Now that we have one instrument loaded and edited to our liking, let’s load some additional sounds.
- In the Parts List, use the + button to add a few more parts.
- Let’s load a few more sounds from the Falcon Factory soundbank, such as the Pads > String Analog instrument and Rhythmic > Dr Dubstep 140BPM, or choose a slice drum loop file from other UVI soundbanks or from your own library and start building a multi-timbral multi.
- To stack parts 1 and 2, change the MIDI Input Channel on parts 1 and 2 to A1. Play a few notes from your MIDI controller — you should now hear both parts trigger at the same time.
- Now let’s adjust the parts relative to each other: reduce the Volume on part 2 to -12 dB, and transpose part 2 by setting Octave (Oct) to -1.
- On part 3, just press any note to play the rhythm. If you load your own drum loop, press Play on Falcon’s toolbar and you will hear the drum loop auto-play, synced to Falcon’s tempo. Edit Falcon’s tempo, and the rhythm automatically stays in sync.
- Now with our multi taking shape, let’s save it. From the Main Menu in the toolbar, choose Save Multi As.
All of the details about this instance of Falcon are saved in the multi, and can be recalled with this single file.
