With the new R6 update to XS-1, I am in sampler heaven. The most important addition, for me, is that the midi channel I've selected for an instrument holds when I change to a different soundfount, rather than jumping back to a default setting like it did before. This makes it super-fast and easy to audition tons of different instruments to find just the right one. The samples load fast, and XS-1 responds well to real-time switching.

XS-1 is making it possible for me to realize the value of the 6,000 or so soundfonts I have acquired. Even some of those that I didn't think sounded very good can be made usable by tweaking the settings in XS-1.

I use XS-1 more than any other plugin, and it's paid for itself many times over. Great work, Oskari!

Hello is someone there that is using this app on 2013 ?

I just downloaded it but i need the manual to know the controllers list besides other things, if some one wants to share it i'll be thankfull,.

Althought Jescola XS1 is an old PC program it's very similar and maybe better than Bismark Bs-16i i've installed on my iPad on this year (2013)

I will try to learn to use it standalone with minihost (another old aplication) and thru Cakewalk Proaudio 9.

Je je je, I know all of these are Old programs but i know to use that Cakewalk and still play Live with.

my own Home Made Diy Keytar, that i love so much.

So if some one is interest in this project or can help me with the manual or the controller list.

we can share knowledege and material, Thanks.

We Can change the World by Change Ourselfs... To better please

It doesn't work anymore. I use 32-bit hosts for old plugins and none of them can load XS-1 – it just fails to load.
