    XILS 3 :
    "As for sounding like a VCS3, you've got the character and quirkiness! Impressive !Really, well done."
    Kevin Lamb

Oxium detailed features:

Core Modules

  • 2 Cumulative analog modelled Oscillators ( up to 8 per patch ). PWM for all waveforms ( free running with indistinguishable aliasing Saw, Triangle, Pulse and Square ) . Advanced Glide/Portamento mode per Oscillator/ Hard Sync and Ring modulation between Oscillators.
  • 3rd Generation Zero-Delay-Feedback filters, self resonnance for all modes ( LP 24/12, BP6/12, HP) Additional second filter to choose between Formant Filter, LP , BP, HP with emphasis or articulation parameter.
  •  Flexible Double Mixer architecture ( one per filter ) with fully configurable serial or parralel modes


  • 3 freely assignable DsyncADSR envelopes.
  • 3 Multiwaveforms LFOs with Mono/Poly mode, Midi Syncable, Delay, Fade in, and note retrig parameters
  • Exclusive 2nd generation Le Masque controller modulator, with 16 freely drawable zones ( masks). Each mask has two level parameters, can trigg envelopes, or be envelope controled, the grid has vertical and horizontal snap modes. Patterns can be saved, loaded. 3 Trigger modes.
  • Central Modulation Environment : 6 freely assignable pairs of source/target parameters, 3 additional prewired pairs for common musical gestures ( Vibrato, Tremoloe, Autowha ), 6 harwired slots for real time controlers ( Mod Wheel, Pitch Bend, Aftertouch, Breath Controler. All parameters are Midi Controlable.

Music Playing

  • Advanced PolyMono Arpegiattor, with fully configurable note order, Gate and swing parameters
  • 8 Play Modes ( 5 Poly/3 Mono) allowing multiple keyboard playing techniques
  • Deep integration and interaction between Play modes, Arpegiattor modes, modulations and per voice core sound engine for organic and expressive instruments.
  • Up to 8 voices Unisson with Tune spraed parameter, Oscillator drift and Output Vintage parameters to model several aspects of analog hardware synthesiser, unique Modulation randomiser : Use these 4 parameters to customise big as life patches


  • New Stereo Delay with CrossFeedback and Damp feedback , exclusive BBD Vintage chorus, Phaser, and Double EQ with emphasis

User Interface

  • Instant Visual Feedback User Iinterface Concept based on exclusive Flower Design of Oscillators , LFOs, Filters and Glide blocks for Instant Visual Feedback of synthesizer modules. 
  • Exclusive Intelligent Feedback Pane : You’ll find here all the informations usefull to understand, then modify or adapt a preset to context. 
  • Database : Double Criteria Search Engine : Find the right patch for your track in seconds, build your own favorites soundbanks, project, CD or Live soundbanks, and export them with a single click. Cross platform preset format. 
  • A/B compare slots
  • Two skins to fit your mood



4 available waveforms.

Triangle, PWM Triangle, PWM Saw, Square, PWM Pulse.

Cross ring modulators

Several waveforms can be selected simultaneously for each of the oscillators.

Easy Pulse width modulation in a click.

Drift setting to add more or less unpredictability




Multimode Filter : Oxium multimod filter providing self-oscillating 6 filter types : 12 dB and 24 db low pass, 6 dB and 12 dB band pass, 12 dB high pass .

A special overdrive circuit can be used before or after the filter.

This filter uses our proprietary "zero-delay algorithm", providing a stuning analog feeling.



12db Filter with Formant feature : Oxium provides a second filter, 12 db low-pass, high-pass and band pass, with a new formant behavior. The vowel of this later can be selected but also modulated.


A full parallel/serial audio flow and an easy to tweak mixer, allows this second filter to give a new dimension to the substractive synthesis.





Oxium provide a new, powerful, easy to use advanced sequencer modulator, brought from  Le Masque:Delay Xils-lab effect, and adapted to the synthesizer specific modulations.

On the Grid you can perform the following tasks: create, delete and edit the different Masks, specify the length of the grid, quantize locators, swap between mask and non masked areas, and specify the background quantization of the Grid itself, horizontal wise but also vertical wise.



D-ADSR : 4 special envelopes are available

Added to the standard Attack-Decay-Sustain-Release, Oxium offers a MIDI synced Delay step.

Usefull for instance, to trig a tempo synced modulation, to open the filter a few milliseconds after the amplifier, giving some plosive effects. A wide range of new sounds can be done with this feature.


Two envelopes can loop between the end of the release and the begining of the Attack.



Polyphonic LFO : 3 Standard full of features LFOs are provided by Oxium.

Each LFO can modulate the oscillator pitch and width, the filter frequency and the amplifier level.  It also can be used as a source in the modulation matrix. 

The frequency can be synced to the Host application tempo, the modulation can also be reseted by the keyboard or freerunning and a fadein function is available.


These LFO can be polyphonic (each voice has its own LFOS) or monophonic (all the voices are using the same LFO)




These knobs set the amount of their corresponding modulation (Oscillator pitch for vibrato, VCA level for tremolo and cutoff frequency for autowha).

The internal knob set the rate of the corresponding LFO.

Standart Expression Controls : Two Destination menus are available with a very large choice.
