XILS-lab announced the availability of their new vocoder called XILS Vocoder 5000. The XILS Vocoder 5000 is a emulation of the classic EMS Vocoder 5000 and can be had for less compared. If you looking for a cool vocoder, give XILS Vocoder 5000 a try. Read more below.
GRENOBLE, FRANCE: music software application company XILS-lab is honored to reveal availability of XILS Vocoder 5000– inspired by its costly EMS Vocoder 5000 equipment namesake (still held high in analogue admiration) as a stunning, budget friendly vocoder plug-in for Mac (32- and also 64-bit, AU, RTAS, VST 2.4, AAX, and also VST 3 for Mac OS X 10.6 or greater) and PC (32- and 64-bit, RTAS, AAX, as well as VST for Windows XP, Vista, 7, as well as 8)– as of December 23 …
A vocoder is an analysis and synthesis system used to make use of human speech. Musically talking, the vocoder is indebted to German synth pop pioneers Kraftwerk more than a lot for bringing its unique robotic-sounding voice into commercial awareness– so much so that Wikipedia also has a picture of one of their early-Seventies custom-made vocoders together with its own online definition of the word.
Put simply, XILS-labs’ software-based vocoder essentially replicates the fanciful filtering methods as well as unbelievably complex wiring of its analogue precursor to accomplish the very same organic sound, precision, and clearness. Also, the EMS Vocoder 5000 similar to the one before it, XILS Vocoder 5000 can be made to ‘speak’ clearly in English and also German– much like Kraftwerk … or in any kind of other language for that concern! Respectively reanimating the still-sought-after sounds of the EMS VCS3 synthesiser and Roland VP-330 Vocoder And also key-board in prominent plug-in type as XILS 3 and XILS V+ absolutely stood XILS-lab in good standing when it involved meaningfully modelling the EMS Vocoder 5000’s outstanding feature set of no less compared to 22 bandpass filters as well as envelope followers; oscillators (designed from the EMS VCS3); noise generator; regularity shifter; and range analyser– including its distinctive 22×22 pin matrix patchboard, enabling any type of band of the modulator signal to be connected to any sort of band of the carrier signal. While analogue vocoders like the respected EMS Vocoder 5000 usually evaluate an inbound signal by splitting it right into a number of tuned frequency bands with modulator and also carrier signals being sent through a series of tuned bandpass filters– in the case of Kraftwerk’s precious robot voices, for example, the modulator is the provider and also a microphone is a noise or sawtooth waveform– with XILS Vocoder 5000 it’s merely the exact same.
