advanced generators like Pluck, Wavetable and IRCAM Multi Granular.
One of Falcon's greatest strengths is its ability to freely layer oscillators to create elaborate hybrid instruments that capitalize on the unique features of both sample-based and algorithmic sound creation. There are no preset limits on the quantity or type of oscillators you can use, you're limited only by your computers processing power and imagination.

UVI Falcon | Workflow
Falcon is built to be an efficient, versatile and powerful hybrid instrument. Its user interface is presented in a single and flexible window that is resizable to fit any screen size.
Editing is primarily done through the MAIN viewport, which is divided into 3 columns that facilitate navigation, editing and file/preset browsing.


The central columns EDIT tab provides a comprehensive visual representation of your entire instrument split into varying levels of detail from the Program (instrument) level all the way down to the keygroup (note) level. A Layer level resides between the two that lets you easily organize and modify selections of keygroups. Quickly focus your view with global and level-specific filters, collapse sections as needed and easily tab through modules for editing.


For a more data-driven approach the TREE and LIST tabs provide a perfect hierarchical view of your project, allowing for surgical editing of individual components or broad stroke editing of large selections.
UVI Falcon | TREE and LIST


Nearly every parameter in your instrument can be assigned to a macro. Macros live in a dedicated tab and can be freely arranged with an interactive graphical editor. Quickly create custom UIs for your instruments that suit your needs without any scripting knowledge. Macros can target as many parameters within your instrument as you like, allowing for the creation of powerful and unique controls.
