Hi,

For those with in-depth experience of the Xils 3 & LE, are the differences big... as reflected in the price difference?

I have listened to some Youtube Videos and the LE seems quite capable?

Thanks

The price difference is substantial (3 x as much), the functionalilty increment not nearly so much.

I'm wondering if after a while I'd think... ohh! it hasn't got one of those... and I need that :?

i've had the LE version for a while, haven't used the full version, but i never felt like it was crippled in any way. i feel like the full version just has more expanded modulation, maybe, and is the same synth doubled up from the looks of it...a big incentive for the LE version, though, is its lack of iLok.

There's demos for both that you can stack against each other, and if you want a decent test of the LE, you can have my copy for free. i'm not into the emulation thing anymore and the LE is so cheap there's not much sense charging for it.

* 2 additional enveloppes (trapez, switchable to ADSR), one detailed LFO, 800 possible connexions per patch vs 'only' 400 for the LE iirc, various features, more factory presets & more add-on soundsets (if you're interested in that), and -rather soon- NKS compatibilty and new Xils preset manager, and a bit more than I can't reveal here.

Then, the LE, for it's price is really an incredible and complete synth. Xils 3 simply has more. And Xils 4, well, even more. Also, there's an upgrade path from LE to full version, so ....

A few Xils 3 v2 presets :

£100 for two envelopes and an LFO. Could be a bargain for Eurorack, not so much for software.

Can you load the LE patches into Xils 3 & 4?
