Metal Percussion is a collection of unusual percussive sounds build upon samples of found metal objects and rare instruments. Besides patches with multi-sampled instruments this library combines many of Falcon's synthesis methods in order to create interesting and unconventional electronic sounds, soundscapes, drones, pads, sequencer patches and granular textures often using the new oscillators and effects introduced in Falcon 3.0.

Up to 20+ Macros and switches are assigned in each patch, many also use the modulation wheel, providing detailed control over volume envelopes, filtering, amplitude- and pitch modulations, time-stretching, granular parameters, EQ-ing, dynamics, stereo animation 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.

Sampled instruments:
  • Barrel Drums.
    200 liter oil barrel, multi-sampled hits at different spots of the barrel, played with all kinds of sticks, mallets and other things, also hitting a cymbal lying on top of the barrel - some electronic derivatives and 2 synced loops are also available.
    *Kitchen Percussion.
    Multi-sampled kitchen objects sampled with up to 8x round robin and 7 velocity layers: two cooking pots (one of them filled with water) played with various sticks, spoons and mallets, a milk foamer, a salad spinner, cutlery and a knife sharpener.
    * Container Drums.
    Various waste, recycling, storage and charity containers of different sizes and materials, mostly multi-sampled with round robin, many of the samples are pre-processed.
    *Water Pan, Spring Drum, Thunder Sheet - multisampled with up to 6 velocity layers and 8x round robin, some electronic derivatives and tempo-synced loops.
    * Various found metal objects and a large Tamtam (ø 150 cm), also sampled in the field with a field recorder.
    * Electronic derivatives of the above samples and wave-tables extracted from them.
About 30% of the samples and all wave-tables were produced for this library, all other samples were borrowed from my sound library Colliding Worlds for Groove Agent - distributed exclusively by Steinberg.

Frame Drums & Friends is a unique percussion library containing multi-sampled frame-drums, ocean drums and a special gong drum from Pakistan sampled especially for this collection. Besides a broad array of percussive and textural drum sounds with different articulations, this collection also contains bass sounds, soundscapes, tempo-synced loops in various time signatures, experimental noises, drones and synth patches derived from re-synthesized and wave-tabled drum samples. Quite a few patches also layer frame-drum samples or their derivatives with Falcon's internal synth and granular oscillators. Some gong samples and field recordings of ocean waves complete this collection.

Up to 20+ Macros and switches are assigned in each patch, many also use the modulation wheel and sometimes aftertouch, providing detailed control over volume envelopes, filtering, amplitude- and pitch modulations, time-stretching, granular parameters, EQ-ing, dynamics, stereo animation 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 samples were produced for this library, the other half was borrowed from my sound library Colliding Worlds for Groove Agent - distributed exclusively by Steinberg - and other patchpool libraries.

Crotales are rare orchestral percussion instruments not often used in classical music, the instrument sampled for this library ranging from C5 – C7 (C3 – C5 in classical terms). Tuned chromatically its distinct and very bright bell-like sound cuts through even at low velocities. For this soundset the instrument was multi-sampled with 2 articulations, bowed (violin bow) and beaten (special mallets with a metallic tip). There are also tempo-synced loops, improvised textures and tremolos, these samples were then used as a starting point for producing tonal soundscapes, musical beds and more experimental sound textures, often involving Falcon’s multi-granular oscillator and combining it with FM, pluck, wave-table and analog synth oscillators.

Up to 20+ Macros and switches are installed in each patch, some 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.

Falcon Scapes Vol3 focusses on long evolving soundscapes and drones, musical beds, wavetable-based pads, sound effects and other electronic sounds. Many of the soundscape samples are several minutes long, often with a distinct tonality, some explore the more experimental, darker side of things. Often granular textures and sample maps are layered with Falcon's internal sound generators creating dense and fascinating sounds usable for a wide variety of genres. Quite a few patches make use of the new features introduced in Falcon version 1.5 (wavetable FM and frequency shifter FX).

Many of these presets are running in split mode and/or layer sound textures via key-switches. Up to 25+ Macros and switches plus the modulation wheel are assigned in each patch, many also use aftertouch, providing detailed control over volume envelopes, filtering, amplitude and pitch modulations, EQ-ing, dynamics, stereo animation, effects and more. Often complex tempo-synced modulation assignments are programmed so that these patches can provide interesting rhythmical animations. All patches use some sort of background image in the UI, split patches have colored key-zones in the Falcon keyboard for easier navigation.

Falcon Singles - HANG

Multi-sampled HANG percussion, deeply sampled with plenty of articulations, textures and electronic derivatives. The nine pitches of the Hang were sampled at 5 velocity layers and 6x round robin, two articulations were sampled (mallet/hand), also the backside of the Hang was captured, producing some remarkable sub-bass tones. Dynamic tremolos for each pitch (hand/fingers/mallet) were also recorded, dozens of little rubber balls were inserted into the instrument creating sublime pentatonic textures, wavetables were extracted from Hang samples, textural Hang sounds were re-synthesized and processed with a plethora of sonic tools to compose a unique collection of mellow, beautiful, mysterious, haunting and new-age sounds. The original tuning of the Hang was preserved in many patches, in quite a few presets there is a Macro installed which will tune the samples to the traditional tempered tuning.

Up to 25 Macros and switches are assigned in each patch, most presets make use of the modulation wheel, many patches also use aftertouch and modulation via velocity, providing detailed control over volume envelopes, filtering, amplitude- and pitch modulations, dynamics, EQ, stereo animation and more.

Multi-sampled acoustic steel string guitar played with an e-bow, a much expanded and falconized version of the acoustic guitar sounds in Sonic Cinema for HALion 5. New samples were added, wavetables extracted and patched, electronic derivates and soundscapes were produced and some processed e-bowed mandolin sounds were created to compose a unique collection of sounds.

