A new Xils-Lab synth is on the way
Xils-Lab will launch next week the new Xils V+ virtual synth modeled on a vintage instrument.
The Xils V+ synth features four main elements: a vintage 10 band vocoder, a string section, a human voice section and an arpeggiator. The instrument uses a TOD oscillator emulation (Top Octave Divider) with pitch management and waveform modulation. You can mix the mic input, human voices and strings levels via the Balance section which features three faders.
Xils Lab also included a chorus (Ensemble) with a compander and 4 Bucket Brigade Delays, vibratos for the human voices and the vocoder (also based on two BBD), 14 filters for the human voices, 3 for the strings, 40 for the vocoder, and attack, release and glide controls.
Xils V+ will be available on May 25th as VST 2.4 / 3, AU and AAX 32 and 64-bit instrument and effect plug-ins for Mac and Windows. It will require an iLok 1/2 or eLicenser USB dongle. Its price is still to be announced.
Xils-Lab gives you the opportunity to win one two Xils V+ licenses (two winners will be picked) by finding which of the two A/B samples for each of the 7 audio examples belongs to the Xils V+ and the original instrument. You can listen to the audio examples on www.xils-lab.com/pages/XILS-VPLUS_Contest.html and e-mail the answer to the editor.
