An Iconic Vocoder for Your Soft Synth Collection!
NOTE: This plug-in requires an eLicenser or iLok (not included) for authorization.
There's something charming about a classic 10-band vocoder that you just don't find in most software versions, but the XILS-lab XILS V+ totally nails it. In addition to its distinctly vintage sound, Sweetwater musicians really dig the XILS V+'s advanced functions, such as its Supreme Top Octave Divider, which lets you layer synthetic strings or human voice sounds on top of your effect. What's more, you don't have to be sound purist to appreciate the quality and clarity you'll get from XILS V+, which remains free from audible aliasing even at extreme settings.XILS-lab XILS V+ Vocoder Synthesizer Virtual Instrument at a Glance:
- A classic analog vocoder keyboard reborn for your software music rig
- Top Octave Divider Oscillator lets you layer on iconic synth sounds
- Dig in deep with onboard effects, modulation options, and more
If you don't immediately recognize the aesthetics of the XILS-lab XILS V+ graphic user interface, that's okay - there really aren't a lot of Roland VP-330 Vocoder Plus keyboards out there any more. A unique vocoder known almost as well for its warm strings and vocal sounds as its characteristic 10-band vocoder effect, the VP-330 serves as a great stepping off point for the XILS V+ plug-in, providing you with logical controls that allow you to create complex sounds, without tearing out your hair. At the same time, XILS V+ lets you go beyond the physical limitations of the original hardware, opening up exciting synthesis options that put classic sounds and effects in a whole new light.Top Octave Divider Oscillator lets you layer on iconic synth sounds
At the heart of the XILS V+ is a classic 10-band vocoder carrier/modulator, which you can use in a number of ways, including with the internal synthesis engine. Cooler still, XILS V+ includes the Top Octave Divider Oscillator from the VP-330, which gives you access to classic string and human voice synthesis sounds. Switches let you select which part of the keyboard triggers these synth sounds, and extensive controls let you dial in a wide range of tones. And when you layer vocoder, strings, and voice sounds together the result is simply epic.Dig in deep with onboard effects, modulation options, and more
You can climb under the hood of the XILS V+, thanks to the extensive options available via the advanced settings panels. First up, there's the Mixer/Arp panel, which lets you mix the Human Voice oscillators, tweak the Strings filter shape, and set up the onboard arpeggio generator. In the Vocoder panel, the XILS V+ lets you get your hands on the pitch tracker, adjusting the attack and release times of the Analyze engine. The Freeze and Water controls are also fun and exciting ways to create totally unexpected tones. Want to spice up your sound with effects? No problem. The Effects panel lets you lay on phaser, reverb, and XILS-lab's famed Stereo Space effect. Finally, there's the Modulations panel, which lets you modulate over 14 sources and 24 destinations via LFOs, and a polyphonic envelope.XILS-lab XILS V+ Vocoder Synthesizer Virtual Instrument Features:
