load the individual kitpieces into separate Parts
load the individual kitpieces into different instances of Falcon in the DAW
load the individual kitpieces into separate Layers in the same Part
To create a basic analog synth patch from scratch, you'd want to...
drag in an oscillator and select the "auto-program" option in the Edit pane
drag in an oscillator and add Modulators and Effects only at the Program level
drag in an oscillator, tweak the Amp Envelope, and add a LPF at the Keygroup level
drag in an oscillator and add EQ, comp, & short delay at the Layer level
To create a chain of multiple effects
load the same effect into multiple levels
use Multi-FX or the Effect Rack
duplicate the same Part with different effects in each copy
set the Polyphony to > 1
In the right Sidebar Browser you can browse and load
only component presets (oscillators, effects, mods, etc)
only Program files
only full Multis
Multis, Programs, and component presets (oscillators, effects, mods, etc)
To see where various Modulators are assigned in a patch, you can...
check the Factory Preset settings chart in the manual
check the Factory Preset settings chart in the Help panel
enable the Modulation option in the Tree view
go to the "Used Modulators" list in the Browser
To assign a Modulator to a specific control, you can...
use the Modulation Matrix panel in the Toolbar
choose from a list of preset modulation routings accessed from the Info pane
use the Modulation Matrix panel in the Performance pane
right-click on the control and choose the modulator
can both arpeggiate held chords and create a sequence form a single held note
only functions when more than one note is played simultaneously
can only be implemented at the Keygroup level
only uses preset patterns--you can't create your own sequences
When dragging multiple samples from the Browser into the Mapping Editor...
they will always be mapped starting at the lowest key on the keyboard
they will always be mapped centered around Middle C
holding Option/Alt calls up a dialog with auto-mapping options
they must be dragged in one-by-one
To set up the keyboard's Modwheel (CC1) to control the strength of a vibrato effect, you can...
assign CC1 directly to Pitch in the Keygroup level
