XILS-lab has released an update to the Syn’X polytimbral subtractive synthesizer inspired by the legendary Elka Synthex synthesizer from the ’80s and hardware analog monsters like the Oberheim Matrix 12.

XILS lab Syn'X 2.5

Version 2.5 of the synth comes with a new reverb unit, custom routing of effects, InterLayer modulations, a new preset manager, revamped GUI, more presets and on-board Help Hood.

The sound it offers the striking combination of clear and punchy DCOs with cutting multimode modelled analog filters like it’s ancestor, one of the last Vintage Polyphonic Analog Synthesizers, and a piece of Synthesis history, including the famous BBD Chorus!

And because it’s multitimbral, you can use up to 16 oscillators, 8 0df Analog Filters, 32 DADSR envelopes and Modulation Matrixes addressing any of the 132 possible destinations to build your own patches, when the 300 Factory Library Presets will be not enough.

Syn’X 2 (VST/AU/AAX) is available from Plugin Boutique for 169 EUR. The upgrade to version 2.5 is free for Syn’X 2 users.
