Falcon Singles - Ambient Piano
An ambient take on the piano instrument using samples played on various grand and standup pianos, also inside the instrument, plucking and treating the strings with various tools and playing flageolets and muted sounds. Ethereal piano clouds and tonal soundscapes meet vibrant pads and spectral sounds, warm embracing tones clash with bizarre sound effects and

Many patches use the multi-granular engine, sometimes layered with wave-table sounds and analog or additive synth tones. Samples are also used to excite the physical modeled pluck oscillator, effect modules introduced in Falcon 2.0 are often involved.

Up to 20+ Macros and switches are assigned in each patch, many presets also use the modulation wheel and aftertouch, providing detailed control over volume envelopes, filtering, amplitude- and pitch modulations, EQ-ing, dynamics, stereo animation, granular parameters and more. All patches use a background image in the UI, split patches have colored key-zones in the Falcon keyboard for easier navigation.

About 50% of the sample content was borrowed from other patchpool libraries, the other half was produced especially produced for Ambient Piano.

Specifications:
  • *33 patches including some variations.
    *853.1 MB of samples, 81 wavs - up to 2+ min long (stereo/48 Khz/24 Bit), 6 wavetables, 1 impulse response and 1 background image for the UI.
    *The content is not encrypted, so you can use the samples and wavetables in other samplers and synths or directly in your DAW.
    *Delivery: download
    *Library size in total: 862.5 MB (808.2 download)
    *Price: € 23 EUR

Falcon's granular engine sounds awesome!! It's a bit heavy on CPU resources, but totally worth it. The effects are also just as professional-sounding, especially the reverb which is spacious and incredibly lush. It really stands out in Simon's recent example. Hey Simon, do you have an approximate ETA for your Singing Bowls library for Falcon?

It does sound awesome, but in the patches used in that demo it's all regular sampling, no granular engine involved but there will be plenty of granular patches of course. I'll announce it within the next few days and probably do a pre-release at a discounted price, sort of an intro phase until the library is ready.

Singing Bowls & Friends: pre-order / pre-release is up:

Image

Multi-sampled singing bowls of various sizes, crystal, ceramic and glass bowls, meditative/cinematic soundscapes and synthesizer patches derived from processed and wave-tabled bowl sounds.

At the core of this library there are 7 multi-sampled singing bowls, beaten, rubbed and bowed with a cello bow. In addition there is a multi-sampled crystal bowl and glass and ceramic bowls played with various beaters. Up to 2 minute long samples with electronically processed bowl sounds and some wavetables derived from singing bowls complete the collection.

Up to 20+ Macros and switches plus the modulation wheel are assigned in each patch, many patches also use aftertouch, providing detailed and creative control over volume envelopes, filtering, amplitude- and pitch modulations, dynamics, stereo animation, layer leveling and more. All patches use some sort of background image in the UI, split patches have colored key-zones in the Falcon keyboard for easier navigation.

About 50% of the sample content was borrowed from my sound library Colliding Worlds for Groove Agent (distributed exclusively by Steinberg) and other patchpool libraries, the other half was produced especially produced for Singing Bowls & Friends.

To shorten the waiting time until its final release all customers will receive a pre-release version currently containing 22 patches, 680+ MB of samples and 4 wave-tables.
