Would be cool if UVI released a separate pack of sequencers for Falcon, esp when they add MIDI out ;)

My wavetable osc looks like that the picture of the waveform does not fit the frame? Should it look like that? Like zoomed in.

Please grab Falcon 2.5.2. This should fix your issue.

My main issues with MIDI out was that
1. It doesn't work in all DAW/plugin format
2. What to output when you can have arp and stuff at any level.

Maybe I will do a dedicated module like MIDI record that explicitly tell what to output so you can place it in the chain where it make sense.

MIDI record that you can drag and drop into the host would be great. For example, Maschine doesn’t allow midi out from plugins. NKS would be great too :D

This is more possible than ever since we have moved to juce own wrapper which already supports VST3.
Still, in order to avoid another plugin format to support, I would prefer being able to retire VST2 before releasing VST3.
Plus VST3 MIDI CC support is still not the best and requires lots of fake parameter to be exported..
See JUCE_VST3_EMULATE_MIDI_CC_WITH_PARAMETERS

What would VST3 brings compare to VST2 for Falcon ?

I would vote for not retiring VST2 in order to move to VST3.

I still like using Falcon in NI Kore, which is VST2 only...

Just more developers are moving away from VST2 on Mac so I am tending to prefer the VST3 version over VST2 in mosts that support that (eg Bitwig).

At least Kore still works for you, too many incompatible VSTs here. I recall NI reps stating that Maschine would be a replacement for Kore, yeah about as much as Ableton Link is a replacement for Rewire. :(

Which ones are problematic for you? I haven't had any issues with any of 400 plugins that I have, curiously...

Now it is possible to run standalone Falcon in Ubuntu Budgie 20.04 via Wine 6.0 RC6
i need to do more testing but everything seems to be working. :D
VSTi version also works if you use LinVST 3.5.

I was going to try but I was doubtful because of iLock. Does it work fine over Wine?
