"My 2 favourite analog synths are probably the VCS3 and the Synthex.
So when I heard that a company was releasing a software version, I was quite cautious..
Today the XILS 4 is one of my favourite plugins..!!
I find the same excitement working with it, than with the original, plus lots of other features.. 2 Vcs3 interconnected sequencers.. Etc the sound is great and it is one of the best in the market for experimenting with new ways of creating sounds ..!!
I just got the miniSyn'X and I am so excited as well because the Synthex is a fantastic rarity.
Thank you to XILS LAB for giving everyone the possibility to play with them..!"

For XILS 3 owners : Upgrade to the XILS 4 for only 49€
The XILS 4 emulates a prototype that was never released: an EMS VCS4, based on two intricate and interacting VCS 3 (Synthi) cores. We also coupled these with the famous 256 analog Poly-sequencer.
Take the 2nd huge Pin Matrix and its numerous additional modules:
Envelopes, LFOs, S&H, Voltage Processor, Pitch Tracker, Transient etc. Or the recreation of the unique, powerful 256 analog Poly-sequencer, intimately tied to the synthesis engines. Add to that the analog Chorus (3 modes), Delay, Phaser and the Spring Reverb, and the full picture emerges.
In the XILS 4, you can connect everything with everything, giving you more than 1140 possible different connections per patch. Did we say at Audio Rate?
It’s an endless source of inspiration for those who want to go deep into the heart of Analog Modular Synthesis.
It’s impossible to fully summarize what the XILS 4 can do, but, in short, here’s the list of the main modules:
With the XILS 4 research Synthesizer, things that were impossible yesterday become possible with never ending programming possibilities.
Not sure you’re ready for modular monsters ? This synthesizer includes a new preset factory library with more than 350 presets that were especially designed for it, and also includes the XILS 3 factory library.
It also includes tutorial patches, helping you to climb the first steps of your modular life.
