Sonic fun with Fal­con

Computer Music - - Make Music Now -

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
