Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jul 05, 2012 - comment 0 comments

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

Oxium is a performance oriented synthesizer, offering both a classic pure analog sound and modern tones. with awesome real time modulations capabilities, allowing you to play a synthesizer in ways you could never have imagined.

Due to its simple and intuitive user interface Oxium is fast and easy to operate.

XIL-lab’s Oxium performance synthesizer plug-in comes with two skins.

Oxium features

  • Classic instruments : Use up to 8 Xils-lab thick and musical oscillator wave forms per patch and shapes them with the double filter structure. The main unit uses Xilslab 3rd generation zero-delay feedback filter with self-oscillation in each mode while the second offers a vocal formant mode in addition to high-pass, band-pass and low-pass modes.
  • Modern instruments : In addition to the cumulative waveforms LFO there are three D-ADSR envelopes, Oxium includes our brand new Le Masque modulator in its new incarnation with many additional features : It has now 16 freely drawable zones, horizontal and vertical quantize modes, two level parameters and, of course, you can save, load and exchange your patterns.
  • Intuitive User Interface : Oxium interface is based on a new “Flower” design and IVF (Instant Visual Feedback) concept. “Flower” design for the oscillators, filter, LFOs and glide blocks means that you can understand the structure of a whole block after a simple glance (IVF), making Oxium fun, fast and easy to understand and to master. In addition, all the modulations are all handled in a central page, with additional easy knobs, including usual musical gestures per patch: It has never been so easy to add a Vibrato, a Tremolo or an Auto Wah to your sound.
  • Serial only protected: Oxium is protected by a simple serial, without the need of any hardware dongle or chalenge response.
  • Two skins to fit with your mood.

Oxium will be available for Windows and Mac this July.

XILS-lab releases Le Masque: Delay – timeline-driven delay effects plug-in

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Jan 11, 2012 - comment 0 comments

XILS-lab has released Le Masque: Delay, a revolutionary timeline-driven delay effects plug-in for Windows and Mac, in collaboration with Le Lotus Bleu (Laurent Bourgeon).

Available in 64- and 32-bit versions, Le Masque: Delay is a Mac (OS X 10.4 and later; Audio Unit, VST, RTAS — Pro Tools 7.0 and later) and PC (Windows XP, Vista, and 7; VST, RTAS — Pro Tools 7.0 and later) compatible, polymorphic timeline-driven delay effects plug-in; it can behave like a regular digital delay, and inherits XILS-lab’s renowned filtering and audio effects technology, featured in the cutting-edge company’s lengthening line of virtual analogue soft synth plug-ins — PolyKB II (based on the RSF Polykobol II, plus extras), XILS 3 (based on the EMS VCS3, plus extras), and Synthix (Elka Synthex, and extras), and draws upon an accumulated wealth of research and development experience to allow users to speedily and intuitively perform hitherto unheard of delay-based effects.

XILS-lab Le Masque: Delay

So how, exactly, does Le Masque: Delay work, then? In a nutshell, it lets users accurately specify the part(s) of the dry signal — based on their time position and/or frequency content — that will be processed by the delay itself (accessed from within the GRID view); its associated LFO, envelope, and filter components (via the LFO & ENVELOPE view); and various modulators (within the TIME & MOD view) — masked zones within the grid area are processed by the delay while any audio data outside those masked zones remains untouched, in other words!

A mask — to which Le Masque: Delay owes its ‘nom de plume’ — is defined by its two locators: the left locator specifies the start point, the right its end; when the current transport locator enters a mask, the audio is sent through a full modulated filter into an accurate, fat-sounding delay. Unlike some other delays, the filter section is a crucial part of Le Masque: Delay — it uses XILS-lab’s renowned warm and smooth analogue filter models’ surgical-like precision to perform delicate musicals tasks, such as extracting and modifying existing parts of a drum loop (or any other loop), or transforming delayed kick drums into Simmons toms, for example. The delay area offers five dual-concentric knobs to control the delay settings (left and right FEEDBACK TIME, DRY/WET GAIN, and left and right PAN LEVEL), together with a synthesiser-type modulation wheel, while the LFO and ENVELOPE settlings can modulate the filter frequency and volume applied to the signal entering the delay.

Users can create up to eight independent masks (or zones) in the grid, each with different lengths, quantised or non-quantised locators, plus a specific level parameter; the grid can be synchronised to a DAW or its own internal clock for added flexibility.

Le Masque: Delay features

  • True stereo signal path (with independent right and left delay).
  • MIDI Sync and Stereo Link (delay modes).
  • Sync grid zone (with up to eight custom masks, each with independent length and level).
  • One multimode filter (zero-delay, self-oscillating, feedback design with drive).
  • Two independent envelopes (loop-able ADSR and AR with three trigger modes).
  • One synchronisable multi-waveform LFO (with three reset options).
  • Snap-to-grid function (to quantise mask locators on musical values).
  • Swap masked/unmasked function (in realtime).
  • Four clock modes (DAW, FIX,TAP temp, IN).
  • Realtime temp analysis function (for live performance).

Le Masque: Delay is available to purchase for 59 EUR (including VAT for EU countries). Note: this is a serial number authorised product — no hardware dongle or challenge/response system required.
