Soft / VST Instruments 12-04-2016
The PolyKB captures the sound and spirit of the legendary RSF PolyKobol Analog synthesizer, including one of its most stunning features : A continuous morphing Oscillator, which can be fully modulated by many sources.

This alone would set it apart from all the other common analog synth recreations, but it wouldn’t be a XILS-lab instrument if it didn't have some innovative and powerful expression tools on board.

Three different Modulation Matrix tools, including our powerful exclusive PolyMYX (Polyphonic Modulation YX pad ), which will make each note played on the PolyKB unique.

The Stereo scene can be controlled by a state of the art Unison mode, combined with the exclusive DynaMYX (Dynamic stereo Modulation YX pad). Get the total control on your Stereo Scene for impressive pads or leads, and even add a little randomness to get sophisticated acoustic spaces. Move the voices through the stereo the scene. You have never had so much artistic control over the stereo field.

A revolutionary 8 part Polyphonic Sequencer, with live recording, velocity editing and a sophisticated Step Play mode. ( Useful for live chord pattern playing )

Of course you can mix all the above to achieve spectacular instruments, arpeggios or sequences. Add to this


Two aliasing-free oscillators with smooth continuous morphing abilities

A 4 pole Low Pass filter with delicate to full screaming but always pleasurable resonance ( Self oscillation capable )

Two syncable multi featured LFOs with advanced modulating features and two ADSR envelopes.

Ability to assign Midi CC to ALL parameters for a complete control.

One arpeggiator, A vintage chorus and delay on board, a Midi Synced S&H.

Soft / VST Instruments 12-04-2016
The miniSyn’X emulates with the highest level of accuracy an Italian Beauty of the 80’s. One of the last specimens of the 80’s polyphonic analog monsters.

The golden Age of DCO and VCF
Like its ancestor, it combines punchy and clear DCOs (Digital Controlled Oscillators) with cutting analog multimode filters: the unique sound of an era.

Simple, Flexible, Powerful : Splits, Layers and Singles Patches
Like its instigator, the miniSyn’X combines 2 independent synth engines in a disarming clear one panel view, enabling you to build thick or complex stacks, captivating split sounds in a flash, as well as classic analog single sounds.

Layers can benefit from the same rich sounding double analog BBD Chorus found on the original model, once again very closely emulated. And the stunning original Glide section is here too.

Mini in the name, and in the price. Maxi in the sound, and possibilities
Due to its duotimbral native architecture, the miniSyn'X is very versatile, and offers any patches from raw analog sounds, to silky complex evolving pads.

It’s a Xils. So we added a lot of things the venerable ancestor could not do: Cumulative Oscillator waveforms, cumulative LFO waveforms, an Intelligent Patch Creation system, an enhanced 4 part polysequencer, some clever stereo scene control, polyphony handling per engine, Gang Mode Editing, an enhanced Joystick, and a large library of presets.

New Technological breakthrough:
The miniSyn’X uses the exclusive 0 Delay Feedback PWM algorithm recently developed by Xils-Lab, that greatly improves the quality and perception of patches using PWM (Like the legendary Laser Harp sound)

Inspiring to operate, easy to program, gorgeous to play, and …. thoroughly automatable
On top of that, we added some adaptive UI/GUI design, so that you only see the controls you need at a time, making the MiniSynx a breeze to control and program, with solo modes for each synth engine, simple and effective layer control functions.

And a bit of AI, to make patch creation a joy (Exclusive Smart Load function in Double and split mode will guarantee you’ll quickly generate a good percentage of useful and rewarding patches created on the fly)

And finally, every miniSyn’X parameter, from filter and oscillators to the sequencer track mute buttons and gate control is automatable via Midi CC. Paradise for those who like to push automation beyond limits.

