Xils-lab has released Synthax A & B, two new sound banks for their Synthix synth.
Synthax A and Synthax B combine to offer almost 300 fresh new patches, ranging from otherworldly electro to pure vintage and ‘oldskool’ flavourings, with much in-between.
Synthax A (€21) comprises 163 sounds programmed by leading sound designers Simon Ball (Soundsdivine); Adam Borsetti; Cliff Douse; Kelvin Ford; Kire; Lotuzia; Peter Schelfhout; Tzadi; Daniel Stawcyzk; Vivolator; Ingo Weidner; and (original Synthex programmer) Paul Wiffen, who is primarily responsible for authentically recreating some classic Synthex patches; all are broken down into the following categories for easy access: Arp (22); Bass (28); FX (14); Keys (18); Leads (39); Percussion (19); Sequences (10); and Synths (45).
Synthax B (€19) delivers another 134 patches from those same sound designers, and also includes recreations of yet more classic Synthex sounds; again, all are conveniently categorised: Bells, Brass, Strings, and Woodwinds (29); Keys, Organs, and Keytars (33); Pads (46); Plucks and Splits (8); and FX (16).
