XILS-lab releases XILS 3 EMS VCS3 Emulation v2.0

XILS-lab has announced availability of XILS 3 V2.0 — an updated version of its software emulation of the late-Sixties-vintage EMS VCS3 portable analogue synthesizer, scaled up to also emulate EMS' early-Seventies-vintage Synthi Sequencer 256.

Featuring an all-new ergonomically-enhanced GUI, users can now zoom in on all matrices, for example, while continuous modulation amount is now possible within the pin matrix itself — with advanced 'swivelling' pins providing more than eye candy.

Polyphonic sequencer workflow is radically improved in the Sequencer 256 module, inspired by EMS' Synthi Sequencer 256 namesake. This three-layer sequencer with analogue-to-digital and digital-to-analogue converters to enable digital processing of control voltages to drive multiple analogue synthesizers or multiple parameters with storage of up to 256 'events' was well ahead of its time when released in 1971. Here in the virtual world, XILS-lab has transported it to the present day with three independent layers, slew rates, and recording modes, together with added abilities like sequencer layers acting as modulation sources in a dedicated SEQ Matrix.

Adding a second matrix with two additional envelopes, an LFO, comprehensive Sample And Hold module, and Voltage Processor, plus several new input modules — including Gate, Envelope Follower, and Pitch Tracker — means that there are hundreds of additional connections available. There are over 800 different connections per patch with 'only' 583 simultaneous connections to boot. Add to that an 18dB filter emulation alongside a three-mode analogue chorus, delay, and phaser, plus much more besides. 150 new presets and an improved (retagged) factory bank makes for a more meaningful starting point for your own modular journeying.

Pricing & Availability

XILS 3 V2.0 is available to purchase as an eLicenser or iLok copy-protected virtual instrument and effects plug-in for an introductory discounted price of €120.00 (rising to €149.00 on May 1, 2014) from the XILS-lab web store (Note that this time-limited offer also includes the Xilistics sound bank for XILS 3 with 160-plus presets worth €25.00, equalling an overall saving of €54.00).

XILS 3 V2.0 can be directly downloaded as a 32- and 64-bit-compatible virtual instrument and effects plug-in for Mac (AAX, AU, RTAS, VST) and Windows (AAX, RTAS, VST) from here.
