XILS 3

The XILS 3 V2.0 not only emulates the Synthi (VCS 3) modular synthesizer, it also adds an emulation of the 256 Analog Sequencer, the natural companion of the VCS 3.

Is that all? No, of course, we added a SECOND Matrix, with 2 additional envelopes, one LFO, a detailed Sample and Hold module, and a Voltage processor...

And some input modules: Gate, Transient, Envelope Follower and Pitch Tracker to transform the XILS 3 into an advanced Effect Processor.

This means hundreds of additional connections. Add to the pile the analog chorus with its three modes, the analog delay and the phaser... the picture emerges.

In the XILS 3, you can connect everything with everything, and you get more than 800 possible different connections per patch ('Only' 583 simultaneous connections possible).

Did we say at Audio Rate?

An endless source of inspiration for those who want to go deep into the heart of Analog Modular Synthesis.

It's nearly impossible to summarize what the XILS 3 can do, but, in short, here's the list of the main modules:

  • 6 Oscillators grouped in 3 pairs, with WaveShaping (on sine wave, saw, triangle and square).
  • 1 Noise Oscillator (With Noise colour).
  • 1 Analog Filter, Non Linear and zero delay Behaviours, with 3 Modes (12/18/24 dB LowPass).
  • 3 Trapezoidal Envelope Generators, Looping EG in the time of analog (Switchable to ADSR ).
  • 2 Polyphonic LFOs (including 1 Oscillator acting as LFO at audiorate)
    Polyphonic Ring Modulator.
  • 2 independent outputs feeding the Stereo Bus, each with one analog LP/HP filter.
  • Programmable Joystick Vector Controller (up to 32+32 modulation targets).
  • Polyphonic Sequencer with 3 independent lines, Slew rates, 3 recording modes.
  • Sequencer can behave as modulation source.
  • Pitch Tracker, Envelope Follower, Transient, Gate, Sample & Hold Modules.
  • Chorus, Delay, Spring Reverb.
  • 6 Play modes (including Unison 2/4/6), Polyphonic and mono Portamento/Glissando/Legato, 2 different Keyboard Scaling, Polyphonic Aftertouch and VCA handling.
  • Hundreds of presets made by worldwide famous Sound Designers.
  • Preset Database Engine (Find the right patch in a flash, create your own tags).
  • Comprehensive manual with a getting started and tutorial sections.
  • Instrument or Effect plug-in.

NOTE: XILS 3 is copy-protected by either of the two available dongles: eLicenser or iLok. You choose the protection you want when you purchase the plug-in.

eLicenser or iLok............ I'll pass.

Idem. It's a shame because all the XILS labs are excellent products. But that kind of copy protection is a total no-go. And also eLicenser as well as iLok become totally obsolete, we now see many companies who abandon that kind of protection which is a real intrusion in the machines. XILS 3 would have probably much more users with a less intrusive method of protection.

Thanks for your interest, Pusha and BlackWinny.

Xils 3 LE, the lite version, is only serial protected, and its still a complete modular synthesizer, and can be used as a powerfull effect as well. Its price is more than affordable ( less than 30 € )

Xils-Lab flagship synthesizer Oxium is also only protected by a serial, as the PolyKB player, and all Xils analog effects. Then some Xils-Lab synths need a dongle, thats true. We would prefer not to have to do so, but, at least for Xils synths, the protection is efficient. So this also protects your investment, but we can understand that some people do not wish to use dongles.
