Xils Lab announces the Syn’X 2 virtual synth
Xils Lab is now accepting pre-orders for the 2nd version of their Syn’X virtual synth, for which a beta is already available.

You’ll also find a new Guitar mode that offers two voices assignable to MIDI channels. This mode was initially intended for those who play MIDI guitar, but you can also use is with drum pads.
Syn’X 2 features two programming environment, the simplified Easy mode and Layer, which allows for creating complex sounds.
