Wavetable Downloads

Falcon can't create Wavetables by itself, but there are many sites offering Wavetable downloads.
I just listed these four because they don't require email address, membership, password, bank account details, etc.

Oberheim8000

105 Wavetables: use the 32 bit / 256 tables download.
There are also many Falcon Programs for download here.

Harmor Squelch Tables

35 Wavetable. Google Drive upload

Bass Tables

30 Bass Wavetables; Mediafire upload

Bass Tables Vol.2

43 Bass Wavetables. Mediafire upload

Wave Editors

Falcon's built-in wave editor is useful for quick start and endpoint editing, maybe even for creating unchallenging loops.
If crossfades or exact sample cuts are required, better use qualified wave editors.
Besides professional editors like Wavelab or Sound Forge, there are other (free) editors which perform quite good - in some regards even better than their expensive equivalents.

Endless WAV

Perfect tool to find smooth loops and crossfades fast and easily. Basic processing options like Normalize and DC Filter. No installation required.

Wavosaur

Features everything else (besides loops and crossfades), also Batch processing. No installation required.

Let's take a in-depth look at UVI Falcon!

Some general thoughts about Falcon and its structure, then examining some library presets. As the guy stated at the beginning, 'not really a tutorial but an overview'. Apparently he used Falcon only a few times before making this one-hour video.
