Falcon includes 15 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.
An 8-voice implementation of the Analog oscillator designed to facilitate the rapid layering. Each voice utilizes the same basic engine found in the Analog oscillator, substituting the Unison and Sync sections for Pan and Gain to facilitate spatial and level mixing and a pitch section for subtle to extreme voice detuning.
Designed for the creation of rhythmic and percussive sounds, DRUM utilizes both a pitched oscillator and noise generator. Both pitched and noise oscillators sport discrete AD amplitude envelopes with the former providing pitch modulation. EQ and distortion are available in the master section for broad shape control.
A physically inspired string synthesis module, Pluck utilizes both algorithmic and sample-based excitations to create rich harmonic sounds with natural decay. Choose from a selection of factory impulses or load your own samples, modulate sample start time and tune, adjust the initial excitation, coupling of multiple strings, and finally contribution of sample, synth and noise generators.
A fully-featured wavetable oscillator provides multiple phase distortion modes and a robust unison section with wave and stereo spread across up to 8 voices. Modulate the Wave Index to sweep through wavetables which can be chosen from a large selection of factory content. Wavetable can also import a variety of user files including WAV files (single or sequential), user tables or graphic image files which are converted pixel-rows to cycles, brightness to amplitude.
At the heart of Falcon’s sample oscillators is a full-fledged sample editor allowing you to quickly make changes to your samples without moving to an external application. Crop, normalize, silence, reverse, add fades, or even bounce Falcon’s effects to your sample in place. Additionally, you can select multiple files and batch them all at once.
A no-frills workhorse sample oscillator, ideal for basic soundboards and traditional sample playback. The Sample display can be interactively resized and provides editing functions such as crop, normalize, silence, reverse and fade in/out along with the ability to apply any of Falcon's effects in-place. Due to Falcon’s ability to efficiently stream samples from disk you can manage tens of thousands of samples at once without a massive RAM footprint.
Ideal for rhythmic and percussive material, the Slice oscillator can divide samples into discrete keygroups to be resequenced. Adjust transient sensitivity manually or use embedded markers like those found in REX files. Drag-and-drop export of sliced file maps in a variety of ways including as a Falcon patch, discrete WAV files, or MIDI sequence.
A realtime, low-CPU pitch-shifting sample oscillator. Stretch can adjust pitch up to ±2 octaves while maintaining sample duration. Freely adjust sample start time, playback mode and tempo analysis. Use the Solo Mode button to switch between discrete monophonic and polyphonic pitch-shifting algorithms.
Similar to the Stretch oscillator, but implementing IRCAM's high-quality phase vocoder for time-stretching and pitch-shifting with transient and envelope preservation. Requires more processing power than the standard pitch-shifting algorithms used in other oscillators but with a significant quality improvement.
Falcon includes over 80 high-quality effects, categorized for easy navigation: Delays, Reverbs, Modulation, Filters, Equalizers, Amps and Stereo, Drive and Distortions, Dynamics, Analysis and more. With effects suited for nearly every need from creative mangling to precise sound sculpting, mixing and analysis, Falcon provides a tremendous sound design facility.
Effects within Falcon can be instanced as sends on effect busses, at the program, layer or note level and allow for extensive control of your signal and an unrestricted approach to sound and instrument design. Additionally, effects can be racked in an EffectRack for parallel and multi-band processing, or as a central, reusable multi-effect with macro-driven controls.

Falcon's UI is presented in a single, flexible window that can comfortably operate on both small portable screens and massive desktop displays. A full-screen view is also available that optimizes editing of complex waveforms and detailed envelopes.
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.
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.
