Take Your Sounds Into a New Dimension

The XILS-lab XILS 3 will sate your vintage synth appetite. The XILS 3 is based on the classic, semi-modular EMS VCS3 - which Pete Townshend used to modulate the signal of a Lowrey organ for the sequenced intro of Who's Next's closing anthem. With this lofty pedigree, you'd expect the XILS 3 to serve up a banquet of holy-grail vintage analog goodness - and it does, indeed. Unlike it's ancestor, however, the XILS 3 is affordable - and easy to program, thanks to its powerful modularity. Fortify your arsenal with a virtual vintage modular synth: XILS-lab's XILS 3.

You've got connections

The XILS-lab XILS 3 virtual synthesizer ushers modularity and sound design into a new dimension. With more than 450 connections (audio and control signals, trig signals) available on the XILS 3, you can pretty much route anything to anywhere, giving you iron-fisted control over your sound palette. You can also use it - as did Townsend with the VCS3 - as a powerful and versatile effects processor.

Modules galore

The XILS-lab XILS 3 is fitted with three warm-sounding, alias-free analog-style oscillators, analog curve matching, 2-pole and self-oscillating 4-pole dynamic filters, fast envelopes, a noise generator, a ring modulator, and spring reverb. More than enough to whip up intensely original sonic textures.

Sequence this

The XILS-lab XILS 3 boasts an easy-to-program 128-step sequencer that can create standard 8- or 16-step fixed patterns, as well as more complex rhythms to fuel your compositional expeditions.
