Manipulate analog signals in ways which were impossible before
The XILS 3 V2.0 not only emulates the Synthi ( VCS 3 ) modular synthesizer, it also adds an emulation of the 256 Analog Sequencer, the natural companion of the VCS 3. Is that all ? No, of course, we added a SECOND Matrix, with 2 additional envelopes, one LFO, a detailed Sample and Hold module, and a Voltage processor … And some input modules : Gate, Transient, Envelope Follower and Pitch Tracker to transform the XILS 3 into an advanced Effect Processor ! This means hundreds of additional connections. Add to the pile the analog chorus with its three modes, the analog delay and the phaser … the picture emerges. In the XILS 3, you can connect everything with everything, and you get more than 800 possible different connections per patch ( ‘Only’ 583 simultaneous connections possible ).
Did we say at Audio Rate ?
An endless source of inspiration for those who want to go deep into the heart of Analog Modular Synthesis.
It’s nearly impossible to summarize what the XILS 3 can do, but, in short, here’s the list of the main modules :
6 Oscillators grouped in 3 pairs, with WaveShaping (on sine wave, saw, triangle and square)
1 Noise Oscillator ( With Noise color )
1 Analog Filter, Non Linear and zero delay Behaviors, with 3 Modes (12/18/24 dB LowPass)
3 Trapezoidal Envelope Generators, Looping EG in the time of analog (Switchable to ADSR )
2 Polyphonic LFOs ( including 1 Oscillator acting as LFO at audiorate )
Polyphonic Ring Modulator
2 independent outputs feeding the Stereo Bus, each with one analog Lp/Hp filter
Programmable Joystick Vector Controller ( up to 32+32 modulation targets )
