Analog String Machines

XILS V+ and XILS 505, two emulations of the finest string machines ever created available in a single license.

XILS 505: Paraphonic Strings, Synthesizer, Bass Synth

XILS V+: Paraphonic Strings, Human Voices, 10 band Musical Vocoder

The XILS V+ combines a Vintage 10 band Vocoder, Supreme Top Octave Divider based Strings and Human Voices, or any sophisticated layering of these three elements.

When the XILS V+ is released, in less than two weeks, everyone will be able to invoke the Top Octave Divider oscillator (T.O.D) and its unique sound, The Ensemble circuitry (Chorus) featuring a compender and no less than 4 Bucket Brigade Delays, The Voice and Vocoder Vibratos (also based on two other BBD), the 14 filters involved in the Human voices, the 3 filters used for the Strings, the 40 Vocoder filters and the sophisticated Attack, Release and Glide circuitry.

T.O.D : The Top Octave Divider Oscillator provides a unique sound that no samples, or other simple synthesis techniques can reproduce. Emulating the T.O.D, without any aliasing on the whole frequency range, with its pitch and waveform modulation, was a real challenge, worthy of XILS-lab. We are very proud of this effort and offer it to you for your inspiration and enjoyment.

XILS-lab touch : The XILS V+ would not however be a real XILS-lab instrument if we did not add a lot of functions and possibilities that were not present in the original machine, some giving access to its internal circuitry and parameters. And some being totally new.

Important Note : Please note that the XILS V+ is protected by a dongle : You'll need an iLok 1 or 2, or USB-eLicenser to play it.

X-505

The Analog Orchestra String Machine.

It's a String Machine, it's also a Synthesiser... a Bass Synth.

And it can be the three of them simultaneously, which is why the original unit was advertised as 'The Analog Orchestra'.

We also added a Vintage Analog Human Choir Machine(as an alternative oscillator source for the Synthesiser Section) and exposed numerous hidden parameters of the vintage String Machine model.

The X-505 offers an amazing 49 notes of polyphony, with all the layering, sources mixing, and tweaking possibilities of it's glorious ancestor, one of the most versatile and powerful String Machines ever built, including the precious balance between the Strings 4' and 8' registers, and individual settings for all the inputs of the quadruple (yes 4) BBD Chorus unit. The juicy sounding analog Phaser and a natural sounding vintage reverb add to the pile.

The result : A much larger sound palette. You can sculpt precisely huge Strings/Brass/Bass layers, or Voice/Strings Sections. Thick basses or Leads. And, combining the monophonic filter engine and the TOD oscillators, play parts that can't be replicated with any other synthesizers.

X-505 in short:

  • Oscillator: The mother of all sources. One faithfully emulated, aliasing free, TOD (Top Octave Divider) Oscillator providing up to 49 voices of polyphony.
  • A String Section, with it's own filter, Waveform mangling, AR settings.
  • A Synthesiser Section with dedicated ADSR, 24db Analog Filter with envelope and LFO modulations, various sound sources (Rocker switches) and the Second Touch special retrigger feature.
  • A Human Voice Section with custom formant and balance settings.
  • A Bass Section with three cumulative waveforms. Each waveform can be filtered in the BASS panel.
  • One Main LFO to control the Vibrato. And another LFO freely assignable in the Mod Matrix.
  • Several Envelope Parameters for each section. A global ADSR for the Synth Section. And still, another DADSR envelope freely assignable in the Mod Matrix.
  • A thick sounding quadruple BBD Chorus/Ensemble unit. (Each section has it's own send level).
  • A raw Analog Phaser effect. A Vintage Natural sounding reverb. A True Stereo Space effect.
  • A Modulation Matrix, with 6 nodes addressing 14 sources and 24 destinations. Access to a lot of secret hardware parameters.
  • A special Glide Section, an advanced polyphonic Arpeggiator.
  • And finally, all parameters can be controlled via MIDI Cc in your Daw (or Live).
