The XILS 4 closely emulates a never released prototype, the EMS VCS4, based on two integrated, interlinked and interacting VCS3 ( Synthi ) cores.

Version 1.5 released + Intro Price 2018 offer (45%off)
99€ instead of 179€

Version 1.5.0 (November 2018) :
  • New Preset Manager.
    Natural sounding reverb added.
    Modular FX chain & routing added.
    Second independant Keyboard added.
    Balance LEFT/RIGHT SYNTHS engines added.
    Numerous small fixes and enhancements
    Free for all Xils 4 owners


With plethora of extras. Taking Modular Synthesis to another level.

Like the 2nd huge Pin Matrix, and its numerous additional modules : Envelopes, LFOs, S&H, Voltage Processor, Pitch Tracker, Transient etc. Or the recreation of the unique, powerfull 256 analog Polysequencer, intimately tied to the synthesis engines. Add to that the analog Chorus ( 3 modes ) Delay and Phaser, the Spring Reverb, and the picture emerges.

In the XILS 4, you can connect everything with everything, and you get more than 1140 possible different connexions per patch. At Audio Rate.

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

Are the pins just on/off like on the original or are they virtually feature expanded to potentiometers ?

Expanded to potentiometers.

You can specify both the intensity AND the polarity of the modulations inside the Pins Matrixes themselves ( And as a reminder, you can zoom in any Matrix with the MouseWheel, legacy of the Xils 3 V2.0 )

'intricated' = integrated?

Oops. Hmmm, I'm not sure *integrated* is the right word, but you'll tell me : more like "interlocked" "interlink with" Basically the idea is that the two VCS3 engines are, or can be, tied, communicating with each other.

So do you think *integrated* is the right wrod for that Stephen ?

Well I don't think 'intricated' is a word - the interacting part you have covered already so integrated would probably be a reasonable substitute. Maybe the phrase should be 'integrated, interlinked and interacting' - you get bonus points for the alliteration :)

Will this be able to import XILS3 patches - maybe into each core so you can layer them or (even better) morph between them?

It's not a word in English - although U.S. President Bush used it (incorrectly) several times. However, I believe the word, and idea behind it, is more closely related to: "InStricated" - Although it's probably fine as it is now...

Instricated? Never heard that used in English before. Do you have a definition?

Ah, says obsolete though, but entangled is a nice word
