Xils-Lab Syn'X 2 v2.5 Released (Multitimbral Synthex Emulation)

Syn'X 2 v2.5 has been released

(intro price 99€ instead of 169€)

While our MiniSyn'X is 'only' an high end Synthex emulation, brought to the XXIst century with all the advantages of today's technology, it's big brother, the Syn'X 2.5, raises analog synthesis to new summits and standards.

Two keyboards, combining 8 fully independent layers with ultimate multitimbral flexibility : Up to 72 oscillators, 8 gorgeous Zdf multimode filters, 32 envelopes; 32 LFOs, 8 Glides, and more than 500 possible modulations, hardwired or customisable ………. PER PATCH !!!

And for version 2.5 we added : A new reverb unit, custom routing of effects, InterLayer modulations, a new Preset Manager, a revamped GUI/UI, more presets and on board embedded optional Help Hood

8 layers and True Unison combined : Start by thinking about an Unison Mode where you can sculpt not only the number of oscillators , but slight modulations for every parameter among hundreds, including filters, envelopes, LFOs, stereo postion, Sync, RM, FM etc. Now extend the concept to fully different layers : Complex layered sounds like large animated Pads. Huge leads and basses. Keys where every component reacts in a different way to velocity. Splits combining arpeggios, basses, keys.

What's new detailed info :
  • New Reverb Effect: Natural sounding vintage reverb unit, with HPF filter
  • Custom path for all effects & keyboards: Chorused reverb, or Chorus then reverb ? Lower Bass Split goes into Chorus, while Upper Pad goes into Phaser then Reverb. You decide !
  • New One Window integrated Preset Manager: Find the right patch within seconds, manage presets, soundbanks and create your own tags.
  • Revamped GUI/UI with Eazy and Complex mode.
  • InterLayer Modulation: Layer X can now source modulations from other layers. Very powerful.
  • More Factory presets, in different styles and flavours
  • Integrated Help engine: Blocks and areas description under the -optional- hood.
  • Catalina: Mac OS 10.15 Catalina compatibility
