Sonic fun with Falcon
As a producer renowned for his crazy sound design, we’re keen to find out Paul’s weapon of choice for sound generation and manipulation. “UVI Falcon is my starting point once I have a drum track going. I’ll use it for everything. I open Falcon, browse to the folder I created earlier, then draw a [MIDI] note in and flick through the sounds and mess around with them to get a vibe going. I’ll add a bunch of filters with an LFO – funky things that fit in place and do interesting stuff groove-wise. Then I’ll create another instance and start layering things up.
“Then interchanging the samples on the fly – you’ll hit a sound that sounds wicked. I like discovering ‘happy accidents’ while I’m working. And I use Falcon’s different sampler types – stretching, slicing, scrub, granular – I’ll keep flicking through until something jumps out and says ‘finish me!”
When it comes to mangling sounds, InsideInfo’s synth/sampler of choice is UVI Falcon