The miniSyn’X in short
Two synth engines that can be combined in 3 modes (Double, Split, Single )
Single Panel GUI for each Synthesizer engine
Up to 10 Oscillators per patch (Cumulative OSC technology, 2 x 5 )
Modelled DCO Oscillators, PWM for each waveform, 0DF PWM Algorithm
Multimode analog Filter using 3rd gen 0DF Filter technology (up to 2 per patch )
Modelled Ultra Fast Envelope Generators (up to 4 per patch )
Smart Load TM exclusive technology to create new interesting sounds quickly
Gang Edit in Double and Split mode
All parameters automatable via Midi Cc control (including Sequencer parts )
Three mode BBD Analog Chorus Unit
Only Serial Protected

The XILS 4 emulates a prototype that was never released, the EMS VCS4, based on two intricate and interacting VCS 3 ( Synthi) cores. We also coupled them with the famous 256 analog polysequencer

Is that all ? No, of course, we added a SECOND Matrix, offering 2 additional envelopes, one LFO, a detailed Sample and Hold module, and a Voltage processor. Then invited Velocity, Modulation Wheel, Aftertouch, and all the Midi Cc to join the party.

Which means hundreds of additional connexions. Add to that, the analog chorus with its three modes, the analog Delay and Phaser, 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.

Did we say at Audio Rate ?

The XILS 4 can also be used as a powerful VST effect processor, processing incoming audio signals, so we added more –input- modules : Gate, Transient, Envelope Follower and Pitch Tracker.

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

It’s impossible to summarize what the XILS 4 can do, but, in short, here’s the list of the main modules :

12 Aliasing free Oscillators, grouped in 6 pairs, with WaveShaping, 3*2 Hard synchronization modes, + 2 additional Noise oscillators
2 Analog Multimode Filters, Non Linear and zero delay Behaviors, with 3 Modes (6/12/24 dB)
4 Trapezoidal, looping, Envelope Generators. ( Switchable to standard ADSR )
5 Polyphonic LFOs ( including 4 Oscillator acting as LFO at audio rate )
Polyphonic Ring Modulator and VCA engine
Cascade Mode : Synthesizer 1 can feed Synth 2 engine inputs
4 independent outputs feeding the Stereo Bus, each with one analog Lp/Hp filter
2 Programmable Joystick Vector Controllers ( up to 32+32 modulation targets )
Polyphonic Sequencer with 3 independent lines, Slew rates, 3 recording modes.
Sequencer can behave as modulation source.
Pitch Tracker, Enveloppe Follower, Transient, Gate, Sample & Hold Modules
Chorus, Delay, Phaser, Spring Reverb
6 Play modes (including Unison 2/4/6 ), Polyphonic and mono Portamento/Glissando/Legato, 2 different Keyboard Scaling, Polyphonic Aftertouch and VCA handling.
700+ presets made by worldwide famous Sound Designers
Preset Database Engine ( Find the right patch in a flash, create your own tags )
Comprehensive manual with a getting started and tutorial sections
More than 100 parameters mappable to midi controllers
More than 1100 possible connexions per patch ! ! !

Performance, Modulations and Dynamic Control Engines :
RITA Performance Module (Realtime Interactive Transformation Area) : Control R.A.M.S.E.S. by playing live on a MIDI keyboard only using Note On, Note pitch, Velocity, Mod Wheel, Aftertouch, Control Pedal, Keyboard tracking etc.
Filter Control : Get total control of the multimode Analog filter with dedicated hardwired Enveloppe, LFOs, and the incredibly powerfull exclusive Xils-Lab-Le Lotus Bleu *Masks Technology.

What are the Masks ?

Mask can be seen as advanced StepSequencers, with the main difference that the length and time position of each step/Mask is completely FREE.
Simplicity and depth

Simplicity and Depth :

Easy and intuitive

Want to keep it simple ? Ramses includes tons of presets to get you started. Grid-Masks Combos and RITA Live module also have their own dedicated templates, and you can save your own. Need instant inspiration ? Use the Random button, and generate myriads of rythmic patterns in a flash.
Intermodulations and depth in programming

A simple example : In R.A.M.S.E.S., each Mask-Step can retrigg one LFO, while this LFO can control the Decay of the filter envelope, and the filter CutOff as well. You could still control the output level of this LFO with the Mod Wheel, while controlling it’s rate with the Pitch Bend. Etc Etc. That’s how deep you can go

Listen to RAMSES, Watch Tutorial Video

Here are an example of R.A.M.S.E.S. :
