Xhip Synthesizer allows you to produce high quality dual-oscillator polyphonic synthesizer sounds, similar to classic poly synthesizers of the late 80s. Strings, synth pads, basses, leads, organs, pianos, bells, vocals, percussion, sound effects and more are demonstrated in the factory banks.
Factory banks and a manual can be downloaded separately from the Xhip Synthesizer page. Please read the manual for the current version if you have not yet read it as it contains an important "getting started" chapter and lots of helpful documentation for non-obvious features.
Xhip was featured in One-Synth-Challenge #85. OSC-85-Xhip
Xhip has an account at soundcloud with example audio clips available.
Amazing plugin with very high quality. There are lots of modulation options, and the oscillators have some very unique waveform options. Thanks to all the modulation, it's actually amazing for dubstep and experimental music. Honestly, you could probably make an entire drop using only this.Read Review
Excellent quality generator and beautiful UI.
I would love to see more generators from this source. Their effects are wonderful as well.Read Review
Decided to pick up Xhip again. Very lovely as it was back in my first review. The pops/clicks have been solves as far as I can tell. Being that this synth is semi-analog modeled I now understand why stereo spread is not included (though it would still be awesome).
Why not 10/10? The unison. As much as I love the fact this synth has unison, free running oscillators would make this much better. Granted it has the randomize parameter but I still hear a phasing "click"/"transient" at the beginning of each note.
Other than that this synth is a definite gold mine! Very clean. Very easy to use. Sounds very good. Extremely hard not to like.
This is an amazing free synth. Dual oscillator with 4 waveforms. There are many filter options and all sound great! It has an analog look, feel, and sound which make for some fun editing. There are quite a few modulation options which allow for a lot of control. There is unison but there is a small set back with no unison spread (to my knowledge). This synth comes packed with MIDI Learn capability and an option to change the color theme of the synth. The glide option is a nice touch which makes for amazing baselines. This synth reminds me very much of Synth 1.
Overall this synth is a steal for being a freebie. Despite the lack of a unison spread and some small audio pops while editing this is one synth I can only recommend for those who feel the need for an anaolog touch.Read Review