Many patches use the multi-granular engine, then there are patches using multi-samples over the entire instrument range, several animated wavetable pads/drones and sounds using the samples to excite the pluck oscillator are also included. Expressively playable instruments create sizzling timbres with rich harmonics that sometimes remind of indian instruments like the sitar and santoor, some patches sound big and cinematic, others produce mellow and embracing tones.

Up to 20+ Macros and switches plus the modulation wheel are assigned in each patch, many presets also use aftertouch, providing detailed control over volume envelopes, filtering, amplitude- and pitch modulations, EQ-ing, dynamics, stereo animation, granular parameters and more.

Falcon Singles - Celtic Harp

Multi-sampled Celtic harp, originally sampled for my MachFive 3-library Scattered Entity, falconized, expanded, improved and re-worked for Falcon in January 2016, also making use of the new synthesis forms introduced in Falcon like the multi-granular engine, the wavetable and physical modeling synths and adding many more Macro controls. Two patches have scripted interfaces, the scripting was executed by Iain Morland.

This library provides various Celtic harp articulations like single accents with 3 velocity layers - 4x round robin, up/down glissandos in various modes (major/minor harmonic/minor melodic/dorian), bisbigliandos (tremolos) and plenty of electronic derivatives, re-synthesized harp sounds and two bell samples. So besides the acoustic harp patches you will find some beautiful and mysterious soundscapes, warm pads, edgy plucks, a grungy bass and a groovy sequencer sound.

Up to 20+ Macros and switches plus the modulation wheel are assigned in each patch, many also use aftertouch, providing detailed control over volume envelopes, filtering, amplitude- and pitch modulations, EQ-ing, dynamics, stereo animation, granular parameters 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.

You can view/download the PDF for this library with more details, the licence agreement, and the patchlist including descriptions and playing tips here.

2nd release:

Here comes the release info for the second single from Falcon Singles, the Stick Cello, originally sampled for my Alchemy 2 library Resurrection plus some new samples produced for this release:


Image

Falcon Singles - Stick Cello

Multi-sampled stick cello, originally sampled for my Alchemy library Resurrection for Alchemy 2, some new electronic samples derived from the cello were added for this Falcon release. The single accents were sampled on 10 pitches across the entire cello range at 5 velocity layers - 3x round robin, the tremolos were sampled at 3 pitches on open strings (A1/A2/A3), playing the highest notes on a violin. Two tonal, granular soundscapes, a tremolo patch with time-stretching and a model synth are also included in this collection.

Up to 20 Macros and switches plus the modulation wheel are assigned in each patch, some also use aftertouch, providing detailed control over volume envelopes, filtering, amplitude- and pitch modulations, EQ-ing, dynamics, stereo animation and more. All patches use background images in the UI.

All acoustic samples in this library were recorded with 3 top notch microphones (Neumann) in L-C-R in 48 Khz/24 Bit, the microphone signals of all acoustic samples were phase-aligned which improves the stereo picture, enhances the transparency of the sound and makes for snappier transients.

You can view/download the PDF for this library with more details, the licence agreement, and the patchlist including descriptions and playing tips here.

Specs:
  • *6 patches combining sampling, granular synthesis and physical modeling.
    *374.5 MB of samples (171 wavs/stereo/48 Khz/24 Bit/phase-aligned), 2 background images 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: 377.5 MB
    *Price (paypal): € 15 EUR (50% off for Resurrection license holders = € 7.50 EUR)

I think so, especially if you're looking for something specific which might be included in a big library, or a library for a different instrument/sampler, and I have so much stuff to recycle from the recent years, and so many ideas for new singles - could be a winner...

Here comes the demo for the next single-library, which is Stick Cello. This demo uses a granular soundscape, the main instrument is a multi-sampled stick cello (cello played with a drumstick), more details over the weekend.

Here is a first demo for the next Falcon Single-library, the Celtic harp, an updated, expanded, revisited, much improved excerpt from Scattered Entity Vol. 1 for Falcon/MachFive. This will be a free update for all license holders of Scattered Entity. I also made some new samples and patches with processed and re-synthesized harp samples and some wavetable and physical modeling sounds making use of the new synthesis forms available in Falcon.

EDIT (a few hours later):
and here comes a more urban groove thing featuring 3 patches from Celtic Harp, all these sounds are made with/derived from harp samples/sounds - 100% Falcon:

Three patches in a little 6/8-vamp, one being a harp synth layering the multisampled harp with an FM synth, one wavetable synth using a wavetable extracted from a harp accent (with a key-switch for selecting a second wavetable), and a harp bell patch layering a granular harp with a ship bell.

Here comes a first improvised demo for the next Falcon Singles-library, Bass Flute, this is a patch using re-synthesized bass flute samples (additive re-synthesis), layering them with a wavetable pad using a flute wavetable and some glass chimes run through tuned combfilters:

A video demonstrating/improvising with the patch Overtone Sculpture Split from Falcon Singles - Bass Flute.

Patch description:

Upper register: overtone texture performed on a bass flute, layering the dry and a processed/re-synthesized version, both sounds running in granular mode have a dedicated volume control. Controls for grain animation (via random LFO) and grain size are available, tempo-synced amplitude modulation can be dialed in.

Lower register: drone scape derived from the dry overtone texture, audio-morphed with a vocal sound.
A velocity-sensitive, tempo-synced filter envelope can be dialed in , sample start control via velocity is assigned to a Macro, tempo-synced amplitude modulation can be dialed in.

There are two sweeping filter signals and the dry signal which can be blended with the 3 assigned Macros.

MW detunes the grains in the upper register and adds flanger FX to the bass drone.

20 Macros and a reverb-freeze switch are installed.
