patchpool has announced the release of Falcon Singles - Ambient Piano for UVI Falcon, 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.
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.
