XILS-lab releases Oxium synthesizer plug-in

XILS-lab Oxium

XILS-lab has announced version 1.0 of Oxium, a virtual synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.

Oxium is a unique, yet cost-conscious (€99.00 EURO/$129.00 USD) Mac-compatible (OS X 10.5 — 32-bit PowerPC and Intel; Mac OS X 10.6 or later — 32- and 64-bit Intel; Audio Unit, VST, RTAS — Pro Tools 7.0 and later) and PC-compatible (Windows XP, Vista, and 7 — 32- and 64-bit; VST, RTAS — Pro Tools 7.0 and later) performance-orientated soft synth plug-in, adept at giving equal billing to still-sought-after classic analogue sounds and more adventurous modernistic tones.

Oxium is coming with more than 250 carefully chosen performance-showcasing presets from XILS-lab’s talented team of well-known, world-class sound designers including Laurent Bourgeon (Lotuzia), Simon Ball (Soundsdivine), Nori Ubukata, Pascal Laigle (Tzadi), Kelvin Ford, Ingo Weidner, Stephen Wey, Sami Rabia (Aiyn Zahev), Michael Cavallo.

Oxium is available to purchase for the introductory price of 69 EUR until August 15th, 2012 (regular 99 EUR).

Kriminal releases Felix

Kriminal Felix

Kriminal has released Felix, a freeware synthesizer inspired by the 1981 synth, the Octave Kitten.

The real powerful area of the Kitten was the modulation – the LFO / Sample+Hold routing to modulate the ADSR / VCO / VCF – it could produce many interesting effects and S&H sounds – ive tried to capture this in FELIX, as well as making it versatile in the normal spectrum of sounds.

Felix features

  • 1 VCO (saw/tri/pulse) plus white noise generator.
  • 1 LFO – sine/square/S+H.
  • 2 SubOsc’s : square (-1 and -2 oct).
  • VCF – 4pole LP self oscillating filter.
  • VCA – ADSR.
  • 200+ Presets (Michael Cavallo, Steven West, Shamanix, Luftrum, DLN and musicorner).

Felix is available as a freeware VST instrument for Windows PC.
