Patchpool has released another sound library in their Falcon Singles-series for UVI Falcon: Frame Drums & Friends, 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 Patchpool's Colliding Worlds sound library for Groove Agent - distributed exclusively by Steinberg - and other patchpool libraries.
