For me Falcon is working great. I agree that it's worrying to spend this much on something that may not work, although I've not personally heard of anyone having issues. UVI support have been faultless on the 2 times I have needed them (an expired voucher and user error) and will follow up ensuring your issue is resolved.

Here also looking for a demo, since I'm not sure if my computer CPU can handle Falcon.

That would be the last issue to think about, regarding Falcon.

Ableton Live, empty session, idle CPU 3% (laptop, quad core i7), Memory in use 2.11 GB

8x Falcons with one saw: CPU remains at 3% idle, 4% when playing a note. Live Memory with 8x Falcon: 2.13 GB
8x Avenger with one saw: CPU stays at 7% when idle and 8% when playing a note. Live Memory with 8x Avenger: 3.33 GB

I can run an entire project of 40+ Falcons (as sample player, loop player, synthesis). 32 empty Avengers bump memory use to 6 GB (32 empty Falcons have almost zero impact on memory use and idle CPU) and 22% CPU usage when idle.

Of course a single Falcon session can grow to the equivalent of dozens of Avengers (in Falcon nothing is really limited in terms of OSCS, modulations, layers) and that will seriously impact the CPU usage BUT using Falcon in a discerning manner can get you very far. Also, now many fx (Filters, distortion) can be oversampled and they will also consume CPU.

Granted, Falcon have it's share of bugs (I found them because I use it intensively, other users swear that they had not a single issue with Falcon), the UVI team released a couple of fixes in the recent weeks but that's also true for Avenger so no biggie here.
