XILS-lab Releases Syn’X 2

SynX2

XILS-lab just announced the availability of Syn’X 2 analog synth emulation. Syn’X 2 is a new version of Syn’X released earlier this year and I’m surprised XILS-lab moved fast to release Syn’X 2. The first Syn’X had a few bugs I thought would be improved with a update but instead XILS-lab decided to create Syn’X 2 for purchase. Read more below.

GRENOBLE, FRANCE: music software application business XILS-lab is honored to announce accessibility of Syn’X 2– a multi- style (AAX, AU, RTAS, VST), 32- and also 64-bit polytimbral emulation of a analog synthesizer plug-in for Mac (OS X 10.5 as well as later) as well as (Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7/8) that not just remains to pay best homage to the fabulous Elka Synthex 80s-vintage Italian instrument from an original-sounding sonic perspective, yet balances that musicality against a multilayer card-based design that is motivated by similarly advanced hardware analog synthesizers, such as Oberheim’s great Matrix 12, to develop one of the most complex as well as effective virtual analog synthesizers of the modern-day age– since June 22 …

At the time of its 1982 launch the 8-voice polyphonic Elka Synthex seemed like no other synthesizer around– analog or otherwise, as well as brought with it high hopes of contributing in finishing the dominance of oversized (and overpriced) Japanese as well as American analog programmable polysynths, thanks to the 8 monophonic synthesizer circuits central to its ingenious 16-DCO driven layout by independent Italian synth-master Mario Maggi. Many– suggesting 1,000!– ICs (Integrated Circuits) were utilized in that layout, nevertheless, meaning that it was not necessarily the most reliable around as well as it did not come at low-cost. None the less– not many more ICs in each tool, in reality– were marketed prior to being stopped in 1985 (with one last manufacturing system being made specifically for legendary American singer-songwriter Stevie Wonder) as a ‘new wave’ of substantially much cheaper as well as more reliable electronic synthesizers boasting far better application brought around its unfortunate death. Not that this mattered significantly to French electronic songs pioneer Jean-Michel Jarre, that has 3 to his not trivial name to this day, with popular Laser Harp perfomances still originating exclusively from an amazing-sounding Synthex patch produced by one-time UK demonstrator/programmer Paul Wiffen.

Remarkably, Syn’X has already been readily available to acquire as well as download from the XILS-lab internet store for longer compared to the production lifespan of the original equipment synthesizer from which it attracted so much music motivation. It’s time, therefore, for a serious upgrade, and with it some extravagant functions that look past just designing the Elka Synthex …

So what is it, then, that makes Syn’X 2 so different and so much better considerably far better compared to its prodecessor? Well, would not it be wonderful if you could produce a synthesizer with the advanced multilayer design of Oberheim’s mighty Matrix 12 analog polysynth, with a wealth of matrixes per layer– effectively making it possible for versatile routing to measure up to the monstrous modular systems that preceded it in decades gone by, yet then musically wed to the large Elka Synthex sound?
