|"The PolyKB is a very warm and fat sounding synthesizer,with several new and interesting features that bring these lost classic sounds into the 21st Century.""
Chor'X : the Spatializer chorus !
Chor'X combines three types of Vintage Chorus effects, based on Bucket-Brigade Delay (BBD) emulation with a sophisticated True Stereo Dynamic Spatializer.
With this duo, it becomes very easy to add space , depth, and other dimensions to your instruments, and achieve complex and intriguing mixes.
The three Bucket Brigade Delay types ( BBD ) : The three Chor'X modes ( Sy, Cs and Di ) have been patiently modelled after closely studying many vintage chorus units and deciphering what made them unique.
They aim to present some of the most famous archetypal structures found in those famous vintage units : 4 BB Delays, 2 BB Delays and 2 BB delays with phase tweaks, with or without internal compander. By combing these distinct chorus types, you can create chorusing effects from the most graceful and smooth to completely wild.
But this was not enough !
The True Stereo Dynamic Engine ( TSDE ) : Some Choruses were famous for the stereo width they could add to instruments.
We pushed the concept a bit further by offering a True Stereo engine, so that you can position all the signals in a stereo image. True Stereo doesn’t mean a simple panoramic tool, with our TSDE you can place an instrument in front of the stereo field or farther back : You master the Space !
To go a bit further : We added a few unique features, that you’re used to finding in all Xils-lab instruments, features with musical meaning and sense !
Impulse Threshold : The Chor'X will not destroy the low end of your instruments, like some standard Chorus, but we also added a special Dry tool, which will let you treat percussive material while leaving the transients dry, only adding chorus to the tail of the instruments.
Dynamic Modulations : You can add automatic dynamic changes to the rate and the amount of all the BB Delay lines. This unique feature is the key to everchanging very subtle or more devastating Chorus, and combined True Stereo effects.
And finally we packed all this in an intuitive and fast UI, with 2D pads wich allow a very precise tuning of parameters like the Chorus rates, amounts etc, instant visual feedback, and the true joy of seeing your stereo image moving while the balls are dancing to the sound of your music.
