Emulation of EMS VCS3 synth

Based on the architecture of the legendary EMS VCS3 synth, XILS 3 is capable of creating both 'classic' sounds and totally new ones. Its matrix design is capable of more than 450 connection permutations, offering more routing possibilities than any other commercially available virtual synthesizer, according to XILS-lab. In addition, a built-in sequencer, based on the EMS 256 sequencer, can be used to create original and complex sequences.

XILS 3 comes with hundreds of presets, made by famous sound designers, that provide instant access to a broad range of sounds and styles ranging from modern electronica to classic 1970s retro and experimental. Of course, you can also program it yourself to create your own unique sounds.

Features:

* Three aliasing-free oscillators: sine, ramp,...

Features:

* Three aliasing-free oscillators: sine, ramp, square, triangle.
* One 2/4 poles low pass filter (a 3 pole self-oscillating mode is also planned).
* One envelope, based on two different designs, trapezoid and ADSR.
* One spring reverb.
* One ring modulator.
* One 128 steps sequencer.
* Two output static filters.
* One joy-stick.
* Three connection matrix.
* One input gate.
* One input envelope follower.
* One pitch tracker.
* One transient tracker.
* Mono/Unison/Polyphonic playing mode, up to 18 voices of polyphony.
* All parameters MIDI controllable.
* Many presets made by famous sound designers (Kevin Lamb, Chris Pitman, Cliff Douse, to name but a few).
